Positive: Brandon Stephens keeping the secondary together

Yes, he was caught in a bunch of plays in which he allowed receptions. Yes, we know Stephens struggles at man coverage when it comes to ball skills. Also yes: Stephens is a tackling machine and won't allow opposing receivers to do a lot once they got the ball.

Stephens started on the outside corner with Kyle Hamilton deployed in the slot, and finished with the second-most total tackles among players clad in Ravens threads with 11, only behind the two inside linebackers.

The defensive back, who can act as a hybrid corner-safety, completed eight tackles by himself, deflected a couple of passes, and stepped up to the plate once again keeping the Colts at bay and limiting their scoring opportunities for large spells.

The blemish in his outing is the play in which he (along with Jeremiah Moon) failed to capture a fumble before halftime that most probably would have helped Baltimore score at least three more points before the break. Can't have it all.
