The Ravens have won the last three matchups in this series after the Bucs won the first two. In the last meeting in 2014, Joe Flacco tied an NFL record with four first-quarter touchdown passes -- set by Minnesota's Tommy Kramer in 1986 -- en route to a 48-17 victory.

The Buccaneers fell to the Saints, 28-14, in Week 14 as they set season lows with 279 yards of total offense and 174 net passing yards. The Bucs had been 3-0 when having no more than one giveaway before losing to the Saints (one turnover).

The Ravens lost in Kansas City, 27-24 in overtime, in Week 14, their first loss with Lamar Jackson starting at quarterback. In each of Jackson's four starts, Baltimore has amassed more rushing yards than passing yards. The only team in the past 30 seasons with a longer such streak was the 2011 Broncos (7).

Cameron Brate had two touchdowns on two receptions last week. He has scored a touchdown on 14.9 percent of his career receptions (23/154), second highest among active players with at least 100 receptions behind Rob Gronkowski (15.3).

Lamar Jackson (71 rushing yards), Gus Edwards (67 yards) and Kenneth Dixon (59 yards) each topped 50 rushing yards in the loss to the Chiefs. That was the second time this season Baltimore has had three players rush for 50-plus yards while the rest of the league has had one such game (Seahawks at Rams).

The Buccaneers have the third-highest pass yards per attempt on offense, 8.74, and the second-highest pass yards per attempt on defense, 8.41. The Ravens have the fourth-lowest pass yards per attempt on offense, 6.56, and the lowest pass yards per attempt of defense, 6.21.
