Halftime: Ravens cruising past Raiders

BALTIMORE -- The Ravens are making it look easy with a 27-10 halftime lead over the Raiders:

  • Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is having another strong game at home. He is 15 of 21 for 225 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He also scored Baltimore's first touchdown with a one-yard sneak.

  • Baltimore has been hurting Oakland with its tight ends. Dennis Pitta and Ed Dickson have combined for seven catches for 126 yards and one touchdown.

  • The Ravens defense had held the Raiders to a field goal until Ed Reed failed to wrap up receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey, who broke free of the Pro Bowl safety for a 55-yard touchdown. Reed was holding his shoulder (which has been bothering him for most of the season).
