Ravens snap-count analysis: Fresh faces filled many roles against Steelers after COVID-19 scrambled roster

Several Ravens stepped into bigger roles as the team dealt with mass COVID-19-related absences in a 19-14 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Ravens offensive snap counts vs. Pittsburgh Steelers 12/2/20


Orlando Brown Jr. T 54

Bradley Bozeman G 54


Trystan Colon-Castillo C 54

Ben Powers G 54

Robert Griffin III QB 45

Marquise Brown WR 42

Devin Duvernay WR 41

Luke Willson TE 37

Tyre Phillips T 20

Miles Boykin WR 18

Sean Culkin TE 16

Eric Tomlinson TE 16


Ben Bredeson G 13

Trace McSorley QB 9

James Proche II WR 1

Observations: There’s not a lot to be gleaned here given the mass COVID-19-related absences. Duvernay stepped into many of Willie Snead IV’s snaps while Boykin remained a bit player. Bryant maintained his workload but was targeted only twice as the Ravens struggled to get anything out of their passing game. Willson took Mark Andrews’ role while Culkin and Tomlinson saw their first action for the Ravens. Phillips did not start but stepped in at right tackle when back spasms sidelined Fluker. Colon-Castillo filled in seamlessly for starting center Patrick Mekari. Edwards and Hill split snaps almost evenly, with Hill outproducing his more accomplished running mate, who had battered the Steelers in past meetings.

Chauncey Rivers LB 15

Jimmy Smith CB 14

Malik Harrison LB 10


Aaron Adeoye LB 8

Jordan Richards SS 1

Observations: Bowser played 14 more snaps than he had in any previous game this season as he assumed some of the workload left by Matthew Judon and Pernell McPhee. He made the most of his time with three quarterback hits and an interception. Ferguson also played a season-high snap count, while Rivers got on the field in obvious passing situations. At weak-side linebacker, Fort returned to playing more than Harrison. Wolfe and Ellis maintained their heavy workloads on the interior as the Ravens continued to play without Calais Campbell and Brandon Williams. Tramon Williams stepped into a major role in the secondary after a groin injury sidelined Smith. Harris played his first snaps for the Ravens.
