Steve Smith hauled in six balls for 80 yards and a touchdown, while Tyrod Taylor went 6-of-9 for 65 yards and a score and also rushed for 35 yards. Justin Tucker kicked three field goals in the win.

Robert Griffin III went just 5-of-8 for 20 yards and an interception, while Kirk Cousins threw for 122 yards on 14-of-20 efficiency with touchdowns to Santana Moss and Nick Williams in the setback.

Flacco connected with Smith on a 24-yard touchdown pass to cap an eight-play, 74-yard drive to give the Ravens a 10-3 lead heading into the half.

Tucker tacked on a 21-yard field goal less than two minutes into the second half after C.J. Mosely intercepted Griffin on the first play from scrimmage, setting the Ravens up at Washington's 26-yard line.
