"I thought our players played really well. I could name 46 guys," Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said after Baltimore's 16-6 victory vs. San Francisco on Thursday. Indeed, the quality and depth of the Ravens' roster stood out on Thanksgiving night. Their very best defensive players were outstanding. OLB Terrell Suggs and DT Haloti Ngata combined for five of Baltimore's nine sacks. Also, DE Cory Redding, not regarded as one of the club's top pass rushers, had 2½ sacks, proof of the wide variety of pass-pressure generators Baltimore boasts. At middle linebacker, Albert McClellan stepped in to make his first career start in place of legendary Ray Lewis and fared well enough, notching four tackles. The offense got some tough yards against a standout San Francisco defense, with QB Joe Flacco sharp on the game's pivotal drive, which ended in a third-down TD pass to reserve TE Dennis Pitta, who had two third-down catches on the 16-play, 76-yard march. Veteran WR Lee Evans, now a backup after an ankle injury and the emergence of Torrey Smith, also made a big third-down conversion on the drive, fighting for a first down after being short of the marker initially.
