Baltimore Ravens vs. Washington Football Team: Week 4 Q&A
The Baltimore Ravens are playing the Washington Football Team. The Ravens Flock sent me some questions about the game and here are my answers:
@RobPalmaJr. asks three questions:
- How does the Baltimore Ravens offensive line match up against the Washington defensive line?
- How well do the Ravens match up defensively against the Washington Football Team?
- Will the Ravens try to hard to make a statement after last week’s game?
The Washington Football team will be without Chase Young. That makes a great defensive line just a good one. The Ravens have straggled on the offensive line, so this is something that we have to worry about a little bit. This is also a week we have to pay attention to the injury report. There is a chance that Ronnie Stanley could miss the game with a shoulder injury. If Stanley is out, I don’t care what the game plan is, that doesn’t help Lamar Jackson. As long as the Ravens can run the ball they should have some success. If this game gets frustrating problems up front will be the cause.
Defensively you have to think the Ravens get right. Look at what they did to the Cleveland Browns did. Haskins had three interceptions. That was the same Browns defense that got picked on by Lamar Jackson. It was the same defense that gave up 30 points to a rookie Joe Burrow. Haskins couldn’t put up enough points on that defense? He’s not the truth and the Ravens defense is going to be playing angry.
I don’t think the Ravens will be trying too hard. That’s because I don’t think too much will go wrong in this game. Baltimore is a team that runs through most opponents like a buzz saw. Did things go wrong against the Chiefs? Yes, but that was just the sixth time things have gone wrong in Lamar Jackson’s tenure as the Ravens quarterback. Three of his losses were against the Chiefs, two were in the playoffs and one was a weird loss to the Browns. The big moment in a get over the hump game is really the only place you have to worry about John Harbaugh’s team. This is one of the early games on a Sunday. People who don’t like the Ravens better have NFL Redzone or NFL Sunday ticket because if this goes the way it’s supposed to it could get boring for them.
