How The Baltimore Sun's reporters and editors saw the Ravens' 16-13 win over the Rams today:

Alexander Pyles, Ravens editor: The Ravens were out of this game until the fourth quarter -- perhaps in a daze after Justin Forsett broke his arm -- and made more than enough mistakes to rightfully lose. The Rams, though, made more and at more critical moments. Just a couple of bad teams playing a truly ugly game, folks. Justin Tucker kicked his third game-winning field goal this season, but his troubles from beyond 50 yards (he missed twice Sunday) are concerning.

Peter Schmuck, columnist: This was the ultimate example of any win being a good win. The Ravens, frankly, played horribly until the fourth quarter before rebounding from a 10-point deficit to record their third victory of the year. Kicker Justin Tucker got a measure of redemption with the game-winning field goal after missing two other attempts. But it all came with a heavy price. Running back Justin Forsett's season came to an apparent end when he broke his arm in the first half and Joe Flacco was noticeably limping as he ran down the clock in anticipation of the final kick. Stay tuned.

Childs Walker, reporter: If you walk right up to the line of unraveling completely but end up beating a lousy opponent, is that a good day? Through three quarters, the Ravens played as badly as they have all season. Joe Flacco threw two of the ugliest interceptions of his career. Justin Forsett broke his arm. The Ravens nearly accumulated more penalty yards than the Rams did total yards. Fans streamed out of the upper deck as the fourth quarter began. And then the Ravens came back and won. Give the game balls to Brandon Williams on defense and Crockett Gillmore on offense. It's no longer possible to describe how messy and confounding this team is.

Ron Fritz, sports editor: Did it really matter who won? This game was excruciating to watch between the penalties, turnovers and missed field goals. Are there really six more games left in the season?
