Baltimore Ravens vs. Philadelphia Eagles round table predictions
Before the season I predicted this to be one of the three losses on their schedule. Well, what I didn’t know was that the Philadelphia Eagles would deal with a ton of injuries, play some pretty horrible football and end up 1-3-1 at this point of the season. What looked like a tough game before the season now looks like a game the Ravens should dominate. Domination is really the only acceptable outcome in this game. The Ravens are an odd 4-1 team. Most 4-1 teams don’t need to find themselves, to collect themselves and start playing their best football and the Ravens do. This is an Eagles team that the Ravens should stomp on so this is a great chance to get right. That’s what I think is coming in this game.
I’m not worried about the defense in this game. I wrote about this already. The Bengals game and the Eagles game will look very similar for this portion of the Ravens roster. Carson Wentz is about to take a beating and the offense of the Eagles should be expected to sputter. We kind of already know what we’re getting into. Wentz is having a rough season and the built in excuses only go so far. So let’s focus on the offense for just a second here.
Offensively, this is a game where Lamar Jackson has to get things together. He was looking great in the first two games and then everything started to break down. I’m tired of hearing how this offense is out of sync. In reality, it’s just never found it’s groove. It’s not out of sync, it’s got to find what in sync is. Look for Jackson to go back to being exactly what he is, a dual threat quarterback. Jackson will have a vintage Lamar day with 220 passing yards, 80 rushing yards and a few touchdowns. Look for the offense to get right and look for Jackson to be the reason things start popping for the unit.
