Instant analysis from Ravens' 33-31 loss to Vikings

What our reporters and editors thought of the Ravens' loss in the Metrodome:

Jamison Hensley: Maybe the Ravens can call [Matt] Stover. Oh that's right.

Mike Preston: MATT STOVER.

Kevin Van Valkenburg: Wow. Let's start with that. Wow. What a wild game. Midway through the second half, it looked like the Ravens had no chance, and then suddenly they were leading by a point with three minutes to play, then they lost that lead, then they couldn't make a field goal to win. Just crazy. Give Joe Flacco credit for repeatedly picking himself up off his back and finding open receivers. And give Brett Favre credit for making plays, too. He moved around in the pocket and was great with pump fakes. Baltimore's defense was awful at times, but it also rose to the occasion late. Obviously Steve Hauschka has got to feel bad, but the Ravens showed some real guts by fighting back. The Vikngs are a very good team.

Ken Murray: The Ravens need the bye week now after a brilliant comeback. Steve Hauschka needs to go into the witness protection program.

Ron Fritz: Great comeback, but where has the Ravens' defense gone? Not one of their cornerbacks can cover anyone. Veteran kicker for Vikings, young kicker for Ravens. Ball game.
