7. Rashod Bateman impresses in his Ravens debut

It was a mostly impressive performance for first-round rookie Rashod Bateman in his NFL debut. Bateman finished with four catches for 29 yards with all four catches going for first downs.

He could have had a fifth too had it not gone through his hands and into the hands of Chargers linebacker Kyzir White who recorded his second interception of the day.

Still, Bateman showed in those four catches the potential he displayed at Minnesota. He’s a sharp route runner who can be a dangerous weapon on third down.

Expect to see more of Bateman in the coming weeks, especially if Sammy Watkins is forced to miss more time.

8. Devin Duvernay is still one of the best returners in the NFL

Devin Duvernay entered the game as the NFL’s leading out returner and he proved once again in Week 6 that his name should be mentioned among the best returners in the league.

Duvernay returned two kicks for 70 yards including a 47-yard return that set up an eventual Ravens touchdown. He also returned three punts for 44 yards with his longest going for 17 yards.

The speedy wideout consistently helps the Ravens win the field position battle and he proves each and every week that he’s among the more valuable players on the roster.

Duvernay is electric as they come.
