Scouting report for Sunday's Ravens-Saints game (1 Viewer)

By Childs Walker - Contact Reporter - The Baltimore Sun

RAVENS PASSING GAME: Quarterback Joe Flacco saved his best work for third down in the Ravens’ Week 6 victory at Tennessee, leading the offense to 12 of 17 conversions. He’s cooled slightly overall, but his QBR of 60.5 would still be the third best of his career, behind 2014 and 2011. Michael Crabtree had his best game as a Raven against the Titans, and Willie Snead IV made several crucial catches on third down, continuing his rebound from a lost 2017 season in New Orleans. The Ravens have yet to establish first-round pick Hayden Hurst as a receiving threat. He has one catch in two games.

SAINTS PASSING GAME: At age 39, Drew Brees is still one of the most productive passers in the league and one of the highest rated when facing pressure. Multiple Ravens praised his quick release and keen awareness of every player on the field. Brees has completed almost 80 percent of his passes and thrown no interceptions through five games. He throws to a deep group of receivers and running backs, led by Michael Thomas (46 catches on 49 targets for 519 yards and three touchdowns) and Alvin Kamara (38 catches for 351 yards out of the backfield). Brees is protected by two excellent pass blockers in tackles Terron Armstead and Ryan Ramczyk.
