Ben Powers G 7

Ben Bredeson G 4

James Proche WR 1

Observations: Phillips and Bozeman did not play the entire way. With the game in hand late, perhaps the Ravens simply wanted to take a look at their reserve options on the interior offensive line. As a result, Bredeson saw his first NFL action. Snead and Boykin played season-low snap counts while Boyle and Ricard saw their workloads increase sharply from the previous week, indicating the Ravens were more run-oriented. We’ve come to expect the democratic rotation at running back, but it was still striking to see Ingram on the field for just 14 snaps. He routinely played 30 snaps or more in 2019. Duvernay received his promised increase in work, though Jackson targeted him just twice.

Marcus Peters CB 66

DeShon Elliott S 63

Anthony Averett CB 62

Patrick Queen LB 57

Calais Campbell DE 55

Matthew Judon LB 42

Jihad Ward DT 39

Tyus Bowser LB 38

L.J. Fort LB 35

Brandon Williams NT 32

Jimmy Smith CB 29

Pernell McPhee LB 28

Justin Ellis NT 25

Jaylon Ferguson LB 24

Broderick Washington DT 21

Chris Board LB 10

Malik Harrison LB 9

Khalil Dorsey CB 4

Observations: With Smith limited by a knee injury, Averett played a career-high snap count, more than doubling his total from the previous week. With Derek Wolfe out, Washington received a healthy dose of experience after not playing at all in Week 3. Ward and Ellis played season-high snap counts. While Queen is pushing toward every-down status, fellow rookie Harrison has been stuck in a reduced role since he played 21 snaps in Week 1. The Ravens eased McPhee’s workload slightly, something they’ll probably look to do when they can after the veteran broke down last season.
