Jeff Zrebiec, reporter: I'm not sure the fake field goal was necessary, but the Ravens did exactly what they should have done -- and needed to do -- against an overmatched opponent. The offense got its swagger back and several players who have been quiet recently, like Dennis Pitta, Ed Dickson and Jacoby Jones, made their presence felt. The defense caused some turnovers and was generally solid. And even some of the banged-up players, like Haloti Ngata, Jimmy Smith and Ed Reed, got some or all of the afternoon off. With a showdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers looming, the Raiders coming into town was exactly what the Ravens needed.
