4. Ravens offensive line issues strike again!

Baltimore’s offensive line suffered this game and allowed Huntley to get sacked a whopping six times (Bears’ Robert Quinn alone nabbed a career-high 3.5 sacks.)

The Ravens were temporarily aided by Patrick Mekari’s return to the trenches, but even he didn’t have his best game.

The Bears were notably missing Khalil Mack, but they still dominated a plagued Ravens side.

The offensive line failed to keep Huntley upright this game, but hopefully once Lamar Jackson returns, they can protect the QB better.

5. The secondary had a game to forget

Missed tackles, poor coverage — this game had every defensive gaffe you could think of.

In the third quarter, it was Ravens players falling over themselves while trying to bring down Bears receiver Darnell Mooney, who leaped ahead for a 60-yard touchdown reception.

In the fourth quarter, it was Chris Westry losing his man and letting Marquise Goodwin burn past him for a go-ahead touchdown.

Westry started in place of the injured Anthony Averett, and his lack of experience was on full display in this game.

Injuries have decimated the Ravens’ secondary, as they have done to other units, but the gaps in the defensive backfield, in particular, let Chicago make this into a much closer game than it needed to be.
