Week 14: at Buffalo Bills
FBG says: Good matchup. The Baltimore Ravens top the charts in virtually every rushing metric available through 12 games this season, leading the league in both measures of volume and efficiency, thanks to their diverse rushing attack. Lamar Jackson is perhaps the most prolific rushing quarterback of all time, and in the offense that offensive coordinator Greg Roman has designed, his rushing talents are maximized. Jackson has eclipsed 60 rushing yards in 10 out of 12 games this season, including at least 70 rushing yards in 8 straight games. In the backfield, Mark Ingram leads the way with about 13 carries per game while playing about 50-percent of the team's offensive snaps. Baltimore rotates personnel on and off of the field at all offensive skill positions, limiting Ingram's weekly production, but he is nearing in on a 1,000-yard season, as he averages nearly 70 rushing yards per game. The Ravens' offensive line is one of the best in the league, fostering an elite rushing environment for any and every player to carry the ball for the team. Buffalo's run defense has rarely been tested, defending the 8th-fewest rushing attempts in the NFL. However, their efficiency numbers are less-than-stellar, allowing 4.5 yards per carry, good for the 21st-best mark in the league, while allowing the 16th-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. Since the Bills have played an exceptionally easy schedule and played with a lead for the majority of the season, opposing rushing attacks have seldom pushed the limits of Buffalo's run defense in 2019. The Bills' defensive personnel resembles merely an average run defense, aside from their pair of elite run-stopping safeties. Throughout the front-seven, Buffalo fields very few top-end run-defenders. Perhaps more important than the lack of elite talent is the lack of especially poor run-defenders throughout the front-seven, leaving no glaring weakness within the unit. Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer, Buffalo's starting safety duo, both have a nose for the football in run support. Hyde and Poyer grade as the team's top two run-stoppers, helping to prevent chunk plays on the ground throughout the first 12 games of the 2019 season. The Bills' defense will have its hands full in Week 14 against Baltimore's top-ranked run defense that has seemingly shredded every defense in their path thus far this season. Expect Baltimore to continue to move the ball down the field via their top-ranked rushing attack this weekend in a matchup between two likely playoff teams.

The 49ers also did excellent job of matching up with Ingram in the passing game.

2019 Week 10 vs CIN (9 / 34 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The Ravens opened the game with a heavy dose of Ingram but the flow of the game resulted in Ingram not getting much work throughout the game. The Ravens passing attack was so effective it did not allow for long methodical drives where Ingram could accumulate yards and carries. The Bengals also conceded two defensive scores limiting the Ravens time of possession. The Ravens took what the defense gave them against the Bengals and expect more of the same going forward.

2019 Week 9 vs NE (15 / 115 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 29 / 0 rec)

2019 Week 7 vs SEA (12 / 46 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Mark Ingram struggled to find room to run against the Seahawks. Ingram had his moments but has not found the same running lanes inside that he found earlier in the season. Teams seem intent on taking away the big plays from Ingram and forcing Jackson to beat them on the edge or with his arm. Ingram is still running hard and playing well. Ingram looks quick and is still fighting through contact but he is not being allowed to build a head of steam as he used to. Despite this Ingram still averaged nearly 4 yards per carry and should be a key part of the Ravens offense going forward especially in goal line or short yardage situations.
2019 Week 6 vs CIN (13 / 52 / 1 rush, 3 / 2 / 22 / 0 rec)
Mark Ingram has struggled to find room to run the last few weeks. Teams seem intent on not letting Ingram run inside and seem to want to make Jackson beat them with his legs or arm. As a result the Jackson and the Ravens have found more success running on the edges than inside where Ingram has done most of his damage. The consistent 7 or 8 yard gains that were there for Ingram haven't been there in recent weeks. However, Ingram remains the Ravens lead back and has seen more involvement in the passing game recently. Ingram also is still in charge of goal line duties. Ingram caught a screen pass and made a nice move to pick up 11 yards. Ingram ran off right guard for a 1 yard touchdown. On 3rd and short Ingram ran a shallow crossing route and picked up 11 yards.

Ingram was frequently met at or behind the line of scrimmage and was forced to run through contact instead of running lanes.

Ingram followed a nice block from a pulling Bradley Bozeman and found 14 yards on his first carry. Ingram followed a surge from the left side of Baltimore's offensive line and fought though contact to score a 4 yard rushing touchdown.

2019 Week 2 vs ARI (13 / 47 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 30 / 0 rec)
Mark Ingram found limited success running the ball. The Cardinals defensive ends consistently collapsed in in an effort to slow the Ravens rushing attack.
