The Ravens are now 7-0 in games with five sacks or more.

Defensive coordinator Dean Pees occasionally lined up Dumervil and Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs in overloads on the same side. Dumervil led the defense with 2.5 sacks with defensive linemen Arthur Jones and DeAngelo Tyson recording one sack apiece, and outside linebacker Pernell McPhee splitting one sack with Dumervil.

"[Pees] had a hell of a scheme dialed up for us, and props to our linebackers coach [Ted Monachino]," said Dumervil, who has eight sacks this year. "It's good when you have a [2011] Defensive Player of the Year like Suggs that can move around. Not all pass rushers can flip like that, and for me to be able to feed off that is great."

Dalton was hit nine times as the Ravens also forced him to throw it early with Webb blitzing off the edge.

"I thought our defensive coaches did a great job of coaching the pass-rush lanes," Harbaugh said. "Pass-rush lanes were very disciplined. Our one-on-one pass rushes were really excellent. And then the blitzes were just well timed.

"We got some good pressure from our nickel, from our linebackers and our free safeties. [Pees] did a good job of mixing up all of the pressures. What makes that work is the coverage behind the pressures, so you can't get a quick throw out."

Injury wrap up

Left offensive guard A.Q. Shipley left the game in the second half with a neck stinger before going back in the game after being replaced by Jah Reid.

Shipley went through the NFL protocol under league concussion guidelines, but was determined to be free of symptoms.

“I was just kind of stunned from the hit, but there was nothing with the head, just the stinger,” Shipley said. “It took most of the third quarter for me to pass all the tests, and then they threw me back in there. I was good to go.”

Ravens nose tackle Haloti Ngata injured his left knee in the first quarter, but returned to the game in the second quarter.

Although clearly favoring the left knee, Ngata finished with five tackles and a pass deflection.

Ngata had three early tackles, including a solo stop in which he slammed Bernard to the ground to hold him to a yard.

Middle linebacker Daryl Smith played through hamstring and lower back injuries and had nine tackles. He limped off the field in overtime and was replaced by Josh Bynes, but said it wasn't serious.

“It was bothering me a little bit,” Smith said. “With a little rehab, it should be all right.”

Cornerback Jimmy Smith started and made it through the game without aggravating his groin injury. He finished with five tackles, one for a loss, and two pass deflections.

‘I felt great," said Smith, who returned to practice on Friday after being rested Wednesday and Thursday. "I didn’t really feel whatever I’ve got going on. I just went out there and studied tape more than ever this week for the simple fact that I wasn’t going to be out there.”

Quiet game for Rice

Three-time Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice's season-long trend of limited production continued Sunday. He was limited to 30 rushing yards on 18 carries and six receptions for 26 yards.

However, Rice did contribute in overtime on the game-winning drive as he caught a pass for 13 yards while rushing for only six yards on four carries after regulation.

"It felt good, man," Rice said. "It felt good to actually get open and actually some space where I could run. It's always good for me to help out any way I can. Things happen in games, we happened to overcome this one."

End zone
