Following Baltimore’s 59-10 rout in Miami, Lamar Jackson’s brilliant performance has been lauded. General manager Eric DeCosta realized early returns from his offseason acquisitions Earl Thomas, Mark Ingram, Marquise Brown and Pernell McPhee. Proven contributors Mark Andrews, Willie Snead IV, Marlon Humphrey and Matthew Judon also delivered impact plays.

Nonetheless, several under-the-radar Ravens are in contention for Unsung Hero of Week 1:

Anthony Levine Sr.

The special teams captain’s signature play was a 60-yard scamper after receiving a direct snap on a fake punt in the second quarter. On defense, Levine recorded a quarterback hit and supplied coverage that contributed to the success of the dime personnel package. This versatile veteran remains a genuine asset to the team.

Chris Wormley

Entering his third season with an opportunity for more playing time after the departure of Brent Urban, Wormley’s steady run stuffing allowed the Ravens to roster only five defensive lineman. Chris outsnapped both Michael Pierce and Brandon Williams in Week 1, helping the defense hold Miami under two yards per carry. He also displayed push against the pass on a few occasions, an encouraging development.

Bradley Bozeman

Baltimore entered Week 1 with uncertainty at the left guard position. Bozeman received the start and made his presence felt on the first play by connecting on a pull block to spring Ingram’s 49-yard tone setting run. Later, he put his man on the turf before Hollywood’s 83-yard touchdown and kicked out a blitzing defender during Ingram’s second quarter scoring plunge. It was an effective, confidence-building game for Bozeman.
