2. Can Lamar Jackson handle the pressure?
Lamar Jackson has not been at his best so far this season. One of the big differences in his play was his issues against pressure. It is hard to explain what is causing Jackson to struggle in this area because he has never been too bad against pressure. In fact, he has been such a playmaker when the play breaks down that any issues he has under pressure are offset.,
This season, he is more innaccurate than ever, taking more sacks than before, making less big-time throws, and making more turnover-worthy plays. This is a big issue, and the timing could not be worse. When he faces the Cleveland Browns, he will face a defense that is getting pressure more than any other defense. Garrett is on another level, and Za'Darius Smith was a great addition.
The Ravens offensive line is not good enough to withstand this defensive front, and they will not be the first to slow them down. So, Jackson is likely going to be under more pressure this week than ever before. He has been worse under pressure than ever before. Are we about to see a bad Lamar Jackson performance? Or will he rise up against adversity?
