Due to their bye week, the Baltimore Ravens did not play in Week 13.
However, they must have felt victorious as they witnessed the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns, the two teams closest to them in the AFC North battle, both suffer losses.
The Browns lost to the Los Angeles Rams away from home, while the Steelers were humiliated by the Arizona Cardinals at home.
Kenny Pickett, the starting quarterback for Pittsburgh, had an ankle injury and Joe Flacco became Cleveland's fourth quarterback of the year, therefore both clubs faced quarterback problems.
So far this season, the Ravens have been quite fortunate with regard to the health of their quarterback.
Lamar Jackson has not missed a game, which is regrettably becoming a yearly occurrence in the last several seasons.
Still, there are a few things to be concerned about after the bye week.
Jackson didn't practice on Thursday, according JPAFootball on X, the former Twitter.
He wasn't there today after participating fully on Wednesday. Since this is the first time this season that he has missed practice, no explanation has been provided.
Given the uncertainty surrounding the issue, this will be something to watch.
