Ravens’ Opposing Wideout No. 2: Ja’Marr Chase
Twice the Ravens faced the Bengals in 2021, and twice Ja’Marr Chase smoked the Ravens’ defense. Will Chase dominate again this upcoming season?
In two matchups, Chase racked up 326 receiving yards and one receiving touchdown and essentially made fools of the entire Ravens’ D. Everyone from the linebackers to the safeties were missing tackles and let Chase record roughly 25 yards per catch in the first matchup, including an 82-yard TD run.
Chase played one of his best games of his rookie year against Baltimore, and he’ll look to repeat that level of success in 2022 with the same supporting cast and a beefier offensive line.
Humphrey will get his partner-in-crime, Marcus Peters, to help lock down the backfield, and the Ravens’ defenders will also need to be wary of Chase’s teammates who can inflict just as much damage.
Seeing that this is, after all, a revenge season for Baltimore, the team would love nothing more than to shut down Chase in 2022. If anyone can do it, it’s the Ravens’ secondary.
