Justin Forsett reaches 1,000-yard barrier for the first time in his career

Forsett would have taken the win, but 1,000 yards is a nice milestone for the journeyman running back.

Justin Forsett would have preferred a win when reaching 1,000 yards for the first time in his career.

On one hand, this is a season to remember for the 29-year-old running back. On the other hand, losing — especially the way the Ravens did on Sunday — is not going to sit well with anyone on this team for the coming week.

"It's bittersweet," Forsett said after the game. "It's a great accomplishment for us and the team, but we want to come out of here with a win, and we didn't get that done today."

It wasn't Forsett's fault the Ravens didn't get a victory. Forsett carried the ball 24 times for 106 yards in San Diego's 34-33 win over Baltimore, giving him 1,009 for the season. The Ravens were let down by a defensive secondary that did next to nothing against San Diego's receiving corps.

But while the Ravens are disappointed in the outcome of the game, Forsett has accomplished something many never thought he'd attain when he signed with the organization this offseason. That's something to be proud of, even if the immediate aftermath of the loss still stings.
