If Jackson is going to have a good day passing the football, that means the tight ends are going to have a good day catching it. In week 16 Jackson completed 12 passes and tight ends accounted for five of them. Mark Andrews had two grabs for 83 yards and a touchdown. Hayden Hurst had a nice 18 yard gain coming across the field and Nick Boyle had two receptions as well. If there is one match up the Ravens can exploit in the passing game it’s the tight ends.
Mark Andrews has been one of the most consistent pass catchers for the Ravens and Hayden Hurst is starting to come alive. Jackson seems to be most comfortable throwing it to these two players. Look for them to make the plays when the Ravens need a big pass.
4. The Ravens rush for 200 yards:
The Ravens ran the football for 159 rushing yards. That’s actually a fairly low number for this rushing attack. Baltimore now walks into every game thinking they can break 200 yards on the ground. The Chargers did a great job containing the Jackson in the running game however Gus Edwards went off for a few huge runs. Look for Edwards to do it again, while Dixon and Jackson get their totals up. The Ravens have proven that their rushing attack is awfully hard to stop. Pencil Baltimore in for 200 yards or more on the ground, it’s coming.
