Baltimore Ravens: 5 optimistic predictions for 5 more games
Prediction 5. Mayfield vs. Jackson will be hyped but the Ravens defense will steal the show:
You can almost here the week 17 hype train already. Lamar Jackson vs. Baker Mayfield. Its two rookie quarterbacks, and two division rivals. The Ravens could have a playoff spot on the line. The media will focus on the quarterbacks but the defense of the Ravens will win the day. The last time the Ravens played the Browns, Cleveland won 12-9 in overtime. This defense will want revenge. They got enough stops to win the last game, but the offense let them down. This time the Ravens will win.
If this comes into fruition the Ravens have a chance to make up for the 4th and 12 disaster against the Bengals. While it’s a different divisional rival, the defense will make a point at finishing this thing. The Ravens defense will give Mayfield his toughest test of the season and the Browns won’t be able to spoil the playoff hopes of the purple and black. Mayfield will make it hard, but the defense will have the firepower to get the job done.
There you have it. These are five optimistic predictions. They are optimistic, but they are backed by reason. This isn’t just a look through purple tinted sunglasses. This is the bright side approach of the Ravens season, as it looks right now. Let’s see which of these predictions come true. One thing is for sure. There is so much on the line that it will not be boring.
