1. The Baltimore Ravens defense has to close out game
The Baltimore Ravens defense has a case to be made that they are an elite unit. At the same time, when big moments happen in games, this unit has not shown up big. They allowed fourth-quarter comebacks to Gardner Minshew and Kenny Pickett early in the season. Recently, Deshaun Watson and Matthew Stafford had success through the air.
The Ravens beat the Rams, but the defense could not hold onto a three-point lead with just over one minute to go in the game. Now, they get Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars. Lawrence will be one of the best quarterbacks that the Ravens have faced this season. As shown with Stafford, when the big-name quarterbacks show up, the Ravens can tend to struggle. They did close out the game against Justin Herbert, but we saw how bad that Chargers team is.
The Jaguars are at home; they are desperate for a win, and they will be competing until the very end. It is hard to see the Ravens blowing out the Jaguars, so Lawrence will have a chance to win the game late. Considering his status, he will have a great chance to pull off that victory. Are the Ravens ready to close out a game against a good quarterback?
