3. Daniel Thomas

You won't hear about Daniel Thomas often but that's because he's at the bottom of the depth chart, behind Andre Wingard, Rayshawn Jenkins, and Andre Cisco. The last time Thomas, a fifth-round pick, started a game was in 2021, and he hasn't gotten much playing time on defense the past two years. However, he's carved a niche as a specialist and his gunner skills were on full display against the Ravens.

If that wasn't enough Thomas deserves an award, whichever you want, for wearing the best pregame gear in the whole NFL.

2. Rayshawn Jenkins

Daniel Thomas isn't the only safety who shined against Baltimore. Although the defense gave up 23 points, they did a decent job of limiting Lamar Jackson. Among those players who had a role in containing the 2019 MVP was Rayshan Jenkins, who sacked him and picked him off.

Jenkins has been underwhelming at times this season, but there's no doubt he showed out against the Ravens and gave the Jags a fighting chance.

1. Travon Walker

Josh Allen had a monster pass rush win rate of 40.9 percent and eight total pressures Sunday Night. However, fellow outside linebacker Travon Walker is coming on his own, posting six total pressures and one sack. Moreover, Walker has progressively turned into a force against the run.

One of the reasons the Ravens offense couldn't frequently take off was Walker sealing the edge. While he's yet to reach his ceiling, he's making strides every week. He's now got six sacks for the season with three games to go.
