The Ravens experienced their biggest win of the season against the Browns last Monday to keep their playoff hopes alive. They will have to avoid the classic letdown game this week against the 1-12 Jaguars. The staff of Baltimore Beatdown gives some of their bold predictions for Sunday’s game.
This is the Dez Bryant game. After a week of reps in practice nearly exclusive to Bryant, he throws up the X twice as he scores two touchdowns.
Yannick Ngakoue and Calais Campbell combine for three sacks and two forced fumbles in their return to Jacksonville. Lamar Jackson doesn’t miss a beat with the changes to the WR room and still throws for three touchdowns, one in the red zone to Dez Bryant and a deep ball to Devin Duvernay to give each player their first touchdowns of the season, while the third goes to Mark Andrews.
The Ravens continue leaning into their 2018 formula, totaling over 300 yards on the ground. Jackson and J.K. Dobbins each rattle off runs over 40 yards, while Gus Edwards has his second consecutive two-score game. DeShon Elliott finally nabs his first career interception after flirting with a few over the course of the season.
After a poor showing against the Browns in Week 14, the Ravens defense gets back on track in a advantageous matchup this Sunday. Baltimore makes life difficult for Gardner Minshew by sacking him four times and picking him off twice. Tyus Bowser continues his hot streak by recording an interception for the fourth straight game, while Chuck Clark nabs his first INT of the season in the fourth quarter to seal a double-digit Ravens victory.
Baltimore is facing the third-worst run defense in the NFL this Sunday. The offense will rush for over 250 yards with Lamar Jackson leading the way with over 150 on the ground. Jackson accounts for four touchdowns, two on the ground and two through the air. Defensively, the Ravens bounce back after an embarrassing performance last Monday. Baltimore’s defense has over four sacks and three turnovers in a blowout.
