1. The Baltimore Ravens cannot stay healthy

This is the most obvious disappointment of the year. The Ravens have not been able to stay healthy across the board, and it is killing them. At running back, J.K. Dobbins has thrown a wrench into all of their plans. They do not have a speed back and keep shuffling between Justice Hill and Kenyan Drake, but neither can get the job done.

At tackle, Patrck Mekakri had to go from filling in for the injured Ronnie Stanley against Myles Garrett to filling in for the injured Morgan Moses against TJ Watt in back-to-back weeks. It would have been nice to have some healthy starters back there.

Marlon Humphrey is finally back after missing four games. The Ravens had a rotation of Ronald Darby and Rock Ya-Sin at CB2 all season to keep them healthy, and last week, it was Darby and Humphrey in the platoon.

Marcus Williams missed time, Odafe Oweh is still out, and David Ojabo is out for the year. Maybe they will get Tyus Bowser back soon. Odell Beckham and Rashod Bateman missed recent weeks while Mark Andrews was out for week one.

It is hard to find a position where injuries have not hurt them. It is essentially just linebacker and quarterback at this point. Hopefully, that did not jynx anything.

This season would be a lot more fun if the Ravens could find a way to stay healthy.
