Sack Party
...with Consequences (Many Injured)

PATRIOTS 23 - Ravens 13

Baltimore, MD - The Patriots were able to come out strong and hold the lead through the game to win, but it came at a loss. Defensive Captain Jerod Mayo will now be sidelined for 8 weeks due to a Collarbone injury. This was not the only casuality, here's the list of 3 others:

Julian Edelman
Dont'a Hightower
Brandon Lloyd

All three of them came out of the game early and are listed as questionable for next week. When coach Gerard was asked what he thought on the injuries, he said, "Other than Jerod (Mayo), we are looking good for next week. Julian, Dont'a, and Brandon will all stay off their feet for the next few days to start their recovery to be ready for next week."

Patriots took an early lead due to a fumble on the first snap of the game by Ray Rice. The fumble was picked up by Steve Gregory, who also made a huge interception in the final 2 minutes in the endzone. Patriots were able to get a couple first downs and close it out afterwards for the victory.

Big props go out to the Patriots defensive front. They were able to keep the explosive Ray Rice under 50 yards. That feat is a hard one to do. Along with shutting down the game's top running back, they also picked up 4 sacks on Joe Flacco. Two of them came from the hands of newly positioned Defensive End Rob Ninkovich. When asked about his transition to defensive end, he had this to say, "Defense end is a lot like outside linebacker, you're making sure nothing get's outside of you and that you keep the game on the inside. Now I don't have to go out and defend many passes or cover a tight end as much, which is a plus but I have to handle that right tackle. Offensive right tackles are usually big because that's where the run plays go and they have to make holes."

This win propels the Patriots to 2-1 on the year. On to the Bills we go!
