QB Lamar Jackson played a season-high 5 thrown TDs. He was going for 15/23 with 212 air yards. Lamar Jackson was the ground master, taking charge of 8 carries across 86 yards. Seth Roberts was the ace receiver with 3 receptions for 66 yards.
The Ravens trusted on the rush attack. They rushed for 34 out of 59 plays. The rush-centric plan of attack worked well for them, inspiring the whole team to focus on relentless aggression. The team initiated 23 first downs. Even though they were on an offensive high, the team dedicated effort to throw defense. They forced the enemy to play with only a 56% throw completion rate. The defense wasn’t as solid against the rush though, with the enemy pumping in 24 rush attacks.
The Ravens are an offensive powerhouse. When they explode, even the top teams have to do a second take. As long as they’re uncontested on the rush, it’s a sure win for the Ravens.

The Browns tried to measure up against the Arizona Cardinals. They were found wanting, however, and had to bow down with a 38-24 endgame score. QB Baker Mayfield still did his best with 30/43 and 247 air yards. He connected 2 thrown TDs and an interception. RB Nick Chubb was the rush master, forcing through 17 carries for 127 yards. He managed to score a rushing TD. Odell Beckham Jr. was the foremost receiver, catching the ball 8 times to gain 66 yards.
The Browns tried to stay afloat by focusing on offense. They initiated 25 first downs. They also rushed for 23 out of 67 plays. It was a disastrous move, however, as the opponent took advantage of their missing defense to slip in quick points. The Browns didn’t have much of a defensive line going on. They allowed a 76% throw completion rate. They also conceded 35 rush attacks which ultimately carved up their territory.
The Browns should know how to refocus their efforts. They should observe other teams who can balance both offense and defense. There are also other teams who can swing focus between the two. The Browns have a long way to go with regards to battlefield strategy.
