Fantasy studs and duds
Joe Flacco had a monster fantasy performance, throwing for 341 yards, three passing touchdowns and an interception. He also ran for a touchdown, giving him four in total.
Baltimore wide receiver Torrey Smith had a nice game--despite hauling in just two passes, both went for touchdowns. He finished with 67 yards, tied for the most on the team.
Oakland wide receivers Denarius Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey put together nice statlines in the loss as well. Moore had 90 yards and a touchdown, while Heyward-Bey was close behind with 82 yards and a touchdown of his own.
Without Darren McFadden, the Raiders got almost no production from their running backs. Marcel Reece led the team with 48 yards on 13 carries, and the team had just 72 rushing yards in total.
Did they cover?
The Ravens entered the game as six-point favorites and won by 35. So yes, they did cover the spread.
