Schisler noted that third-year linebackers Tim Williams and Tyus Bowser “both looked good coming off the edge.” He added: “Chris Wormley was impressive as well with a tackle in the backfield after dominating the offensive lineman in front of him. Jaylon Ferguson had some good moments in the second half. He didn’t have a sack but he was the reason Pat Ricard got one.”
Inside linebacker Patrick Onwuasor, who has the daunting task of replacing C.J. Mosley, got off to a good start.
“Onwuasor was charged with leading the Ravens defense and setting the tone, which he did immediately,” Stevens wrote. “Onwuasor came out with serious intensity, something that can be infectious, especially among the younger players. While he didn’t play very long, he made Jaguars wide receiver DJ Chark regret trying to bring a short catch inside, cracking him so hard it echoed throughout the stadium.”
