Webb: 'The ref made a mistake'

After not getting much contact on Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton in the beginning, the Ravens began to find their mark in the second half.

Dalton had just been intercepted by Ravens safety Ed Reed, who took the pass 34 yards for a touchdown to extinguish any hopes of a comeback. Then Dalton fumbled on a sack by Ray Lewis that led to a one-yard touchdown run by Ray Rice.

With Cincinnati in obvious pass situations and trailing 41-13, Lardarius Webb started inching towards the line of the scrimmage and blitzing from the edge. He nailed Dalton on his blind side just as he released a pass.

Webb was called for a personal foul even though he didn't use his helmet and made no contact with Dalton's head. Dalton was rattled, but Webb doesn't expect the league to fine him for the blow.

"I was just giving effort. I wasn't trying to hurt him. I wasn't trying to do something stupid," Webb said. "I'm going to leave it to the NFL, let them see it. I was trying to be as legal as possible. I put my head on the other side of him. I have him a shoulder. I hit him low, in between the waist and ribs.

"People make mistakes and the ref made a mistake. ... You're going to have adversity. You're going to have bad calls."

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Left guard competition heating up

Kick off your Monday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

1. The Ravens are still looking for a left guard and the competition is "wide open" according to Ravens media. Last week, Coach Harbaugh tried out 2017 fifth-round pick Jermaine Eluemunor in the spot, acknowledging his hard work there.

2. Linebacker Kenny Young is expected to be a big playmaker this season. Now that C.J. Mosley is gone, Young is expected to fill that void. “I’m not going to make expectations for myself so soon, but what I expect to do right from the get-go is compete hard and make plays,” Young said to Ravens media. “My expectation is to make plays. That’s it. Make plays.”

Looking Ahead:

July 15: 4 p.m. ET deadline to get a long-term deal done with designated franchise tag players.
