Rave: Rookie Micah Hyde had his best game Sunday, and the numbers tell the story: six tackles, including one for a loss, a forced fumble and a 10-yard sack of Joe Flacco. Hyde also may have won the punt-return job with five returns for 68 yards (13.6-yard average).

Rant: Jarrett Boykin looked lost on two series in the second quarter. He and quarterback Aaron Rodgers misfired on three straight plays, and it appeared Boykin wasnít where Rodgers expected him to be on any of the throws.

Rave: Safety Morgan Burnett played a huge role in keeping the Ravens out of the end zone on three plays inside the 4-yard line. On first and second downs, he stopped Ray Rice for short gains. Then on third down, he made the key play by hitting Rice to slow him before help arrived. One play later, the Ravens turned the ball over on downs when Bernard Pierce was stopped at the 1 on fourth down.

Rant: The kick-return game continues to flounder. On the only return of the day, after Baltimore scored to cut the lead to 16-10 with 12 minutes left in the game, rookie Michael Hill caught the ball 3 yards deep in the end zone and was tackled at the 16-yard line. The Packers were able to get out of trouble with a 12-play, 72-yard drive that ended with a 31-yard Mason Crosby field goal.

Rave: Punter Tim Masthay had an up-and-down day, but his 52-yard second-quarter punt out of the Packersí end zone forced Tandon Doss to call a fair catch at the Ravensí 47-yard line, averting a field-position nightmare.
