GLENDALE, Ariz. -- A look at the Baltimore Ravens who were “up” and those who were “down” in Monday's 26-18 loss to the Arizona Cardinals:


Steve Smith: The numbers won't jump out, but you have to put them in context. Smith led the Ravens with 78 yards receiving even though he was double-teamed and matched up against top cornerback Patrick Peterson. He continues to show the most fight on a one-win team.

C.J. Mosley: This was a good bounce-back game for Mosley, who had struggled the past few weeks. He had one sack, which led to a missed field goal on the opening drive, and finished with two tackles for losses.


Eugene Monroe: His bad year continued as he struggled in run blocking and pass protection, especially when lined up against Dwight Freeney (one sack and two quarterback hits). Monroe was knocked out of the game in the fourth quarter with a shoulder injury.

Justin Forsett: His streak of three games with 100 yards from scrimmage ended. Forsett managed 44 total yards (36 rushing, 8 receiving), but he did score on a 14-yard run.

Jeremy Ross: His fumbled punt late in the first half set up Arizona's go-ahead touchdown. Ball security has been a problem in the past with Ross, who fumbled three times on returns last season for the Detroit Lions.

Kamar Aiken: His stats don't suggest he's a starting wide receiver in the NFL. He caught one of three passes thrown his way for 6 yards. This year, Aiken has been held to 22 yards or fewer in four of seven games.
