NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Minnesota Vikings Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

MVP: Justin Tucker

Although the offense was horrid, Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker showed up once again. It’s fair to say that Tucker is Baltimore’s top offensive threat, after making three field goals. He finished the day 3 for 3, including a 57-yard field goal. Tucker also went 1 for 1 on extra point attempts.

Winners:

Wait a second, there were actually winners for the Ravens? Yes. One on offense and another on defense.

Michael Campanaro — With Mike Wallace, Breshad Perriman and Jeremy Maclin out for the game, Campanaro made a few nice plays on offense. He had a 19-yard run on a jet sweep. Although, he got a little banged up on one play, he fought through the pain and showed some grit.

Jaylen Hill — Hill looked like he had played all season. The rookie corner played well in the slot and proved why Baltimore kept him on the team as an undrafted free agent.

Losers:

Ravens run-defense — They allowed 169 yards rushing. Yikes.

Joe Flacco — He had little to no time to throw and was roughed up the majority of the game by Everson Griffen. He luckily had his first touchdown pass in 137 attempts in garbage time to Chris Moore.

Running game — 64 yards on 20 attempts. Baltimore’s usually sturdy running game wasn’t so hot on Sunday.

Receiving corps — With Perriman, Wallace and Maclin out, Baltimore was left with Griff Whalen, Campanaro and Moore.

Marty Mornhinweg’s play-calling — Inexplicably, Mornhinweg didn’t call deep passing plays until the end of the game. It was a poor game to say the least and his days have to be numbered at this point.
