The Ravens season has come to an end as the LA Chargers dominate them on the road, 23-17.

MVP: Patrick Onwuasor

Peanut did his damnedest to try and win this football game. The tackles for loss, sacks and forced fumble were all in vain, but he battled valiantly regardless. Yet another UDFA linebacker becoming a star in the NFL.


Za’Darius Smith — A great defensive effort and a field goal block helped keep the confidence high. Hope he sticks with the Ravens, but he’ll command attention in free agency.

Matt Judon — Another dominant performance by a linebacker. His work along the edge was huge in the beginning of the game.

C.J. Mosley — A solid fumble recovery and swarming around the football. This linebacker unit was something special today. Will be interesting to see where his contract status goes from here.

Michael Crabtree — Two touchdowns in the fourth is still worth a nod to the receiver. Too little, too late, though.


John Harbaugh — How do you not take over or make adjustments as you watch the offense fail for a full half of football?

Marty Mornhinweg — What the hell was this playcalling?

Entire offensive line — Where the hell was the blocking? James Hurst and Ronnie Stanley were manhandled all game. Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram FEASTED.

Lamar Jackson — The last eight minutes do not negate the first 50 minutes. He led the league in fumbles in seven starts. His passes were rough until the final two drives. The line and playcalling were trash, but he could have done more in the beginning.

Kenneth Dixon — Fumbling issues continue for this football team.

Special Teams defense — Allowing returns to give short fields killed the defense. They played absolutely out of their minds but when everything is 10-yards from field goal range, you can’t win.

Tyus Bowser — Missed two tackles which allowed big gains on the returns. Rough game for the young linebacker.
