Justin Herbert (vs. Baltimore Ravens)

One defense that has been great all season has been the Baltimore Ravens as they are allowing the third fewest passing yards per game (169.7) and tied for the fewest passing touchdowns with only nine through 11 games.

Justin Herbert has been playing pretty well as of late with nine passing touchdowns and only one interception over the past four games. However, the reason this is a week to avoid Herbert is he struggles when defenses are able to get pressure on him.

The worst game over the last four for Herbert was in Week 9 against the New York Jets. In that game, he was sacked five times and had no touchdowns while he has been sacked twice in the other three games and has thrown nine touchdowns.

The Ravens currently lead the league in sacks and should get pressure on Herbert. There are not many weeks that Herbert is a candidate to bench, but this might be a week to do that.
