"I knew when I got drafted and Joe [Burrow] got drafted that we were going to be seeing each other twice a year," said Patrick Queen.

Ravens offensive snap counts vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Orlando Brown Jr. T 63


Matt Skura C 63

Bradley Bozeman G 63


Lamar Jackson QB 62

Ronnie Stanley T 62

Marquise Brown WR 54

Patrick Mekari G 45


Mark Andrews TE 43

Nick Boyle TE 39

Willie Snead IV WR 38

Miles Boykin WR 36

Gus Edwards RB 25

Mark Ingram II RB 19

Devin Duvernay WR 18

J.K. Dobbins RB 18

Ben Powers G 18

Patrick Ricard FB 17

James Proche II WR 6

Robert Griffin III QB 1

D.J. Fluker T 1

Ben Bredeson G 1

Observations: Mekari took the majority of Tyre Phillips' snaps at right guard, but Powers also played several series as the Ravens continued to assess their interior options. Offensive coordinator Greg Roman seemed to make a concerted effort to get Ingram the ball early after he played just 14 snaps in Week 4. This time, Dobbins drew the short straw in the running back rotation, while Edwards received his largest workload of the season. The Ravens seem to play Duvernay a little more every week as they look for more production from their wide receivers. Proche also played a season-high six snaps on offense.

Marcus Gilchrist FS 20

Malik Harrison LB 14

Anthony Averett CB 11

Chris Board LB 6

Observations: Madubuike stepped into a full share of defensive-line work in his NFL debut, playing nearly as much as Campbell and Wolfe. Campbell’s snap count dropped from 55 to 34; perhaps that’s a sign of how the Ravens will manage the veteran’s workload when they have a full cupboard of options. On the edge, Ferguson played 24 snaps for a second straight week after dropping to 14 in Week 2. Judon continues to play less than he did in 2019 — 62% of defensive snaps through five games compared to 81% last season. With Smith returning to a typical workload, Averett’s snaps plummeted from 52 to 11. Gilchrist received significant playing time in his Ravens debut.
