2. Marlon Humphrey and Marcus Peters both create a turnover:
The playoffs aren’t just about taking advantage of your opportunities. They are also about making chances to succeed. Turnovers are the best way to create your own luck and they are in desperate need of Baltimore against the Titans.
The Titans are going to put up some points in this game even if the Ravens have a good game defensively. Turnovers will be needed to curb the Titans’ momentum. It has been a while since Marcus Peters had one of his signature interceptions. I think the former Pro Bowl cornerback will remind us how special he is at taking the ball away.
Peters had four interceptions this season, but he feels due for one of the pick-six moments that have made him famous. I have a funny feeling that Ryan Tannehill is going to be baited into a throw by Peters and it will lead to a touchdown for Baltimore.
Marlon Humphrey always has a chance to create a turnover. He’s the best cornerback in the NFL at punching the football out. Humphrey is as fearless as any player at the cornerback position. While everyone is seemingly afraid of Derrick Henry, I wouldn’t be shocked if he strips him of the ball as another Raven has him held up. That’s a bold prediction and I like it. It’s more likely that Humphrey will punch the ball out from a wide receiver, yet I really want to see somebody surprise Henry.
Remember, Corey Davis and A.J. Brown had good days against the Ravens in the previous meeting for these two teams. This is time for a little revenge from the defensive backs. If the Ravens are going to win this game they need their two best defensive backs to have their fingerprints on the success. They need to look like the superstars they are in coverage but also help the turnover battle.
