Ravens report card for win over Giants

QUARTERBACK: A

Joe Flacco bounced back from a rough showing against the Denver Broncos with one of his top performances of the season. He finished 25-of-36 for 309 yards with two touchdown passes and another score on a quarterback sneak.

RUNNING BACK: A

Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce both eclipsed 100 yards on the ground. Rice had 158 yards from scrimmage - 107 rushing and 51 receiving - and one touchdown. Pierce had a career-high 123 yards on 14 carries.

WIDE RECEIVERS/TIGHT ENDS: A

Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith combined for 181 yards and a touchdown on 12 catches. Dennis Pitta chipped in with 56 yards on four catches.

OFFENSIVE LINE: A

Michael Oher had three penalties, but the offensive line paved the way for a season-high 224 rushing yards and held a potent Giants pass rush without a sack.

DEFENSIVE LINE: A

Haloti Ngata had four tackles and a sack and Art Jones had a tackle and two quarterback hits. Baltimore limited New York to just 67 rushing yards.

LINEBACKERS: A

Dannell Ellerbe had a team-high five tackles and Brendon Ayanbadejo finished with three tackles, a sack and two quarterback hurries.

SECONDARY: A

Cary Williams played well, as did Corey Graham, and Chykie Brown had by far the best game of his young career working in the nickel. Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw for just 150 yards and standout wide receivers Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks combined for just 21 yards on three catches.

SPECIAL TEAMS: A

Justin Tucker made three field goals and the Ravens' coverage teams limited dangerous kick returner David Wilson to an average of just 23 yards per kick return.
