Ravens 35, Steelers 7
In a highly anticipated opening day matchup, the Ravens went to battle against their bitter rival, the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Ravens 37, Rams 7
In what turned out to be an up-and-down start to the season, the Ravens notched their second win with a blowout of the Rams. The 533 yards of offense that the Ravens racked up set a franchise record for the most yards in a game since the 1996 relocation.
Ravens 34, Jets 17
The Ravens defense stepped up in this matchup with the Jets. Three different players scored defensive touchdowns in this one. It was a rough day for the Jets as they were shut out in the second half and the Ravens cruised.

Kicker Billy Cundiff was the MVP of this game, winning the game with a last-second field goal.

Ravens 23, Steelers 20
The second matchup of the season between these rivals was more competitive, but yielded the same result — a Ravens win.

But a 26-yard touchdown pass from Flacco to receiver Torrey Smith with under two minutes to go sealed the win.
Seahawks 22, Ravens 17
The Ravens started slow against the Seahawks and that seems to have been their undoing. Seattle jumped out to a 10-0 lead in the first quarter and managed to do just enough to hold on for a win.

In an important division game, the Ravens took care of business and defeated the Bengals. Joe Flacco turned in a good performance, throwing for 270 yards and two touchdowns.
Ravens 16, 49ers 6
Thanksgiving Day brought us more than loads of turkey. We were also treated to the "Harbaugh Bowl." Although the 49ers (coached by John Harbaugh’s younger brother Jim) were running amok through the league with a 9-1 record, the Ravens brought them back down to earth with their patented brand of smashmouth football. San Francisco’s quarterback Alex Smith was hounded by the Ravens D and Baltimore emerged with a 16-6 win.
Ravens 24, Browns 10
The expectations were high against struggling Cleveland and although the Ravens emerged with the win, it wasn’t very impressive. Most importantly, the win was enough to keep Baltimore where they wanted to be in the playoff hunt.
Ravens 24, Colts 10
Week 14 brought another 24-10 win, this time against the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts' struggles this season are well-documented and the Ravens really didn’t have much trouble putting them away.
