Which Ravens helped themselves, which didn't against the Cowboys

The fight for jobs continued against the Cowboys. Let's see who helped themselves on Saturday.

Who Helped Themselves

Deonte Thompson

Thompson made a case for him to get a job on special teams returning two kickoffs for a combined 158 yards and one touchdown. However, he only registered two offensive snaps, so he might not have done enough.

Lorenzo Taliaferro

Taliaferro followed his game against the 49ers by having another good one against the Cowboys, rushing for 59 yards and a touchdown off of 16 carries. His YPC was unimpressive and he didn't get any long runs, but he consistently got gains of three and four yards.

Kyle Juszczyk

Juszczyk was a reliable option for Joe Flacco in the short passing game and as a safety valve. He also performed well as a lead blocker on Taliaferro's touchdown run.

Bernard Pierce

Pierce is getting rid of concerns of the running game during Ray Rices suspension rushing seven times for 55 yards.

Brynden Trawick

Trawick intercepted Brandon Weeden and almost had a second interception if he didn't drop it. However, he whiffed on a tackle to allow a Cowboys touchdown.

John Urschel

Urschel surpassed Ryan Jensen and moved up to the third team. He also had a key block during Taliaferro's touchdown.

Brandon Williams

Williams drew a hold from Zach Martin and blew past Travis Frederick to set up a tackle for loss.

Pernell McPhee

McPhee was the defensive MVP of the game and certainly looks to be a defensive stud this year.

Tyrod Taylor

Taylor ran less and was effective passing the ball. He might just keep his job,especially given Wennings' performance.

Who didn't help themselves

Omar Brown

Brown was beaten for a Cowboys touchdown and extended a Cowboys drive by getting an unnecessary roughness penalty on third down.

Justin Forsett

Forsett fumbled for the second time in two games against the Cowboys and once again was unimpressive as a rusher.

Jah Reid

Reid was penalized twice for 25 yards. He certainly hasn't cleaned up that aspect of his game.

Keith Wenning

Wenning was too slow with getting the ball out and the result was two sacks,one resulting in a lost fumble.

Kamar Aiken and Jeremy Butler

After having a good game against the 49ers, the two were virtually invisible against the Cowboys, catching one pass for 10 yards.
