Limiting Lamar

The biggest challenge for the Bills defensively when they take on the Ravens will be containing quarterback Lamar Jackson. Jackson leads the league with 10 touchdown passes, many of which have been thrown into tight windows. Of course Jackson is well known for his running ability and elusiveness in the pocket, both of which are a nightmare for opposing defenses. The Ravens utilize a lot of option and run-pass option in their offense therefore, the Bills defenders must have good eye discipline and effectively set the edge.

Tighten Up 

The Bills safeties and linebackers will have a tough task defending Ravens tight-end Mark Andrews. Andrews leads the team in receiving with 22 catches for 245 yards and 3 touchdowns. Andrews has 14 more receptions than the next closest pass catcher, he’s clearly quarterback Lamar Jackson’s number one target.

Attacking by Land

The biggest key for the Bills offensively against the Ravens will be to establish the running game. Through the first three games quarterback Josh Allen is the teams leading rusher, that’s just not sustainable over the course of an entire season. An effective ground attack will take some pressure off of Allen and really open up the play-action passing game.
