Ravens: Cheers and jeers for week 6’s loss to the 49ers

2 of 7

Oct 18, 2015; Santa Clara, CA, USA; San Francisco 49ers cornerback Tramaine Brock (26) prevents the pass intended for Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith (89) during the second quarter at Levi

Cheers: Steve Smith Sr.

7 receptions on 10 targets for 137 yards, 1 touchdown

Nobody truly expected Steve Smith to play for a couple of weeks after suffering a pair of micro fractures in his back two weeks ago.  After missing just one week, Smitty returned to the field and amazingly looked no worse for wear in a gutsy, standout performance.

Smith racked up catch after catch, including a clutch grab on the Ravens final drive that put them in position to win the game.  Unfortunately, he’s the only viable receiver on this roster right now, which is a nightmare for the Ravens.

Next: Marlon Brown
