» The backfield workloads continue to be intriguing. Edwards played the most, but Dixon was in for some of the key drives of the game and seems to be on the ascent.

» Hayden Hurst cannot get his rookie season off the ground. It seemed he might benefit from Jackson taking over at quarterback, but he was the fourth tight end in Kansas City, behind Maxx Williams, who was a healthy scratch just a few weeks ago.

» The Ravens will have a tough decision to make at left guard if Alex Lewis returns from the shoulder injury that kept him out against the Chiefs. Lewis has been banged up, but James Hurst looked rusty in his return from a six-game absence. The biggest looming question, of course, is what happens if Joe Flacco is ready to play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? If Flacco re-enters the lineup, other positions — especially tight end and running back — could be affected.

Tyus Bowser, LB — 14


» Not surprisingly, the Chiefs demanded heavy workloads from most of the Ravens’ top defenders. Humphrey and Tavon Young were hampered by groin injuries, leaving Jimmy Smith to play a season-high 84 snaps. Humphrey’s injury, especially, has to be a concern going forward, because he’s as important as any player on the defense.


» Suggs and Judon played season-high snap counts, and Za’Darius Smith came close. To their credit, all three edge rushers played well deep into the game as the Ravens relentlessly blitzed Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Onwuasor has re-asserted himself at weak-side linebacker after Kenny Young seemed ready to push him aside early in the year.
