The Ravens were defeated in Week 15 in heartbreaking fashion, losing to the Buccaneers in the final seconds of the game. Jameis Winston sliced and diced Baltimore’s defense and broke down the Ravens, despite an efficient game from Joe Flacco and the offense.

Baltimore enters Week 16 at 8-6, and they will likely need a win in this scenario to keep their postseason hopes alive, assuming they are still in the playoff conversation. However, it will be a challenging task, as they have to travel across the country to play a highly competitive Los Angeles Chargers squad.

Furthermore, Philip Rivers is an objectively better quarterback than Winston, so the defense will really need to elevate their intensity if they want to pull off what would be considered an upset. Tune into this week’s prediction to find out if the Ravens keep themselves in contention for a playoff berth.
