The New England Patriots face their stiffest test to date this weekend when they travel south to take on the Baltimore Ravens. Standing in the way of a 9-0 start is dynamic young quarterback Lamar Jackson. His numbers this season — both as a passer and as a runner — are worthy of MVP consideration. They also speak to his development at the position and the task ahead for Bill Belichick and this Patriots’ defense.
So how will they look to contain Jackson? Perhaps by looking back to the Big 12. This show opens with a revisitation of a piece from this summer, looking at Iowa State, the Tite front and the future of defense. Then, Mark Schofield looks at how the Los Angeles Chargers used that defense in the playoffs against Jackson and the Ravens offense.
Afterwards, fan favorite Taylor Kyles joins the show for some “Quality Time.” They dive into the trade deadline, the win over the Cleveland Browns, improving the run defense and defending Jackson.
