Quarter By Quarter

Ravens Gameday

Ravens 14 Redskins 0

The first quarter was the Ed Reed show. The Ravens safety set up the first score, an 8-yard run by Le'Ron McClain, when he intercepted a tipped Jason Campbell pass. After the acrobatic interception, the Ravens marched 55 yards in five plays in 2:06. Reed scored the second touchdown himself when he knocked the ball out of Clinton Portis' arms as the Redskins running back was falling, picked the ball up after it hit the ground and made a nice move at the 5-yard line to get into the end zone.

Ravens: McClain 8 run (Stover kick), 12:04

Ravens: Reed 22 fumble return (Stover kick), 9:43

Ravens 14 Redskins 0

Neither team had good scoring opportunities as each tried to out-slug the other for the quarter. The Redskins had the best chance, but Shaun Suisham missed a 48-yard field-goal attempt wide right. The Ravens' Joe Flacco was just 2-for-9 for 56 yards in the first half. He completed one pass in each quarter as the Ravens had just 115 yards of offense in the first half.

Ravens 17 Redskins 0

Defense again dominated the third quarter for both teams, and the Ravens were the only ones able to get on the scoreboard. Matt Stover kicked a 32-yard field goal. More important, the kick capped a 14-play, 65-yard drive that ate 6:33 off the clock.

Ravens: FG Stover 32, 4:15

Ravens 24 Redskins 10

The Redskins scored their 10 points off turnovers (an interception of Flacco led to the field goal and a fumble by Willis McGahee led to the touchdown) as they closed the Ravens' lead to 17-10. But the Ravens came up with a 12-play, 83-yard drive that knocked 7:52 off the clock and culminated in a 28-yard pass from Flacco to Derrick Mason.

Redskins: FG Suisham 43, 13:45

Redskins: Randle El 5 pass from Campbell (Suisham kick), 11:32

Ravens: Mason 28 pass from Flacco (Stover kick), 3:44
