The Baltimore Ravens improved to 9-5 in the 2020 NFL regular season after a comprehensive 40-14 victory over the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Baltimore has now won three games in a row as they continue to push for a Wild Card berth.

The Ravens were not at full strength for this one, with a number of key players ruled inactive just before kickoff. But the players that were left were more than a match for the Jaguars. With Baltimore leading 26-0 at halftime, this was never really a contest.

Let’s dive into the Ravens’ offensive and defensive snap counts from Week 15.

The Ravens were once again unable to get a full quota of snaps from their entire offensive line. Orlando Brown, Bradley Bozeman, Patrick Mekari, and Ben Powers played all 66 snaps, but the other spot on the line was filled by a combination of D.J. Fluker (57), Tyre Phillips (9), and Matt Skura (11). An efficient performance from Lamar Jackson saw him earn a few snaps off late in the game. Jackson completed 77.2% of his passes for 243 yards and three touchdowns while also rushing for a score for the third game in a row. Jackson only played 55 snaps with rookie Tyler Huntley coming for the remaining 11 in his first regular-season action. J.K. Dobbins was once again the clubhouse leader in terms of snaps played at the running back spot. The rookie played 35 snaps compared to Gus Edwards' 27. Dobbins also out-carried Edwards 14-9, finishing with 64 rushing yards and a score. Edwards chipped in with 42 yards. Marquise Brown led all the wide receivers with 52 snaps played, a share of 79%. Brown saw a team-leading seven targets which resulted in a season-high six grabs for 98 yards. Willie Snead saw the second most action as he appeared on 43 snaps, while Miles Boykin was in for 35. The pair combined for three targets, which led to one catch for four yards and a touchdown caught by Boykin. Dez Bryant played just 18 snaps but saw three targets. He caught one of them for his first NFL touchdown since 2017, a feat he dedicated to his daughter. Here’s the full snap count for the offense:

Ravens defensive snap counts vs. Jaguars

Marcus Peters was absent for the Ravens on Sunday, but the starting defensive backfield in his stead all played every one of Baltimore's 58 defensive snaps. Marlon Humphrey led the team with seven combined tackles. Patrick Queen led the rest of the team in snaps played with 47, a share of 81%. He made a real nuisance of himself on these opportunities too. He finished with six combined tackles, a sack, two quarterback hits, and three tackles for loss. Chris Board played the second-most snaps among linebackers, appearing for 36 plays. L.J. Fort played just 18, while rookie Malik Harrison was again barely used. He played just eight snaps. This was his fourth consecutive game with fewer than 20 defensive snaps. Yannick Ngakoue played 76% of the Ravens snaps on Sunday, his highest share since joining from the Vikings. Like Queen, Ngakoue was a menace for large parts of the game. The former Jaguar had 2.0 sacks, a quarterback hit, a tackle for loss, and a forced fumble. Derek Wolfe played 35 out of the 58 defensive plays and also chipped in with a sack, a hit, and a TFL. In the absence of Calais Campbell, rookie Broderick Washington played on 15 snaps, his first action since Week 12. Tyus Bowser out-snapped fellow outside linebacker Matthew Judon 34-28. Bowser finished with five combined tackles while Judon had a sack and two quarterback hits. Pernell McPhee's 16 snaps saw him produce two combined tackles.
