2. Will the Baltimore Ravens continue to rotate offensive tackles?
The Baltimore Ravens have had a plan to keep their offensive tackles healthy coming out of the bye week. Both went into the bye week with games missed and their play declining. So, the team has started to rotate them in and out of games to keep them fresh for the time being.
Ronnie Stanley played 80.6% of the snaps in the first game out of the bye week, and that dropped to 68.6% against the Jaguars. Then, Morgan Moses went from 88.9% of the snaps in his first game out of the bye week to 51.4% against the Jaguars.
So, the question is whether or not this will continue against the 49ers. The 49ers' pass rush is a different beast than most teams, especially with Chase Young being added to the already harmful Nick Bosa.
So, there are two arguments. First, the Ravens tacklers could struggle to play a full game, and the rotation should continue. Or, the Ravens' backups may not be ready for this, and the team got those two ready in the last two weeks to play a full game this week. At some point, the Ravens have to let these two play. Will it be against the league-best pass rush, or do they see this as a good time for Daniel Faalele and Patrick Mekari to get some work?
