This could be totally stupid because I’m not an NFL defensive coordinator, but, here goes...

 

Id clog the line and keep everyone in their lanes. I’m talking 4 or 5 linemen in the gaps, 2 or 3 LBs playing off the line and crashing, a safety in the middle and two DBs. The second it’s apparent it’s not a run, drop the LBs, a lineman, and clog up the middle passing lanes. Make Jackson stay and throw to the sidelines or in really tight windows. 
 

 

That's a pretty good stab at how the defense plays the Ravens O to me. 👍

Quick blind player comparison:
 

Player A - 12 games with 32 receptions for 367 and 2 TDs (1st Rd Pick)

Player B - 12 games with 25 receptions for 307 and 2 TDs (3rd Rd Pick)

 

 

Player A - TJ Hockenson

Player B - Rambo Knox

 

Happened to stumble on this when I saw Hockenson is going to IR. Found it interesting considering how popular a pick Hockenson was in a lot of mock drafts for our selection.

The Ravens went out in the off-season and added players, then revised their offensive scheme so as to avoid last season.

 

Key offensive skill player additions:

-Mark Ingram at RB.  30 years old, 5 ypa, and 70 ypg

-Nick Boyle (R) at TE

-Marquise Brown (R) at WR

-a much more pass-capable Lamar Jackson

 

What the Ravens looked like against the 9ers with 100+ yards passing, 180 yds rushing, and 20 points, is about as close to shut down as one's gonna get

 

The Bills went out in the off season and added players, then revised their offensive scheme so as to avoid last season.

 

Key offensive skill player additions:

-Devin Singletary (R) and Frank Gore at RB.

-Dawson Knox (R) at TE

-John Brown and Cole Beasley at WR

-a much more pass-capable Josh Allen

 

The Ravens went from playoff team to contender.  The Bills went from inconsistent underdog to contender.  We'll play them tough.

I think one of the things that helps us in this game is that we have 10 days rest to prepare. The Ravens have to study two different opponents this week since they have a Thursday night game against the Jets in week 15. The fact that they have to study two different opponents takes a little bit of their focus off of our game. The fact that this game is at home as well is big

TE's take longer to develop, hockenson will be a stud eventually.

That being said so will Knox when he fully develops.

I really can't wait to see him develop next year.

As much as I hope I'm wrong, I just can't see how we beat the Ravens. 

 

My hope is that home field gives the bills some advantage and maybe Lamar has an off game. Obviously he's gonna run, and if I'm on the bills defense I'm going after that ball like my life depends on it when he decides to run

Yup, you got to try and pry it out of there and do the best you can keeping the TE's in check along with Ingram. Definitely easier said than done, but if the Bills D can just contain them for the most part and the offense covers their end, the Bills will have a strong chance at pulling out the W.

 

Also at least it's in New Era, 12th man will make it a little more difficult also.So we have that. We will see how the cookie crumbles.

We do it by scoring more points than them.

I ain't even worried about who the opponent is to be honest with you.

 

I wanna see how much this O can grow and be a viable championship unit.

Only way Bills win IMO is with the defense and special team scoring some points.

Ravens beat  the 1st and 2nd defenses, well as the saying goes, 3rd times the charm for the top defenses

 

and sf was really close
