Not sure yet who Buffalo gets back, but my understanding is they're without 4-6 defensive starters.
Ravens should get their points.
Buffalo has trouble running the ball besides Allen.
He had 60+ passing attempts yesterday. He's going to get his yards. Make the march the field, and tighten up in the RZ.
If you can't get pressure, then you are going to drop back and hopefully you force him into a turnover or two.
Should be someone spying him too, and trying to limit his running.
The left tackle situation will be big as usual. How severe is Mekari's ankle sprain? Is Ronnie Stanley actually close to getting on the field? If Faalele has to start, how will the protection be tailored to help him out and what might we have to sacrifice in other areas?
In years past, when the Ravens were matching up against a high scoring offense, it was all about what our defense could do to slow them down. We have to move past that mentality as a fan base. These aren't the Ray Lewis, Ed Reed Ravens anymore and opposing offenses are going to get theirs; at least until the defense gets a few pieces back. The defense will need to be opportunistic and capitalize on chances to take the ball away, as well as do what they can to limit the ball going over their heads.
With that said, the Ravens now have an offense that is one of the best in the league. So even if they can't do much to slow down Allen or Burrow, they can certainly match those guys point for point.
I say this week after week, time after time, until I'm blue in the face.....more often than not, if you can take care of the football on offense and take it away on defense, you're going to win ballgames. That's another thing that made the Miami game even more bizarre and rare. Rather than look at what happened 2 Sundays ago as a harbinger, perhaps we should be looking at it as an anomaly. That is not to say that the defense is suddenly going to morph into the 2000 defense but they should and can be more effective than they have been. And given the offensive prowess so far this season, if the defense can just approach average, that should be more than enough to stack some W's.
