2. How can the Baltimore Ravens handle Jeffrey Simmons?

The Baltimore Ravens may be able to run the football this weekend with the absence of Teair Tart. However, they also will struggle to pass the football at times because of the other defensive tackle on the Titans roster. Jeffrey Simmons is one of the best pass rushers in the NFL at coming from the defensive takcle position.

This week, he gets a Ravens unit that will be healthy but has questions. As we noted, they could be better as a run-blocking group, but they also have their issues in pass protection. Tyler Linderbaum is undersized, and his biggest issue is the massive human beings like Simmons.

Then, on either side of him brings questions. John Simpson has not been good this season, and Kevin Zeitler is looking like he may have hit the age where things are slowing down for him. Can he shake it off and step up against the Titans, or will Simmons find wins against all three and make Lamar Jackson flush the pocket?
