Ravens’ Opposing Wideout No. 1: Michael Thomas

In 2022, fireworks will explode as the 2019 Offensive Player of the Year butts heads with the 2019 MVP.

Baltimore face the New Orleans Saints in Week 9, by which point Michael Thomas could have put together a very impressive comeback season after missing the last two years.

Prior to his injuries, Thomas posted four consecutive 1,000-plus receiving yards seasons in NOLA and earned his stripes as one of the most elite wideouts in the league.

In a worst-case scenario, Thomas re-injures himself and sits out yet another season, but in the best-case scenario, Thomas produces numbers close to his 2018 and 2019 totals. The Saints’ wideouts gets the advantage of playing with Jameis Winston, who can throw the ball farther than a 40-year-old Drew Brees ever could, and the Ravens’ corners will have to stay on their toes.

The Saints also have young buck Chris Olave as a deep threat and former Browns’ Jarvis Landry in the slot, so Baltimore’s D could have their hands full in this high-stakes matchup.

Baltimore get a BYE after this game, so they will get a week to rest and recharge after playing against top-notch talent like Michael Thomas.
