2. The run game is a strength for Baltimore

Just like the tight ends, a good run game is a consistent thing for the Ravens. It helps to have a quarterback that is also one of the best rushers in the league. Even if Monken will have Lamar Jackson running less in the new offense, Jackson still has a gift that very few have, so he will have a ton of rushing yards.

Additionally, the running back room should be much healthier this season. JK Dobbins only played in eight games last season, and Gus Edwards only played in nine. If Baltimore can get a healthy season from both backs and Jackson, the run game can be even more dangerous, and it was already pretty good.

In 2022, the Ravens had the second-best rushing offense, running for 160 yards a game. Even if they do have a more balanced attack under Todd Monken, the run game will certainly be a strength that they can rely on. It will be used to set up the pass, close out games, and also win late in the season and in the playoffs.

No matter how much people characterize the modern NFL as a passing league, running the ball is still important, and the best teams can run the ball when they need to. Baltimore will be one of those teams.
