Observations: Ricard played a season-high 79.7% of offensive snaps after playing just 21.9% the previous week, indicating how heavily the Ravens leaned into their power game. Bateman played the second most snaps among wide receivers in his debut. Proche took the biggest hit from his arrival, playing 45 fewer snaps than he did in Week 5. Sammy Watkins’ eventual return from a hamstring injury could make receiver snaps even harder to come by. Andrews played a season-low 53.6% of offensive snaps despite leading the team in receptions and receiving yards. Murray, Bell and Freeman split time fairly evenly at running back, though Murray’s ankle injury was a factor in that distribution. Phillips played his first snaps since Week 1.

Brandon Stephens FS 13

Pernell McPhee LB 12

Observations: Bynes went from not playing at all in Week 5 to playing the most snaps at inside linebacker in Week 6, a sign of how the Ravens wanted to shake things up in a troubled position group. Queen played a career-low 33.9% of defensive snaps, though he would have played more if he did not hurt his thigh in the first quarter. Elliott stepped back into a full workload after missing the previous two games with a quad injury. Stephens’ snaps plummeted as a result, but he played well in the time he was on the field. The Ravens went with a small group of defensive linemen, listing Broderick Washington as a game-day inactive, but they managed to get by without putting unusual stress on any of their interior defenders.

"I'm very happy, and they've brought a lot," said Harbaugh on how happy he is with running backs Devonta Freeman, Latavius Murray and Le'Veon Bell.
