The D-line did a pretty good job of holding this Saints running game in check. Their running backs totaled just 46 yards on 16 carries, but of course the Saints looked pretty one-dimensional the entire game.

It just looked like they were scared to run on the Ravens defense. Not until the second half did Mark Ingram start to play any sort of role in this game.

Haloti Ngata, Chris Canty, and Brandon Williams are building a great reputation for this group, and as we saw with the Saints last night, teams are getting more and more scared of messing with them.

Grade: A-
