2. The Baltimore Ravens need to see better from Ronnie Stanley 

There is no other way to put it: Ronnie Stanley has not been good enough. Stanley gave up a sack to Jonathan Greenard in week one and then left with an ankle injury. He came back in week five but had an awful performance against Alex Highsmith.

He had one of his best games in week six and also played well in week eight, but he had a few bad penalties in week seven, and he allowed a strip sack to Boye Mafe in week nine. Stanley got hurt in week ten and missed week 11. He came back in week 12 but did not look good. 

Stanley has had four penalties in the last two games he played, including Cleveland, and Khalil Mack beat him multiple times in a prime-time spot. Overall, he has two solid games and two stints where he missed time with an injury.

The good news is that Stanley can take this time to recover. He may have needed to shake off the rust and get fully healthy in week 12, and now he can get some momentum heading into week 14. Still, it sounds like we have heard this story with Stanley before.
