Baltimore Ravens Strategy and Personnel 2008-12-09
PLAYER NOTES


--RB Willis McGahee suffered a shoulder stinger, but he could be ready to play Sunday against the Steelers. Ravens coach John Harbaugh said McGahee experienced some "tingling" but is expected to be fine.

--RB Ray Rice sustained an ankle injury but should be available Sunday against the Steelers. Ravens coach John Harbaugh indicated that Rice "looks OK."

--RB Le'Ron McClain has scored a team-best seven rushing touchdowns, including two in his past three games.

--WR Derrick Mason has scored touchdowns in consecutive games for just the second time in his four-year Ravens career.

--FS Ed Reed has four interceptions in three games after going eight games without a pick.

REPORT CARD VS. REDSKINS

PASSING OFFENSE: B -- Joe Flacco wasn't accurate, completing 10 of 21 passes. But he hit on the long passes, averaging 13.4 yards per completion. Tight end Todd Heap was effective on outside routes and had a couple of opportunities for long passes one-on- one with the linebackers. Derrick Mason's double move on Carlos Rogers for a touchdown shows why he is one of the best route runners in the league.

RUSHING OFFENSE: B -- Le'Ron McClain remains the most dependable option, leading the Ravens with 61 yards rushing and one touchdown. Willis McGahee continues to struggle. He had 32 yards rushing and a fumble. Ray Rice had the biggest run of the game, gaining 21 yards on a third-down draw.

PASS DEFENSE: A -- Safety Ed Reed returned one fumble for a touchdown and picked off two passes. The Redskins tried to pick on cornerback Fabian Washington, but he helped shut down the Redskins' speedy receivers. Terrell Suggs had two quarterback hits. Safety Jim Leonhard is always around the ball.

RUSH DEFENSE: A -- The Ravens shut down Clinton Portis, who had 32 yards on 11 carries, a 2.9-yard average. His longest run was 11 yards. Linebacker Ray Lewis had 13 tackles, including three behind the line of scrimmage.

SPECIAL TEAMS: B -- Sam Koch placed three of six punts inside the 20-yard line. Matt Stover converted his only field-goal attempt, a 32-yarder. The Ravens are getting little help from their return game.

COACHING: A -- Offensive coordinator Cam Cameron made the call of the year, going with a pass to tight end Todd Heap on a fourth-and-one in the third quarter. Cameron also converted a third-and-10 with a draw play. Defensive coordinator Rex Ryan flooded areas with different blitzes, which allowed the Ravens to two sacks and seven quarterback hits.
