Ravens D knocks Ryan's bunch back
BALTIMORE — Rex Ryan had seen it many times: The Ravens didn't do much on offense, yet it hardly mattered because their defense was so sharp.
That's how Baltimore won when Ryan was defensive coordinator from 2005-08, and that was the formula that beat Ryan's Jets on Sunday.
Joe Flacco threw a 66-yard touchdown to Jacoby Jones and Justin Tucker hit four field goals, plenty against the sputtering Jets offense. Baltimore forced three turnovers, allowed 220 yards and denied 11 of 12 third-down tries. Cornerback Corey Graham had two interceptions.
"I feel like we were dialed in today," linebacker Terrell Suggs said. "There's always a little something added when we're playing Rex. We're proud of the fact what we didn't give up a touchdown, and getting off the field on third down was huge."
New York alternated wins and losses in its first 10 games, but the pattern ended with its second straight defeat.
