FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- A look at those who were "up" in Sunday's game against the Ravens, and also those at the opposite end of the spectrum:

Up
LeGarrette Blount -- Running back brings a hard-charging style to an offense that achieved the desired balance.

Julian Edelman -- Receiver rolls 7s with seven catches for 77 yards as he continues to be one of the club's most reliable players.

Rob Ninkovich -- Defensive end records a sack and crashes down on fourth down to make the tackle and turn the ball over on downs in the third quarter.

Offensive line -- With Logan Mankins starting at left tackle and undrafted rookie Josh Kline at left guard, this was a stellar effort.

Logan Ryan -- Rookie cornerback has two inteceptions and a pass-breakup on a fourth-down play in the third quarter.

Down
Steve Gregory -- Called for pass interference in the fourth quarter to set up the Ravens' first touchdown, and also can't corral Torrey Smith on a long third-quarter gain down the sideline.

Devin McCourty -- Safety can't corral two would-be interceptions.

Ron Winter's officiating crew -- Too many penalties contribute to a game that is long and has little flow.

Expert picks -- Any chance we can get a re-do?
