Baltimore Ravens right guard:
Kevin Zeitler: 266 snaps
Primary matchup: Sheldon Rankins, BJ Hill, DeForest Buckner, Grover Stewart, Taven Bryan, Dalvin Tomlinson, Maurice Hurst
Kevin Zeitler had been off to a disastrous start to his 2023 season. He struggled in week one against Sheldon Rankins and was the worst offensive lineman of the starting five. He was not much better in week two and struggled to get push against B.J. Hill. Rankins and Hill have talent but are not the names you want to see Zeitler have issues with.
Things got worse when Taven Bryan beat him clean for a sack that ended in a turnover. Zeitler played a decent game overall when you factor in that one big mistake, but the rest of his play may have been a turning point.
Zeitler was not quite elite, but his best game of the season came against the Cleveland Browns. This was key because Dalvin Tomlinson had been having a strong year, and he was stonewalled consistently by Zeitler. With Myles Garrett in your face every snap, the Ravens needed stability elsewhere, and it was huge that Zeitler could provide that.
Kevin Zeitler Grade: D+
