Ravens vs Cowboys Live Updates: Score, stats, highlights, analysis

It's Week 11 of the 2016 NFL season, which means it's time for Ravens vs. Cowboys.

The Ravens (5-4) have a tall task head, as the face off with the red-hot Cowboys (8-1), winners of eight straight game. It's simple for the Ravens.

They need to score. And score. And score some more.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has been the recipient of criticism recently, and the Super Bowl champion can make a major statement with his play.

Steve Smith is looking to follow up his two-touchdown performance in Week 10 against the Browns with a big showing against the Cowboys. The Ravens will need their offensive line and run game to be stout if they are to win their third-consecutive game.

Despite the noise regarding Tony Romo returning from injury, quarterback Dak Prescott continues to prove that he and the rest of team are for real.

Prescott would be a clear-cut favorite for the Rookie of the Year award if not for his teammate Ezekiel Elliott, who is injecting his name into the NFL MVP race.The Cowboys' offensive line is still one of the league's best, and with Dez Bryant finally healthy, the Cowboys are as dangerous as ever.

The Cowboys have no problem scoring the football. That is why the Ravens will finally need to score, score and score some more.

1:10 p.m: After moving the chains through the air, Flacco's third down pass attempt to Steve Smith falls incomplete. Baltimore is 30th in the league in 3rd down conversion percentage (33.5%). 

1:07P.M: Ravens get a sack on third and long, force the Cowboys to go 3-and-out on their first drive of the game. There are worse ways to start a game.

Ravens agree to terms with first-round pick Hayden Hurst

The Ravens have their entire 2018 draft class locked up.

The team agreed to terms with first-round pick Hayden Hurst, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Hurst's rookie contract - like all first-round picks - is a four-year deal with a team option of a fifth year. According to the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the 25th overall pick is due $11.1 million. 

The 24-year old, who was a walk on at South Carolina at 21-years old after being drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2012, finished his three-year career with 100 receptions, 1,281 yards and three touchdowns.

Standing at 6-foot-3, Hurst will be a nice addition to the TE corps with Nick Boyle and third-round draft pick Mark Andrews. 

Fellow first-round pick Lamar Jackson signed his rookie contract on June 5th.

Training camp kicks off for the Ravens July 19th.

Ravens experimenting with getting Joe Flacco and Lamar Jackson on field at same time

Since drafting Lamar Jackson, the Ravens have made it clear that Joe Flacco is their starter. That doesn't mean they're not experimenting with having them both on the field at the same time, however. 

During this week's minicamp, the team has been lining Jackson up at multiple positions. 

"Gosh, I sure like him out there helping us," coach John Harbaugh said of Jackson during Tuesday's minicamp, via ESPN.com.

"If you put two quarterbacks on the field at once, what options does it create for our offense? That's what we're trying to figure out."

While at Louisville, Jackson rushed for 4,132 yards and 50 touchdowns in three seasons. That's more rushing yards than No. 2 overall pick Saquon Barkley. That unique skill set could be the creative options the Ravens are looking for. 

While at the NFL Combine, however, Jackson refused to workout at any other position than QB. 

"I have a lot of fun seeing what they come up with and what they're going to come up with next," Jackson said. "We'll see where it goes. You have to use your good players."

The Ravens are already viewing Jackson as one of those 'good players.' 

"Once he gets out of the pocket, it's like watching a young Michael Vick," LB C.J. Mosley said after minicamp practice. "It's amazing to watch. When you're defending him, you just have to act like you're tagging off -- you don't want to be on the highlight reel."

Harbaugh has alluded to the fact that the rookie will be active on game days, just exactly how they get the most out of him is what's in play.

"There's a lot of considerations that go into that," Harbaugh said of using two QBs at the once. "Everybody has an opinion. I've read a few. You want to find a way to get the most out of all your guys."

While Flacco isn't the fasted QB in the league, he has shown glimpses of running ability in the past. Figuring out how to utilize Flacco when Jackson is under center is where things will get interesting.

Interesting - as long as it works - is what Ravens fans have been searching for over the last several seasons. 

"Joe has to be able to do other things if [Jackson is] throwing the ball," Harbaugh said. "It gets the creative juices flowing for our offensive coaches, and they've worked hard on that."
