With Lamar Jackson at quarterback, the Ravens can claim one of the most exciting offenses in the NFL (7th in PPG in 2020 with 29.3), but injuries could hamper them in their season opener Monday against the Raiders.
Baltimore totaled the seventh-most points in the league last year thanks in large part to their 27 passing touchdowns and 24 rushing touchdowns. But the team will have a number of players out of the lineup for Monday's game in Las Vegas.
