4. The Ravens still have an issue with tackling

Tackling has been a huge issue for the Ravens in the first two games of the season. They’ve been among the league’s worst in most missed tackles which has resulted in numerous big plays for the opposing team.

You could make the case that those missed tackles cost them the game against the Raiders. Although they beat the Chiefs, this was a glaring issue in that game.

The Chiefs scored multiple long touchdowns because of the Ravens’ inability to tackle. On the Travis Kelce play, he broke four tackles on his way to the endzone. That is simply unacceptable for any defense.

If the Ravens don’t fix this issue, it could cost them more games in the future. It looks like the AFC North race could be tight between them, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Cleveland Browns.
