Can the Jets contain Baltimore’s limited finishes?
Even immediately after Mark Andrews still left Sunday’s match with a knee injuries, the Ravens’ limited finishes held rolling, with Hayden Hurst and Nick Boyle each individual catching a landing move. Baltimore’s dynamic limited conclusion trio has combined for 107 catches, one,284 yards and 11 touchdowns this period. With or devoid of Andrews who is questionable for the sport, the Jets will be challenging-pressed to command Baltimore’s restricted ends.
Will the Ravens defense be as well a great deal for Jets quarterback Sam Darnold?
The Jets rank 30th in passing offense and experience a Ravens team that is peaking defensively. Baltimore blitzes far more than any workforce in the NFL and Darnold will be struggling with a Ravens’ secondary that is the league’s deepest.

Ravens operate protection vs. Jets managing back Le’Veon Bell
This has been a disappointing season for Bell, who hasn’t rushed for extra than 70 yards in a game. On the other hand, the Ravens know what Bell can do from his times with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Two backs have experienced success versus Baltimore the past two months – Raheem Mostert of the 49ers (146 yards) and Devin Singletary of the Charges (89 yards). Bell has needed additional carries and may perhaps get his desire versus Baltimore.
