It’s also fair to say that this game was a must win for the Ravens, who keep pace with the rest of the division by retaining second place, one half game behind the Cincinnati Bengals.  Had they lost, the Ravens would have dropped all the way to last place in dramatic fashion.

There were several standout performances Monday night, including a career game by Justin Forsett and a breakout performance by Will Hill.  But football is a team sport, of course, so that means there are a lot of moving components here.  And that includes the players that didn’t pull their weight as well.
