Takeaways

» Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg promised a concerted effort to get tight end Hayden Hurst involved, and the rookie played a career-high 30 snaps in the absence of inactive veteran Maxx Williams.

» Collins remained the team’s featured runner even after he lost a fumble for the third time this season.

» Moore played his second-most snaps of the season, and his workload nearly matched those of Brown and Crabtree.

» The Ravens had to play Eluemunor at left tackle just six days after they brought him up from their practice squad. That tells us how much injuries have taxed their offensive-line depth.

» Jackson played his most snaps since Week 1 as he took on mop-up duty after the game was out of hand.

Takeaways

» Wormley continued his rise in the middle, playing more snaps than either Pierce or Brandon Williams. His versatility helped the Ravens cover for the loss of Willie Henry.

» Slot corner Tavon Young played a season-low 25 snaps as the Ravens leaned more toward using their linebackers against Carolina’s top-shelf running attack.

» Kenny Young played seven more snaps than he did against the Saints, while Bowser returned to the rotation after playing zero defensive snaps the previous week.

» Averett returned in a limited role after missing five weeks because of a hamstring injury. The Ravens again struggled in the secondary as Carr and Jimmy Smith played the whole game (Smith sat out one snap) in the absence of Marlon Humphrey.
