Who would’ve thought that would happen?"

Justin Forsett Dedicates Game To His Ailing Grandmother

"Having grown up in nearby Lakeland, Fla., Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers represented a homecoming for Ravens veteran running back Justin Forsett.The 48-17 victory had special meaning for Forsett, who rushed for a season-high 111 yards on 14 carries, including a 52-yard run in the first quarter to set up the Ravens’ first touchdown.Forsett said he dedicated the game to his grandmother, Louise Williams, who is battling Alzheimer’s disease.“I had a lot of family members here, so it was good to be able to put on a show,” Forsett said. “I was able to get off the plane and go home and visit my grandma. She’s diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, and I wanted to dedicate this game to her. I’m keeping her in my mind and in my heart.”“I was getting a little emotional just thinking about her before the game, but I just wanted to keep my composure. I just wanted to make her proud because I knew she was watching.”"

Joe Flacco Can’t Remember Raven’s Offense Playing Better Than They Are Now

"Baltimore is known for defense.But not this year – not under the Joe Flacco-Gary Kubiak partnership.With these two men leading an offensive unit with a solid run game, stout offensive line and plenty of weapons, the Ravens are ranked eighth-best in the NFL. And that ranking only accounts for yards per game. If you ask Pro Football Focus (PFF), which takes into account the enitire offense, down to the blocking and penalties, the Ravens are rated No. 2 out of all 32 teams.“I think as an offense, we’re playing about as well as I can remember,” Flacco told ESPN Radio’s “Mike and Mike” Monday."

Replacing the injured Asa Jackson, Franks gave up 93 yards receiving on five catches (average of 15.5 yards). Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon’s passer rating was 118.8 when throwing at Franks."
