The Ravens started sacking Marcus Mariota on the opening drive, with eight different Ravens getting at least one sack. The Titans pinned the Ravens deep in their own territory, but 17 plays later Michael Crabtree caught a very impressive touchdown pass. The Ravens offense took up most of the first quarter with a drive that was as impressive as it gets.
- Onwuasor notched No. 4 in the second quarter.
Smith said the Ravens didn't know how many sacks they had until tying the team record of nine and were told they could break the record set November 24, 2011, against San Francisco.
With four minutes remaining, Mariota attempted to scoot up in the pocket and evade the Ravens' pass rush, but fourth-year edge defender Za'Darius Smith chased him down, then raised a fist in the air and posed as a few teammates swarmed him in celebration of Baltimore's 11th takedown. Alex Collins scored on TD runs of 13 and 2 yards. The Ravens couldn't have looked much better handing Tennessee its first shutout since November 28, 2010.
Flacco lined up as a wide receiver and even though the Titans were not going to get fooled into thinking that the quarterback will be a receiver on that play, especially with that kind of pre-snap stance, Tennessee still failed to stop Jackson from uncorking a 22-yard run. The Ravens ended up with a 3rd and 17 at the beginning of the drive.
The Ravens beat Tennessee, 21-0, and will be preparing for a match at home against the New Orleans Saints next Sunday.
The Titans (3-3) lost their second straight and were shut out at home for the first time since moving into Nissan Stadium in 1999.
