Ravens CB Jimmy Smith Diagnosed with Achilles Injury, Ruled Out vs. Lions

The win puts the Ravens at 7-5 and gives them their first three game winning streak of the season.

Stafford told reporters he believed his injury was caused by someone stepping on his hand, but he wasn't completely sure.

After slants, screens and other short and intermediate passes made up most of the offense for the Ravens early, Flacco uncorked a 66-yard bomb to receiver Mike Wallace in the second quarter for the Ravens' longest play from scrimmage this season.

The Baltimore Ravens cruised past the Detroit Lions today in Baltimore by a final score of 44-20.

On the next play, Flacco hit tight end Ben Watson for a 1-yard touchdown pass.

No one in the NFL is going to accuse the Detroit Lions of having the best defense in the league, so you can't really blame them for trying to add a few new wrinkles to their game plan. "A game like this can do a lot for our confidence".

Prior to his injury, Stafford completed 24 of 29 passes for 292 yards, a touchdown, and an interception.

Matthew Stafford left the game in the 4th quarter of Sunday's loss to the Ravens and headed to the locker room with his right hand wrapped up.

"The only thing we're focused on is the next one, and see if we can string together some good football, which we haven't been able to do", Caldwell said. "We were down 20-0 at the end of the half and fought tooth and nail to get back into this game". Ravens WR Breshad Perriman, the team's first-round pick in 2015, was a healthy scratch for the second time in three weeks. It was his first miss from inside 50 yards this season. Stafford connected with Marvin Jones on a 42-yard jump ball over Humphrey, setting up a Theo Riddick rushing touchdown on the next play.
