Ed Dickson runs through Ed Reed, produces season-high for yardage

Ravens tight end Ed Dickson ran through a seemingly reluctant tackler Sunday.

Dickson busted through a weak tackle attempt by New York Jets free safety Ed Reed -- the 2004 NFL Defensive Player of the Year and former Ravens nine-time Pro Bowl selection -- on a 27-yard reception during the second quarter of a 19-3 win at M&T Bank Stadium.

The catch, followed by a 13-yard reception by Dickson on the same drive, led to a 33-yard Justin Tucker field goal before halftime.

"I wanted to run all day," Dickson said. "I [saw] Ed Reed and I sized him up and kind of cut it back. Those are the type of plays the team needs and the kind of plays I need to make to be on a roll and keep the drive alive."

Dickson finished with a season-high 55 receiving yards on three receptions and now has 15 catches for 195 yards this season.

Dickson caught the 27-yarder, his second-longest reception of what's been a fairly quiet season, after being unable to haul in a low throw from backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

"Me and Tyrod worked on that play all week," Dickson said. "I put that on myself. It was a little bit low. The next one, they came right back to me."
