The Baltimore Ravens are set to take on the New York Jets in Week 1 of the 2022 NFL season. Following a disappointing 8-9 campaign from a year ago, the Ravens are hoping to put together a bounce-back season.
They face some favorable competition in the form of the Jets this Sunday. That said, this is a Jets team that has quietly improved quite a bit over the last two years. They aren’t a team that should be taken for granted.
As for the Ravens, they’re the favorites in this matchup for a reason. The organization enters the 2022 season with legitimate Super Bowl aspirations with a hopefully healthy and rejuvenated roster.
Will the Ravens start their season on the right track or will they fall short of expectations in an upset loss to the Jets? Let’s take a look at everything you need to know about Sunday’s game.

Ravens vs. Jets Prediction Week 1
The Ravens could be facing a familiar face in the form of quarterback Joe Flacco who seems primed to start for the Jets unless Zach Wilson is able to recover in time for Sunday’s game.
Flacco is still a capable quarterback, but he’s far from the most dangerous QB the Ravens will face in 2022. He’s someone this improved Ravens defense should be able to handle.
While the Jets’ pass rush could create some issues, especially given the uncertainty at left tackle, this Ravens roster is still much more talented than their opponents. More importantly, they have a much better quarterback.
Expect this Ravens secondary to make life very difficult for Flacco and the Jets while Lamar Jackson and the Ravens offense runs roughshod over a still unproven Jets defense.
The Jets put up a fight, but the Ravens win the game by a final score of 31-21.
