    After a tough start to the season, Baltimore looks like it may have turned the corner after its week 6 match-up vs. the Cowboys. The big key in the comeback victory was not what Ravens QB Joe Flacco did, but what he didn't do. That would be turn the ball over. Flacco ended up throwing for 287 yards with 2 touchdowns and just 1 INT. This is Flacco's most efficient game of the season and will look for it to be a spring board going forward. He was able to connect with 5 different receivers including TE Ed Dickson, who had a monster game with 6 catches for 138 yards and 1 TD. WR Anquan Boldin was also a favorite target of Flacco, catching 4 passes for 91 yards and 1 TD of his own. The Raven pass offense finally seems to be heading in the right direction after an awful start.

    Cowboy QB Tony Romo finished with solid numbers on the day, 236 yards passing 1TD and 1INT, but was under siege for most of the game. Romo fumbled the ball on 4 different occasions as a result of 6 Ravens sacks, but was able to recover all but one. He was helped by a strong running game by DeMarco Murray, who finished the game with 21 carries for 136 yards and 2 TDs to go along with 3 receptions and 13 yards. Murray was able to give the Cowboys a shortly lived lead at 24-23 in the final few minutes. He will no doubt be counted on to make plays with a weak offensive line in front of him.

    Down 24-23, Flacco was able to make enough plays to set up the game winning FG with just a few seconds left. Baltimore learned from its past mistakes and squib kicked the ball instead of kicking deep to ensure a victory.

    yup. Another nip and tuck game that Dallas cannot close out. Had the Ravens in 4th and 6th on the last drive and they converted to Ray Rice for 20+ yards into FG range. Our O-line is terrible.. just brutal.. I don't see this team being consistent until we can address our lack of talent up front. We will be competitive, but Romo is just getting killed right now.
