Observations

It’s striking that Hill played more snaps than Ingram and Edwards combined. That speaks to Ingram’s struggles with his injured calf but also to how quickly the Ravens moved away from their running game as they tried to recover from a 14-0 deficit. Ricard also played far less than usual. Boyle suffered an unspecified injury midway through the game and played his fewest snaps of the season. With the Ravens looking to the air, Brown played 22 more snaps than he had in any previous game and Boykin played 25 more than he had in any previous game. Jackson shouldered an incredible load, either running or throwing on 79 of the team’s 97 offensive snaps.

Ravens defensive snap counts vs. Tennessee Titans

Marlon Humphrey, CB — 55

Chuck Clark, FS — 55

Earl Thomas III, FS — 53

Marcus Peters, CB — 49

Matthew Judon, LB — 47

Brandon Williams, DT — 44

Josh Bynes, LB — 38

Michael Pierce, NT — 38

Jaylon Ferguson, LB — 36

Chris Wormley, DE — 36

Jihad Ward, DT — 30

Patrick Onwuasor, LB — 29

Jimmy Smith, CB — 20

Domata Peko Sr., NT — 18

Brandon Carr, CB — 17

L.J. Fort, LB — 16

Tyus Bowser, LB — 11

Justin Ellis, DT — 11

Brynden Trawick, FS — 2

Observations

With the Titans leaning heavily on running back Derrick Henry, Smith and Carr played infrequently in what could be their final games with the Ravens. After a generally upbeat season, Bowser played his fewest snaps since Week 5, again probably because the Titans threw just 15 times. The team’s primary run defenders — Williams, Pierce, Wormley and Bynes — all played above-average snap counts.
