2. Can the Baltimore Ravens offensive line hold up?

The biggest issue that the Baltimore Ravens will face in the coming weeks is their offensive line. We already highlighted that Jackson was much worse when pressure was in his face. Meanwhile, when the line gave him a clean pocket, he ripped the Texans apart.

Now, Jackson will be looking at two new offensive linemen. The good news is that Ronnie Stanley and Tyler Linderbaum should not be out for the rest of the season. The bad news is that they both suffered injuries at the same time, compounding the issues on the offensive line.

The Ravens will be looking to Patrick Mekari and Sam Mustipher to start this week. Mekari has played less than 400 total snaps at left tackle, although he looked fine in the small sample.

Mustipher has about 4,000 career snaps, but Chicago Bears fans will tell you about all of the issues he had. Both are not starting in normal circumstances for a reason. Can Lamar Jackson hold up? Will these injuries plus the Dobbins injury, cause the running game to fall apart? When will Stanley and Linderbaum return? Plenty of questions arise.
