Scores in debut
Williams rushed nine times for 65 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 33-27 overtime loss to the Raiders. He also caught three of four targets for 29 yards.
Williams started at tailback in his first career game after the slew of devastating injuries recently endured by the Ravens' backfield. To his credit, the undrafted product got the ball rolling with a 21-yard catch on Baltimore's second drive, which he actually capped with a 35-yard touchdown run on a fourth-and-one play later on. In doing so, Williams showed nice burst up the middle and finished with a rather commendable stat line overall, factoring in both the running and passing games. However, despite signing mere days ago, veteran Latavius Murray was also immediately incorporated into the offense, and he topped Williams with 10 carries, gaining 28 yards and a scoring once himself. Although the Ravens will certainly be pleased by Williams' performance, especially on such short notice, it'll be interesting to see whether they stick with him as their starter in the upcoming weeks or lean more on the veteran options they've brought aboard lately, namely Murray and current practice-squad members Le'Veon Bell and Devonta Freeman. In the end, it could prove to be a committee approach, which includes star quarterback Lamar Jackson running as well, but Williams at least helped his momentum with a solid showing Monday.
