The Ravens gave us a lot to be thankful for on Thanksgiving. Baltimore faced a very tough opponent and dominated all over the field. The pass rush, led by Terrell Suggs with three sacks, was relentless. Paul Kruger and Pernell McPhee were everywhere and the secondary played mistake free. This defense showed they are ready for the post-Ray Lewis era.
Joe Flacco had a great game. He did just enough to stay ahead of Alex Smith and the 49ers all night. Flacco made the big throws when he need to and moved the ball well against one of the leagues toughest defenses. Joe distributed the ball evenly and used all of his weapons.
John Harbaugh and Cam Cameron stayed grounded (literally) with their offensive attack. With the defense registering nine sacks they were blessed with some pretty good field position throughout the game. Cam had some questionable play calls in key moments again (QB draw on 3rd and goal) but the offense did what was necessary to win the game.
John Harbaugh gets to one-up" little brother in round one and Baltimore could not be happier. Happy Thanksgiving!
