Preview: Ravens Face Buccaneers in Key Home Game
The Baltimore Ravens will take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on December 16th, 2018, at M&T Bank Stadium. The Ravens will once again give Lamar Jackson the keys to the offense, as he’ll be starting his 5th career game. Quarterback, Joe Flacco, will be active for Sunday’s contest against Tampa Bay, but will likley ride the bench this week. Moreover, the Ravens currently stand at 7-6, while the Buccaneers hold at 5-8.
Quarterback, Lamar Jackson: 687 passing yards, 4 TD’s, and 3 INT’s
Running Back, Gus Edwards: 92 carries, 446 rushing yards, and 1 TD.
Wide Receiver, John Brown: 38 receptions, 672 recieving yards, and 5 TD’s.
After this week, the Ravens will face the Los Angles Chargers, and Cleveland Browns to finish off their regular season. On the other hand, the Buccaneers will end their season with games against Cowboys and Falcons. Baltimore seeks an AFC North title, and a playoff berth, as they currently hold the 6th seed, and trail a half game from the Pittsburgh Steelers for the division lead. Tampa Bay is placed at 3rd in the NFC South, and are likely going to miss the playoffs. My personal score prediction for this game is the Ravens dominate at home and pick up the win against the Buccaneers by a score of 27-10.
