Observations: Boyle did not just score his first career touchdown; he carried a huge workload because of his versatility and blocking punch. Ricard also played an expanded role, illustrating how much the Ravens leaned toward power football. Andrews, meanwhile, played just 34% of the team’s snaps, his lowest mark of the season. Moore’s offensive role essentially vanished with Marquise Brown back in the line-up.

Observations: Smith stepped right into a featured role after missing six weeks with a sprained knee. The Ravens’ top four cornerbacks all played at least 70% of the snaps, hinting at how defensive coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale might balance his line-up going forward. The Ravens also prioritized pass rushers — Ferguson, Ward and Bowser — over inside linebackers in this match-up. Onwuasor returned from an ankle injury that cost him two games and pushed Fort back into a supporting role. Bynes played just 37% of the defensive snaps after playing at least 61% in each of his previous three games.
