Thoughts after 3rd quarter Ravens, Lions

- The Ravens are controlling the tempo of this game, like a basketball team that wants to play a half-court game against a fast-breaking team.
- Tell me everybody in this town wasn't holding their breath when David Akers lined up to kick a 40-yard field goal. He made this one. And, man, he just drilled the ensuing kickoff out of the end zone while in for Sam Martin. Will Akers make if it comes down to a field goal under even more pressure. I'll tell you this, Ravens' kicker Justin Tucker looks like money in the bank. He has been very solid on all his four attempts tonight.
- The Lions are making too many mistakes again. They are fortunate, the Ravens don't have more firepower to make them pay. Very poor pass by Matthew Stafford on the INT.
- The Lions are playing this game relatively close to the vest, perhaps because of their turnover issues. Stafford, when he was given a free play, did cut loose on his throw to Calvin Johnson, resulting in the Lions' biggest play of the night.
- Megatron has played much better this half, which was expected, right?
