The Baltimore Ravens jumped out to a 17-0 lead and then cruised to a big win at home against the Los Angeles Chargers, 34-6, in Week 6.

The Ravens' rushing attack pounded the Chargers' defense for 187 yards on 38 attempts for 4.9 yards per carry. The same could not be said for Los Angeles, which gained 26 yards on 12 carries.

In a battle of potential MVPs, both quarterbacks were bottled up through the air. Justin Herbert threw for 195 yards on 39 attempts, while Lamar Jackson threw for 167 yards on 27 attempts. Jackson, however, rushed for 51 yards and averaged 6.4 yards per carry.

The Ravens are at home again next week against the Cincinnati Bengals, while the Chargers are on a bye.

Baltimore Ravens

Quarterback

Lamar Jackson started the game hot, going 7-of-8 for 56 yards and a 100% adjusted completion percentage in the game’s opening quarter. Yet, he went just 12-of-19 for 111 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions — one of which came after a drop — across the final three quarters. Jackson added four first downs with his legs and forced two missed tackles, as well.

Quarter Completions Attempts Yards TD:INT
1 7 8 56 0:0
2 4 7 39 0:1
3 6 9 65 1:0

Running back

Devonta Freeman and Latavius Murray each handled nine carries to lead the team. Freeman turned his touches into 53 yards, with 28 coming after contact. Murray recorded 44 yards, with 23 coming after contact.

Wide receiver/tight end

Rookie Rashod Bateman made his first appearance of the season and was targeted six times. He came away with four catches for 29 yards. Tight end Mark Andrews also saw six targets, turning them into 68 yards on five catches. Andrews was the only Ravens pass catcher over two yards per route run (2.83). 

Offensive line

The Ravens' offensive line was credited with giving up two sacks and six pressures. Bradley Bozeman and Alejandro Villanueva surrendered the sacks, and Bozeman was the only player to give up multiple pressures (two).

Defensive line

Justin Houston was the lone Ravens defensive lineman with a sack, and he finished with four pressures on the day. Rookie Odafe Oweh tallied two pressures of his own. Houston also made two run stops on just six run-defense snaps. 

Linebacker

Tyus Bowser had two pressures and was not targeted in coverage. Malik Harrison and Josh Bynes were each targeted three times, and each gave up two catches — but for just six yards and 15 yards, respectively. Harrison allowed the Chargers' lone touchdown. 

Secondary

Anthony Averett was targeted heavily for the second straight week, and he gave up four catches on six targets for 44 yards. All four were for first downs. On the other side, Marlon Humphrey was targeted seven times but allowed only two completions for 19 yards. Safety DeShon Elliot was targeted four times and picked off a pass.

Los Angeles Chargers

Quarterback

Justin Herbert had a solid day when kept clean, posting a 77% adjusted completion rate in those situations. His receivers dropped four passes on such plays, though. It was a different story when he was pressured. Herbert went just 2-of-7 for eight yards on nine pressured dropbacks.

The Chargers running backs combined for one forced missed tackle and one first down on the ground. Both were by Joshua Kelley, who had four carries for seven yards.

Wide receiver/tight end

Mike Williams and Jared Cook each dropped two balls. Keenan Allen was perfect, catching all five balls thrown his way for 50 yards. Twenty-five of those yards came after the catch.

Offensive line

Tackle Storm Norton allowed four pressures and a sack, while Rashawn Slater gave up the only other pressures credited to the offensive line. 

Defensive line

Joey Bosa, Uchenna Nwosu and Linval Joseph each had a sack. Jerry Tillery didn’t get on the scoresheet but tallied two pressures. Nwosu made two run stops.

Kyzir White picked off two passes and gave up three catches for just 37 yards in coverage. Amen Ogbongbemiga gave up three catches on three targets, but for just 28 yards.
