2. Joe Flacco tames Titans talented pass defense:
While the Ravens may have some problems, this does look like a game the Ravens should win. Joe Flacco is going to have a big day. For one thing, the entire Ravens coaching staff knows the book on Dean Pees. Things could be different with the Titans, but Baltimore knows his tendencies. This could be a huge advantage for the Ravens. Another thing to remember, is that Flacco has been very good this season. Flacco’s stat line looks great right now. He’s 139 for 227 passing for 1,550 yards, with eight touchdowns and three interceptions.
Flacco has a chance to keep things rolling. The Titans have one of the best pass defenses in the NFL. Malcolm Butler and Adoree Jackson are a potent cornerback combination. The Titans are also talented at rushing the passer. Flacco has earned some confidence, even after a frustrating day in Cleveland. When the offense has stumbled, it hasn’t always been about Flacco.
In a season where Flacco has a lot to prove, I see him lighting the Titans up, when it matters most. Give me 285 yards and two touchdowns for Flacco. Flacco is going to play sharp and it’s going to be keep the Ravens offense on the field in big spots. To make the prediction a little bolder, I’ll tell you how Flacco gets it done. Pees always has had defenses that have struggled to stop the tight end. Look for Hayden Hurst and Mark Andrews to have a huge impact on this game.
