It’s hard to find any fault with the Ravens performance through two weeks of the season. At 2-0 with decisive wins over the rival Browns and Houston Texans, John Harbaugh’s group is off to a strong start. But, if there has been one area of concern so far, it’s been the number of hits opposing defenses have gotten on quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Through two games, the Ravens have given up six sacks, tied for 5th-most in the league with several other teams. Jackson has been hurried 10 times according to Pro Football Reference’s stats and while he’s largely avoided getting hit on those hurries, he’s been pressured on 26.7% of his dropbacks this season.

“It’s never as good as you think, it’s never as bad as you think. When we looked at it, a lot of it wasn’t terrible pass protection but at the same time we know we can be cleaner,” said Stanley during a press conference this week. “We know we can be better. That’s what we’re focused on. We don’t want our quarterback taking that many hits.”
