3. Ryan Jensen:
The purple and black have been worrying about their situation at the center position. Ryan Jensen got the start at center and he played really strong football. Ryan Mallet is a pretty stationary quarterback and the fact that he wasn’t on the run too much, is an impressive thing for this offensive line. Remember, the Ravens were playing without Alex Lewis and Marshall Yanda. This means Jensen had a lot of helping to do with really inexperienced players on both sides of him.

Jensen did exactly what the Ravens needed him to do. He eased concerns about the middle of the offensive line. He showed that he could handle himself up front. Jensen showed a strength and sturdiness that Jeremy Zuttah lacked last season. Center has been one of the Ravens most worrisome positions. Now, there is reason to be at least a little optimistic.
Jensen’s competition, Matt Skura, played guard. With the quality play of Jensen, it is hard to imagine Skura gained any ground. It’s only one game in, but the Ravens may have something figured out at center.
