Rapid Reaction: Ravens 27, Dolphins 13


Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

Apparently, a Raven can tame a Wildcat.

In an interesting battle of two teams fighting to get back to .500, the Baltimore Ravens rode their top-ranked defense to accomplish that feat in a 27-13 road win over the Miami Dolphins.

Opponents had struggled this season stopping Miami's dual-threat "Wildcat" rushing attack of Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams. But the Ravens (3-3) held both tailbacks to 43 combined yards on the ground and extended their streak to 25 straight games without a 100-yard rusher.

Baltimore broke a three-game losing streak to claim its spot for second place in the AFC North. The Ravens have three of the next four games on the road, but they begin that stretch with a home date against the Oakland Raiders Oct. 26.
