It was a very unfortunate week for the Ravens, who not only lost their third straight game, but also lost Torrey Smith in the process.
The Baltimore Ravens suffered an embarrassing loss on Sunday to Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, but even more importantly, lost more key players due to injury.
Perhaps the biggest is receiver Torrey Smith, who sustained a concussion and did not return. Running back Bernard Pierce also was dealt a concussion while receiver Tandon Doss twisted his ankle.
Despite being in serious pain, Terrell Suggs played most of the game with a torn right biceps.
On Thursday night, the Cincinnati Bengals hammered the Philadelphia Eagles, 34-13, and only lost lineman Andrew Whitworth, who suffered a concussion.
Against the Washington Redskins, the Cleveland Browns watched two defensive stalwarts leave in safety T.J. ward and lineman Frostee Rucker, with knee and groin issues.
The Pittsburgh Steelers took on more water with another defeat, this time to the Dallas Cowboys. However, they only need to deal with one new injury, a rib ailment on the part of receiver Emmanuel Sanders.
