In Lamar Jackson’s second road start Baby Lamar Jackson Jersey , the Ravens suffered a heartbreaking 27-24 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Baltimore certainly had their opportunities to win this game, and they could not deliver. Although there are no moral victories in the NFL, this should be the next closest thing. They held one of the league’s hottest offenses to 27 points. In the first quarter, Travis Kelce recorded four receptions for 53 yards. He finished with seven receptions for 77 yards and a touchdown. Kelce without a doubt was an issue for Baltimore’s defense, but they contained him as the game progressed. Despite suffering an injury, Tyreek Hill was another huge problem for the Ravens. He finished with eight receptions for 139 yards, including 39 yards on Kansas City’s final drive in overtime. In a game where every drive mattered, Baltimore’s offensive line faltered at the wrong time. On the final drive in regulation, Lamar Jackson did not identify a blitz, but Ronnie Stanley chose to block the outside rusher instead of the insider rusher, Justin Houston Jaylon Ferguson Baltimore Ravens Jersey , who recorded a strip-sack. In overtime, Ronnie Stanley gave up a critical pressure. It would be unfair to blame the offensive line entirely, but they fell apart as the game progressed. 1. Progress, not perfectionJackson’s first road start in Atlanta was hardly a test. The crowd noise was minimal, while the stadium was barely filled. One week later, Jackson finally felt the pressure of a road game in the NFL. The crowd noise was evident, and the Ravens had to adjust their snap counts accordingly. The game plan was not much different than the previous weeks as it was another run-heavy approach. The final run-pass ratio was 26 to 39, but Jackson was impressive throwing the football. He delivered some of the best balls of his young NFL career. Similarly to last week, Jackson’s receivers did not do him any favors with untimely drops.He was much more accurate throwing the football, specifically on intermediate and deep routes. Not every throw was perfect, but he gave his receivers an opportunity to make plays on the football. Jackson is not free from blame as he did make several bad decisions and held onto the ball too long. His lone turnover was a protection issue Color Rush Jaylon Ferguson Jersey , and he should have corrected it at the line of scrimmage. 2. Air Marty?With Joe Flacco at the helm, Marty Mornhinweg was a pass-happy play caller. He was often criticized for his unwillingness to run the football. The emergence of Lamar Jackson has changed Mornhinweg’s approach, but he still had several questionable play calls. In overtime, the Ravens ran a QB draw on 2nd and 18. Not only did Lamar Jackson suffer an injury on this play, but Kansas City sniffed it out immediately despite a holding penalty on James Hurst. This was too predictable of a play call, and it could be viewed as a boneheaded decision, to say the least. Mornhinweg needs to improve his play calling to avoid Jackson from taking too many hits in any given game. Not utilizing Jackson’s legs would be a mistake, but Mornhinweg needs to find the proper balance. 3. Kenneth Dixon season?Baltimore’s running back room has been a revolving door for much of the season, but it appears they may have a new three-headed monster with Ty Montgomery, Gus Edwards, and Kenneth Dixon. Montgomery has served as the third-down back Jaylon Ferguson Baltimore Ravens Jersey , while Edwards and Dixon take care of first and second downs. Edwards had another solid performance with 62 yards, but the bigger takeaway was Dixon’s hard-nosed north-south running. Dixon finished with 59 rushing yards, a touchdown, and a 21-yard reception. He could have a significant role in this offense if he can stay healthy, 4. Adapt or lose?Since Flacco’s absence, the Ravens’ offensive approach has changed significantly. It has been a run-heavy approach, which caters to Lamar Jackson’s strengths. They have incorporated concepts such as zone read, power read, and counter bash among other plays. It has been successful as they have nearly rushed for 200 yards every single game in the last four weeks. One of the most significant counterpoints to this offensive strategy has been that it can not sustain itself, and it would be hard to compete with the upper echelon teams in the NFL. Thus far, Baltimore has proved both of those statements are incorrect. Four straight games with a ton of success running the ball White Jaylon Ferguson Jersey , and they nearly defeated one of the best teams in the NFL with an MVP candidate in Patrick Mahomes. This should be the biggest takeaway from this game — with Lamar Jackson at quarterback, the Ravens can compete with any team in the league. One of the biggest factors for this has been their defense. 5. Patrick who?Baltimore’s defense put together another impressive performance against one of the league’s best offenses. Patrick Mahomes may very well win the MVP award, yet the Ravens’ defense limited him for much of the game. Like most top-tier quarterbacks, it is impossible to contain him for the entire game, but he was far from MVP-esque until late in the fourth quarter. Don Martindale dialed up a beautiful game plan that mixed in three and four-man rushes with exotic blitzes. They gave up a huge fourth and nine play, but it would be invalid to disregard the other positive things they did, including an interception and a three and out. It was not perfect, but it was part of a winning formula. 6. Top need?It is far too early to think about the offseason and Baltimore’s upcoming needs, but it is evident what position will be at the top of the list — safety. Tony Jefferson was out due to an injury, and Eric Weddle and Chuck Clark struggled mightily. Weddle consistently takes poor angles in the open field and struggles in single-high looks, while Clark is more of a box safety who does not mesh well with Weddle or Jefferson. Even if Jefferson was able to play this week Best Lamar Jackson Jersey , it might not have made much of a difference. Although he has been much better this season, he still has his fair share of struggles in coverage.Week 3 Inactives: ILB C.J. Mosley to miss his first game since 2016 The Ravens will be without inside linebacker C.J. Mosley (knee) for the first time since October 2016. Mosley is dealing with a bone bruise that he suffered last week against the Cincinnati Bengals. He attempted to test the injury on Thursday, practicing and running sprints, but his knee just did not feel quite right. Also missing for the Ravens is defensive tackle Michael Pierce. Pierce has a sore foot, but he practiced on Friday. He was limited and not expected to play today. Cornerback Anthony Averett is inactive, and he will be replaced by former practice squad corner Robertson Daniel. With Mosley and Pierce inactive, Baltimore will have to find new ways to defend against Denver’s running game. Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay has also been able to exploit opposing defenses in the passing game.Here are the rest of Baltimore’s inactives:As for Denver, they will be without former Bengals cornerback Adam Jones (thigh). Third-round selection Isaac Yiadom will be in his place. Below are the Broncos inactives:
