At 3-8, the Denver Broncos season is over. The team was just dominated by the… checks notes… Carolina… squints… Panthers, 23-10.
The Ravens are in the thick of a playoff race at 7-4. A chance to get a win against an inferior opponent has to be cashed in. Denver is exactly that, an inferior opponent.
The Bronco offense that everyone has been expecting and waiting for all season just isn’t going to get here. The players are still there, but the offense — and the playcalling — has not been. Klint Kubiak is Nathaniel Hackett, Jr., so changing from one to the other has not helped. Maybe only this situation rivals Matt Canada and Pittsburgh play calls.
Russell Wilson has been dreadful. He has three fewer touchdowns than Carson Wentz does. Wentz hasn’t played since Week 6.
The defense that was playing well has shut down. The team quit.
Baltimore needs this game, and it is close to a lock to win.
Denver has not had a 100-yard rusher all season. It has not had a 100-yard receiver in 10 games. The Baltimore defense is going to swallow up that kind of effort with ease. Raven opponents have been on the grind all year, and finding room in the secondary has only gotten harder with the recent additions to the front seven, making release times speed up.
Lamar Jackson may have a full complement of weapons this week as JK Dobbins may be rejoining Gus Edwards in the backfield. Dobbins is active and could be back in as the RB1, but it will add another weapon to the offense.
