Who: Washington Football Team
When: 10/4 @ 10:00 AM
Where: FedEx Field
I’m not sure this game needs much explanation for obvious reasons. Washington has had one rough offseason with Alex Smith’s return being the only silver lining. They’ll be without starting running back Derrius Guice after he was released for domestic violence charges and they have a brand new coaching staff. This is obviously a team in the process of rebuilding its franchise so I don’t expect them to put up much of a fight if Baltimore doesn’t overlook them.
Washington does have a formidable defensive line consisting of multiple former first-round picks but their secondary is a huge weak spot. Expect a big game for Lamar Jackson through the air and a fourth-quarter with Robert Griffin III behind center. If all goes according to plan Baltimore will leave Washington 4-0.
Predicted Score: 41-14 Ravens
Summary: The first quarter of the season consists of three exciting matchups and one dud but if the Ravens come out of it 4-0 like I predict I won’t have any complaints. The biggest question mark is obviously the week three matchup against Kansas City as the Ravens could definitely lose that game but my gut is telling me they won’t. Taking down Cleveland, Houston, Kansas City, and Washington in the first four weeks would be a phenomenal start for the 2020 Baltimore Ravens.
