2. Ravens have not seen a runner like Justin Fields

Okay, they see one all the time in Lamar Jackson. However, it is not like they practice full speed during the season, and beyond their own quarterback, they have not faced a run of mobile quarterbacks.

Derek Carr, Patrick Mahomes, Jared Goff, Teddy Bridgewater, Carson Wentz, Justin Herbert, Joe Burrow, Kirk Cousins, and Jacoby Brissett are the quarterbacks they have faced so far. To start, it is worth noting this is the group that has them 30th in explosive passes allowed.

At the same time, these are quarterbacks that have typically stuck to the pocket and avoided making plays with their legs. Fields has started to trust himself more and may be able to hurt the Ravens in ways they have not seen.

This may open the rushing lanes for David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert. The Bears run game has been a revelation and the Ravens defense just so happens to be bottom five in explosive rushes allowed as well. Fields explosion on the ground and through the air is going to give them fits.
