The Ravens scored two rushing touchdowns in last Sunday's 25-15 win against the Cleveland Browns.

Boldin talked about the block and the value of blocking as a receiver.
What do you remember about that block that sprung Pierce?
It was just a run play. For us here, we take pride in blocking outside, and for me, it was a man-over block with no safety on that side. So it was an easy read for me.
When you are making a block, how do you know when to continue to block and when to let go so that you don't get flagged for holding?
Sometimes you can see the Jumbotron, and that lets you know. You can see the Jumbotron and see where the running back is. And you can tell by the defender, whether he's trying to slide off. If he's trying to slide inside, obviously, the running back is coming up inside. So you try to reposition yourself.
How much pride do you take in your blocking?
I just look at it as, when I have the ball in my hands, I want people blocking for me. And you never want to be caught on film and see that your guy could have had a touchdown, but your man made the tackle. That's something I take pride in. I think some people overlook it just because wide receivers aren't known for blocking. I think it makes the offense go. Whenever you see long touchdown runs, it's because guys are making blocks outside. Guys want to sustain drives and get their running backs big runs by blocking outside.
