Baltimore Ravens

Quarterback

Tyler Huntley performed competently in relief of Lamar Jackson, throwing for 219 yards on 26-of-36 passing with one interception while adding 40 yards on the ground.

The second-year pro executed his strongest drive of the day when the team needed it most, completing his three final attempts including a 30-yard strike to Sammy Watkins to set up Baltimore’s game-winning score.

Huntley was able to lead the Ravens to victory despite facing almost constant pressure, as he succumbed to six sacks and finished with an average time to throw of 2.45 seconds. Making his first career start, Huntley primarily focused on the shorter and intermediate areas of the field, finishing with an average depth of target of just 5.1 yards. Huntley offset the lack of downfield attack with impressive accuracy, registering an adjusted completion percentage of 80.6%.

Running Backs 

Devonta Freeman continued to handle lead back duties for Baltimore, racking up 80 total yards on 22 touches including the game-winning touchdown with 22 seconds remaining. Freeman thrived as both a rusher and receiver in Sunday’s victory, forcing a team-high three missed tackles while picking up five total first downs. 

Latavius Murray made his return to the Ravens lineup, totaling 33 yards on 12 touches. Murray was relatively effective in his limited role, as his 3.2 yards per carry average led all Baltimore running backs. 

Wide Receivers/Tight Ends

Mark Andrews led the way for Baltimore through the air Sunday, hauling in eight of his team-high 10 targets for 73 yards. Andrews’ five first downs more than doubled the next Ravens pass-catcher, as the former Pro-Bowler consistently made crucial catches in the victory including the team’s lone contested catch.

Watkins led all Baltimore wide receivers with 48 receiving yards, including a crucial 30-yard catch-and-run on a blown coverage late in the fourth quarter. With Marquise Brown unavailable with a thigh injury, Watkins operated as the team’s primary deep threat and finished with an average depth of target of 10 yards to lead all Ravens pass-catchers. 

Offensive Line

Baltimore’s offensive line struggled to allow Huntley adequate time in the pocket, conceding 25 pressures and six sacks. Starting left tackle Alejandro Villanueva was particularly ineffective, allowing a team-high four pressures and one sack in pass protection. The unit was stronger in the run game, powering a Ravens rushing attack that averaged 3.6 yards per carry. 

Defensive Line

The Ravens defensive line manhandled Chicago up front, accounting for 15 unit-wide pressures and four sacks. Edge defender Tyus Bowser made his presence felt early and often Sunday as he finished with three pressures and two sacks, the second of which came on the game’s final play.

Player Pass Rushing Snaps Total Pressures Sacks 
Calais Campbell 29 0 0
Odafe Oweh 27 3 0
Justin Houston 24 3 1
Justin Madubuike 20 2 1
Tyus Bowser 16 3 2
Linebackers

Patrick Queen was a force, leading Baltimore with seven total tackles including a crucial third-down tackle for loss midway through the first quarter. He captained a Ravens linebacking corps that dominated in coverage, as they conceded receptions on just one of their five unit-wide targets for 2 yards. 

Secondary

The Ravens' secondary was inconsistent, as their man-heavy scheme resulted in a gut-wrenching mix of highlight-worthy stops and head-scratching blunders.  Former All-Pro cornerback Marlon Humphrey was unsurprisingly excellent in the victory, surrendering just two receptions on seven targets for 10 yards while registering one of the unit’s two forced incompletions.

Chicago Bears

Quarterback

Justin Fields started the game under center for Chicago, throwing for 79 yards on 4-of-11 passing and rushing for 23 yards before exiting with a ribs injury early in the third quarter. Fields displayed a number of positives before sustaining his injury, pushing the ball downfield and registering one big time throw while averaging 14.4 yards of depth per target. He also had a handful of negatives with an adjusted completion of just 40% and a passer rating of 62.3.

Behind L.O.S 0/0 0 N/A 0
Short (1-9) 1/2 6 50% 0
Medium (10-19) 1/5 22 20% 0
Long (20+) 2/3 51 66.7% 0

Field was replaced by backup Andy Dalton, who threw for 201 yards on 11-of-23 passing and two touchdowns. Dalton was overall competent in relief, as the 11-year pro had appeared to deliver Chicago a stunning victory with a gorgeous 49-yard touchdown toss to Marquise Goodwin with just 1:41 remaining. He was the more conservative of the two Chicago quarterbacks, as 43.5% of Dalton’s attempts were short of the first-down marker compared to 0% of Fields’ attempts. Dalton finished as the more efficient quarterback, though, registering an adjusted completion percentage of 52.4% and a quarterback rating of 107.3.

Andy Dalton | Week 11

Behind L.O.S 3/3 71 100% 1

Running Backs 

David Montgomery handled the majority of carries for Chicago, picking up 58 yards on the ground on 14 carries while adding one reception for 9 yards. The third-year pro was responsible for two of the team’s three explosive runs, leading all Bears rushers with two first downs accrued. 

Wide Receivers/Tight Ends

Darnell Mooney shone in the absence of Allen Robinson, hauling in five of his season-high 16 targets for 121 yards and one touchdown. Mooney’s score came on Dalton’s second attempt of the game, as the second-year pass-catcher took a screen pass 60 yards for the Bears first touchdown of the game. 

Goodwin was the other star of the Chicago passing attack Sunday, as he caught four of his eight targets for 104 yards including a 49-yard touchdown catch with 1:41 left in the fourth quarter. The score came on an impressive double move with Goodwin’s ridiculous speed on display.

Offensive Line

Chicago’s offensive line was up and down, surrendering 16 pressures and three sacks in pass protection while facilitating a Bears rushing attack that averaged 4.6 yards per carry. Starting left tackle Jason Peters was not at his best in pass protection, allowing three pressures and a sack.

Defensive Line

Edge defender Robert Quinn was magnificent, terrorizing Ravens offensive linemen to the tune of seven pressures and four sacks. He led an overall impressive performance from Chicago’s defensive line, as the unit totaled 21 pressures and six sacks while holding Baltimore rushers to an average of just 2.5 yards before contact. 

Player Pass Rushing Snaps Total Pressures Sacks 
Angelo Blackson 39 2 0
Bilal Nichols 36 3 0
Robert Quinn 34 7 4
Trevis Gipson 26 4 1
Cassius Marsh 20 2 0
Linebackers 

Roquan Smith was a man amongst boys Sunday, leading all defenders with 17 tackles while registering an average depth of tackle of just 2.17 yards. In coverage, Smith drew a unit-high three targets, allowing three receptions for 4 yards. 

Secondary

Chicago’s secondary performed admirably against Baltimore’s low-wattage passing attack, conceding 203 receiving yards on 20 unit-wide receptions. Tashaun Gipson Sr.’s fourth-quarter interception was the team’s defensive highlight of the day, as the veteran safety finished with a passer rating allowed of 39.6, lowest among Chicago’s defensive backs.

Jaylon Johnson 44 3/4 19 84.4
