Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Los Angeles Rams vs Baltimore Ravens
The Los Angeles Rams travel across the country to take on the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium on Thursday night. The Ravens come to town with a 1-0 record after beating the Chicago Bears at the Hall of Fame game to kick-off the NFL preseason. This week two match-up features two of the NFL’s top teams. The Ravens missed the playoffs last season after finishing second in the AFC North with a 9-7 record while the 11-4 Los Angeles Rams took the NFC North but lost to the Atlanta Falcons in the wild-card game ending their first winning season since 2003.
Los Angeles Rams's Latest Performance :
The Los Angeles Rams have settled back into their old digs in LA quite nicely. They have one of the best seasons in over a decade and seem poised to make a run at the title this year representing the NFC West. They put up some impressive offensive stats at 30 points per game and ranked 10th with 239 passing yards per game. The Rams are diligently searching for a solid back-up to quarterback Jared Goff who was elected to his first pro bowl in only his second season after being drafted in the first round of the draft a couple of years ago.
Baltimore Ravens's Latest Performance :
The Baltimore Ravens have started 2018 on a good note winning their first preseason game out of the gate. It’s tough to miss the playoffs after going 9-7 and taking second place in the division. They missed the playoffs by a last-second touchdown against the Cincinnati Bengals in week 17 which made it that much tougher.
Head coach John Harbough is entering his eleventh season with the team along with starting quarterback Joe Flacco. Together, they’ve missed the playoffs the past three seasons and feel this season they’ll get back into the playoffs with a solid defense and a returning offense that can put up points.
