Quarterback Joe Flacco threw for two touchdowns and led the Baltimore Ravens to their second consecutive divisional title with a 33-14 dismantling of the New York Giants.
The Ravens (10-5) won the AFC North as Flacco completed 25 of 36 passes for 309 yards, with his two TD passes going to Torrey Smith, who caught a 6-yard scoring pass in the 1st quarter, and Ray Rice, who scored on a 27-yard pass in the 2nd quarter.
Baltimore's defense stepped up and contained Eli Manning, who threw for just 150 yards in a losing effort for the Giants (8-7).
The Ravens, who were playing in their second game since Jim Caldwell replaced Cam Cameron as offensive coordinator, scored on their first two possessions and piled up 533 yards against the porous New York defense.
Baltimore, which managed its best offensive performance of the season on Sunday, had 289 yards of total offense in the first half alone.
The Giants were eliminated from contention for the NFC East title and will have a tough time making the playoffs.
The defending Super Bowl champions have lost five of their last seven games in a woeful stretch that saw them get shut out 34-0 by the Atlanta Falcons last week.
Manning completed 14 of 28 passes for 150 yards and was sacked three times by the aggressive Ravens defense. EFE
