Special Teams: A+

Many times people say that special teams can win the game.  In this case, they did – literally.  Justin Tucker continued his dominant play at the kicker position, making all five of his field goal attempts to lead the Ravens to victory, with his longest kick this evening going for 45 yards.

Sam Koch only had one opportunity to punt, sending it 32 yards.

Michael Campanaro handled all the Raven’s punt and kickoff returns, and was fast and shifty while racking up some good averages.  He had three kickoff returns for 78 yards (26.0 average) and 2 punt returns for 20 yards (10.0 average).

The only thing that might have made it better would have been a touchdown or two, but who are we to nitpick?
