Ravens offensive snap counts vs. Cincinnati Bengals 10/24/21

Alejandro Villanueva T 73


Ben Powers G 73

Kevin Zeitler G 64


Marquise Brown WR 63

Lamar Jackson QB 61

Bradley Bozeman C 61

Tyre Phillips T 53

Mark Andrews TE 50

Rashod Bateman WR 46

Patrick Ricard FB 43

Devin Duvernay WR 36


Devonta Freeman RB 29

Le’Veon Bell RB 22

James Proche WR 16


Trystan Colon C 15

Tyler Huntley QB 12

Eric Tomlinson TE 11

David Sharpe T 9

Miles Boykin WR 4

Tylan Wallace WR 2


Observations: The Ravens, playing from behind for much of the afternoon, leaned away from their power game, with Ricard playing 59% of offensive snaps compared to 80% the week before and Tomlinson playing 15% compared to 33% against the Los Angeles Chargers. Bateman continued as the No. 2 wide receiver option behind Brown. The rookie has produced, so it will be interesting to see which receivers lose snaps when Sammy Watkins returns from his hamstring injury. The Ravens have not made much use of Boykin on offense since he returned from injured reserve. The Ravens turned to Phillips when Mekari departed with an ankle injury, leaving Sharpe, a practice-squad call-up, as their swing tackle. With Latavius Murray out, the Ravens turned to Freeman as the first option in their running-back rotation, but he, Bell and Williams combined for just 29 yards on 11 carries.

Chris Board LB 22

Pernell McPhee LB 19

Justin Ellis DT 18


Jimmy Smith CB 17

Brandon Stephens FS 17

Malik Harrison LB 11

Observations: The Ravens made few adjustments to their defensive rotation from Week 6. Bynes played 73% of the snaps at middle linebacker, with Queen starting beside him and playing ahead of Harrison. Oweh played 60% of defensive snaps, his lowest since Week 1, and did little to mark the box score. The Ravens have established a stable rotation in their defensive backfield, with Young, Smith and Stephens seeing little change to their workloads from week to week when all three are healthy. It will be interesting to see if they shake things up when cornerback Chris Westry returns. Clark has yet to miss a defensive snap this season, and Humphrey has missed just one.
