The Ravens' secondary was a big area of concern through the first six weeks of the season, as the team had allowed the eighth-most passing yards per game (269.5) in the NFL-and the loss of safety Tony Jefferson to a torn ACL only made the struggles all the more alarming.
So the Baltimore front office went out and traded for Rams cornerback Marcus Peters, shipping linebacker Kenny Young and a 2020 fifth-round pick to Los Angeles for the two-time Pro Bowler. He suited up for his first contest with the team in Week 7 against the Seahawks, and it only took two quarters for him to make a big impact on the game.

Peters returned Russell Wilson's pass 67 yards to the house, putting Baltimore ahead in the road contest against one of the teams atop the NFC standings. The interception was his third of the season.
