9. Will the Baltimore Ravens have to abandon the run game?

The Cleveland Browns run defense once was weak. Then, they signed Dalvin Tomlinson, Za'Darius Smith, Maurice Hurst, and Shelby Harris. All of a sudden, the run defense of the Browns has become a strength.

The Browns opened the season shutting down Joe Mixon and the Bengals, and then they beat up on Najee Harris. Neither are great, but they did the same against Derrick Henry this week. The Titans offensive line is much worse than in past years, but it is not like the Ravens offensive line comes in healthy.

Also, it is not like the Ravens come in with anyone as good as Henry, Mixon, or even Harris. So, are the Ravens going to get anything going in the run game? It is hard to think that Kenyan Drake or Melvin Gordon can be the first duo to crack this unit. Do the Ravens even try? How much of the Ravens rushing attack is reliant on Lamar Jackson? This is a tough spot for the Ravens to limp into.
