Ravens snap count vs. Colts: Breakdown, observations from Week 3

The Ravens were overwhelming favorites, but questionable decision-making and costly turnovers resulted in a 22-19 loss to the Colts at M&T Bank Stadium.

Gardner Minshew was 27-44 passing, for 227 yards and one passing touchdown in relief of Anthony Richardson, who missed the game with a concussion.

Baltimore had multiple chances to win the game before overtime and had legendary kicker Justin Tucker fall just short on a potential game-winning 61-yard field goal attempt at the end of regulation.

The Ravens offense stalled in the overtime period, gaining just 11 yards on two conservative overtime possessions, and went for it on fourth-down in their territory with more than enough time on the clock.

Baltimore turned the ball over on downs after a non-pass interference call on rookie Zay Flowers on fourth-and-3 with 3:25 to go.

Colts kicker Matt Gay outplayed Justin Tucker, setting an NFL record with four field goals of 50-plus yards, including the 53-yard game-winner.

With the Ravens set to start preparation on the Browns, here’s Sunday’s snap count and playing time percentage.
