The Baltimore Ravens narrowly survived a four-interception game from Lamar Jackson to beat the Cleveland Browns, 16-10. Baker Mayfield simply couldn’t do enough to overcome a stifled Browns rushing attack to take advantage of the turnovers.

Baltimore Ravens

Quarterback

Three of Jackson’s four interceptions were charted as turnover-worthy plays, and he recorded zero big-time throws. He also averaged just 5.1 yards per attempt across his 32 attempts and took two sacks.

The Ravens quarterback completed just two of his nine passes 10-plus yards downfield for 26 yards, one touchdown and three picks.

Running Back

Veteran Devonta Freeman led all Ravens running backs in snaps played while Latavius Murray and Ty’Son Williams backed him up. Freeman averaged just 3.3 yards per carry and broke one tackle on his 16 carries. Murray and Williams combined for 15 rushing yards on nine carries with zero broken tackles.

Wide Receivers/Tight Ends

Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown shared the team lead in targets with 10, but neither wideout cleared 70 receiving yards. Andrews caught four passes for 65 yards and a touchdown, including an impressive 39-yarder that he secured even through a defensive pass interference penalty.

Offensive Line

None of the Ravens' offensive linemen had banner days as run-blockers, but all of them impressed in pass protection. On first review, Patrick Mekari and Kevin Zeitler allowed zero pressures across 38 pass-blocking snaps. Alejandro Villanueva led the team in pressures allowed with three.

Defensive Line

Justin Houston, Tyus Bowser and Odafe Oweh all had notable performances. Oweh led the team in pressures with six, while Bowser and Houston each added three of their own to the team’s total. Mayfield was under consistent pressure and was constantly pushed off the spot to make throws on the move.

Linebacker

Patrick Queen had one of the best games of his young career on Sunday night. He made multiple defensive stops and allowed just 16 yards in coverage. He should finish reviews with an 85.0-plus PFF grade.

Secondary

Cornerback Marlon Humphrey took a bit of a beating in coverage, but the rest of the Ravens' defensive backs largely held their own. Humphrey allowed over 100 yards and four first downs on 11 targets, but he also added two forced incompletions to his stat line. No other Ravens defensive back allowed more than 20 yards in coverage.

Cleveland Browns

Quarterback

Mayfield was a roller coaster on Sunday night. He finished the game with two big-time throws and two turnover-worthy plays across 40 dropbacks — and both of his turnover-worthy plays came from clean pockets. His accuracy was up-and-down, and he was often too slow when reacting to pressure in the pocket to make any plays downfield.

Running Back

Nick Chubb (30) and Kareem Hunt (23) led the Browns’ running back room in offensive snaps, but neither player could find any running room all game long. The duo combined for 36 yards, one first down and one broken tackle on 15 carries. More than 80% of their rushing yards came after contact, as well.

Wide Receivers/Tight Ends

Without Rashard Higgins or Anthony Schwartz, veteran Jarvis Landry stepped up as the team’s top receiver. He caught 6-of-8 targets for 111 yards and five first downs with zero drops on the day.

Tight end Harrison Bryant finished second on the team in receiving yards with 50 on just three targets and seven routes run. Bryant was limited due to a knee injury that he suffered on his 41-yard catch.

Offensive Line

Jack Conklin left the game after just 10 snaps due to injury, forcing backup Blake Hance onto the field. Hance and left tackle Jedrick Wills Jr. both allowed four total pressures, while Wyatt Teller finished with three pressures allowed. Joel Bitonio and J.C. Tretter finished the game with clean sheets in pass protection.

Defensive Line

Myles Garrett will finish PFF’s review process as the team’s highest-graded defensive lineman, but even he won’t clear 70.0. Garrett and Jadeveon Clowney both recorded five total pressures, but just a low percentage of their pressures were early in the play. No other Browns defender had more than two total pressures.

Linebacker

Rookie Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah was a bright spot in an otherwise bleak performance for Cleveland. He flew sideline to sideline en route to a team-high eight defensive stops and an 85.0-plus grade across 68 defensive snaps.

Secondary

Both John Johnson III and Grant Delpit should finish PFF’s review process with 90.0-plus grades. Johnson allowed just two receptions for 18 yards and a first down on three targets and snagged one of the four Jackson interceptions. Delpit allowed zero yards in coverage and had himself an interception, as well.

Ronnie Harrison will finish reviews as the team’s lowest-graded defensive back after allowing a team-high 74 yards in coverage.
