For only the second time this season, a player other then C.J. Mosley led the Ravens in tackles. That player was veteran Daryl Smith, who accumulated a season-high 13 tackles on the day, seven more than Mosley.

Mosley still maintained a pretty impressive outing, recording six tackles of his own along with one tackle for a loss. The Ravens have had two spectacular one-two punches at the linebacker position this season: Smith and Mosley, and Elvis Dumervil and Terrell Suggs.

Both Dumervil and Suggs tallied sacks on the day. While Suggs only took Matt Ryan down to the turf once, Dumervil did it twice. He is tied for second in the league with seven sacks, only one behind the league-leading Von Miller.

Grade: A+
