Ravens Week 12 Predictions
4. Lamar comes back and goes off
Lamar Jackson was a late scratch for the Ravens last game against the Chicago Bears due to an unknown virus. Luckily for Lamar Jackson and the Ravens, it was not COVID-19 related.
There’s a reason why Lamar Jackson has arguably been the best quarterback in football this season. He’s going to show that again against a tough Browns defense. If the Ravens want to make the playoffs, they’re going to have to be near perfect from here on out as they play in an extremely competitive division.
Lamar Jackson is going to continue his hot streak by throwing for over 250 yards with two touchdowns. He will also have a rushing touchdown and rush for over 50 yards.
This would be a huge game for the Ravens to pick up over a divisional rival. Lamar Jackson realizes that and he’s going to do everything in his power to make sure that the Ravens walk away from this one 8-3.
3. Pick up a game against a division rival
Although the Ravens are in first place in the AFC North, there isn’t much separation between them and the other three teams in the division. Baltimore is only a game and a half ahead of the Cleveland Browns who are in fourth place of the division. The Ravens realize this and that’s going to make them play better. They are going to need to play their best football to continue being the number one seed in the division. If a division rivalry game in late November doesn’t fire up this Ravens team, nothing will.
Lamar Jackson will make sure that his guys are ready to go out and compete just like he always does. He will have them ready to take down the Cleveland Browns and pick up another game on them.
2. Browns don’t score much
The Cleveland Browns have had an extremely tough time scoring the football in the past few weeks. In four of their last five games, the Browns have not been able to score more than 17 points one time. This is bad news for the Browns and great news for the Ravens. If the Ravens can shut down this Cleveland Browns offense just like other teams have had the past few weeks, they’re going to walk away with an easy victory.
1. Ravens win by two-plus touchdowns
This might come as a surprise to some people as division rivalry games are usually somewhat close. In this scenario, it will not be the case as the Ravens are significantly better than the Cleveland Browns and they’re going to show the world that on Sunday. This game will never really be closed and the Ravens are going to win by at least two touchdowns as they keep pushing their way toward taking the AFC North.
