It's been a rough season for Dickson, who damaged his reputation with so many miscues with one of his dropped passes resulting in an interception for quarterback Joe Flacco against the Buffalo Bills.

As the replacement for Dennis Pitta while he recovers from a fractured, dislocated right hip, Dickson knew much more was expected out of him.

"It felt pretty good," Dickson said. "It's kind of past due, but you build on top of that. I still think the big game is coming, the best is yet to come.

"There's nothing that's going to get my confidence down. It's never going to be as good as you think it is or as bad as you think it is. Even professionals have to work on their craft."

Webb's leg holds up

Webb said he didn't aggravate his strained hamstring, starting one week after getting hurt and not finishing the game in a loss to the Bills.

Webb started and recorded four tackles and two pass deflections.

"At first I was kind of worried it might act up, but I didn't feel a thing," Webb said. "It came along, great win and I finished healthy."

Webb was primarily assigned to cover Dolphins $60 million wide receiver Mike Wallace, who caught seven passes for 105 yards on 16 targets. The Dolphins frequently went after Webb, but Wallace never got in the end zone.

"My goal personally was to stop Mike Wallace, or at least contain him," Webb said. "He's a great wide receiver, so you have to be on point when you are playing a guy like that."

Tucker hits game-winner

Ravens kicker Justin Tucker performed well in the clutch, booting a 44-yard game-winning field goal with 1:42 remaining.

It's the fourth game-winner of his career and capped a day where he connected on four field goals, including previous kicks from 42, 50 and 25 yards.

"It's definitely good to come in here and be able to get our first road win of the season," Tucker said. "It's definitely a good feeling to hop on the plane knowing as a team we got the job done and individually I was able to pull my weight."
