The Baltimore Ravens will limp into their Week 17 matchup with the Los Angeles Rams looking to salvage what has been a 2021 season ravaged by misfortune.

The Ravens are coming off an embarrassing 41-21 blowout loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 16 in a game that saw Josh Johnson and a host of backups get thrashed by their healthier foes.

Meanwhile, the Rams are looking to clinch the NFC West as they enter the game as winners of their last four contests.

The Ravens are undoubtedly the underdogs in what could be an ugly affair depending on who actually suits up for the team on Sunday.

Ravens vs. Rams Prediction Week 17

It’s difficult to predict a matchup when you don’t even know who will be playing. Will it be Lamar Jackson under center? Tyler Huntley? Josh Johnson again? It’s far too early to know.

But what we do know is that, no matter who plays quarterback for the Ravens in Week 17, they certainly won’t have a healthy roster around them. That’s especially true for the defense.

Marlon Humphrey and Marcus Peters are out for the season. Anthony Averett is nursing a ribs injury. The Ravens’ secondary is an absolute mess and they could have a very difficult time against a powerhouse Rams offense.

Matthew Stafford, Cooper Kupp, and company could have a field day against a Ravens defense that has seen better days. And therein lies the team’s biggest issue.

How can you trust a cornerback room led by Kevon Seymour and Robert Jackson to slow down one of the best passing offenses in football? You just can’t.

The Ravens are desperate for a win, but desperation will only get you so far. Ultimately, let’s call it a Rams win by a final score of 38-24, depending on who starts at quarterback for Baltimore.
