Ravens, Justin Forsett run past Saints in win
Ravens running back Justin Forsett had a career night against the Saints on Monday, carrying the ball 22 times for 182 yards and two touchdowns in a 34-27 win.
Forsett was nearly unstoppable against a Saints defensive front that was dominated by the Ravens' offensive line. Not only were there plenty of lanes to run through, Forsett made a lot of defenders miss while bouncing off tacklers. Forsett's vision was also on display, highlighted by his second touchdown of the game in the fourth quarter.
On the play, Forsett waited for a hole to develop on the left side of the line before bursting through for a 20-yard touchdown.
The Ravens' win keeps pace with the rest of the AFC North. Cincinnati (7-3-1) remains in first place with Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Baltimore behind it at 7-4. The Saints, however, fall to 4-7 but are still tied for first place with the Falcons in the pitiful NFC South.
