Positive: Patrick Queen and Roquan Smith, defensive linchpins

Queen and Smith, Smith and Queen. It's sad that the Ravens will need to move on from one of these two (it's Queen, just in case) next season as it will probably make little sense to pay hefty sums to two off-ball linebackers, but it's incredible to watch them together on a football field these days, so enjoy it while it lasts.

Queen and Smith finished with 12 tackles each, the former getting seven solo and the latter four. Smith also shared a sack with Jadeveon Clowney, who also excelled on the edge bringing the heat to the pocket of the Colts.

While it is true that Zack Moss burned Queen in a 17-yard touchdown pass-play, the ILB was still insane through the day. That said, he acknowledged his error after the game, which earned him even more kudos.

"I gave up a touchdown. If I don’t give up that touchdown, we win," said Queen. "So, it starts with us. It starts with me and ‘Ro’ [Roquan Smith] in the middle, taking over."
