Though it wasn’t a great performance by the offensive line, it was much better than last week’s debacle in Houston.

James Hurst participated in this game for the injured Ricky Wagner and did a pretty good job. Left tackle Eugene Monroe missed this game and he will be a vital piece for the offensive line heading into the playoffs.

The Baltimore running game totaled 129 yards on 28 carries in this game. Although those numbers look pretty good, they are also misleading. The Ravens could not find room to run in the first half, and the only reason for those totals are because Justin Forsett broke off two runs of 25 yards or more.

Grade: C+
