2. Lamar Jackson gets someone fired

Also back in the depth chart is quarterback Lamar Jackson. You know, the 2019 NFL MVP. After being inactive last game due to COVID-19, Jackson is sure to return to form when the Ravens need him most.

To date, Jackson has rushed 103 times for nearly 600 yards in 10 games. He is averaging 5.6 yards a pop and found the endzone three times. The dual-threat quarterback also owns a quarterback rating of 93.4.

Look, the Dallas Cowboys have trouble stopping the run. Yes, the team has looked better in recent weeks in some shades, but this game will feel like the Arizona Cardinals contest all over again. Quarterback Kyler Murray is entering his element, showing signs of his prominence against Dallas a few weeks ago. Now imagine Lamar Jackson toying with the Dallas defense.

Jackson is the leading rusher for Baltimore. He has 189 rushing yards over the next rusher, running back Gus Edwards. On top of that, the Ravens carry three capable and dangerous running backs on their depth chart: Names that include Edwards, Mark Ingram II, J.K. Dobbins.

At a 6-5 record, which places them third in the AFC North, the Baltimore Ravens have a lot to play for. The Ravens are going to give defensive coordinator Mike Nolan a Tuesday night headache. I think this will get so bad for Nolan that folks will be calling for his head on Wednesday morning.
