Positive: Zay Flowers keeps the offense afloat

Flowers is just a rookie. Well, he just is a rookie in the literal sense, because judging by his performances three games into the season you'd think he's the most seasoned of veterans in the Ravens offense.

Zay got 10 targets in Week 1 and turned those in 78 yards on nine grabs. He caught 4-of-5 passes for 62 yards in Week 2, and he once more had a solid outing on Sunday grabbing 8-of-10 targets for 48 yards. He also rushed the rock once for a couple of yards.

Of course, Flowers was never going to hit 78+ yards or whatnot weekly as he did in the opener, but so far so good for the rook.

The weather and Lamar Jackson's straight refusal to throw deep passes hurt his upside, but Flowers did all he could with the looks he got and one of the two targets he didn't catch should have been called for DPI in the overtime.

He didn't make the right decision calling for a fair catch with 2:03 left in the fourth quarter, but coach Harbs acknowledged that was an error made by the coaches on the sideline and not by Flowers.
