As the Baltimore Ravens head into the bye week, it is a great chance for the team to get some rest. For some players, it will be a time to try to rebound from some poor play. While the Ravens have been dominant in recent weeks, there are a few players who still need to get right in the bye week and show that they can hang in the playoffs. 

3. Can Odafe Oweh get things turned around in the playoffs

Odafe Oweh had a four-week stretch where it looked like he was going to finish the season as one of the best rushers in the NFL. He started the season hot but suffered an injury in week two before he could really flash what he was doing. 

From weeks seven through 11, we saw the best of Odafe Oweh. Oweh had four sacks in five games. He had 23 pressures. His pass rush productivity score was 11.3, and his win rate was 21%, per PFF. This was excellent stuff. However, in the six games since then, he has had just one sack. 

Oweh has a productivity score of 7.7, and his win rate is down to 17.6%. He is still playing well, but he is not performing at nearly the same level. The Ravens played him in week 18, but he tweaked his ankle early and left the game. 

He should not have any serious issues from his ankle injury, but the Ravens cannot afford to miss out on the best of Oweh in the playoffs. They have Jadeveon Clowney and Kyle Van Noy, but it is all three together that make this group dynamic. 

What can Oweh bring in the coming weeks?
