1. Have the Baltimore Ravens faced a good quarterback?

The Baltimore Ravens defense is elite by a metric you can imagine. The real question now is, what will happen when they step it up in class and take on some of the best quarterbacks? This mainly has to do with Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes, but if the Ravens want to win a Super Bow, at least one of those quarterbacks will be in their way. The defense looks great, but they have yet to be tested with a big-time player like that.

They got C.J. Stroud in his rookie debut, and they got him behind a bad offensive line. Then, they faced Joe Burrow with a calf injury. They saw Gardner Minshew and Dorian Thompson-Robinson before facing Kenny Pickett. Then, Ryan Tannehill got hurt. Jared Goff is the best quarterback they faced when you add that Joshua Dobbs was the quarterback today. In total, Dobbs, Minshew, Malik Willis, and DTR are the four backups the team has faced.

This is not their fault, and they are beating who they play. Still, down the stretch run, the team will see healthy Burrown, Justin Herbert, Matthew Stafford, Trevor Lawrence, then the 49ers and Dolphins offense. The Raves have to rack up these wins because the real test is coming after November 16th.
