We see a battle of the Tight Ends
The Lions and Ravens have been very similar teams in many ways this season. One of those areas has been their production from their starting tight ends.
The Lions selected Sam LaPorta in the second round of the 2023 draft, and he looks like a star already.
LaPorta has been one of Jared Goff's top targets this season, racking up 29 catches for 325 yards and 3 touchdowns in his first 6 career games. These are extremely impressive numbers for LaPorta, ranking him in the top 5 for most tight end categories this season.
As for the Ravens, they continue to get great production from star tight end Mark Andrews.
In just 5 games this season, he has 24 catches for 294 yards and 3 touchdowns, while leading all tight ends in yards per catch and 20+ yard plays.
I expect both of these players to be important fixtures of their respective offenses this Sunday. I predict that LaPorta and Andrews both record at least 75 yards and a touchdown.
