Baltimore Ravens will have a tough time staying at the top of the AFC North. They lead the division right now, but they have a much better opponent than the Steelers in Week 14. And, their last game with Pittsburgh will take place at Heinz Field. Not a favorable schedule for Baltimore.
On the other hand, Patriots again don’t have to worry about somebody taking over the lead in their division. They are chasing the number one overall seed in the AFC, so the road to Super Bowl goes through Foxboro. Raiders have an important matchup with the Chiefs on Thursday, and that gives them a great chance of surpassing them with a favorable result on Sunday.
Ravens offense was on point against a decent Dolphins team. Baltimore is coming off a huge win on Sunday as Joe Flacco had his best game of the season against Miami. He always plays well against the Patriots, and we expect him to show up on Sunday.
New England had a good day against the Rams, especially on the defensive side of the ball. They were putting the pressure on Goff all day long and recorded one of their best performances of the season. They’ll need to do the same against Flacco who is on fire right now.
Ravens are always giving a tough time to the Patriots, but this isn’t the same squad from 2014 and 2013. Ravens are just not on that same level, and we don’t see them going into Foxboro and winning this game against the Patriots. Brady will lead his team to 27:17 win at Gillette Stadium.
