The Baltimore Ravens [5-1] leave Century Link Field with a discouraging 30-28 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles [1-4-1].
MVP Calais Campbell
Three sacks for the defensive lineman. Three sacks for the man Eric DeCosta traded a fifth-round pick to acquire. Big man Campbell dominated the Eagles’ offensive line time after time and is now ever closer to 100 career sacks.
Lamar Jackson — The quarterback went 16/27 for only 186 yards and one passing touchdown, but added another 108 yards, including a 37-yard touchdown. Good effort by Jackson to seal the game.
Nick Boyle — Another touchdown reception from the tight end. He’s been stringing together a lot of red zone opportunities.
Justin Tucker — The man went 3/3 on field goals, including a 55-yarder.
Sam Koch — Some brilliant punting on his record-breaking day, including three of seven punts inside the 20-yard line.
Marlon Humphrey — His third-straight game with a forced fumble and his second-straight game with a sack. Continues to build a case for Defensive Player of the Year.
James Proche II — Fielded the onside kick and helped stop the madness of an Eagles’ comeback.
The Ravens — They’re 5-1 and heading into a bye week. This game didn’t end the way expected but the team has only one loss, which was against the reigning Super Bowl champions.
*= This title does not mean these players are losers. They played a poor game. It happens to the best players and should be taken lightly.
All offensive lineman, save Matt Skura — Ronnie Stanley with four penalties, two accepted. A slew of holding calls, false starts and illegal formations. This absolutely ruined any offensive success in the second half and left the door wide open for the Eagles’ comeback.
Miles Boykin — I don’t see him lasting much longer in rotation. Devin Duvernay and James Proche II will likely earn more offensive snaps these next two weeks of practice with the bye now this week.
Defensive drops — Three easy interceptions fell through the hands of the defense. Against the Eagles that can happen, but not against the upper echelon teams.
