Can the Ravens win with Tyler Huntley?

For a while, the NFL playoff-battling Baltimore Ravens will be without their franchise quarterback, Lamar Jackson, if they don’t finish in first place in the AFC North.

Until he can return from his sprained LCP, Tyler Huntley will be under center.

Huntley didn’t fare too bad after Jackson went down in Week 13, completing 27 of 32 passes in Baltimore’s 10-9 win over the Denver Broncos.

Can Huntley stay strong or are the Ravens poised for a downturn while Jackson is out?

Jackson is simply too valuable to the Ravens.

The Ravens’ success this season is due in large part to the success of their running game, which ranks eighth in touchdowns and third in yards gained.

Jackson leads the team by a mile in rushing yards with 764, as well as yards per rushing attempt with 6.8.

Kenyan Drake is second in both categories with 421 yards and 4.6 yards per attempt as he replaced JK Dobbins, the first Baltimore running back to be out since Week 7.

Without Jackson, the Ravens’ only big offensive threat is tight end Mark Andrews.

Huntley can run a bit on his own, but he’s just not the running threat that Jackson is, and not even close.

The Ravens are just losing a lot of their offense with Jackson sidelined.

Saving grace?

The Ravens have a relatively manageable schedule, as they face the Pittsburgh Steelers in week 14, the Cleveland Browns in week 15, the Atlanta Falcons on Christmas Eve, and the Steelers again on New Year’s Day.

The only very tough game left for Baltimore is their Week 18 tilt at the Cincinnati Bengals.

This favorable outlook could allow the team to make do with Huntley at QB, especially if Jackson’s absence doesn’t last too long.
