The pass rush might be even better than we first suspected. In the loss to the Broncos, the Ravens sacked Manning -- whose quick trigger finger makes him tougher to bring down than athletic freaks like Michael Vick and Colin Kaepernick -- three times and hit him a few other times. Against the Browns, the Ravens swarmed quarterback Brandon Weeden before he left the game with a thumb injury late in the fourth quarter. Defensive coordinator Dean Pees threw some clever blitzes at him, but the Ravens also were able to generate good pressure when they sent a standard four-man rush. They sacked Weeden five times and hit him seven other times, including a hard, legal hit by rush linebacker Terrell Suggs. On one blitz, which was a microcosm of the defense's performance, four or five Ravens crashed through the offensive line and converged on Weeden, burying him in a half-ton pig pile. Inside linebackers Daryl Smith and Arthur Brown were credited with half sacks, but it could have been split between a few Ravens, including Elvis Dumervil and Haloti Ngata. The Ravens have eight sacks through two games, including two apiece for Suggs and Dumervil. At this rate, the Ravens could lead the NFL in sacks at season's end.
