The Baltimore Ravens defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 26-6. After the game a number of the Ravens dedicated the win to their former teammate Ray Rice who has been suspended after the tape was released showing him knocking out his then fiance now wife Janay Palmer.

Torrey Smith, C.J. Mosley and Jacoby Jones were among the players who told thePittsburgh Post-Gazette that the win was for Rice.

“Ray is still a great guy,” Smith said. “He’s a model man. He made a huge mistake, but he’s still a great person.”

Rice was cut by the Ravens on Monday, just hours after TMZ released a video of the former Baltimore running back punching his wife in an Atlantic City hotel elevator. Rice was given an indefinite suspension by the NFL shortly thereafter his release.

“We wanted to get that for Ray,” Mosley said. “He was part of this organization for a long time. He put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into it.”

”We all wish the best for him,” Mosley added. “Even though he messed up, every man got to go through their mistakes to get better.”

Terrell Suggs, one of the leaders in the Ravens locker room, said that despite everything, the team still loves Rice.

“It was a very emotional game,” Suggs said. “He’s done a lot for this city. We love our brother.”

Cornerback Jimmy Smith echoed Suggs’ sentiment, “I love the guy,” Smith told theBaltimore Sun. “I still support him. I can never condone what he did, but I wish the best for him and his family.”

“We know what time it is in this circle,” Jacoby Jones added. “Ray is our brother. We pray for him.”

Ravens coach John Harbaugh didn’t specifically mention Rice, but he did say he was impressed with how his team handled the adversity this week.

“We had a tough family situation,” Harbaugh told the Baltimore Sun. “I thought our guys handled it tremendously with class, with character, they responded.”
