The Facts: Allen was benched in the first quarter after his fumble was returned by Tyvon Branch 73 yards for a touchdown.
Diehards Line: It's the second straight week that Allen had fumbled. Terrance West got the bulk of the carries the rest of the game, finishing with 35 yards on seven carries. HC John Harbaugh said Allen isn't going to be "banished," which means he'll get a chance to start Sunday against the Steelers. Expectations should be tempered, but the matchup could help Allen get back on track.
