The Ravens clearly missed their fearless leader. Ray Lewis didn't suit up for the first time in three years. Flacco continued his strong play with 270 yards and 2 TDs. John Harbaugh finally came to his senses and gave Ray Rice the damn ball. The Ravens RB answered the call with 104 yards and 2 TDs; when he gets carries, good things happen. The Ravens are sitting pretty atop the AFC North after this nail-biter. It's not going to get any easier when they face their coach's brother and his Niners on Thanksgiving. —Angel Diaz
