If week 12’s epic win over the Saints had Ravens fans swooning like a preteen girl at a One Direction concert, week 13’s heartbreaking loss to the Chargers must have them singing an old school country Taylor Swift song.  How could they lose a game that they seemed to be controlling for the majority of four quarters?

The recipe for the Ravens’ first home loss in the month of November since 2009 was a little bit of poor play calling mixed with an overmatched secondary and a dash of penalties.  It all added up to a win for the Chargers at M&T Bank Stadium, a feat that no west coast team had ever accomplished before.

There were, of course, some great performances to go along with the horribly bad ones.  Justin Forsett continued his campaign as the team’s offensive MVP, while Joe Flacco had an underrated performance.  Will Hill continued to play well, far better than his counterparts in what may be the NFL’s worst secondary.

As we do each week, we like to highlight the players who are contributing to the team’s successes, and point out those that are actually hurting the team, in our weekly segment devoted to the Baltimore Ravens highest and lowest rated players based on grades from the stats gurus at Pro Football Focus.
