The Baltimore Ravens managed to clinch the number 6 seed and reach the playoffs for the 4th time in the last 5 years despite late season struggles without starting QB Lamar Jackson who has missed the last 5 games since spraining his PCL in Week 13. The two-time Pro Bowl QB has not practiced since December 4. While Ravens’ head coach John Harbaugh mentioned that Jackson was in good spirits earlier this week and wants to play, it is unclear whether or not the 2019 NFL MVP will play in the postseason.

In his absence, Baltimore has relied on backup QB Tyler Huntley who is 2-2 as starter this season with 3 total touchdowns and 3 interceptions out of the last 4 games he’s played. Huntley, who signed with Baltimore as an undrafted free agent in 2020, has been dealing with tendinitis in his shoulder and did not play in Week 18. Anthony Brown, an undrafted rookie out of Oregon, completed 19-of-44 passes in his first career start in last Sunday’s 27-16 loss to Cincinnati.
