A recap of the Ravens' 13-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday night:

Thumbs up


The defense shut down the Falcons' Michael Vick, holding the Pro Bowl quarterback to no completions and 8 yards rushing in four series. Vick left with 4:20 left in the first quarter with a broken right fibula. ... Ron Johnson had four catches for 108 yards, solidifying himself as the team's fourth receiver behind Travis Taylor, Frank Sanders and Marcus Robinson. ... Often overlooked nose tackle Kelly Gregg had a team-high five tackles and deflected a Vick pass in the end zone. ... Derrick Frost placed five of his six punts inside the 20-yard line, including four inside the 11. The undrafted rookie likely will punt for just one more week as Dave Zastudil recovers from a strained hamstring. ... J.R. Jenkins boomed two of his four kickoffs into the end zone, boosting his chances of making the team as a kickoff specialist.

Thumbs down


The offense converted four of 16 third-down plays. ... The Ravens started five drives at their 44-yard line or closer but managed just one field goal on those drives. ... In a span of 7 1/2 minutes of the first half, the starting offense was flagged for three false starts (right guard Bennie Anderson, right tackle Ethan Brooks and receiver Marcus Robinson). ... The worst of the Ravens' three fumbles came when the Falcons recovered running back Dameon Hunter's miscue and returned it 67 yards for a touchdown. For the second straight week, a Ravens offensive turnover led to a touchdown. ... Return specialist Hugh Smith, subbing for the injured Lamont Brightful, averaged 1.8 yards on four punt returns and fumbled once.


"The offense needs more consistency. But I'd have to say that all in all, we improved from last week. That's what it's all about in the league." - All-Pro left tackle Jonathan Ogden on the starting offense's one half of work.

Stat to watch

201. Average yards of total offense allowed by the Ravens' dominating defense in two preseason games.
