The Baltimore Ravens didn’t look like the Ravens of recent years in 2021 and I think they are further exposed when the 2022 NFL season gets underway.

Baltimore is going to only go as far as Lamar Jackson can take them offensively. They have a good but not elite running game if you take Jackson out of that equation. Their receivers need to prove that they can be better than just average and they shipped off their best WR this off-season in a trade.

Personally, Jackson is one of the most overrated players in the NFL and while that is not a popular opinion, it is one that I stand by. Last year, he was exposed against the Dolphins and once his ability to run the ball is taken away, he becomes a passing QB with above-average abilities but far from a top QB. And the Ravens need someone who can carry the offense on more than his legs.

I ranked Baltimore in the top 15 because their defense is still really solid and will keep them in games but this is a team that easily could finish third in the AFC North if everything goes well for the Browns.

Overrated? Yes, I think this team could just as easily finish 4th in the North and out of the top 15 power rankings by week six.
