5. The offensive line stepping it up:

The Ravens offensive line has been problematic at times this season. The Titans have the defensive power to make the offensive line have a rough day. The purple and black have to deal with a defensive front that has produced 13 sacks. However, the Titans rank really low in run defense. If the offensive line doesn’t run block in this game, they just can’t run block. This is a game where players like Alex Lewis and Matt Skura, have to take a step up in run blocking, or they have to get off the field.

The Ravens offensive line had it’s worst day in Cincinnati, but the performance in Cleveland wasn’t much better. The same offensive line that contained Von Miller, had a hard time doing much of anything against the Browns. Flacco only got sacked a couple times, but he was under a lot more pressure than the stats show. The Ravens became one dimensional on offense, and the Browns defense made Flacco’s day rough. The tipped passes, are an example of the offensive line getting pushed back too much.

The offensive line has been inconsistent. It’s capable, but it isn’t doing it on a regular basis. This has got to change if the Ravens want to win on a consistent basis. The offensive line problems are symbolic of the entire team. They go up and down, just like the Ravens.
