Aaron Wilson, reporter: In dismantling the Falcons, the Ravens' defense was dominant and had a shutout bid going until midway through the fourth quarter. The Ravens sacked quarterback Matt Ryan five times and hit him eight times overall. Outside linebackers Elvis Dumervil and Pernell McPhee had two sacks apiece. Outside linebacker Terrell Suggs tackled Ryan for a safety and a sack late in the fourth quarter to put the game away. Middle linebacker Daryl Smith had one of his better games, with 11 tackles, as the Ravens contained the Falcons' running game. The Ravens exploited a soft Falcons offensive line. Although quarterback Joe Flacco wasn't sharp overall and was intercepted twice, he did enough to win the game. Running back Justin Forsett provided a steady, chain-moving presence. And tight end Owen Daniels scored his third touchdown of the season and caught six passes for 58 yards on eight targets. The offensive line struggled at times, particularly rookie left tackle James Hurst as he was flagged for three holding penalties. In his Ravens debut as he returned from a six-game suspension, safety Will Hill had two tackles, one for a loss and a quarterback hit on a blitz. He looks like a clear upgrade over free safety Darian Stewart, but they split time in his first game back. The Ravens improved to 3-0 against the NFC South this season and are now 3-1 at home.
