The Ravens provided Jackson Ample Time and Space (ATS) on 11 of 32 drop backs (34%).  That’s typical for today’s game, but Jackson did not do much with the opportunity set.

The Ravens ran only 52 scored snaps (excludes accepted penalties which result in no play, kneels, spikes, and special teams plays that result in a run or pass).

Stanley:  Ronnie had his best game of the season.  He and Bozeman failed to negotiate a stunt handoff of Jones which resulted in a strip sack (Q2, 0:52).  That was his only negative event.  He missed 3 blocks, 2 of which were losses at the LoS.  I reduced his adjustment for failing to block Hitchens (Q3, 12:56) on a screen left to Ingram which went incomplete as Hitchens arrived just after the football.  Ronnie had his head turned to Ingram and was the only one who could have allowed Mark to make the catch without being blown up.  He made 1 block in level 2 and connected on 2 of 2 pulling assignments.  His highlight was an outstanding seal of Taco Charlton on the left edge of Jackson’s 11-yard, play-action run left (Q3, 8:55)  That’s as good a seal block as you’ll ever see against a big man, particularly given how he maintained and pivoted in space to the echo of the whistle. 

Scoring:  52 plays, 48 blocks, 3 missed, 1/2 sack, 45 points (.87 per play).  That’s an A with adjustment.

Bozeman:  Bradley had his first mediocre game in a long time.  He was beaten inside by Clark who tripped down Jackson (Q1, 4:54).  The officials missed the contact and allowed the play to continue and Jackson was eventually sacked by Jones by the left sideline.  As I score such plays, the initial flush always gets the biggest share, but in this case the action afterwards was all a result of the other blockers being compromised by Jackson being forced from the pocket.  Bozeman picked up another half sack, shared with Stanley on a failed stunt handoff (Q2, 0:52, see above).  Those were his only 2 negative plays and broke a string of 13 games without any share of a sack charge (last was Carl Lawson in week 6 of 2019).  Of his 4 misses, only 1 was a loss at the LoS and the other 3 were the result on an inability to find a block when pulling.  He had 4 blocks in level 2, delivered 1 pancake, and pulled successfully on 3 of 6 assignments.  He had a highlight combination block on Nnadi then Hitchens (Q1, 11:33) to help lead Ingram’s 11-yard run.

Scoring:  52 plays, 46 blocks, 4 missed, 1.5 sacks, 37 points (.71 per play).  That’s a low C after adjustment. 

Bozeman’s last grade below a B was in week 10 of 2019 at Cincinnati.   

Skura:  Matt had another solid game.  He shared a pressure with Tyre Phillips for his only pass rush event (Q2, 10:23).  His false start turned 3rd and 1 into 3rd and 7.  He missed 3 blocks, 2 of which were losses at the LoS (bulled by Jones, pancaked by Pennel).  He had 1 block in level 2, delivered 1 pancake, and connected on his only pull.  His highlight was a textbook cut block of Nnadi on the jet toss to Duvernay (Q1, 10:52).  Mobility questions continue, but I’m impressed that his anchor seems improved.  Those squats we saw on video this offseason may have not only helped him improve his lower-body strength but also maintain lower pad level.

Scoring: 52 plays, 48 blocks, 3 missed, 1/2 pressure, 1 false start, 44 points (.85 per play).  That’s a B after adjustment. 

Phillips:  Tyre bounced back with his best game of the season.  He was tagged for 1.5 of only 2 pressures surrendered by the offensive line.  The first was shared with Skura when Tyre was bulled by Chris Jones (Q2, 10:23).  The second came as he stumbled backward in the pocket blocking Chris Jones (Q4, 7:48).  He missed 2 blocks, both of which were losses at the LoS.  He made 6 blocks in level 2, but did not have a pancake.  He was not assigned to pull.  He drew an illegal use of hands foul on Jones (Q4, 7:42) on a play where the Chiefs DT had already beaten him for a pressure.  His highlight was a combination block on Jones then Hitchens on Jackson’s 30 yard run right (Q1, 13:33).

Scoring:  52 plays, 48 blocks, 2 missed, 1.5 pressures, 45 points (.87 per play). That’s an A after adjustment.

Brown:  Orlando’s late sack allowed was the big blemish on an otherwise good game.  He did not get out of his stance until 0.7 seconds (21 DVR clicks) past the snap (Q4, 6:19), which allowed LB Ben Niemann to breeze by him for an 8-yard sack that all but snuffed out the Ravens last hope.  Prior to that, he had not allowed any sort of pressure event and his only negative charge was a false start.  He made 1 block in level 2 and delivered 1 pancake.  I don’t score pancake blocks to an individual if there is a double team involved, but his finish to crumple Chris Jones (Q1, 13:33) was impressive despite initial help from Tyre Phillips. 

Scoring:  52 plays, 48 blocks, 3 missed, 1 sack, 1 false start, 39 points (.75 per play).  That’s a C with or without adjustment.
