Inside the numbers: Ravens stop Dolphins

A few key numbers from the Ravens’ 27-9 win over the Dolphins, courtesy of the NFL Network’s research department.

  • Ravens FS Ed Reed was responsible for two of Sunday’s takeaways, intercepting two passes, one of which he returned 64 yards for a touchdown (video)¬†to break a 3-3 tie during the second quarter. Reed led the NFL with nine interceptions during the regular season and now has 12 career return touchdowns, including the playoffs. The Ravens are 11-1 when Reed scores a touchdown. Including the playoffs, he now has 10 interceptions over his last seven games, an NFL record over a seven-game span since 1991.
  • Ravens QB Joe Flacco became the third rookie since 1970 to lead a team to a playoff win as a starter, joining Ben Roethlisberger (2004) and Shaun King (1999). Flacco was 9-of-23 passing for 135 yards (video), and he also had a 5-yard touchdown run.
