The Ravens earned their tenth win of the season in Week 14 with a 37-31 overtime thriller over the Los Angeles Rams. Baltimore’s top rated defense allowed more than 400 yards to the rebuilding Rams without creating a takeaway, but forced a three-and-out in overtime when it mattered most. The Ravens offense passed 43 times compared to 26 runs, contributing to a nearly seven minute disparity in time of possession. Ultimately, however, Baltimore’s playmaking quarterback and depth of receiver talent kept them atop the AFC standings.

Quarterbacks

Lamar Jackson: 72 Offensive Snaps (100%)

Tyler Huntley: Did Not Play

Josh Johnson: Inactive

Lamar passed for 316 yards and three touchdowns to one interception, and ran for 70 yards, including four first downs on the ground.

Running Backs

Justice Hill: 30 (42%) — 13 Special Teams Snaps (35%)

Keaton Mitchell: 24 (33%) — 6 (16%)

Gus Edwards: 20 (28%)

Undrafted rookie Mitchell led the backfield with nine carries for 54 yards. Hill caught one of two targets for a 12 yard gain. Edwards snap share was below 30-percent for the second straight game and he managed just 15 yards on six rushing attempts.

Tight Ends

Isaiah Likely: 57 (79%) — 9 (24%)

Patrick Ricard: 23 (32%) — 7 (19%)

Charlie Kolar: 16 (22%) — 30 (81%)

Filling in for Mark Andrews, Likely played a similar number of snaps and produced a similar stat line as the former All-Pro routinely generates with five catches for 83 yards and a score, but the majority of his yardage came on a 54-yard touchdown. Neither Ricard nor Kolar received a touch in Week 14.

Wide Receivers

Zay Flowers: 70 (97%)

Nelson Agholor: 43 (60%)

Odell Beckham Jr.: 38 (53%)

Rashod Bateman: 34 (47%)

Tylan Wallace: 5 (7%) — 25 (68%)

Devin Duvernay: 0 — 5 (14%)

Flowers and Beckham tied for the team lead with 10 targets apiece, the rookie finished with six catches for 60 yards, a touchdown and two-point conversion while the veteran posted four catches for 97 yards and a 46-yard touchdown. Bateman’s snaps were reduced from previous weeks, possibly because of a misplayed deep ball. Agholor picked up the slack by catching all five targets thrown his way for 32 yards.

Offensive Line

Kevin Zeitler: 72 (100%) — 5 (14%)

John Simpson: 72 (100%) — 5 (14%)

Tyler Linderbaum: 72 (100%)

Morgan Moses: 64 (89%)

Ronnie Stanley: 58 (81%)

Patrick Mekari: 14 (19%) — 5 (14%)

Daniel Faalele: 8 (11%) — 5 (14%)

Ben Cleveland: 0 — 5 (14%)

In an unexpected twist, the Ravens rotated both offensive tackle positions between their starters and backups after returning from the bye week. Stanley and Moses held up well against the Rams subpar edge rushers. Overall, the blocking unit surrendered five quarterback hits and two sacks for a combined loss of just six yards. Future Hall of Fame Aaron Donald created some pressure, primarily against Simpson, and Linderbaum was charged with a safety due to an errant snap.

Defensive Line

Justin Madubuike: 58 Defensive Snaps (75%) — 7 (19%)

Michael Pierce: 49 (64%)

Brent Urban: 28 (36%) — 7 (19%)

Travis Jones: 25 (32%) — 12 (32%)

Broderick Washington: 17 (22%) — 7 (19%)

Madubuike shouldered a heavy workload and still notched five quarterback hits, five solo tackles and his 11th sack of the season. Pierce was uprooted by double teams at times and Washington did not record a statistic. Jones, however, recorded a sack and a trio of pressures during his limited pass rushing opportunities.

Inside Linebackers

Roquan Smith: 77 (100%)

Patrick Queen: 77 (100%)

Del’Shawn Phillips: 0 — 32 (86%)

Josh Ross: 0 — 30 (81%)

Trenton Simpson: 0 — 25 (68%)

Sean McVay’s scheme put Baltimore’s inside linebackers in conflict. Roquan had a pair of tackles for loss among his five solo tackles but he and Queen struggled to get off blocks against the run or effectively patrol zone coverage between the second and third level of the defense.

Outside Linebackers

Jadeveon Clowney: 42 (55%)

Kyle Van Noy: 41 (53%)

Odafe Oweh: 38 (49%)

Tavius Robinson: 18 (23%) — 17 (46%)

Malik Harrison: Inactive

This was a relatively quiet game for the edge defenders. Van Noy and Oweh combined for nine pressures without a sack and Clowney had perhaps his least disruptive outing this season.

Cornerbacks

Brandon Stephens: 77 (100%) — 8 (22%)

Marlon Humphrey: 77 (100%)

Arthur Maulet: 32 (42%) — 23 (62%)

Jalyn Armour-Davis: 0 — 19 (51%)

Ronald Darby: 0 — 15 (41%)

Rock Ya-Sin: Inactive

Returning from a multi-week injury layoff, Humphrey surprisingly played every defensive snap. It was a mixed showing, the former All-Pro nearly intercepted a pass in the end zone and recorded a quarterback hit but allowed nearly 100 receiving yards into his coverage. After playing every defensive snap of the previous contest, Darby was relegated to special teams duty but received a game ball for his efforts in the fifth phase.

Safeties

Marcus Williams: 77 (100%)

Geno Stone: 70 (91%) — 19 (51%)

Kyle Hamilton: 43 (56%) — 3 (8%)

Daryl Worley: 1 (1%) — 32 (86%)

Williams logged five solo tackles and a pass defensed. Stone also made five solo stops. Hamilton exited the game early with a hopefully short-term knee injury.

Specialists

Justin Tucker: 12 (32%)

Jordan Stout: 10 (27%)

Tyler Ott: 9 (24%)

Tucker knocked through field goals of 31, 47 and 33 yards. Stout netted a 45.5-yard average on four punts. And the play of the game came on special teams when Tylan Wallace, filling in for an injured Devin Duvernay, returned a punt 76 yards for a walk-off touchdown in overtime.
