"We always believe in ourselves," Smith said. "We never think we're out of it."
The Ravens’ last sack prior to Smith was recorded by strong-side outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil when he sacked New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith during a 19-3 victory on Nov. 24.
Outside linebacker Terrell Suggs’ last sack was six games ago on Nov. 3 when he brought down Cleveland Browns quarterback Jason Campbell.

Milestones for T. Smith
Wide receiver Torrey Smith eclipsed the 1,000-yard receiving mark for the first time in his career.
The former Maryland standout caught four passes for 69 yards and now has 59 receptions for a career-high 1,032 receiving yards this season.
In the first half, Smith broke a Ravens franchise record with his 36th reception of 25 yards or more to pass Derrick Mason.
"The victory is the most important thing," Smith said. "The other stuff just comes with the territory."
The Ravens got their leading pass rusher back Monday night when Dumervil returned from a bruised, sprained ankle that sidelined him for one game.
Dumervil hadn't missed a game this season until the Ravens' 29-26 win over the Minnesota Vikings last week ending his streak of 144 consecutive games.
Dumervil appeared to have his usual mobility with one solo tackle, two quarterback hits and a pass deflection during the first half.
"I felt pretty good, considering the circumstances," Dumervil said. "It was cool, the rest helped. I did the best I could."
With Dumervil active, the Ravens scratched rookie outside linebacker John Simon, who was active against Minnesota.
The Ravens also deactivated wide receiver Deonte Thompson, center Ryan Jensen, running back Bernard Scott, safeties Brynden Trawick and Omar Brown and defensive tackle Brandon Williams.
The Ravens had just four wide receivers active: Smith, Jacoby Jones, Marlon Brown and Tandon Doss.
Ravens tight end Dallas Clark was active, one week after being a healthy scratch.
The NFL salary cap is projected to rise to $126.3 million in 2014, an increase of 2.6 percent.
The Ravens are currently $1.512 million under this year’s salary-cap limit of $123 million and can carry over that excess space into next year.
