The Baltimore Ravens have earned their place in the AFC playoffs with their 10-7 regular season record and will face the Cincinnati Bengals in the Wild Card round this weekend. Everything the team accomplished in 2022 was in spite of some adversity from injuries that they had faced since Week 1, especially pertaining to absences from star players such as quarterback Lamar Jackson.
Nonetheless, Baltimore has managed to bring the NFL’s longest streak of multi-sack games into the first round of the playoffs, and hopes are high that their fierce pass rush can help mitigate the threat posed by the Bengals’ prolific offense. The Ravens have seen contributions from outside linebackers Justin Houston, Tyus Bowser, David Ojabo and more, but have seen their sack production fall off ever since the bye week.
Despite the lack of recent production, Baltimore’s multi-sack streak has lasted for 13 weeks, and with some luck, the team could extend it with a strong showing this weekend. No less than 17 Ravens defenders have registered a sack this season, and with their season on the line Baltimore could look to add to that total in emphatic fashion against Cincinnati.
