For the first time this season, Steve Smith Sr. was a not much of a factor. He did catch five passes, but only for 34 yards, and he coughed up a big fumble on the Ravens’ first offensive play of the game that immediately put the confidence on the side of Indianapolis.

Torrey Smith caught three passes for 38 yards on eight targets. He dropped a huge pass in the fourth quarter on the Ravens’ second-last offensive play of the game that would have given them a first down. He and Flacco continue to appear to not be on the same page. Let’s just hope that Torrey is able to turn the corner.

One player that did have a big day in the receiving game was tight end Owen Daniels. In his second game as the starting tight end, Daniels caught five passes for 80 yards and made a couple of big third-down conversions. He looks like an older version of Dennis Pitta and that is great news for Ravens fans.

Grade: C-
