2. Tyus Bowser was the entire pass-rushing unit this game

Tyus Bowser came up big in Week 11. He recorded five tackles, two quarterback hits, and two sacks, one of which caused a turnover and another came at the end of the game to prevent Chicago’s Hail Mary attempt.

Whereas rookie Odafe Oweh struggled a bit more in his edge-rusher role, Bowser lifted up the entire unit and made the biggest impact against a tough and gritty Bears offense.

Let’s hope this game is just the beginning for Bowser.

3. Mark Andrews can once again pat himself on the back

Give a hand to Andrews for being the most reliable player in the Ravens’ receiver corps this game. Again.

Andrews recorded eight catches (on 10 targets) for 73 yards, and even with Jackson out, Huntley gave him plenty of looks that he managed to convert into key downs.

The receivers had the most to lose with Jackson’s absence, but under Huntley, they all recorded average numbers: Sammy Watkins led with 48 receiving yards, Devin Duvernay had 37, and Rashod Bateman had 29.

Andrews clearly remains the most talented and experienced pass-catcher, though, and if the Ravens want to continue winning games, they’ll need Andrews to keep up the elite production.
