4. Will Patrick Mekari get exposed by Myles Garrett?
This will be a defining game for the career of Patrick Mekari. He has about seven games when he has played the primary snaps at left tackle. He held it down well in a must-win moment against the Cincinnati Bengals, but he came back down to earth against the Indianapolis Colts. Now, he gets his toughest challenge yet.
Against the Colts, he lost to Samson Ebukam, and that is after holding his own against Trey Hendrickson. Still, that is nothing because he is about to face Myles Garrett. Garrett has been ever better this year with Jim Schwartz as the defensive coordinator, mainly because Schwartz gets him lined up in the right matchups. However, this week, the obvious matchup is the left tackle Patrick Mekari.
If Mekari can handle this, the Ravens have to feel good about where they stand at tackle moving forward. If not, they know that they need to get Stanley back, because Mekari is just holding the fort down after all.
