Ravens placed QB Tyler Huntley on the reserve/COVID-19 list. It leaves Josh Johnson in line to start with Lamar Jackson (questionable, ankle) potentially active as the No. 2 quarterback. 35-year-old Johnson hasn't started since 2018 but had a three touchdown game in relief of Mike White for the Jets earlier this season. The downgrade from Huntley to Johnson is a massive hit to the Ravens' chances of winning the AFC North.

Joe Burrow completed 15-of-22 passes for 157 yards and one touchdown in the Bengals' 15-10, Week 15 win over the Broncos. The 22 attempts were Burrow's second-fewest of the season, as neither offense could move the ball against either defense. Burrow has been held to 190 passing yards or fewer in three of the last five games and has devolved into a QB2. His touchdown was a 56-yard hookup with slot man Tyler Boyd, who posted 5-96-1 on the day. Burrow will try to rebound next week against the Ravens. He had 416 yards and three touchdowns versus Baltimore back in Week 7.
