The New Orleans Saints were beating themselves up Sunday night after not doing a good job of beating up on the Baltimore Ravens in a 30-24 loss at M&T Stadium.

New Orleans did a poor job of tackling, the lowlight coming when five Saints missed an opportunity to wrap up tailback Ray Rice on a 32-yard screen pass in the third quarter. They also let Rice break loose for a 50-yard run in the fourth quarter.

Rice finished with a career-high 233 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns. A miss by safety Roman Harper led to an early 34-yard touchdown pass from Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco to rookie tight end Ed Dickson.
