OWINGS MILLS, Md. — It was a bounce-back game that had a little bit of everything, including a shuffled offensive line protecting the MVP.

"I felt good about it during the game. After watching the tape I probably felt even better about it," said Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh during his weekly Monday day-after-game press conference.

With All-Pro left tackle Ronnie Stanley missing Sunday’s 31-17 win at Washington with an upper-body strain, right tackle Orlando Brown shifted to Stanley’s spot. D.J. Fluker filled in at right tackle.

"Credit to them that they knew what to do," said Harbaugh. "Flipping those techniques are not easy either."

Lamar Jackson had two touchdown passes. He threw for 193 yards and completed 14-of-21 throws. He ripped off a career-long 50-yard run. It was a highlight reel touchdown that almost became the lowest of lowlights. He celebrated a bit too early.

"He'll be fine. He did get that ball up and then he saw the defensive back coming from the right and he was able to get it away real quick," said Harbaugh.

Linebacker Matthew Judon registered his first two sacks of the season.

"He stayed true to the scheme. He let it come to him a little bit more," said the head coach.

What about the most efficient passer in NFL history? Punter Sam Koch had a successful first down throw to Miles Boykin on a fake punt. Koch is now 7-for-7 passing over his career. He is the only player in league history with a perfect completion percentage with a minimum of seven passing attempts.

"Sam threw that thing before Miles had even turned around, obviously, like any good passing game would do. Sam made that happen," said Harbaugh.

As far as the team's health is concerned, Harbaugh is still hopeful for Stanley’s return to the lineup next Sunday against Cincinnati. Harbaugh also said defensive end Derek Wolfe’s elbow situation should be fine.
