And after a deep bomb to a wide open Torrey Smith got the Ravens in the red zone, another short toss to Smith got them into the end zone, as the Ravens would take a 9-0 lead as the first quarter came to a close.

Looking to build on their 9-0 lead, Joe Flacco and the offense came back out on the field. However, Vontaze Burfict, just named to his first Pro Bowl, wouldn’t allow them to get in the end zone this time as he found Flacco for the sack.
