Ain't no party like a sack party, 'cause a sack party don't stop.
"They said if we get one more, we're going to break a record," linebacker Za'Darius Smith said. "So we went and got two more, right?"
Sunday's sack fiesta blasted the team record of nine, which Baltimore had obtained three times. According to ELIAS, it marked the third time in which a team had 11-plus sacks in a shutout since team sacks were recorded in 1963.
Don 'Wink' Martindale's unit had Mariota seeing ghosts, as the Titans QB was unsure where the pressure was coming from all day. Mariota completed just 10 passes while taking 11 sacks, becoming the first player since Jay Cutler in 2010 to be sacked more times than he completed a pass. Mariota was pressured on 53.8 percent of his dropbacks, highest in a game so far this season (min. 14 attempts).
Ravens defenders wanted to get the team record for Martindale, who took over for ex-defensive coordinator Dean Pees. Pees retired this offseason, then unretired to join Mike Vrabel in Tennessee.
