Rapid Reaction: Baltimore Ravens

INDIANAPOLIS -- A few thoughts on the Baltimore Ravens' 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium:

What it means: The Ravens wasted an admirable effort by their defense, falling to 3-2 on the season and one game back of the AFC North-leading Cincinnati Bengals, who play the New England Patriots on Sunday night. A week after scoring 38 points, the offense could manage only one touchdown and couldn't cross midfield on the final drive. Pass protection (four sacks), the inability to convert third downs and Torrey Smith's final dropped pass were the Ravens' downfall. The Ravens are now 0-6 in Indianapolis (including playoffs).

Stock Watch: Falling -- left tackle James Hurst. The undrafted rookie looked like an undrafted rookie starting his second career game. Filling in for the injured Eugene Monroe, Hurst gave up three sacks after the Ravens had gone three games without allowing one. He was exposed early in the second quarter, when he allowed a sack on fourth-and-1 from the Colts' 3-yard line. Hurst then got beat on an inside move with under two minutes left in the game, which led to another sack.

Struggling in secondary: It was a bad game for cornerbacks Lardarius Webb and Asa Jackson. Andrew Luck took turns picking on them throughout the game. The Colts essentially sealed the game late in the fourth quarter when T.Y. Hilton beat Webb for a 21-yard catch. Webb, who was inactive last week because he wasn't in shape, is having trouble staying with receivers.

Big pass defender: Haloti Ngata picked off a pass in the first quarter, which came three plays after Jacoby Jones' mishap on a punt return. Ngata leads the Ravens in interceptions this season, which says a lot about the Ravens' secondary play. He is now one of three players who weigh more than 300 pounds with five career interceptions. Dan Wilkinson and Kevin Williams are the others.

Game ball: Inside linebacker C.J. Mosley. The rookie first-round pick was all over the field. Late in the third quarter, Mosley picked off a pass at the goal line to stop the Colts in the red zone. In the first quarter, he stuffed the Colts on fourth-and-1 and he hit Luck, which led to Ngata's interception.

What's next: The Ravens play back-to-back games on the road for the first time this season when they travel to meet the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
