Ravens hit double-digit wins; top Colts 24-10

You can’t find too many faults with the Ravens after today’s 24-10 romp over the Colts.

The offense was balanced and efficient, with Joe Flacco throwing for 227 yards and two touchdowns and Ray Rice topping the 100-yard rushing mark for the second straight game.

The defense was absolutely dominant, allowing just 167 total yards, much of it in junk time. Terrell Suggs had three sacks and three forced fumbles, setting a record for the most forced fumbles in a game in franchise history.

The special teams were solid, with kicker Billy Cundiff battling through a left calf injury and bouncing back from a rough week, and Lardarius Webb giving the Ravens a spark in the punt return game.

It was an all-around manhandling, with the Ravens looking every bit like a 10-3 team, and the Colts looking every bit like a winless squad that now stands at 0-13.

It was also a day of milestones at M&T Bank Stadium, as a number of players set personal records at various points throughout this one.

Offensively, Flacco eclipsed 3,000 yards passing on the season for the third straight year, Rice topped 1,000 rushing yards on the season and 4,000 for his career, and wide receiver Lee Evans topped 6,000 receiving yards for his career, while Suggs set a career high with 13 sacks on the season.

Are the Ravens really that good? Are the Colts really that bad?

Tough to tell. Regardless, this one was never close, and the Ravens will at worst remain tied for the best record in the AFC with three games to go.

Back with more from the locker room in a bit.
