Offense: C+

We’re not exactly sure what happened in the fourth quarter.  Perhaps the Ravens finally got the memo that the Chargers were indeed going to lose.  Maybe all the tee times at the local golf course were booked, so they figured “why not play another week?” Whatever the case, Torrey Smith came out of nowhere and resurrected an offense that seemed to give up the last few weeks.

Justin Forsett got his mojo back against the NFL’s worst run defense as well, racking up 117 yards on 17 carries (7.0 avg).  Joe Flacco had a solid game, going 22 of 36 for 312 yards and 2 touchdowns with 0 interceptions.  He was sacked only once, despite both Ravens starting tackles sitting this one out with injury.

One can only hope they carry this 4th quarter momentum into the postseason.
