5. What’s your prediction for the game?
"Give me the Ravens. I think it will be close. The reason I’m going with the Ravens is that the pass defense has been so good this season. Seven of the eight quarters this year have been controlled by the second rated pass defense in football. I think they limit your big plays, and pick off Bortles once or twice. If the Browns did not give us a wake up call, I’d say the Jaguars would bring the Ravens down to earth. Baltimore has a history of embarrassing early season losses. I think they dodged that last week and are going to be focused."
Chris doesn’t give a score, but he does pick the Ravens and I can’t really disagree. He predicts a couple interceptions for Bortles and that wouldn’t surprise me either.
It’s interesting that he discusses some “embarrassing” early season losses for the Ravens – it’s become such a common occurrence for the Jaguars that it’s hard to pity any other franchise at this point.
