New, comments
NFL: Detroit Lions at Baltimore Ravens Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Forty-four total points, with 37 points produced by the offense; for the first time in a long time, the Ravens tied together a near-perfect game. Players saw many personal highs, including franchise quarterback, Joe Flacco.

Ravens offensive stats:

QB Joe Flacco had by far his best game of the season, grading at 86.8. He finally found some success throwing deep, completing two of four passes, traveling 20+ yards for 89 yards.

WR Mike Wallace served as a reliable receiver for Flacco, catching five of eight targets thrown his way for 116 yards, and grading strongly at 80.3.

HB Alex Collins finished the game with a 89.1 grade, the highest on the offense this afternoon. He forced a season high five missed tackles, averaging 4.4 yards after contact per attempt.

The Ravens offensive line as a whole performed strongly, allowing a combined three pressures between them. Their pass blocking efficiency mark of 93.8 tied with their Week 2 performance at Oakland as the best of the season so far.

With a dropped pass and 32 yards on three receptions, Chris Moore struggled to make an impact. He finished the game as the lowest graded player at 40.8.​​

Ravens defensive stats:

OLB Terrell Suggs has shown little sign of slowing down this season, and today was no different. He recorded one sack, four hurries and four defensive stops. His 49 total pressures lead all Ravens defenders this season.

With star CB Jimmy Smith leaving the game injured, CB Maurice Canady played a season-high 36 snaps. While allowing all three passes thrown his way to be completed, he gave up just 17 yards in total, all coming against Golden Tate.

DT Michael Pierce gave up very little on the ground, making four defensive stops against the run. On the season he has recorded a stop on 12.7% of his run snaps, currently ranking him fifth among defensive tackles.

Despite intercepting Matt Stafford late in the fourth quarter, CB Marlon Humphrey had the worst performance of his rookie season so far. He allowed five catches for 116 yards, including a season high 46 yard completion from Marvin Jones.
