Through three weeks, here is a look at some of the Ravens' top producers:

WR Torrey Smith: Smith has looked the part of a No. 1 receiver through three weeks. He had 92 yards on five catches in a 30-9 win over Houston this past Sunday. That was no easy task as he drew Texans corner Jonathan Joseph for most of the game. Smith has added many more routes to his skill set this offseason and has been steady through the early portion of the season, catching 16 passes for 269 yards.

ILB Daryl Smith: For all the controversy surrounding the Ravens trading Anquan Boldin to the 49ers this offseason, the organization deserves a lot of credit for bringing Smith to the clubhouse. Down 6-3 late in the first half against Houston, Smith picked off a Matt Schaub pass and ran 37 yards the other way for a touchdown. For the year, Smith has 25 total tackles with 1.5 sacks. He also has five pass deflections. He's been the biggest acquisition for Baltimore thus far.

S James Ihedigbo: Ihedigbo has been a crucial part to the secondary's success over the last two weeks, relaying the calls to the rest of the defensive backs. He had a breakout game against Houston with nine tackles (two for loss). His three pass deflections for the season are second behind Smith's.

OLB Terrell Suggs: Suggs already has three sacks in three games and looks much quicker and faster off the snap than he did a year ago, when he was coming off an Achilles tear. Having Elvis Dumervil on the other side has helped too, freeing up the attention normally required to a player like Suggs. He's been disruptive with the pass rush and a big reason why teams not named the Denver Broncos have been held out of the end zone.

QB Joe Flacco: Hear me out on this. He's had no running game. He's had no other receiver step up as a downfield threat in Jacoby Jones' absence. Yet over the past two games, Flacco has played efficiently and hasn't turned the ball. He's managed the game well and has a 60.5 completion percentage. Flacco's playing better than the statistics (744 yards, three touchdowns) indicate as he's kept mistakes at a minimum.
