The running game was one of the few positives for the Ravens in this game. Bernard Pierce was a late scratch, which led to rookie Lorenzo Taliaferro receiving more snaps. He took advantage of the opportunity, and scored two touchdowns on the day.

Justin Forsett also performed pretty well in this game. He came into this weeks game holding the second-best yards per carry average in the NFL, and he rushed for 68 yards on 17 carries (four yards per rush).

Joe Flacco also recorded some rushing stats in this game, 12 yards on two carries to be exact.
