The offensive line received the lowest grade on offense with a C- and Mike saying “this is a makeshift group and the Ravens have no rhythm.”
Mike started off with the defense line by giving them a grade of B+ and saying “defensive tackle Brandon Williams was dominant up front.” Mike gave the linebackers a grade of B and said “second year inside linebacker C.J. Mosley turned in a complete game and finished as the Ravens’ leading tackler with nine.” The secondary got their highest grade in recent weeks with a grade of B saying “they kept the Chiefs in front of them and came up and made tackles after receptions.”
The special teams received a grade of A- and the coaching received a grade of C+.
