According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Ravens are expected to have three key offensive weapons on the field today against a tough Vikings defense.

Jeremy Maclin missed last week’s game against the Bears, and while his absence alone was not the reason why the Ravens lost, the offense clearly was a step worse than usual. Maclin was listed as questionable on Friday, but now is expected to take the field. Getting him back against a much tougher secondary than the Bears will be huge for Joe Flacco, and a big factor in this game.

Watson missed practice time this week, but returned to the field on Friday. He was listed as questionable heading into the weekend. According to Rapoport, however, the tight end is expected to suit up for the Ravens today.

Mike Wallace was also listed as questionable, but he too is expected to play. It seems the Ravens biggest loss in the receiving corps this week will be Breshad Perriman.

Now knowing that three impactful pieces on the offense are expected to play, the focus turns to the defense, where everyone around the Ravens feverishly refreshes Twitter for word on Brandon Williams and his possible return to the field today.
