OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Best Game: The Ravens had won only one game on the road when they went to Detroit on Monday night. The Lions took a 16-15 lead with 2:21 left, but Justin Tucker kicked a 61-yard field goal as time expired to provide Baltimore with its fourth straight win.

Worst Game: One week after that uplifting win in Detroit, the Ravens absorbed the worst home lost in franchise history, a 41-7 rout by New England.

Best Play: Joe Flacco’s 9-yard pass to rookie Marlon Brown in the back of the end zone with 4 seconds left in a 29-26 win over Minnesota.

Worst Play: Flacco’s fifth interception in a loss to Buffalo, a pass that bounced off Dallas Clark’s hands into the arms of Bills LB Kiko Alonso with under a minute left in a 23-20 game.

Biggest Surprise: Taking over for retired MLB Ray Lewis, free agent Daryl Smith led the team with 123 tackles. He also had five sacks and three interceptions.

Biggest Disappointment: Ray Rice ran for only 660 yards after a run of four straight years with at least 1,000 yards. Rice was slowed by an injured hip and ran behind an ineffective offensive line.

What’s Next: The Ravens made a slew of changes after winning the Super Bowl, so expect a massive roster shuffle during the offseason as the team strives to shore up the offensive line and fortify a receiving corps that could be without Jacoby Jones, an unrestricted free agent.
