All the grades look fine and dandy so far, but the defense is the reason that the Ravens lost this game, and for once, it was not solely the secondary’s fault.

The Chargers’ rushing game did not get much going on this stingy Ravens defensive line, but pressure being applied to quarterback Philip Rivers was non-existent in the second half.

Although the Ravens sacked Rivers twice, they did not apply pressure upon him on third down, leading to several big third-down conversions executed by San Diego.

Grade: B-
