Ravens CB Jimmy Smith Diagnosed with Achilles Injury, Ruled Out vs. Lions

Ravens CB Jimmy Smith Diagnosed with Achilles Injury, Ruled Out vs. Lions

No throw was better than the 66-yard bomb he dropped right in Mike Wallace's hands to set up a touchdown, and equally as important, he played mistake-free again, with no interceptions for the second straight week.

The Baltimore Ravens will have plenty of keys on defense in order to win against the Detroit Lions, but one is so important, it deserves its own article.

Stafford left the game and went back to the locker room for X-Rays.

Stafford told reporters he believed his injury was caused by someone stepping on his hand, but he wasn't completely sure.

Otherwise, the offense played its best game of the season as quarterback Joe Flacco threw for two touchdown passes and completed 23 of 36 passes for 269 yards.

After losing to the Minnesota Vikings on Thanksgiving Day, the Lions (6-5) now trail the Vikings by three games in the NFC North with just five games remaining on the schedule.

Later in the third quarter, Stafford led another scoring drive, which ended with Tion Green's 6-yard touchdown run.

The Ravens' defense was beaten a few times, but they also made big plays, and either scored directly or gave the offense a short field.

Over the final 13 minutes, however, Baltimore put up 24 points.

Flacco culminated the Ravens' next drive with a 3-yard touchdown pass to undrafted rookie turned defensive lineman Patrick Ricard.

Thanks to the failed demolition of the Silverdome, this only ranks as the second-worst implosion for Detroit on Sunday. Rob Carr, Getty Images Lions' Nevin Lawson (24) and Quandre Diggs (28) tackle the Baltimore Ravens' Nick Boyle in the first quarter Sunday, Dec. 3, 2017 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, MD. In the first half of the game, Savage had clean pockets and was able to find wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins all over the field, including when he was one-on-one with cornerback Jimmy Smith.
