2. STUD: Josh Johnson, QB, Ravens

Burrow’s stats make Johnson’s look bad, but Johnson had a surprisingly productive game for an NFL journeyman like himself.

In Johnson’s first start since 2018, he finished 28-of-40 for 304 yards, throwing two touchdowns against one interception. His chameleon-like ability to blend into any team’s offensive scheme showed on Sunday when Johnson started off with a bang under center for the Ravens.

Johnson led Baltimore to a 12-play, 75-yard touchdown drive on his first series, marking the Ravens’ first touchdown on an opening drive since Week 6.

Johnson was able to get points on the scoreboard early, but this game didn’t come down to the Ravens’ offense.

When Lamar Jackson and Tyler Huntley return, Baltimore can sleep easy knowing they have a solid third-string quarterback on the roster.

And with the Ravens’ luck, the team may need him again in the final stretch of the season.
