1. The Ravens blitz, and Justin Fields does not mind.

The Ravens are one of the blitz heaviest teams in the NFL, but we noted that Justin Fields is not impacted by the blitz. On the contrary, it is much easier to hurt him by getting home with four. He sees the blitz and gets the ball out of his hands. When he does not see the blitz he feels safe, almost too safe in the pocket.

The Ravens’ aggressive nature is why they are so low in explosive plays allowed. Wink Martindale Is a great defensive coordinator, but he knows his team has weaknesses throughout. So, he is playing ultra-aggressive and looking to change games with sacks, and turnovers.

The flip side to that is that he gets torched by big plays in all areas. Justin Fields is cool, calm, and collected against the blitz, and when it comes to man-for-man talent, the Ravens cannot slow Justin Fields down.

Considering his growth, the holes on the Ravens, and the fact that their style of defense plays to the strengths of Justin Fields make you feel like Justin Fields and Lamar Jackson are going to be going back and forth in a shoot-out on Sunday.
