Ravens @ Chargers

Recommended Posts



This will be the 12th meeting all-time between these teams -- Baltimore holds a 6-5 edge and has scored only five more points (231-226). Each of the past three meetings has been decided by a score in the final 90 seconds of regulation or overtime.

Since Lamar Jackson took over as the starting quarterback, Baltimore is 4-1 and averaging an NFL-best 230.4 rushing yards per game, nearly 70 yards more than any other team in that span (Buffalo, 164.5).

The Chargers have won 10 of their last 11 games, with each of their last three coming by five points or fewer. Last week was the first game in franchise history that they won after trailing by at least 14 points in the final five minutes. They were also the first to win such a game in regulation since the Colts in 2008.

The Chargers have turned the ball over just 12 times this season, second fewest in the NFL (Seattle, 10). Baltimore has only 11 takeaways this year, also second fewest in the NFL (San Francisco, 5).

Lamar Jackson and Gus Edwards both went over 500 yards rushing last week, just the seventh rookie duo ever to accomplish that feat. They're only the third to do so in the past 40 years along with Cleveland's Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell in 2014 and Washington's Alfred Morris and Robert Griffin III in 2012.

Philip Rivers was sacked a season-high five times against the Chiefs last week and has been sacked multiple times in five straight games. That didn't happen once in his first nine games as he was sacked a total of just 12 times.

This will be a fun one, both of these could really use a win here to bolster either their playoff odds or their positioning. I like the Chargers here, I think they can play just efficiently enough to combat the Ravens Cerberus Offense.
