Offensive spotlight: Lamar Jackson is set to earn an 80.0-plus game grade after shaking off some early rust. He made three big-time throws and finished with a 72.4% adjusted completion rate after accounting for drops.

Defensive spotlight: Justin Houston tallied a game-high six pressures and terrorized the Jets' left side, which has been decimated by injuries. The veteran's 25% pass-rush win rate led the Ravens' defensive line.

Rookie spotlight: Sauce Gardner continues to look like a cornerback no quarterback will want to target with frequency. He saw just two targets on the day, breaking up one and allowing a catch on the other for only eight yards.

Offensive line spotlight: The Jets' offensive line combined to allow a whopping 20 pressures on first review. Laken Tomlinson was the main victim, surrendering seven hurries and losing another seven reps that didn't become pressure.
