The Baltimore Ravens have turned to Lamar Jackson since Joe Flacco got injured and they have won 4 of these 5 games. Their only loss came against the Kansas City Chiefs and it was only by three points. Lamar Jackson is a dual-threat quarterback and he offers mobility. The offense has now become run-first but they are still moving the chains very well. On defense, the team is allowing just 18 points per game.
The Los Angeles Chargers are coming into this one with a win on their resume against Kansas on the road. They started the game without their star running back Melvin Gordon and wide receiver Keenan Allen and they still got the job done. The Chargers offense is really strong averaging 28.2 points per game and on the defensive side they are pretty good too giving up only 21.3 points per game. Philip Rivers is an MVP candidate with nearly 4000 passing yards, 31 touchdowns, and 8 interceptions.
Lamar Jackson is getting away with some of his bad decisions in recent weeks and it is high time he suffered from them. I believe that the Chargers’ defense will expose him while the offense will get the job done as usual.
