No team this season has been hit harder by injuries and COVID-19 than the Baltimore Ravens, and they’ll enter Week 3 with a depleted front-seven on defense.
The Minnesota Vikings did have that preseason scare, but given the Ravens’ injury-plagued roster, we think Baltimore wins this one.
Four Ravens defenders were placed on the COVID-19 list on Friday: Brandon Williams, Justin Madubuike, Justin Houston, and Jaylon Ferguson. Along with their COVID-19 losses, the Ravens will also be without Derek Wolfe due to a lingering injury.
Right now, the Ravens’ injured and COVID-19 lists look more and more like a never-ending Costco receipt, but luckily they’ll face an easier matchup against Detroit on Sunday.
