Five thoughts on the Ravens’ 30-28 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field:

The Ravens were in total control most of the day They were leading by 17 points at halftime, 18 at the start of the fourth quarter and 16 with five minutes left So how the hell did they end up needing a massive final stop on a two-point conversion to avoid the possibility of a truly disastrous loss? Basically they held a clinic on how to let the opponent hang around and keep hope while down The Ravens never made the only play to put the game aside, ended with penalties on offense and gave up big plays in defense They settled for field goals instead of touchdowns on key practices So the Eagles had all the momentum and a real chance to steal a game they They didn’t have to win But the shaky performance became easier to swallow when Baltimore linebackers Matthew Judon and LJ Fort made the only play that absolutely needed to be made, stopping the two-point conversion to maintain the Le The result is a 5-1 record for the Ravens heading for their bye, which they will gladly take with a series of tough games ahead.

In the first half, the Ravens’ defense was the same, a stifling unit that nearly launched a shutout the week before The Eagles only generated a first try at the end of the second quarter, when the Ravens were well ahead Calais Campbell dominated the interior Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz could barely get a pass without being invaded But the Eagles had injured themselves with two big drops on plays that should have been made, suggesting defense dominance was not so assured Sure enough, when the Eagles stopped hurting themselves, they started making big plays in the second half A point went for a 74-yard score Wentz was still under pressure, but he used his legs to escape danger and throws big to open receivers Give him props for a brave performance, but it was a headache to watch a defense go from dominant to having no response The Eagles ended up running for nearly 200 yards and edged the Ravens despite a 13-minute lack of possession time Defensive coordinator Wink Martindale will have plenty to discuss as he reviews this one’s film

Like defense, the Ravens’ offense was strong early on It led to a touchdown on his first possession, then quickly converted a short-field turnover into a touchdown late in the first quarter- time But the rest of the game was tough, with the attack only generating one hit in 10 possessions. What was happening? Lamar Jackson was under constant pressure when he backed up and often had nowhere to run when he improvised Offensive coordinator Greg Roman got stuck with the running game, as backers Gus Edwards, JK Dobbins and Mark Ingram combined for 28 races, but they only average 28 yards per attempt At the end of the line, the Eagles’ defensive line won the day ahead But what really hurt was the penalties that stopped practice after practice, Ravens offensive line leading the way to be signaled « We’ve had way too many penalties, especially the pre-snap penalties, » said Ravens head coach John Harbaugh In the final analysis, Jackson saved the day He didn’t bring his « A » game, but still rushed for 108 yards and a touchdown (on a dazzling 37-yard dash in the middle) and passed 186 yards. and a touchdown (after dancing around the pressure with a nifty two-step) The Ravens ended up needing every ounce of what they provided

Campbell was the only member of the Ravers’ starting defensive line to dress and play Derek Wolfe was inactive due to a neck injury / concussion and Brandon Williams was placed on the Reserve / COVID-list. Saturday 19 The squad only had four active D linemen, and two were rookies Bottom line, the Ravens desperately needed a big performance from Campbell, and the veteran delivered at the right time with three sacks , four quarterback hits and four tackles for the loss He was particularly dominant at the start, so much so that the Eagles eventually started to elude plays and, unsurprisingly, moved the ball better Campbell was solid throughout his first season in Baltimore but this was his first time in full game wrecker mode. It was quite a spectacle, and remember, he’s one of the players. the oldest on the pitch each week The Ravens have plenty to do during the break, but Campbell is anything but a concern

Short Takes: As the Eagles lined up for the two-point conversion that could have tied the game late, there was no doubt the Ravens would bring a lot of pressure Judon was on Wentz in a flash; the option play was doomed to fail as soon as the quarterback hesitated a little on whether to give in or run The Ravens are 5-1 for the third time in franchise history, and they’ve been to the Super Bowl the other two times (in 2000 and 2012)… The Ravens have now won nine straight road games. by a combined score of 299-151… It was fitting that rookie James Proche II had lined up the Eagles’ last kick He looks extremely confident as a punt returner Needless to say, it made a huge difference in the end that the Eagles ‘Jake Elliott missed a 52-yard field goal attempt, his only try of the day, while the Ravens’ Justin Tucker was perfect on 46 attempts. 55 and 46 yards
