Baltimore’s pass rush helps it escape with a victory over Miami
Question of the Day
The next time they made sure he didn’t escape.
Elvis Dumervil sacked Tannehill for a 5-yard loss in the final minute to push the Miami Dolphins to the edge of field-goal range, and two plays later Caleb Sturgis missed a 57-yard try, giving Baltimore a 26-23 victory Sunday.
Baltimore finished with six sacks, three by Terrell Suggs.
“We weren’t perfect, but we made plays we needed to,” Suggs said.
Dumervil pushed them back to the 39.
“We had good coverage, and I was able to make the play,” he said.
That might have been enough to make Sturgis miss. He was wide left with 33 seconds to go.
“Bad time to miss,” said the rookie, who had been 10 for 10. “I wanted to make sure I got it there. Unfortunately I hooked it pretty good.”
The Ravens (3-2) rediscovered their ground game, bounced back from a loss last week at Buffalo and won on the road for the first time this season.
“It’s hard to function offensively when you’re going backward,” coach Joe Philbin said. “We’re going to fix the problems we have. We’re not going to sweep them under the rug.”
Baltimore’s Joe Flacco passed for 269 yards and had one interception after throwing a career-high five interceptions last week. He had three completions of at least 40 yards, and each set up a score.
