Observations: Murray easily carried the heaviest load at running back and played more than Ty’Son Williams, who was a healthy scratch, had in any of the first three weeks. Bell was the No. 2 option in his first game for the Ravens. Proche played almost as many snaps as he had in the previous three games combined and made good use of his time with five catches. Powers and Cleveland continued to share time almost evenly at left guard. Ricard played a season-high 70% of offensive snaps while Andrews played a season-low 63%.

Observations: As expected, Stephens took on most of DeShon Elliott’s workload as a starting safety. Averett stayed on the field for almost every snap despite an ankle injury suffered in practice Thursday. Smith played five more snaps than he did in Week 3, but the Ravens are still managing the strain on the veteran cornerback. Campbell continued to be the stalwart of the defensive line while Houston played 61% of defensive snaps after he missed the previous week on the reserve/COVID-19 list. With the front seven healthier in general, McPhee, Washington and Ellis returned to their supporting roles. Board played a season-high 48% of defensive snaps, though not at the expense of Harrison or Queen.
