A general view of the Miami Dolphins stadium

Ravens vs. Dolphins, 9/8/19 NFL Week 1 Betting Predictions & Odds

Lost in the Ravens lopsided win was yet another injury to starting cornerback Jimmy Smith, who injured his right knee when linebacker Patrick Onwuasor rolled into him trying to make a tackle.

Jackson had the game of his career in Miami.

The Colts strongly believe that retired star quarterback Andrew Luck has played his last game and do not anticipate the 29-year-old returning to the playing field, though there is certain to be speculation about the Pro Bowler's future for years to come.

Brown hauled in receptions on four of his five targets (80 percent), a rate which ranked in the top half of the league, and NextGen Stats show his targets averaged 18.4 air yards, the seventh-most in the NFL on Sunday.

The Ravens scored touchdowns on their first four possessions, and when they were finally forced to punt, Jakeem Grant fumbled the kick.

For those wondering whether Jackson could become an effective passer in the league, he led the Ravens to their largest margin of victory with his arm instead of his legs, completing 17 of 20 passes for 324 yards and five touchdowns in three quarters of work.

Aside from a few individual standouts, the entire offense looked sharp all day.

The new safety said he was brought to Baltimore to force turnovers. The defense forced another turnover late, as Marlon Humphrey intercepted Josh Rosen. The Dolphins rushed for just 21 yards as a team, too.

Is it too early to say the Ravens run of first-round flops at wide receiver is over? The Ravens this offseason emphasized speed, and coach John Harbaugh a few times referenced the need for quick-strike, home-run ability on offense. They broke franchise marks for points and total yards with 643. Ingram led the way with 107 yards.

Jackson then threw touchdown passes of 33 yards to Willie Snead, 5 yards to Miles Boykin and 1 yard to fullback Patrick Ricard.

"Not bad for a running back", he said of his performance.
