Joe Flacco is listed as doubtful for this game and it looks like the third start for Lamar Jackson.
The Ravens are on a two game winning streak. They’ve gone 2-0 with Jackson as the quarterback. This is Jackson’s first start on the road.
Gus Edwards has had back to back games with over 100 rushing yards. The rookie running back should get a lot of action this week, as Alex Collins was put on injured reserve.
Injuries could play a big role in this game. Tony Jefferson is out for this game. Chuck Clark and Anthony Levine Sr. will fill in for him. James Hurst is doubtful for the game.
The Atlanta Falcons are 4-7 but they have the fourth best passing attack in the NFL. The Ravens pass defense needs to step up in this game.
Baltimore and Atlanta seldom play each other. The Ravens lead the series 3-2 and won the last game 29-7 in 2014.
The Ravens only win in Atlanta came in 1999.
The Falcons are a fairly one dimensional team. They have one of the worst rushing offenses, at least statistically. If the Ravens can stop the run, the pass rush can be a focal point of their attack.
Mark Andrews has emerged as the Ravens most productive tight end. He had a 74 yard gain last week. The season totals have been fairly impressive. He has 23 receptions for 337 yards and two touchdowns.
Speaking of reception statistics, Willie Snead has 50 receptions. He leads the Ravens in this category.
The Ravens defense has taken some bumps along the way however they still rank first in terms of points allowed per game and yards allowed per game.
The Falcons give up a lot of points. In 4 games they have given up 31 or more points. Their season average is 27.9 points allowed per game.
Lamar Jackson has yet to throw for 200 yards in a game but this could be the week he does it. The Falcons don’t have a great run defense or pass defense. The Ravens run game could open big plays for Jackson as a passer.
One of the most glaringly alarming stats is that the Ravens are -6 in the turnover ratio. That is a major concern moving forward.
