Ravens rookie report: Week 4 The Baltimore Antworten

Ravens are now at 3-1 after an upset win over the rival Steelers in Pittsburgh on Sunday Night Football. Once more tied for the lead in the division Hayden Hurst Jersey White , Baltimore has a lot of strengths to take credit for their strong start. The productive play from their rookie class is certainly one of them and they again played a role in helping the team towards victory against the Steelers. Let’s take a look at some of their contributions, as well as what to expect moving forward:The SparkplugPhoto by Justin K. Aller/Getty ImagesIf Lamar Jackson didn’t already have a few solid nicknames, the above one would be appropriate. His usage this season has received mixed reviews at best, but on Sunday he provided a spark in certain instances.He carried the ball four times for 17 yards, but his mere presence opened up running lanes for Alex Collins, particularly in the red zone. It appears Marty Morninwheg may be figuring out how to utilize him.The Bit PlayersCharles LeClaire-USA TODAY SportsIt was a quiet night for the skill guys, as we only saw tangible contributions from Mark Andrews and De’Lance Turner. Andrews caught two balls for 12 yards while Turner chipped in a four yard rush and a 10 yard catch.Orlando Brown Jr. was on the field in certain situations to help pass block, though it appears reports of James Hurst’s demise may have been greatly exaggerated. If he can continue to hold up in pass pro, the Ravens may not need Zeus Jr. to step up anytime soon.The Milk Carton SquadPhilip G. Pavely-USA TODAY SportsAfter exploding onto the scene in the first three weeks, Kenny Young was nowhere to be found in this one, though there are some obvious factors in play there. C.J. Mosley re-entering the lineup automatically splits his snaps in half, though it would be good to see Young continue to stuff the stat sheet going forward if they can find a way to get him onto the field a bit more.It’s also worth mentioning that Hayden Hurst came close to suiting up in this one, which is something to keep an eye on considering we’ve yet to see him. With a big game coming up in Cleveland next Sunday, it would be great to see Baltimore’s first draft pick finally get on the field next week.At the end of the day , Sunday night was as much of a team win as you’ll see for Baltimore this season, meaning no massive individual effort was needed to achieve it. This is especially true for the rookies who had a bit of a quiet night overall, but don’t discount them continuing to help out more moving forward.With an important road stretch on tap, the Ravens will need all the help they can get. More dynamic plays from Jackson, Andrews, Young, and hopefully Hurst should help see that they’re up to the task. It was D.J. Moore's turn to be a young standout for the Carolina Panthers.The Panthers' first-round draft pick from Maryland had a team-high five receptions for 90 yards and also gained 39 yards on electrifying runs on back-to-back plays, including a 28-yard dash around right end that proved to be Carolina's biggest run of the day, in a dominating 36-21 win against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.Each week it seems to be a different young player 鈥?either on offense or defense 鈥?who steps up and produces for coach Ron Rivera's team.With starting wide receiver Torrey Smith out with a knee injury, Moore took advantage of a chance to produce just as running back Christian McCaffrey, wide receiver Curtis Samuel, cornerback Donte Jackson and Nigerian-born defensive end Efe Obada have done in previous games."D.J. is such an exceptional talent and dynamic player with the ball in his hands. We have to find ways to get the ball in his hands," quarterback Cam Newton said. "From running the football to toss sweeps to chucking the ball down-field, he's ready for it."Moore Womens Lamar Jackson Jersey , who had a 51-yard TD catch earlier this season, has an opportunity to build off his big game next week against Tampa Bay, which entered the weekend allowing a league-high 328 yards passing per game."We knew they were going to be aggressive, but we knew we just had to go out there and execute the game plan," said Moore, who estimated he split reps during the week with fellow receiver Curtis Samuel. "We had a good game plan going in for third downs, and we didn't want to get backed up so we could keep attacking."Things we learned from Carolina's win over Baltimore on Sunday:KEEPING CAM CLEANTurns out this Panthers offensive line might not be too bad after all, even after losing starting offensive tackles Matt Kalil and Daryl Williams earlier this season to injuries.Newton praised his patchwork offensive line for how well they've been playing. He's been sacked only five times in the last five games."For a bunch of guys who were labeled as undesirables or misfits, they sure are doing a good job," said Newton, who wasn't sacked on Sunday and threw for two touchdowns and ran for another .FLACCO'S STRUGGLESJoe Flacco's pace for a career year took a turn at Carolina.Flacco entered the game with only four interceptions and 11 touchdown passes in seven games, but Carolina picked him off twice and Flacco threw one touchdown pass before giving way to Lamar Jackson in the fourth quarter.Flacco drove Baltimore to a 7-0 lead on the team's first possession. After that Flacco and the offense sputtered while Carolina moved the ball at will. The result: A second straight loss and Flacco's season-low 56.8 passer rating."Even that drive, it was tough," Flacco said. "They made everything tough today and they made us go the long Lamar Jackson Jersey White , hard way. . We only took a couple of little shots here and there, and weren't able to get any real chunk yardage out of anything."Baltimore has home divisional games against Pittsburgh and Cincinnati with a bye in between to figure things out."We are not in the most ideal situation possible, but we still have eight games left," Flacco said. "I feel like we have the opportunity to play really good football. We just have to make sure to keep the focus on that."HURST ARRIVESSome good news for the Ravens was that rookie first-round draft pick Hayden Hurst started to emerge. Plagued by a foot injury early in the season, Hurst came in with one catch for 7 yards. But he hauled in a 26-yard score from Jackson with 1:02 to play."Hopefully, the first of many," said Hurst, fighting for reps in a scheme that leans heavily on tight end. He's third on the depth chart among four on Baltimore's roster.Wide receiver Willie Snead IV led the team with 54 yards receiving, but got flagged for two offensive pass interference penalties on the same drive. "I'm just playing my game," Snead said. "I've always been doing that. I'm not going to change it."BOUNCING BALLChristian McCaffrey had the luck of the bounce on his side on Sunday. Ravens defensive back Eric Weddle deflected a pass near the goal line and McCaffrey leaped over a defender to catch a first-half touchdown. It was one of many balls that seemed to bounce Carolina's way. Moore had a 28-yard run after dropping a pitchout from Cam Newton when the ball bounced right back in his arms.NFC SOUTH RACEYes, it's still two months away 鈥?and much can happen 鈥?but the NFC South seems destined to come down to two head-to-head games between the Saints and the Panthers in the final three weeks of the season. The Panthers host the Saints on Dec. 17, then visit New Orleans in the season finale on Dec. 30
