It seems like every week I start off the linebacker section with C.J. Mosley. Today is no exception. The talented rookie led the team in tackles once again with eight. When he slows down, I’ll let you know, but let me warn you; that day might never come.

Veteran Daryl Smith was second on the team in tackles with seven and recorded his first sack of the season. The team as a whole accumulated five sacks, the most in a single game this season for the Ravens.

The star pass-rushers, Elvis Dumervil and Terrell Suggs, both recorded sacks for the second straight game. Dumervil recorded 1.5 sacks and Suggs took Mike Glennon down one time. Suggs has been good, but Dumervil has been even better through the first six games of this season.
