Joe Flacco was gone before the first quarter was over. Carlos Dunlap's interception of Tyrod Taylor was costly, but his running gave them a new option.
Running backs: B+
Like Flacco, Ray Rice was removed early. Bernard Pierce and Taylor ran well. Anthony Allen played creditably, too.
Baltimore's three leading receivers were Ed Dickson, Deonte Thompson and David Reed. Won't win many games that way.
Offensive line: C-
The offensive line, which featured backups galore allowed four sacks, three while Taylor was there another when Flacco was playing.
Defensive line: A
Without Haloti Ngata, the Ravens still held the Bengals to just 49 yards rushing. Very impressive. Ma'ake Kemoeatu recorded a sack, his first this season.
No Terrell Suggs, no Ray Lewis, but a solid job by this unit. Paul Kruger recorded his team-leading ninth sack. Unheralded Josh Bynes had nine tackles.
Defensive backs: B+
Andy Dalton was held to just 78 yards in the first half. Backup Bruce Gradkowski completed just five passes. There were no interceptions.
Special teams: C+
Justin Tucker missed a field goal, just his third. Sam Koch wasn't especially sharp, but Cincinnati's return game wasn't a factor.
