Bowser put together an impressive 2020 season as the Baltimore edge defender played in all 16 regular season games including making two starts. The 25-year-old finished the regular season having intercepted three passes, accounting for 22 solo tackles, 11 assists, and adding two sacks to a statline which earned him his second-highest career Pro Football Focus grade of 70.2.

However, despite Baltimore beating the Tennessee Titans in the wild card round before losing to the Buffalo Bills in the divisional round, Bowser struggled in those two playoff games. Bowser produced just three solo tackles and one pass deflection as he earned a 50.0 PFF grade.

In 2019, Bowser had perhaps his best all-around season as he played in all 16 regular season games. Bowser racked up 20 solo tackles, five sacks, one forced fumble, and two pass deflections on his way to earning a career-high 70.8 PFF grade. However, Bowser again struggled in Baltimore’s divisional round playoff loss playing in just 17% of the team’s defensive snaps and recording a pass deflection which resulted in a 63.0 PFF grade.

As a second-year player in 2018, Bowser had an average season with the Ravens as he played in 15 regular season games in which he had just one solo tackle along with one sack despite earning a 63.8 PFF grade. His lackluster season carried over into Baltimore’s wild card playoff loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. Bowser played in just 22% of the team’s defensive snaps and recorded zeroes across his statline which earned him a lowly PFF grade of 46.1. As a rookie second round pick from Houston in 2017, the 6-foot-3, 242-pound defender appeared in all 16 regular season games for the Ravens. Bowser notably recorded five solo tackles, three sacks, and one interception on his way to earning a 59.6 PFF grade.
