Final Score

Baltimore Ravens 24, Buffalo Bills 17

Baltimore Ravens

While this game didn't showcase Lamar Jackson‘s usual dominance, it was still a good game from the sophomore signal-caller. He made good throws when he needed to and added a lot with his legs. His receivers struggled to get open against the talented Bills coverage unit, and he definitely missed tight end Mark Andrews, but this game shouldn't detract from the MVP talk he's been involved in.

After Mark Andrews went down early, Hayden Hurst really stepped up at tight end for the Baltimore offense. He made a couple of nice catches and also had a huge touchdown catch and run that put the Ravens ahead for good. He also showed some capable blocking when the Ravens ran the ball.

No defender looked better in this game than Matthew Judon. He made multiple stops by himself to add on to the two sacks and numerous hurries while rushing the passer. He also made some big tackles on screen plays.

Domata Peko Sr. didn't play a ton of snaps, but it seemed like every time he was on the field, he was making an impact. Whether it was beating his blockers in the run game to affect the play or putting pressure on quarterback Josh Allen, Peko was all over the place.

Buffalo Bills

This game started with two straight drives that ended with a Josh Allen overthrow, and it didn't get much better for him from then on. Allen seemed to struggle with the wind, as many of his throws were either way too long or way too short. His receivers were getting open, but he just couldn't hit them consistently. He did have a couple of in-stride deep throws, but he also added multiple turnover-worthy plays.

Devin Singletary was the star of the Bills offense, as he looked like the best player by far for them. He picked up the majority of his game-high 89 yards after contact and forced multiple missed tackles. Singletary has completely surpassed Frank Gore as the Bills' workhorse, and this game was great proof as to why.

Cornerback Levi Wallace looked fantastic for the Bills, as he locked down the Baltimore receivers all afternoon. He was targeted a few times but gave up just one catch for minimal yards. He also added a great pass breakup.

While he didn't dominate as a pass-rusher, Ed Oliver's run defense was fantastic. He made multiple solo stops on which he completely overpowered his blocker and stopped the runner dead in his tracks. Even if he didn't end up making the tackle, he made the Ravens worry about him on every run play.
