2. Is Kevin Zeitler looking washed up for the Baltimore Ravens?

Kevin Zeitler entered the season hoping to get a contract extension. However, when you saw the age of Zeitler, along with the salary cap issues that the Ravens will face down the road, it was hard to see anything getting done.

Through five weeks, the Ravens look pretty sharp by letting this play out and not signing Zeitler before the season. He has not looked like his old self. Zeitler has struggled from week one on when he was one of the worst linemen in week one.

An ugly loss against Taven Bryan led to a turnover in the loss to the Indianapolis Colts. He probably played his best game against Pittsburgh on Sunday, but that is not saying much based on the way he has played this season.

It looks like age is catching up to him, and this will be the last year that the Baltimore Ravens can trust him. Can he turn it around and at least give them reasons to trust him going forward this year?
