Ravens defense facing Drew Brees and the Saints at M&T Bank Stadium

Sitting in a chilly section 552 of M&T Bank Stadium, bundled up in multiple layers, my heart was warmed to see the Baltimore Ravens get back to running the ball to set up the pass and playing solid defense.

The result was a raucous celebration in the stands as the Ravens handed the New Orleans Saints a 30 – 24 defeat.

Ray Rice was utilized once again as a weapon instead of just a running back. Terrell Suggs and Jarret Johnson made it a tough day for Drew Brees and his ball carriers. The special teams made smart plays and Sam Koch continued being a pinpoint punter.
