When the Baltimore Ravens beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 4 and started their 2018 season 4-1, the buzz around this team began.
Joe Flacco had instant chemistry with his three new receivers and the defense was a force to be reckoned with.
But now as the team heads into their bye week at 4-5, third in the AFC North and having lost their last three, the hype train on this squad has slowed down quite a bit.
A week of rest will hopefully serve them well — something both head coach John Harbaugh and players noted — as they try to salvage their season in Week 11 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
As we have a week to reflect, here's a look at their top players and numbers thus far.
Passing yards: QB Joe Flacco: 2,465 yards, 12 touchdowns, six interceptions, 84.15 QB rating
Rushing yards: RB Alex Collins: 393 yards, 107 carries, six touchdowns, averaging 3.67 yards-per-carry
Receiving yards: WR John Brown: 601 yards, 34 receptions, four touchdowns, averaging 17.68 yards-per-reception
Tackles: S Eric Weddle: 39 tackles and one sack
Sacks: LB Za'Darius Smith: 5.5 sacks, 15 tackles and one forced fumble
Interceptions: CB Kenny Young: One interception, 27 tackles and two sacks
