We are in the thick of the most wonderful time of year. Rivalling Christmas, the November slate of having football every day makes getting up and going from class to work back to class a little bit easier.
Tonight we get a good one. The underachieving LA Rams welcome the high flying Baltimore Ravens.
First the Ravens: There isn’t much you can say about Lamar Jackson besides that he is incredible. You can’t speak on players like that. You have to just watch. Lamar is riding the MVP wave and he brings along with him a loaded offense including, his hype man Mark Ingram, his security blanket Mark Andrews, his neophyte speedster Hollywood Brown, and sneaky good wide receiver group.
The Baltimore defense is no slouch. They are one season removed from being the top ranked group, and just when you expected a shoot out against the Texans last week we got a beat down. Earl Thomas has come right in and been the anchor and Marcus Peters has been great since his departure from LA. Peters gets his shot at revenge tonight so I expect him to be that much better.
Now onto LA: The Rams are a very solid team there is no doubting this. Something however has been a bit off with teams like LA, Philly, and Dallas to name a few. Jared Goff has 10 touchdowns to 11 interceptions, Todd Gurley hasn’t looked vintage, and for the most part the Rams have lost games this year you’d expect them to win. Aaron Donald won’t be enough, I’m afraid. The Rams may very well be running directly into a buzz saw in the Ravens.
Ravens get the W.
