Baltimore Beatdown's Ravens-Jaguars predictions

Here are our predictions for today's game. Make yours in the comments section below.

Brad Barr-USA TODAY Sports

Chuck Mills: Joe Flacco throws touchdowns to Steve Smith, Torrey Smith/Kamar Aiken and Michael Campanaro. Justin Forsett runs for 200 yards and three touchdowns. Terrell Suggs, Timmy Jernigan, Brandon Williams, Chris Canty, Pernell McPhee, Daryl Smith and C.J. Mosley all register sacks. Elvis Dumervil gets three. Blake Bortles throws two interceptions and if not for the Ravens letting up late in the game, this would be a shutout. Prediction: Ravens 42, Jaguars 10

Jason Butt: Cam Cameron isn't running the show on offense anymore, which means the absurdity that transpired in 2011 won't happen at home against Jacksonville today. The defensive pressure up front with Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil should make things difficult on Blake Bortles. While the secondary is the weakest part of the team, this front seven will more than make up for it. And on offense, it should be smooth sailing against a defense that hasn't been able to stop much of anything. Prediction: Ravens 38, Jaguars 17

Daniel Park: Head coach Gus Bradley's defense might cause slight problems for Joe Flacco, only because Peyton Manning struggled too (last year's Super Bowl). But the Jaguars offense will stagnate, their offensive line will struggle against our linebacking unit, and Elvis Dumervil or Terrell Suggs will pressure Bortles into throwing ducks. Prediction: Ravens 24, Jaguars 14

Matthew Stevens: The Ravens have done an excellent job this year of winning games that should be pretty automatic and the Jaguars are one of those teams. Right now the Ravens know that the best way to the playoffs is simply by winning out and the Jaguars are in the way. With a defense and offense that is in the bottom of the league, the Jaguars should be one of the easier teams that the Ravens have to play this season, leading to a pretty lopsided score. Prediction: Ravens 31, Jaguars 17

Rocky Friedman: Although no NFL team can be taken lightly, I don't think the Ravens should have many issues against this Jacksonville team. They rank in the bottom of the NFL in almost every category, while the Ravens rank near the top in several. Add to all this that the game is at home, and I think that the Ravens will come out with a commanding 20-point victory. Prediction: Ravens 27 Jaguars 7
