2. The Baltimore Ravens have great depth

One of the reasons the Baltimore Ravens have been able to withstand this slew of injuries is their depth. Look no further than cornerback. They have had to piece it together, with Rock Ya-Sin splitting time with Ronald Darby, which may be the best for both of them. More than that, Brandon Stephens has stepped up as their top starter on the outside.

They have had Ar'Darius Washington, Kyle Hamtilon, and now Arthur Maulet in the slot. All three have made plays in there. Daryl Worley has been a big influence at safety before his injury, and Geno Stone has made the loss of Marcus Williams bearable.

With David Ojabo and Odafe Oweh out, the Ravens have had key contributions from veterans like Jadeveon Clowney, The latest addition of Kyle Van Noy should help as well.

Then on offense, Patrick Mekari was not great against Myles Garrett, but you cannot blame him for that one. He has held things down beyond that. Sam Mustipher was able to hold things down for two games, and now Tyler Linderbaum is back.

The good news is that other names will be back soon as well. Marlon Humphrey and Marcus Williams have chances to get back into the mix soon, and Ronnie Stanley is practicing. Still, the depth of this roster can get them by when they need them, and that is a comforting feeling.
