Ravens vs. Raiders: Open Thread

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Baltimore Ravens Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Today is a game for the future. As we already witnessed last week against the Bengals, Lamar Jackson is the future for the Baltimore Ravens. He can make a defense break themselves down and second-guess what to do, leaving the field wide open for running lanes for either himself or the tailback. He was capable of burning Cincy with his legs all game as he finished with 119 rushing yards.

Now will be another test for the young quarterback and his team. With NFL film now covering the rookie, can he replicate his performance or adapt to new plays? Ravens fans are confident to certain he can, but today will be the first test.

Not only will Lamar be in the spotlight, but the rookies as a whole are in focus today with multiple starters out with injury. You can expect quite a list of expected performers in today’s game being rookies:

  1. Lamar Jackson
  2. Gus Edwards Jr
  3. Hayden Hurst
  4. Mark Andrews
  5. Orlando Brown Jr.
  6. Anthony Averett
  7. Kenny Young
  8. Bradley Bozeman

Whether they’re filling in or already starting, this rookie class could turn this franchise from on the cusp to in the dance. Today will be another exciting adventure for the future Ravens.
