Ravens get it done
The Ravens scored a solid victory, but the best part was getting it done by 3:50 so that they wouldn't infringe on the Redskins' network broadcast. I'm sure John Harbaugh and Cam Cameron added extra running plays to burn some clock out of deference to the 'Skins.
This was as big a win as everyone was saying it needed to be. The Ravens now are in a position to play a soft team at home next week and -- if they can match today's intensity and execution -- move back above .500 before that string of three straight road games.
Joe Flacco bounced back nicely from last week's indignity against the Colts, but it's a little bit difficult to gauge his development, since the Dolphins are not a marquee team. It's just nice to see him come back and look like he was in control of himself and the offense. Good day all around.
