I won’t give anything away, but we might just have another F right here. Justin Forsett did not help out the cause, but the line gave him absolutely no room to run. The final rushing stats for Baltimore go as follows: 33 yards on 16 carries. Not only is that an average of 2.1 yards per rush, but their longest run of the day was just 12 yards. Their second-longest was six.

In addition to that, Joe Flacco was being pressured as soon as he stepped back into the pocket on several occasions. He only got sacked twice, but he got hit ten times, and was forced to make inadvisable throws throughout this game.

After displaying such a terrific season, it would be a shame to see this line end off on such a bad note. As I say every other week when a group has a bad performance (because I am a positive guy), let’s just hope that they can put it behind them and get ready for Week 17.

Grade: F
