1. The Baltimore Ravens offensive line did not sit much 

The Baltimore Ravens at Kevin Zeitler due to an injury. The other four linemen played their fair share of snaps this week. John Simpson was always going to play a full snap share. Tyler Linderbaum wound up playing about 39% of the snaps, which is a small surprise. It probably helps his long-term value to have the start under his belt, and if he was going to start, why not play a few drives?

Still, the surprise was both tackles were getting decent work. Ronnie Stanley played about 39%, and Morgan Moses was at about 51% of the snaps. Both of them have been platooning with Patrick Mekari and Daniel Faalele, respectively, so in some ways, this was just a continuation of what has gone on. At the same time, both were a bit down in snaps, and Faalele and Mekari played more than the last three weeks.

Stanley and Moses got to rest and got out of the game healthy. They also got to play and avoid the rust after a bye week coming. This probably was the best outcome.
