The Ravens look to stack wins with a divisional win over the Browns after snapping their three-game losing streak last week against the Cowboys. The outcome of this game will have major AFC playoff implications. The staff of Baltimore Beatdown is here to give you some of their bold predictions for this AFC North showdown.
In a battle of the league’s top-two rushing attacks, the Ravens rush for over 200 yards as a team for the second-straight week. They cash in all three of their red zone attempts, courtesy of three touchdown passes by Lamar Jackson — which he has not done since playing the Browns in Week 1. Marcus Peters makes a game-changing play in the fourth quarter by intercepting Baker Mayfield, setting up Justin Tucker to seal a Baltimore victory.
The Browns will look much better in this game than they did earlier in this season when these two teams met. Nick Chubb will be especially difficult to deal with and will rush for over 100 yards. The Ravens will also look good, however, and Lamar Jackson will have a great game as long as the offensive line can slow down Myles Garrett. Baker Mayfield throws at least two interceptions and Baltimore wins 24-18.
The Ravens’ suspect offensive line shuts out Myles Garrett, who ends up with zero sacks on the day. Lamar Jackson picks Cleveland’s secondary apart a second time and the team puts up over 35 points again. Baltimore’s defense has some trouble with the run game and allows over 20 points, but a late interception by DeShon Elliott seals the victory.
J.K. Dobbins runs wild against the Browns, totaling over 130 yards on the ground while the Ravens eclipse 200 yards rushing as a team. Lamar Jackson has one of his most proficient games of the season, missing only a handful of passes and tossing two touchdowns while rushing for another. Nick Chubb has a field day against Baltimore’s defense, but a few costly turnovers from Cleveland’s offense put them in a hole that they are unable to crawl out of.
