I don’t usually point out individuals when it comes to the offensive line category, but let me just give a shout-out to Rick Wagner. If anyone on that offensive line was going to fail, it would most likely have been him. The odds were against him, but he has come through this season. It was a rough start to this game for Wagner, but he rebounded and came up huge just like he has throughout this season.

Now that we’re done with the emotional stuff, let’s get into the numbers. The Ravens’ rushing game as a group carried the ball 31 times for a very impressive 183 yards (5.9 yards-per-carry). Once offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak decided to run the ball a little more in the second half, the O-line found room for these running backs to maneuver.

Joe Flacco only got sacked once and threw the ball with ease, so it was an all-around great performance displayed by the line.

Grade: A+
