The Ravens are looking to get back into the win column against the Cowboys after losing their last three games. The staff of Baltimore Beatdown gives some bold predictions for Tuesday’s game.
Lamar Jackson will come roaring back with a triumphant “are you not entertained” performance. Jackson will make quick work of the Dallas defense. Jackson and the rest of Baltimore’s offense will have one of their best games of the season as they hope to stay alive in the playoff race. The defense will also make quick work of the injured offensive line of the Cowboys. I am predicting at least five sacks and two takeaways for the Ravens on defense.
In his first game back in over a month, Calais Campbell picks up right where he left off and dominates the Cowboys up front. Campbell records two sacks, multiple pass deflections and forced a fumble. The return of Campbell and Brandon Williams help the Ravens hold Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard to under 60 combined rushing yards on the night, as the Ravens get off to a fast start and Dallas is forced to play from behind. Offensively, J.K. Dobbins also shines in his first post-COVID action, serving as the catalyst with well over 100 yards from scrimmage and a pair of touchdowns.
The Ravens go back to basics following an enlightening experience in Pittsburgh, relying on their option run game like it’s 2018. Baltimore accouns for 240 yards on the ground at six yards a clip, a formula that the Ravens will ride in effort to make a similar run to force their way into the playoffs again. DeShon Elliott finally snags his first career interception. The Ravens accumulate 3+ sacks, 2+ turnovers and score a defensive touchdown in a classic Baltimore beatdown of a team with a plethora of backups similar to the Matt Moore led Dolphins and Tom Savage led Texans at home in the past few years.
I am going to go with a supernova bold prediction and say Dez Bryant not only scores a touchdown but that we see a repeat of the McGahee/McClain 2008 game with Dobbins and Gus Edwards busting off 50+ yard touchdown runs.
After his long touchdown against the Steelers last week, Marquise “Hollywood” Brown follows it up with another explosive performance, including a deep touchdown. Dez Bryant has his best performance as a Raven, totaling over 60 receiving yards and a touchdown against his former team while the world is watching. Defensively, Baltimore takes advantage of the one of the worst offensive lines in the league by sacking Andy Dalton over five times.
