Bills 23, Ravens 20: post-game awards for Buffalo Rumblings Podcast

New, comments

We need your help pinpointing key players and moments from the Buffalo Bills' 23-20 win over the Baltimore Ravens for our next podcast.

Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Spor

It's that time of the week again: Brendan Harrington, Matt Warren and I are planning out tonight's Buffalo Rumblings Podcast, in which we'll be breaking down yet another Buffalo Bills game, and we're looking for your feedback from yesterday's 23-20 win over the Baltimore Ravens.

Offensive Player of the Game

The Bills ran for 207 yards in beating the Ravens; perhaps you want to single out Fred Jackson or C.J. Spiller, or maybe you want to give a little love to one or more of the blockers that paved the way against a Ravens defense that came into the game ranked No. 4 against the run. Or, maybe you want to ignore the running game entirely and focus on a player like Robert Woods, who had 80 yards, a touchdown and another touchdown erased by an iffy call on a replay.

Defensive Player of the Game

Three players doubled up in certain categories: Marcell Dareus had two sacks, and both Kiko Alonso and Aaron Williams hauled in two interceptions. We imagine that the latter two will pace the voting today, but there may be other players to consider, as well - like, say, Jim Leonhard (who had a fifth team pick of the day).

Turning Point of the Game

Throughout a second half in which Buffalo's 13-point lead slowly dwindled, then was re-built, then dwindled again, there were a lot of potential turning points that ultimately didn't matter. Still, there are several contenders here, starting with John Harbaugh's decision to kick a field goal from inside the 10-yard line with four minutes remaining.

Goat of the Game

As in any victory, there are struggles to be found. Justin Rogers may be a worthwhile name to bring up here - again. Same for punter Shawn Powell, who pretty unbelievably has not yet earned the permanent nickname "Shank" from Bills fans. Who else might garner attention for this category?
