2. The Baltimore Ravens tackles could be in big trouble 

The Baltimore Ravens starting tackles had pretty clean games in the team's win over the Los Angeles Rams. The duo is healthy and coming out of the bye week, so there is optimism that they will play better. However, that is not certain yet. Some of the success comes down to the Rams having a bad group of edge rushers. The Ravens still had both tackles sitting during points of the game to ease their playing time.

Not playing a full game and beating Michael Hoect and Byron Young does not show that you are back to playing your best. This will be tested in a big way against the Jaguars pass rush. Josh Allen is having a career-year, and former number-one overall pick Travon Walker is starting to take a step in his second NFL season as well. Overall, this is a huge step up from what they just faced with the Rams. 

The tackles have been a weak link in recent weeks. Strip sacks and turnovers from Lamar Jackson under pressure are what can often lead to the Ravens losing games. Will this matchup be too much for Ronnie Stanley and Morgan Moses? If these two are not at the top of their game, there will be issues. More than that, if they have to sub out this week, that is just enough snaps for one of these two to make a game-changing play.
