Tavares Gooden led the Ravens with eight tackles during Baltimore's 33-31 defeat to the Minnesota Vikings last Sunday.
Ravens blogger Steve Hasler wrote: "Tavares Gooden finally revealed what all the buzz has been about him. He showed great instincts, covered receivers well, ran hard to the ball, showed uncanny speed, reacted and shed well, tackled hard and in fact led the team in tackles. Gooden’s best play may have been streaking across the field to catch Peterson from behind after Reed let him escape." You can see that play, at about 2:45 into the highlights, here.
