The Ravens started off ugly but they finished strong. Big goal line stands by the defense and a perfect redzone offense pushed this team to a 2-1 record.

MVP: Joe Flacco

Another strong game by the franchise quarterback. By the games end, Joe threw for 277 yards 25 completions. He notched one touchdown pass and added a great 3rd & 1 run for a clock-churning first down. Keep it up, Joe.

Stock up

Javorius Allen — A diving score and a hard run at the goal-line put two touchdowns on the board for his team. Great work by the Ravens running back.

Patrick Onwuasor — A great time to tally your first interception, Peanut. If only these refs weren’t making bad calls and throwing ticky-tack penalties, he’d have a defensive touchdown.

John Brown — Every week he’s made a play. It won’t stop now.

Mark Andrews — Big-time catches and chain-moving runs after the catch has this rookie making waves. He’s also been taking hurdle classes from Nick Boyle.

Justin Tucker — Hey refs, can you please call an illegal play illegal? No matter, Tucker completed two 52-yard kicks in the rain anyways.

Kenny Young — With Mosley out, he shined in his starting debut, racking up nine solo tackles and flying to the football.

Terrell Suggs — Another game, another place up on the all-time sack list leaderboard. He’s now tied for 15th.

Tim White — No fumbles on the punt put him in a positive light. Sign me up.

Za’Darius Smith — Another good game for the man in his contract year. Consistent pressure and a sack keep adding to his upcoming free agency.

Michael Crabtree — A solid seven catches for 61 yards helped keep the Ravens’ offense moving today.

Brent Urban — The big man collapsed multiple pockets. He was grinding down the interior Broncos offensive line while the rest of the crew cleaned up.

Tony Jefferson — A huge tackle for a loss and he was the defender on the 4th & 6 attempt by the Broncos. Great game for the safety.

Stock down

Brandon Carr — An ugly game for the Ravens cornerback allowing multiple catches for first downs. He couldn’t quite handle Demaryius Thomas or Emmanuel Sanders.

Special Teams blocking — A blocked punt was an ugly way to start the game. The field goal block isn’t on them, though.

Alex Lewis — Bad run blocking and ugly pass-blocking get him on the stock-down list. The Ravens running woes continue on the left side of the line.
