By now you’ve seen or read all about the Ravens’ impressive season opening victory against the Dolphins in Week 1. Frankly, impressive may be underselling it considering Baltimore set multiple franchise records and thoroughly dominated in all three phases of the game.

With a firework display by Lamar Jackson and company on offense, as well as a collectively stout performance from the defense, there was no shortage of mind-boggling statistics from Sunday’s matchup.

Here’s a breakdown of all the defining numbers you need to know.


113 - The Ravens have won their past three season openers by 113 points totaling 126 points against the Bengals, Bills, and Dolphins, while holding these teams to a combined 13 points.

643 - The number of yards gained by the Ravens’ offense on Sunday, the most in franchise history

59 - Another franchise record, this time for most points scored in a game - 59

22 - At 22 years old, Lamar Jackson is the youngest quarterback in NFL history to post a perfect passer rating (158.3) in a game

324 - Jackson’s passing yardage from Sunday, passing his career high from last year of 204 against the Chargers in Week 16

87.5% - Jackson’s completion percentage against the blitz, as he completed seven of eight attempts

6 - The number of touchdown passes Jackson threw last season, just one more than he was responsible for in Week 1 alone (5)

2 - Rookie WR Marquise Brown caught two touchdown receptions on back-to-back drives, the first going for 47 yards and the second one for 83 yards.

14 - “Hollywood” did all this while playing just 14 snaps, a number that figures to increase as the season progresses

10 - After scoring twice on Sunday, RB Mark Ingram has now rushed for multiple touchdowns in ten games dating back to 2011

107 - Ingram’s yardage total on the ground against Miami, his highest total since Week 7 of the 2017-18 season

100% - TE Mark Andrews reeled in all eight of his targets on Sunday, which represents a new career-high

8 - The number of defenders who recorded QB hits, a group effort that made up for a mediocre sack total

4 - In the first quarter, Earl Thomas picked off Ryan Fitzpatrick for the fourth time in his career

31 - The number of first downs Baltimore gained, significantly more than Miami (12)

63.6% - The Ravens were 7/11 (63.6%) on third down against the Dolphins good, as well as 2/2 on fourth downs thanks to a fake punt conversion by Anthony Levine Sr.

71.4% - Baltimore converted on five of seven attempts in the redzone, which was an area of focus in the offseason after middling redzone success last year

40:07 - How long the Ravens had the ball for, compared to just 19:53 for the Dolphins
