1. How long can the Baltimore Ravens backup offensive lineman hold up?

The Baltimore Ravens got two huge performances from their backup offensive lineman in week two. Sam Mustipher was not perfect, but he had a solid outing overall. Patrick Mekari continued to show that he can handle spot duty at left tackle. However, that is just the thing. These two may be able to handle a start here and there without issue. It comes down to doing it consistently every week no matter the matchup when players become real values.

There are going to be downs for Mustipher, as this was not the best game of his career, and there certainly were worse games. Mekari still has under 500 career snaps at left tackle, so while he has gotten by, there are questions about his sustainability as well. Every game they get by without this being an issue is a huge win, and they got through one this week.
