Final Score

Baltimore Ravens 59, Miami Dolphins 10

Baltimore Ravens

Lamar Jackson and Marquise Brown lit up the Dolphins secondary for multiple explosive touchdowns. Brown was nearly unstoppable and showed his elusiveness by avoiding tackles. Jackson’s accuracy on down the field throws was on point, having himself the best passing performance of his career with five touchdowns.

All three running backs had solid performances, and tight end Mark Andrews proved tough to cover al game long.

Anthony Averett was targeted a lot today and had an up-and-down day in coverage. He made some really nice plays but also allowed the Dolphins receivers to get open deep a couple of times.

The Ravens’ front seven took advantage of their mismatch with the Dolphins’ offensive line. They created pressure constantly and allowed very little on the ground, making it hard for Miami to get anything going.

Rookie Takeaways

Marquise Brown is really, really fast. He looked every bit healthy coming back from his foot injury and made Minkah Fitzpatrick look silly on a handful of plays.

Miami Dolphins

Eric Rowe and Minkah Fitzpatrick had a rough day in coverage, and to make matters worse, the duo also missed some crucial tackles that ended up with the Ravens in the end zone.

Jerome Baker and Raekwon McMillan struggled in the run game and in coverage, missing tackles and several assignments. Christian Wilkins and John Jenkins showed some life on the defensive line, stuffing the run and getting some pressure on the quarterbacks.

Ryan Fitzpatrick was all over the place today. He made some great throws and made some poor throws. He had a couple of nice deep balls to DeVante Parker, but his accuracy left a lot to be desired.

The offensive line was poor today. They faced a lot of blitzes from the Ravens’ front seven and failed to pick up the majority of them, not allowing Fitzpatrick much time to throw. The run game was nonexistent because of the inability for the OL to create any holes

Rookie Takeaways

Preston Williams had a nine toe-tapping catch in the back of the end zone in the blowout loss.
