1. Stopping Lamar Jackson
Plenty of factors will come into play Monday night when it comes to seeing whether the Rams have what it takes to defeat the Ravens, but nothing will be as important as the defense doing their best to keep Lamar Jackson in check.
Some critics didn’t hold back at the beginning of the season over their concerns with Jackson since many believed the Ravens were making a mistake moving forward with a quarterback due to his lack of throwing abilities.
Heading into Week 12, no one seems to be criticizing Jackson anymore after looking at the way the Louisville product has transformed Baltimore’s offense, and even has his name as part of the MVP conversation.
Time will tell when it comes to seeing whether Jackson ends up taking home the honors, but for now, all the Rams care about is trying to keep the Ravens quarterback in check as much as possible.
Whether it involves good coverage on the wide receivers or simply taking away space for him to run, Los Angeles knows stopping Jackson is going to be far from easy, but also they have no other choice since this will be the best chance for the Rams to win.
