Mark Andrews TE 58

Marquise Brown WR 54

Devonta Freeman RB 48

Devin Duvernay WR 30

Patrick Ricard FB 28

Tylan Wallace WR 20

Latavius Murray RB 19

Nick Boyle TE 16

Sammy Watkins WR 14

Eric Tomlinson TE 9

Observations: Freeman played 68% of offensive snaps compared to 27% for Murray. Duvernay’s return pushed James Proche to the inactive list, but Wallace held on to his piece of the pie. Early in the season, who could have guessed he would play more snaps than Watkins in a crucial game? Bateman played the most snaps at wide receiver for the second time in three weeks. Colon stepped in fully for a sick Bradley Bozeman. Ricard played a smaller than usual, but significant, role in his first game since Week 13.

Observations: As expected, the defense looked completely different this week after players returned from the reserve/COVID-19 list. With Anthony Averett out, Smith stepped up to play every defensive snap; he had not played any in five of the previous six weeks. Young and Bowser also played every snap for the first time this season. The Ravens did not go the entire game with the same two safeties as they often do. Instead, they kept Young on the field with Clark and rotated Stone, Stephens and Jefferson. Queen played 74% of defensive snaps, his lowest since Week 12. He struggled at times in pass coverage. Campbell went back to a typical workload for the first time since Week 13 after struggling with a hamstring injury. Houston was also back to normal after a stint on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Harrison played his first defensive snap since Week 7.
