What were the Colts-Ravens player ratings in NFL's Week 5?
Lamar Jackson had a career night in the Ravens comeback win over the Colts. He threw for 442 yards while TE Mark Andrews had nine catches for 147 yards.
It was the Baltimore Raven’s second overtime game on Monday Night Football just five weeks into the season, and it will go down as career night for Lamar Jackson. The former NFL MVP threw for 442 yards and four touchdowns in the 31-25 win over the Indianapolis Colts.
Baltimore Ravens skill players ratings:
Lamar Jackson QB: 9.5
We were so close to our first ever 10, but you can’t overlook the fumble on the one yard line. If Jackson were a mere mortal that probably would have been enough to close door on the Ravens. Jackson pocketed the mistake and went to lead Baltimore to 22 unanswered points, while setting a career high and franchise high 442 yards, and an NFL record 86% for a quarterback with a 400 yard game.
Latavius Murray RB: 2
It was a game that should have been set up for the Ravens to be run heavy. A chance to set an NFL record of 44 straight games with 100 yards rushing. Murray finished with 6 rushes for 17 yards.
Hollywood Brown WR: 9
Brown had a quiet first half like the rest of the Ravens, but exploded in the second half. Had 125 yards on 9 catches and two touchdowns including the 43 yard TD to get the ball rolling for Baltimore right before the fourth quarter.
Devin Duvernay WR: 5.5
Had 45 yards on 4 catches, and had a few decent kick returns including the one to start the overtime period which started the Ravens at their own 32.
Sammy Watkins WR: 3.5
Had his night cut short after suffering a hamstring injury in the first half. Had two catches for 35 yards before heading to the locker room, but kept giving his team all of his support on Twitter.
Mark Andrews TE: 10
Andrews had a perfect night. His two touchdowns and two two-point conversions in the fourth quarter were beyond clutch, but he did so much more than that. Was there when Jackson need him on bail out throws. Reliable hands, excellent field awareness and he finished with 11 catches for 147 yards.
Indianapolis Colts skill players ratings:
Carson Wentz QB: 8.5
Impossible to say anything bad about Wentz Monday night. He had a fantastic game, and did almost nothing wrong. He was strip sacked in the first quarter for the Colts only turnover, but aside from that he was flawless. Finished 25/35 with 402 yards and two touchdowns.
Jonathan Taylor RB: 7.5
This kid is emerging as a top tier running back behind a mediocre offensive line at best. Had 53 yards and a TD on 15 carries and added another 116 yards receiving including the 76 yard TD to start the game off. The Colts could have and probably should have used him more in the late stages of the game to wind some clock.
Marlon Mack RB: 4
Had just 5 carries, but racked up 47 yards on those carries. Yet another option for Indy late in the game to eat some clock, but he wasn’t used.
Michael Pittman Jr. WR: 6.5
Wentz spread the love on Monday night, completing passes to 10 different receivers. Pittman had the most receptions with six catches for 89 yards including a leaping 42 yard TD in which he battled off pass interference to make the catch and drag the defender into the end zone with him.
Parris Campbell WR: 5
Had a solid game, pulled down four passes for 56 yards including a long of 23 yards.
Zach Pascal WR: 4.5
Finished the night with three catches and 48 yards.
Mo Alie-Cox TE: 5.5
A solid outing from the Colts second string tight end, who out performed TE1 Jack Doyle.
Rodrigo Blankenship K: 2
It was clear he wasn’t at full strength. He was battling through a hip injury, and didn’t even come out for the Colts first FG attempt at the end of the first half, but after an offsides penalty came in and hit the FG to put the Colts up 10-3 at half. But he missed an extra point, had a FG blocked late in the fourth and missed a game winner as time expired.
