Discussing each team’s most recent game
The Ravens come into this game off of a tough and hard-fought win. QB Lamar Jackson was out because of an illness so backup QB Tyler Huntley got his first start of his NFL career. He didn’t play too bad despite throwing an interception and some incompletions. Overall, you have to be impressed by Huntley for how he played and competed until the end. He was an undrafted QB and then a couple seasons later he made his first start against the Bears who have one of the better defenses in the NFL. RB Devonta Freeman had a decent game running the ball with 16 rushes, 39 yards and a touchdown.
TE Mark Andrews was Huntley’s best receiver against the Bears with 8 receptions and 73 yards. Defensively, the Ravens top players were LB Tyus Bowser with 5 tackles, 2 sacks, 1 tackle for loss and 2 QB hits, LB Patrick Queen 7 tackles and 1 tackle for loss and DB Chris Westry with 3 tackles and 2 pass deflections. Overall, Baltimore didn’t play too well this game but they came out with the win which is what they needed. They now have to be ready to focus on Nick Chubb and the Cleveland Browns.
The Browns come into this game off of a win they barely got against the Lions. QB Baker Mayfield had a bad game with a good number of incompletions and only 176 yards with a touchdown and 2 interceptions. RB Nick Chubb had a decent game with 22 rushes and 130 yards. Defensively, Cleveland’s top players were LB Anthony Walker with 8 tackles, S John Johnson with 7 tackles and 1 tackle for loss and Ronnie Harrison Jr. with 6 tackles and one tackle for loss. The Browns will need to score more points than they did against the Lions and their defense will need to make sure they are ready to face a Ravens offense with Lamar Jackson who’s been having an MVP season, Marquise Brown who has much improved from last season and Mark Andrews who has been having one of the best seasons of his career.
Matchups to watch
Mark Andrews Vs John Johnson: Mark Andrews has been one of the leagues top TE’s this season and John Johnson hasn’t been having all that bad of a season either so it’ll be very interesting to watch who plays better in this matchup.
Lamar Jackson Vs Myles Garrett: One of the best pass rushers against one of the best QB’s in the NFL. That right there is a matchup everyone will be watching and that’s exactly what we’ll be seeing on Sunday Night in Primetime with these two stars going against each other.
Nick Chubb Vs Patrick Queen: This is one of those matchups that other people may not be watching but I know I’ll be watching this one. Chubb has been having a great season so far while Patrick Queen hasn’t had the best of a season but has played well of late. It’ll be interesting to see if Queen can build off of his performance from last week and take it into this week against one of the league’s top RB’s.
