The Baltimore Ravens enter Week 10 on the heels of a huge win against the New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football. They must avoid a letdown game against the 0-8 Cincinnati Bengals this week. The staff of Baltimore Beatdown gives some of their bold predictions for the AFC North match up.
Baltimore sets the NFL record for the highest time of possession in one game, eclipsing the 2009 Indianapolis Colts record of 47:49. The Ravens eclipse 50 carries, headlined by running back Gus Edwards with 25 carries for 150 yards and three touchdowns.
Wide receiver De’Anthony Thomas makes his debut with Baltimore by scoring on a kick return while also adding a new wrinkle to the Ravens already dangerous offense with over 50 rushing and receiving yards.
The defense continues their ascension to elite status by posting their first shutout of the season. Quarterback Lamar Jackson makes “trap games” a thing of the past in Baltimore and continues his meteoric rise to superstardom, throwing for 300 yards and rushing for 100 yards, leaving Week 10 as the clear MVP favorite.
Jackson has his best performance since his historic game against the Miami Dolphins in Week 1 by passing for over 300 yards and three touchdowns. Wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown and tight end Mark Andrews both eclipse 100 receiving yards. Running back Mark Ingram rushes for over 100 yards for the second week in a row.
The defense continues to make plays with another defensive score this week, this time on a pick six by free safety Earl Thomas against rookie quarterback Ryan Finley in his first career start.
