The Ravens fell to 3-2 after dropping Sunday's game to the Washington Redskins 16-10 at M&T Bank Stadium.
Here's a look at the game film to get a deeper look at what happened in the game and points you may have missed. (All of these plays were viewed using NFL Game Pass, which is available for fans to purchase.)
Timmy Jernigan Continues To Make Plays
Defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan seems to be due for at least one standout play a game. The third-year defensive tackle absolutely blew by the left guard on his way to the backfield on this play, using a swim move to come up with the tackle for loss. Jernigan has been one of Baltimore's top defenders this season, and is a big reason the Ravens rank fourth in the NFL in rushing yards allowed per game.
Alex Lewis Shows Versatility At Left Tackle
Rookie offensive lineman Alex Lewis said that kicking out to left tackle was a bit like riding a bike for him. He started at left tackle the last two seasons in college before moving inside to left guard for the first three games of his NFL career. The Ravens moved him back outside against Washington because starting left tackle Ronnie Stanley was out with a foot issue. Lewis showed he can hold his own on the edge in the NFL, particularly as a run blocker. The 315-pounder helped open running lanes for Terrance West, and the play below is a particularly impressive string of blocks. Lewis helps out left guard John Urschel at the start of the play, and then moves upfield to take the linebacker out of the play. West just followed behind Lewis and fullback Kyle Juszczyk, and ended up with a 35-yard carry.
Elvis Dumervil Delivered Biggest Hit Of Game
A key turning point in Sunday's game was C.J. Mosley's interception and then fumble out of the back of the end zone to give Washington back the football. It was a crazy string of events, and amidst that chaos you may have missed outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil absolutely lay out wide receiver Pierre Garcon with a block. Garcon was in pursuit of Mosley and had no idea the outside linebacker had peeled back from the line of scrimmage for the big hit. Dumervil de-cleated Garcon, but he also did a great job of avoiding helmet-to-helmet contact to ensure that the hit was legal.
Terrance West Can Make People Miss
Good blocking isn't the only reason the Ravens running game has come to life over the last two weeks. West has made the most of his opportunity, and he's avoiding tacklers better than the Ravens saw from Justin Forsett the first three games of the season. West left a defender looking silly after juking him in the open field on his way to a 28-yard carry.
Marshal Yanda Has Uniform Malfunction
Right guard Marshal Yanda doesn't hesitate to throw his nose right in the middle of a block, and he literally got tangled up with a Redskins defender on this 28-yard run by West. (This is another angle of the same run above by West). The right guard opened the hole for West, and then he had to figure out how to get his facemask unattached from the defensive lineman's helmet.
