Highest Rated Offensive Players: Marshal Yanda (8.9), Kelechi Osemele (8.4), Jeremy Zuttah (6.5), Ricky Wagner (6.2), Steve Smith (3.9)

Yanda takes over the top spot after a dominant performance against the Panthers. Osemele, on the other hand, drops a bit after losing a few battles in the run game to Panther’s defensive tackle Kawaan Short. This is the second consecutive week where the offensive line has held four out of the top five spots.

The Ravens have to be pleased with the contributions of trade addition Jeremy Zuttah and new starting right tackle Ricky Wagner. Both have been pleasant surprises that have contributed greatly to this offense’s performance, both in pass protection and run blocking.

Smith takes over the fifth spot this week from Justin Forsett, whose efficiency dipped a little in week four. Much of that can be blamed on the fact that the Ravens nursed a big lead most of the game. It should be noted that Joe Flacco has moved up to the sixth spot (3.1) on the heels of perhaps his best game as a pro.
