Baltimore Sun Sunday - - RAVENS - By Childs Walker

Tom Brady re­mains an ef­fi­cient passer in his 20th NFL sea­son, with a 64.7% com­ple­tion rate and 13 TDs. De­spite his lack of mo­bil­ity at age 42, Brady still takes rel­a­tively few sacks be­cause he gets rid of the ball quickly. But this has not been a vin­tage New Eng­land aerial of­fense. The Pa­tri­ots rank seventh in pass­ing and 16th in yards per at­tempt. They traded for Mo­hamed Sanu to bol­ster a re­ceiv­ing corps that has suf­fered be­cause of failed dal­liances with An­to­nio Brown and Josh Gor­don.

Quar­ter­back Lamar Jack­son com­pleted nine of 20 passes for 143 yards in the Ravens’ Week 7 road vic­tory over the Sea­hawks but was un­der­mined by a suc­ces­sion of drops. His most re­li­able re­ceiver, tight end Mark An­drews, was the chief cul­prit, catch­ing just two passes on eight tar­gets. Rookie wide re­ceiver Mar­quise Brown, the team’s top deep threat with a per­catch av­er­age of 15.5 yards, is ex­pected back from an an­kle in­jury against the Pa­tri­ots
