2. The Baltimore Ravens could get healthier

Beyond the reality that the Baltimore Ravens have a heap of serious injuries is the reality that they could end up getting healthier. No, J.K. Dobbins is not coming back, but the rest of the group is not expected to be out for the season. Marcus Williams is supposed to have the most serious injury, but he was not placed on the IR.

Marlon Humphrey has not practiced, so he may not play in week three, but he certainly could be back by week four. Ronnie Stanley and Tyler Linderbaum are week-to-week, which is ominous, but it does entail them coming back this season.

The Baltimore Ravens winning this game and getting off to a 2-0 start goes a long way. The team cannot take their foot off of the gas, but it does take the need to push any of these players back into the mix-off. In a perfect world, these players get the adequate time needed to heal and are able to come back healthy with the team in good playoff standing.

If the Ravens get Humphrey back in two weeks, then over the next two months, they get Linderbaum, Stanley, and Williams back, it could lead to them peaking at the right time.
