8. Can Justin Madubuike string together two strong games for the Baltimore Ravens?
Justin Madubuike is playing for a contract this season. Fans and teams across the league know that he is good, but the question is, how good can he be? Can he increase his upside and become a player who can create sacks?
Every year he has seen his sack total increase, and he is on pace to do the same this year. He had a sack in week one, which is good, but also had an easier matchup due to the injuries to the Texans' offensive line. Still, he needs to rack up the easy wins when they are presented to him. It is not going to be easy against the Bengals, but their interior line looked rough against the Cleveland Browns.
This unit has consistently been the downfall for the Bengals, and the Ravens have the chance to expose it with Madubuike. Madubuike will line up against both Cordell Volson and Alex Cappa. Cappa looked rusty in his return, and Volson has been the weak line to attack.
In week one you can say it was an easy matchup, but Madubuike could still leave week two with the same thought and two sacks under his belt.
