Ravens' Justin Forsett relishing role in 'dream' season

In his second stint under Baltimore Ravens new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, Justin Forsett has been a revelation.

On Sunday, Forsett carried 20 times for 112 yards and scored two touchdowns as the Ravens beat the Tennessee Titans 21-7.

Entering the season, the 29-year-old journeyman was viewed as a player merely on the roster to add depth. However, he's proven vital to the Ravens' success this season.

"It's been a dream come true just to get the opportunity to come out here and play and show what I can do," he said, per CSN Baltimore.

NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah during his Scout's Eye segment on NFL NOW on Sunday said that Forsett's skills mesh perfectly with Kubiak's offensive system.

"Vision, instincts, quickness all that stuff is outstanding," Jeremiah said. "(Forsett) doesn't have that elite size you look for to really pound on people, but inside the tackles, you see a pick-and-slide runner ..."

Sitting at 6-4 in the difficult AFC North, it's worth wondering where the Ravens season would be if not for the emergence of Forsett, who is having a Pro Bowl-type campaign.
