The Jacksonville Jaguars looking to bounce back from consecutive losses when they face the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday Night Football. This will arguably be the toughest game remaining on their schedule, so they'll need to be fully focused if they want to have a shot at coming out on top.

The Ravens' defense ranks second in points allowed while their offense is fourth in points scored. However, they barely managed to beat the Los Angeles Rams in their 37-31 overtime win in Week 14. The Jags are arguably better, and more talented than the Rams, even if they don't always play like it. But if they can clean up mistakes that have plagued them the past two weeks, they might just pull off the upset.

Besides playing a clean game, Jacksonville will need their playmakers to step up on Sunday Night, and that includes Calvin Ridley on offense and Josh Allen on defense. Both have shown they can take over games but they're coming off somewhat quiet performances against the Browns. With that in mind, here are five predictions for the Jaguars' Week 15 game.

5. Rookie Antonio Johnson will get pick Lamar Jackson off

The Jags have gotten mixed production from their rookie class, with Anton Harrison being the only early-round selection who's gotten significant playing time. On the other hand, some of their late-round selections have stepped up. One of them is defensive back Antonio Johnson, who's been pressed into action due to injuries in the secondary.

Johnson has played 39 snaps on defense — most of them in the slot — the past two weeks. With Andre Cisco already been ruled out for Week 15, Johnson could once again see extended playing time. This time at safety. He'll make the most of his opportunities to showcase his skills by getting an interception off Lamar Jackson, his first one ever in the NFL.
