Ravens: By the numbers
By Jamison Hensley
A look at numbers to remember for the Ravens when they play in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday:
3 -- Sacks by Terrell Suggs in his past three games against the Patriots. He has also forced two fumbles during that time.
7 -- Ravens players selected this year's Pro Bowl (fullback Vonta Leach, linebacker Ray Lewis, defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, safety Ed Reed, running back Ray Rice, linebacker Suggs and guard Marshal Yanda).
9 -- Touchdown passes of at least 20 yards by Joe Flacco. Five went to Torrey Smith.
21 -- Ed Dickson's catches on third down, which tied him for second most in the NFL by a tight end.
24 -- NFL-high sacks on third down by Baltimore this season.
38.1 -- Red-zone touchdown percentage allowed by the Ravens, which led the NFL.
50 -- Receptions by wide receiver Smith, a franchise record for rookies.
95 -- Ravens are 30-3 (.909) when quarterback Flacco has passer rating of 95 or higher.
122 -- Career-high points recorded by kicker Billy Cundiff in 2011.
145.7 -- Average yards for scrimmage for Rice in three career games against New England (including playoffs).
