@RobFuseTheMan asks: How many ankles will be broken in the season opener?
Answer: Literal broken ankles, hopefully none. Figurative broken ankles will be there by the handful. Look at the offensive talent just on the Ravens. Nobody can really keep track of Lamar Jackson. Mark Ingram has some shake and bake and J.K. Dobbins is fast. Then you have Marquise Brown who can make defenders look silly. So for Cleveland, it’s going to be a challenge. They have some athletes that can make you miss as well so I’m going to say a lot.
Ebony Bird contributor Jake Lippman asks: How much will rookies play and impact the game?
Answer: Well Patrick Queen is going to be the starting middle linebacker, J.K. Dobbins is going to get some action and Tyre Phillips getting a surprise start may still be a possibility. I’m going to go with a good bit. Queen is an every down linebacker so that’s getting the rookie snap count up. I do think we see Proche make an impact on special teams and Devin Duvernay will work into the offense a handful of plays.

@NicDaruler31 asks: How many touchdowns does Lamar Jackson score this week?
Answer: Last season Jackson gave us five touchdowns to start the season, all with his arm. I think he has four touchdowns in this game. Three in the air, one on the ground. In 2018, Jackson scored two rushing touchdowns. In the two games of 2019, Jackson scored a total of six passing touchdowns. He always shows up against the Browns, even in his limited development rookie stage. Three passing touchdowns seems to be his going rate against the Browns now. Give me one on the ground too, just for fun.
@KTimothy_10 asks: Out of the four running backs, who has the first touchdown?
Answer: Give me Mark Ingram. It could easily be any of them but my logic is that the starting running back probably has the first crack at it. Ingram with fresh legs on the first drive has as good a chance as any of the Ravens to score.
