1.) Tyreek Hill vs. Baltimore Ravens

This is definitely the biggest risk to take, especially in a championship game. However, the matchup of the Baltimore Ravens could not have come at a worse time. The defense for Baltimore has punished opponents this season and if quarterback Tua Tagavailoa feels the pressure that the Ravens can create, this will greatly affect the production of Tyreek Hill. In his last two games, he has not been his usual dominant self, with not being able to go north of 100 receiving yards or get into the end zone. 

There is no doubt that Hill’s presence will be one to attend to for the Ravens’ defense. However, with what the Baltimore defense just did to the San Francisco 49ers’ offense, there is no doubt that Hill faces more of an uphill battle. 

This is the biggest risk of the season to take, but it is important to remember that Jaylen Waddle’s health is up in the air after suffering an injury last week against the Dallas Cowboys. If Waddle is not able to go, that provides a little bit of room for the Ravens to put their main focus on Hill.
