Although Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb wasn't exactly thrilled with his performance, he played every defensive snap for the first time this season Sunday during a 29-7 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Webb has dealt with a lower back injury for the majority of the season, but he is getting healthier now and has upgraded his stamina and mobility. He had six tackles and one pass defense against the Falcons, but also allowed eight catches for 83 yards on 10 passes thrown in his direction with a long reception surrendered of 24 yards.

"I'm coming along," Webb said. "I just got to keep getting better. I gave up a couple balls. I'm happy about the win, but I got to get better.

"The defense played their butts off. We gave up stuff here and there, but the effort was 120 percent. It was awesome."

Meanwhile, strong safety Matt Elam's playing time was reduced drastically from his usual workload, getting just 22 snaps on defense. Elam has struggled in pass coverage throughout the season.

Back from a six-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy, Will Hill played 22 snaps at free safety in his regular-season debut.

Darian Stewart played 44 snaps at safety, the same amount as rookie Terrence Brooks.
