The Baltimore Ravens take on the New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football. How can they get the win? Here are three ways to get the job done:
1. Lamar Jackson has to put on a show:
The New England Patriots have their hands full when they take on the Baltimore Ravens. The Patriots biggest issue is stopping Lamar Jackson. Jackson has to put on a show against the defending Super Bowl champions. Jackson is a quarterback who can win with his arm and with his legs. To this point, nobody in the 2019 season has had an answer for his skill-set. Jackson put the team on his back against the Seahawks. If Jackson has a big day through the air and on the ground the Ravens will have a shot.
Jackson has a chance to frustrate a defense that hasn’t been frustrated very much this season. The Patriots defense has played almost perfectly to this point of the season. The key to giving the Patriots their first bad day of the year is Jackson’s overall production. If Jackson has 200 yards passing or more and close to 100 yards on the ground, it’s hard to see the Ravens losing this game. Jackson is the x-factor in this game. If Jackson has another jaw dropping performance things should go the Ravens way.
The Patriots are most likely going to try to make Jackson win the game as a passer. The Ravens could see a lot of man coverage with some creative ways to contain Jackson in the pocket. This is where Jackson could see Mark Andrews be the difference maker for him in the passing game.
