5. Is the Baltimore Ravens offensive line hanging on by a thread?

The Baltimore Ravens offensive line is not the sole reason the team lost to the Indianapolis Colts, but they were one of the catalysts to the issue. Patrick Mekari allowed a sack to Samon Ebukam, Kevin Zeitler was beaten clean by Taven Bryan for a strip, and Sam Mustipher had a bad snap that cost the team a drive.

The Ravens offensive line has some issues. Mekari and Mustipher are short-term placeholders. They can hold up here and there but are not consistent enough to last for long periods of time. That showed as they got up for the Bengals but could not string it together in a big game against the Colts.

John Simpson has come down to earth and struggled this week, and Zeitler has been a disappointment all season long. Morgan Moses has been great, besides a lapse or two against Will Anderson. Still, there are four positions with questions on the Ravens offensive line. That is not great when you consider the Browns are coming to town.
