Odds Across Sportsbooks
The decision to take Tua Tagovailoa over Justin Herbert is really leaving a mark in Miami.
"My name is Brandon Staley, and I'm the Head Coach of the Los Angeles @chargers. I am a cancer survivor." #CrucialCatch pic.twitter.com/cmc1gQdAZ6
Keenan Allen did not get targeted from 4:32 in the first quarter until 14:13 in the fourth quarter. That is more than a full half without a target. Just weird.
#Chargers decide to go with RB Joshua Kelley as RB3 today. It had been Larry Rountree for five straight games. Kelley gets his second straight game.
Ekeler rushed six times for seven yards and caught four of seven targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 34-6 loss to Baltimore.
The Ravens managed to keep Ekeler and the rest of the Chargers in check, as Justin Herbert failed to reach 200 passing yards and no running back rushed for more than seven. Los Angeles' upcoming Week 7 bye will give Ekeler and company a chance to regroup, and the diminutive yet powerful running back should bounce back afterwards given his substantial role as both a rusher and a pass-catcher out of the backfield.
Jared Cook with a drop on third and 10. Would have had the first. #LACvsBAL
Two interceptions for #Chargers LB Kyzir White today. #LACvsBAL
Derwin James: "Being 4-2, we're not mad at the world. The world is not over. It's a lot of football still left to be played." #Chargers will be off next week with the bye
Tristan Vizcaino misses his fifth extra point of the season. #Chargers
#Chargers HC Brandon Staley trying to do jump-start things here, which I get. Not sure I'd be throwing to Joshua Palmer, though.
Amen Ogbongbemiga starting at LB next to Kyzir White in base package, based on pregame warmups. Also looks like Chris Harris will be playing safety in base package in place of the injured Nasir Adderley. #Chargers
#Chargers Joey Bosa with his 3.5 sack of the season. One handed. #LACvsBAL
Uchenna Nwosu with his first sack of 2021. He was due. Had been rushing really well this season. #Chargers
Amen Ogbongbemiga down after making tackle in red zone. #Chargers already thin at LB.
For the Chargers to have success against the Ravens, they must be stronger against the run.
Los Angeles currently has the worst rushing defense in the NFL, allowing 157.6 yards on the ground per game and the most yards (788).
The absence of defensive tackle Justin Jones has been crucial to that specific area. With Jones out, the Bolts have had to turn to three undrafted free agents – Joe Gaziano, Breiden Fehoko, and Forrest Merrill.
The lack of talent up front has been evident. They have been unable to generate any push, thus leading to big holes where the second and third levels have struggled with getting off blocks and making tackles in the open field
Lamar Jackson, who turns 25 years old in January, earned his 35th-career win as a starting quarterback today and surpassed Dan Marino (34) for the most wins by a quarterback prior to his 25th birthday in NFL history.
Rashod Bateman has four catches and every one of them has given Ravens' first down.
Ravens go with the option on Devonta Freeman takes the pitch and scores from 9 yards out. Ravens now lead 34-6 with 14:55 left in 4th quarter. Ravens have rushed for 164 yards and with lead, you figure they'll be in run mode the rest of the way.
Ravens active running backs vs. Chargers: Latavius Murray Devonta Freeman Le'Veon Bell
Le'Veon Bell with his first rushing TD of the season.. The Ravens are now up two scores on the Chargers.
Ben Powers lining up as starting LG in warmups. Also, Josh Bynes lining up as a starting ILB alongside Patrick Queen. Ravens DC Wink Martindale talked this week about changing up a few looks. A greater role for Bynes, who was healthy scratch last wk, could be 1 change
Le'Veon Bell is back in the end zone, scoring from 2 yards out and he's keeping that football. Had an escort from TE Mark Andrews. Ravens up 14-0 on Chargers at the 13:24 mark of the second quarter. That's an 8-play, 74-yard scoring drive that took 4:55
Ravens inactives vs. Chargers: WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) OT Ronnie Stanley (ankle) RB Ty'Son Williams S Ar'Darius Washington OLB Jaylon Ferguson DT Broderick Washington
DeShon Elliott: "We we're playing as a team, playing as brothers." Said defensive communication was much better.
Justin Tucker is now 3-for-3 from beyond 50 yards this season
Justin Houston gets the sack and now just a half sack away from 100 for his career.
Fun fact: Josh Bynes joined the #Ravens after Week 4 in 2019, when they were 2-2, and they won 12 in a row. He has played three games this year and they have won all three He has won 15 straight regular-season games that he's played in as a Raven.
Chargers go for it on 4th-and-1 from own 19. Herbert is incomplete. Don't get Chargers continually targeting Marlon Humphrey on key plays. Bozeman back in at center for Ravens.

The Baltimore Ravens are set to face the Los Angeles Chargers in what should be an exciting Week 6 matchup. Both teams boast 4-1 records and will be looking to pick up their fifth win on the 2021 season.
In order to win on Sunday, Baltimore will have to get key contributions from many players on their roster, not just their stars. Ahead of the game, the Ravens announced that they had elevated two players from their practice squad to their active roster in running back Le’Veon Bell and offensive lineman Andre Smith
The Baltimore Ravens have been dealing with plenty of injuries over the course of the 2021 season so far. However, they’ve recovered well from losing so many key contributors, earning a 4-1 record through five weeks.
Even though the team won’t be getting some of their stars back this year, Baltimore has seen others step up to contribute in very positive ways, especially on the offensive side of the ball. On Saturday, the Ravens announced that they activated two players off of injured reserve in wide receiver Rashod Bateman and offensive lineman Tyre Phillips
