After three opposing running backs in the past four games had run for more than 100 yards, the Ravens got into the act with their own 100-yard rusher. Alex Collins carried the ball 18 times for 113 yards to become the team’s first ball carrier to reach the 100-yard threshold since Terrance West (Northwestern High, Towson University) amassed a career-high 113 yards and a touchdown on 21 attempts in a 28-27 loss to the Oakland Raiders on Oct. 2, 2016. “It feels amazing,” said Collins, whose previous career best was 82 yards most recently in a 26-9 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Oct. 1. “It’s been long coming. I’ve been close a few times, and you know, just the encouragement from the teammates, the other running backs, the O-line, everybody just wanted to make it happen for me and really worked extra hard making it happen for me.” With a 3-yard run on the offense’s first snap of the fourth quarter, Collins reached 102 yards. Collins has helped fill the void created by a left calf injury that has sidelined West for the past three contests and leapfrogged Buck Allen on the depth chart.
