9. Can Patrick Mekari hold up against Trey Hendrickson?

This is going to be a question that may decide the entire game. The Baltimore Ravens immediately lost Ronnie Stanley for a couple of weeks. The fact that he is not on the IR yet is a good sign, but that could still happen at any time before Saturday afternoon when the team finalizes their roster moves.

Still, for this game, we will see Patrick Mekari. Mekari handled the left tackle job fine last season, but he only started four games and played just a little over 300 snaps. Hendrickson has already created a strong track record against the Ravens with four sacks in four games, including a two-sack game last season. So, the Ravens will have their hands full. Expect Patrick Ricard to line up as a tight end on the left side and help chip Hendrickson.

This will leave Morgan Moses with no help against Sam Hubbard, and all of a sudden, that could be a matchup to watch as well. Still, if Hendrickson does not get a sack, the Ravens will be in a good spot.
