Marlon Humphrey: Ja’Marr Chase has made NFL look easy

The Ravens have beaten the Bengals five straight times and they’ve outscored their divisional mates 114-19 over the last three games, but the talk around Baltimore on Wednesday was not centered on how easy this Sunday’s game is going to be.

The Bengals are 4-2, which makes it easy for Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson to say that you “can’t overlook anybody in the NFL” and the influx of new talent on the Cincinnati roster makes for faulty comparisons to past seasons. Jackson said the defense is “flying around” while quarterback Joe Burrow is healthy and running an offense that includes first-round wideout Ja'Marr Chase.

Chase has the second-most receiving yards through the first six games of a career of any player in history and his play has caught the eye of Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey.

“Chase has added a lot of juice to their offense,” Humphrey said, via the team’s website. “It’s actually been really surprising. He’s really made the NFL look pretty easy.”

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh called the Bengals “one of the best teams” in the league and their emergence may make Sunday’s game the spark for a new rivalry in the AFC North.

  1. Bengals owned the Ravens for most of the Marvin Lewis days, but those days are gone and the script has been flipped. Ravens have been trouncing the Bengals with Lamar. It will fun to see some closer games between these two in the North. Two exciting cornerbacks and some good wr’s on each team will make this a good one.

  2. Chase has been fantastic, which shows how much the media has become blowhards since they basically cast this kid away during preseason. Should be a great game this week. As a Ravens fan I’ve been extremely impressed with this team and it’s really cool to see the likes of Borrow and Chase really shine. I love divisional games like this.

    Steelers and Browns I could careless, I hope they lose every game for the rest eternity. But the Bengals for some reason I have a soft spot for their fan base.

    Mutual respect here. I remember when Lamar was coming out, I wanted Cincy to take him at 21. My fear was that Cleveland would take him… then you all did and I thought “oh, no.” Hoping for a great game Sunday.

  4. Bengals Oline is bad. This could be ugly if they don’t start fast. Which means lots of Mixon and short routes early. They better have a strong screen game.
