2. Baltimore Ravens
Recap: The Ravens put on an absolute clinic on how to make a fundamentally sound defense feel very slow and uncomfortable all night long. The forced the Patriots to play assignment football and then when they finally got in their lanes and did their jobs, Lamar Jackson changed the game and took over.
Even if the Ravens wouldn’t have won this game, it would have been because of special teams miscues and random breakdowns rather than actually deserving to lose this game.
Outlook: Alright, the Ravens beat the kings now how good can they consistently be? At 6-2 I feel very confident in assuming that they are going to make the playoffs and potentially host a game or two, but how will they stack up against the Houston Texans, San Francisco 49ers and the L.A. Rams in the coming weeks?
Those questions will determine exactly how fast this hype train should be going, but right now it is full speed ahead with only one car in front.
