Alex Collins ran for a career-high 113 yards, and Baltimore (4-4) returned two interceptions for touchdowns in the most lopsided shutout in franchise history.
In the midst of one of his best performances of the season, Flacco was hit high by Alonso while sliding at the end of an impromptu run. Flacco’s helmet flew off his head, and the 10-year quarterback appeared wobbly as he struggled to his feet.
Alonso was flagged for unnecessary roughness, providing Baltimore with a first down that ultimately turned into a touchdown.
Flacco was initially placed in concussion protocol, and by halftime was ruled out.
Joe had a concussion and a cut ear, coach John Harbaugh said. They were stitching it up without any anesthesia, so he’s a tough dude. That’s as much as I know.
The winner will remain within shouting distance of the Eagles, while the loser might need to focus on the wild card.
Rice spent time helping Spence and defensive end Ryan Russell during camp this summer.
He taught me things in five minutes that I’d never even heard of or even thought to put into my game, Spence said. He pointed out things in my game that I’d never even heard of. It was a blessing to have him out here to talk to us.
He had no excuse for the interceptions. Linebacker C.J. Mosley went 63 yards for a score, and Jimmy Smith took his 50 yards to the house.
On the first one, he made a heck of a play. He just jumped up there and caught it, Moore said. On the second one, (Smith) sat back a little bit and waited for me to throw.
