GAME PLAN: Following a sluggish start in which they fell behind 10-0 in the first quarter, the Ravens outscored the Dolphins, 28-3, over the final three quarters. Gary Kubiak maintained his patience with a slow-starting running game that eventually wore down the Dolphins for 183 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 31 carries. Quarterback Joe Flacco orchestrated a controlled passing game, completing passes to nine different receivers through a series of timing routes, out patterns, slants and crossing routes. The Ravens got veteran wide receiver Steve Smith involved early, which seems to energize him and keep him happy. He was targeted a game-high 11 times Sunday. Since wide receiver Torrey Smith was dealing with a sprained right knee and the Ravens didn't want him to further aggravate it after it flared up during warmups, he wasn't thrown to and was just used as a decoy. Dean Pees stuck with what's working, having outside linebackers Elvis Dumervil and Terrell Suggs pinch off the edge to harass quarterback Ryan Tannehill. He was sacked six times and hit nine times. Pees continues to use a three-safety alignment, deploying strong safety Matt Elam where he's more comfortable, close to the line of scrimmage.
