Ravens vs. Steelers Postgame: MVP, 3 Winners & 4 Losers

NFL: International Series-Baltimore Ravens at Jacksonville Jaguars Steve Flynn-USA TODAY Sports

MVP — Alex Collins

The Ravens needed somebody to step up. After a terrible first half of football, including an Alex Collins fumble, the tailback ran his way out of the doghouse. Collins hit a fifty-yard run which sprung about a Raven touchdown. A stellar game for the back as he finishes with nine carries for 82 yards, fifty of them on a single run.

Winners:

Mike Wallace — Finally, the wide receiver found some openings. It has taken four games, but he notched six catches for 55 yards and a sweet touchdown.

Ben Watson — Multiple catches today where Ben was hit and in tight coverage, yet he still secured big time receptions. A great effort by the tight end to produce for the offense.

Patrick Onwausor ‘Peanut’ — An booming hit on Antonio Brown, a catch-from-behind tackle on Le’Veon Bell, Peanut did it all today. He’s clearly ahead of Kamalei Correa at this point.

Losers:

As always, I want to clarify this as players will have bad games. Being on this list doesn’t mean anything other than a bad game by the players mentioned.

Joe Flacco — Two interceptions were not what the team needed today in order to succeed. Now, Flacco sits at 10 straight games with an interception.

Breshad Perriman — Dropping a wide-open touchdown will get you on this end of the list real quick. The Ravens needed points and this was a big difference on the scoreboard.

Run defense — Over 175 yards surrendered on the ground as Bell had his way with the defensive front. Brandon Williams is clearly missed, alongside Brent Urban.

Offensive Line — Joe Flacco didn’t play well, but the O-line did not help. The interior is gone and there’s 12 more games left to play.
