As the second half begins, the Ravens are sitting left tackle Jared Gaither.  That means rookie Michael Oher shifts from the right to the left side and Joe Reitz goes in at right tackle.

Reitz gets the unenviable task of facing Julius Peppers, one of the most terrifying defensive ends in the league. 

Here’s a cool note: Reitz is a former NCAA basketball player from Western Michigan, while Peppers played for the great North Carolina Tar Heels.  Two hoopers going against each other.  I wonder if Reitz could have ever thought he’d have that matchup at this point in his career.

And you know what?  He did a pretty good job.  Actually, it was Oher that got beat by fellow rookie Everette Brown.  Oher also got called for a holding penalty on the Ravens’ first drive of the half.

Still, the Ravens are able to get within range of a 38-yard field goal from Steve Hauschka, who rebounded from his missed field goal earlier in the game.
