Defense: A

We could point to the lack of turnovers as a negative, but it’s really a moot point.  We could also point out that nobody outside of John Simon was getting pressure on the Saint’s quarterbacks.  But what does it really matter when you hold the opposing team to stats like these?

More from Ravens News

3rd down efficiency: 0-7
4th down efficiency: 0-1
Rushing: 12 attempts for 42 yards (3.5 average)

With numbers like those, you can probably guess the outcome of the game even if you didn’t already know.  And speaking of John Simon, he had an OK game.  3 solo tackles, 1 sack, 2 tackles for loss, and 4 quarterback hits.  So yea, there was that too.
