Ravens pummel Raiders 55-20

The Baltimore Ravens offense came out of hibernation yesterday and mounted the biggest offensive output ever in Ravens history.  The 55 points scored, set an all-time Ravens record as they whipped the Oakland Raiders in every facet of the game.  The 7-2 Ravens stayed a game ahead of the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC North and are set to face their arch-rivals this Sunday night in Pittsburgh.

Joe Flacco looked sharp and spread the ball around, as 8 Ravens players caught passes on the day.  The Ravens defense batted balls down all game long, and the special teams unit scored a 105 yard touchdown on a Jacoby Jones kickoff return.  All in all, there was little to complain about, as the Ravens looked very good against the Raiders.

Sunday, the Ravens will play against a very beat-up Steelers team that lost QB-Ben Roethlisberher and S-Ryan Clark last night.  The Steelers lost Roethlisberger in the 3rd quarter of their 16-13 overtime win against the Kansas City Chiefs.  Roethlisberger is said to have a “sprained shoulder” but the extent of the injury will not be known until an MRI is done.  The early reports are that Roethlisberger, Clark, and S-Troy Polamalu are listed as questionable to play Sunday night against Baltimore.
