The Baltimore Ravens beat the Cincinnati Bengals last Thursday night and will now enter Week 12 off a mini-BYE week to take on the Chargers in Los Angeles.

Heading into Week 13, the Ravens hold the No. 1 seed in the AFC over the Chiefs, but they need to keep winning games if they want to hold on to that spot. In this article, I'm going to break down everything you need to know to bet on this AFC showdown.

Ravens vs. Chargers key players to watch

Baltimore Ravens

Isaiah Likely: With Mark Andrews sidelined, Isaiah will take over as the top tight end in Baltimore. Nobody will expect him to produce at the level of Andrews, but if he can step up and be a solid receiving option, it will go a long way in the Ravens locking up the No. 1 seed in the conference.

Los Angeles Chargers

Derwin James: The Chargers' defense needs to step up in a big way and that starts and ends with their best defensive player, Derwin James. He's second on the league in tackles with 67 and when he's at the best, he's all over the field stopping both the run and the pass. He'll have to be at his best for the Chargers to upset the Ravens on Sunday night.

Ravens vs. Chargers prediction and pick

I don't care how many weapons the Chargers have on offense, their defense is truly atrocious. They rank 28th in both opponent EPA/Play and opponent success rate while also ranking 29th in opponent yards per play, giving up 5.8 yards per snap.

The Ravens defense, on the other hand, ranks first in opponent yards per play (4.2), second in opponent EPA, and fifth in opponent success rate. Justin Herbert and company are in for a long night while Lamar Jackson should be able to do whatever he wants against the Chargers.

It's also worth noting the Ravens have been fantastic on the road this season, leading the NFL in Net Yards per Play in that spot. I've been betting on Baltimore all season and I won't stop now.
