Injuries are beginning to take a toll on both the Ravens and New York Giants. Cornerback Samari Rolle and wide receiver Mark Clayton both went into the locker room for X-rays on their ankles, but both were negative.
What was interesting was who came in to replace the two starters. Nickel back Corey Ivy replaced Rolle, and Derrick Martin, who was inactive for eight of the team's first 11 games last season, was the first player in as the nickel back.
Clarence Moore, who caught two passes for one yard last season, joined Demetrius Williams in the offense's two-receiver set. Moore caught a pass for four yards in the first quarter.
New York lost cornerback Sam Madison (pulled hamstring), wide receivers Michael Jennings (ruptured Achilles tendon), Steve Smith (concussion) and safety Will Demps (dislocated elbow).
WHO'S RUNNING THE ROCK?: Forget quarterback controversy. Mike Anderson carried the football three times for 37 yards, McGahee six times for three yards.
WAVING THE YELLOW FLAG: After incurring just three penalties for 23 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles last Monday, the Ravens had committed nine penalties for 45 yards in the first half. Five of those penalties were assessed to the defense.
LLOYD LETS IT GO: Kickoff specialist Rhys Lloyd didn't need much time to acclimate himself to American football. The native of Dover, England, booted his two kickoffs into the end zone, one resulting in a touchback.
