2. Can the Baltimore Ravens get consistency out of their wide receivers?

We thought that the Ravens receiver may have been starting to find their groove in recent weeks. Both Odell Beckham and Rashod Bateman missed some time with injuries, but both of them have been back for a couple of weeks. They returned, and the offense looked good in London. Then, the team had their best game against the Lions. As they were healthy for three straight weeks and faced a bad Cardinals defense with Marco Wilson and Starling Thomas at cornerback, there was a thought that they could have their best game yet.

To be fair, Bateman averaged 17 yards per catch, and Odell Beckham drew a pass interference in the end zone. Still, Beckham had a poor game overall, and Bateman had just two catches. On top of that, Nelson Agholor brought nothing to the table.

Zay Flowers is good, but he is a rookie, and the Ravens cannot expect him to lead the way every week, especially as he has a potential rookie wall. Both Ravens wideouts showed flashes, but both need to show more if the Ravens want to be considered contenders for this stretch run.
