Pat Ricard 1-yard touchdown reception: After posting just three points in the first quarter, the Ravens quickly found the end zone in the second frame thanks to FB Pat Ricard. Lamar Jackson found Ricard open in the left flat and “Project Pat” demonstrated his versatility, making an impressive diving grab. Almost immediately after corralling the pass, Ricard popped back up and made sure to cross the goal line.
L.J. Fort 21-yard fumble return touchdown: The less-heralded “L.J.” on the roster wound up making the biggest game-changing play on Sunday, although it goes without saying that Marlon Humphrey deserves credit here, too. Humphrey punched the ball loose from the arms of Keke Coutee, setting up L.J. Fort to promptly scoop up the fumble and return it 21 yards to the house for a timely touchdown.
Marcus Peters interception: On the very next drive, Marcus Peters decided to get in on the turnover action with one of his own. With the Texans threatening to drive past midfield, Peters made a teriffic play in coverage. Peters jumped the passing lane on a pass intended for Randall Cobb and corralled Deshaun Watson’s pass in space before returning it 11 yards.
Mark Ingram II 30-yard rushing touchdown: With a 10-point lead in scoring territory, the Ravens opted to roll the dice on fourth down and attempt a conversion rather than take the field goal. It goes without saying that this decision worked in their favor. Lined up in the rare wildcat formation, Mark Ingram took the direct snap from Matt Skura and burst through the open hole created by the offensive line. Ingram rushed 30 yards untouched for his first score of the season.

J.K. Dobbins 44-yard rush: In what was a quiet day for the Ravens’ rookie running back, J.K. Dobbins made sure his second professional game didn’t end without at least a little but of fireworks. With just over two minutes remaining in the game, Dobbins took a handoff from Jackson and dazzled his way to a 44-yard gain — Baltimore’s largest offensive gain of the day on a single play. Dobbins nearly lost his footing but managed to keep his balance and showcased impressive speed in the open field.
