The Ravens’ star QB missed practice two weeks ago because he was ill. Also, he was sidelined from practice last week owing to a hip injury. The First-Team All-Pro QB has been consistent throughout the season so far. He only missed four games till now. The 2x Pro Bowl ranks 10th in the NFL in QBR (60.9). He can move up the list if the Baltimore Ravens made some changes.

The team can only win if Jackson plays like his MVP self. Although the team has continued to perform well, they should consider changing the offensive coordinator of the team. This way, they won’t struggle with the offense and won’t need Jackson to save the day like always.
