The team dropped passes, missed tackles and blew coverage assignments.Baltimore attempted just nine running plays and were 3-of-16 on third down. They also had problems managing the clock as they ended the first half with being down 13-points at halftime.
Baltimore had just first five downs with a total of 121 yards when the first half ended. Eight of the first 11 drives ended in either a three-and-out or a turnover.

Joe Flacco finished the game 25 of 50 for 347 yards and two touchdowns, including a 10-yard touchdown score to rookie Marlon Brown that gave the Ravens a lead in the second quarter, along with a 26-yard pass to Torrey Smith to put the Ravens within 20-14.
The effort was close, but to no avail with their next drive ended with a pass that was supposed to go to Dallas Clark, but instead becoming a a game closing interception by Kiko Alonso with less than a minute to go in the football game.
"We don't point fingers around here, but the last person I'm worried about is Joe Flacco," said Ravens running back Ray Rice, who made his return after his hip flexor injury. Rice only gained just 17 yards on five carries.
