Miami Dolphins at Baltimore Ravens: 3 Things to Watch

Joe Flacco is in the concussion protocol Thursday night after taking a vicious shot to the head from Miami Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso.

Flacco was giving himself up with a slide after scrambling on a third-and-ten play when Alonso came flying in with a nasty hit straight to the quarterback's head. Flacco's helmet immediately flew off and he had a dazed look on his face. Flacco is now being evaluated in the locker room for a concussion, and it would be surprising for him to take the field again in this game. Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh went after Jensen for going after Alonso. Ravens coach John Harbaugh had a confrontation with Alonso after the hit.

Ryan Mallett came in and threw for a score to put Baltimore up 20-0. On the drive, Mallet completed a touchdown pass to tight end Benjamin Watson.

Ryan Mallet took over at quarterback for the Ravens.
