2. Morgan Moses has brought quality play for the Baltimore Ravens

Morgan Moses has been as good as you can ask. He slipped up in week four and left the game with an injury; then he missed week five. However, after the Browns game, there was a question of whether his season was over or if he would go to the IR. Morgan Moses wound up missing just one game. He came back and had one of his best games against the Tennessee Titans.

Aside from week four against the Browns, Moses has allowed three pressures in four games. That is excellent. He has not had it too easy, either. Arden Key, Denico Autry, Kwity Paye, Sam Hubbard, and Will Anderson are the primary names that he has gone against. He has stonewalled them all.

What may be more impressive is seeing what happened in the games that Moses did not play. The drop to Daniel Faalele and Patrick Mekari from Moses appeared to be worse than the drop from Ronnie Stanley to Morgan Moses. Because of his age, and because he is not a long-time Raven or a multiple-time Pro Bowler he does not get talked about like the best lineman on the roster, but right now you can easily make the case. That is the definition of an unheralded player.
