Offensive spotlight: It was a slow start for the Bills on offense, but as the game went on, they leaned more and more on Josh Allen, and the MVP-calibre QB delivered time and time again. He passed for 213 yards, but what meant more in the end for the Bills was his 70 yards rushing on 10 carries — 69 of which came after contact. It seemed like the Ravens couldn’t contain Allen in crucial situations and kept drives alive, and led to points.

Defensive spotlight: The Ravens defense showed up strong to start the game, but the ball-hawking play of Bills veteran safety Jordan Poyer was the difference in this one. Poyer snagged two interceptions on the day, the second of which came in the red zone as the Ravens attempted to win the game on their final drive.

Rookie spotlight: Bills rookie wide receiver Khalil Shakir didn’t get a ton of targets, but he made the most of them when they came his way. He caught both passes thrown his way, and both were for first downs. His 68.0 receiving grade was the best on the team on first review.

Offensive line spotlight:  It wasn’t the best day for either offensive line — there's a lot of talent on both defensive lines, too — but the Bills offensive line had the better day. They only allowed seven pressures and a pressure percentage of 17.1%.
