The Ravens did not feature much of a rushing game in the first half. In the second half however, that all changed. After rushing the ball only seven times in the first half, the Ravens ran it 19 times in the second.

Justin Forsett did not have his best game. In fact, it was undoubtedly his worst performance of the season. He received five carries in the first half and 11 in the second half, rushing the ball for only 48 yards total. That’s a yard-per-carry average of 3.0. This is not good coming from the guy that leads the NFL in yards-per-carry this season. Hopefully this was just a fluke and Forsett can put this one behind him.

Much like last week, Bernard Pierce did not do much, but he compiled one big run that made his stats look pretty good. He got six carries for 37 yards, including a game-icing 28 yard run in the fourth quarter.

Grade: D
