Featured Game | Baltimore Ravens vs. Atlanta Falcons
Why the Ravens can coverBaltimore is getting accustomed to playing without Jackson, as it has been able to win two of its last three games without him on the field. Running back J.K. Dobbins has been outstanding in his two games since returning from an injury, racking up a combined 245 yards on 28 carries in those contests. The Ravens rank near the bottom of the NFL in passing yards per game, so they are fine with using their rushing attack to control the pace of the game.Atlanta is going to be without its starting quarterback as well, with Marcus Mariota hitting the IR last week due to knee problems. Rookie Desmond Ridder did not have a strong start in his debut last weekend, throwing for just 97 yards in a loss to New Orleans. The Falcons have only covered the spread twice in their last eight games and are riding a five-game road losing streak coming into this matchup. They have also covered the spread just once in their last 10 games against Baltimore. Why the Falcons can coverBaltimore’s offense was not able to get anything going without Jackson on the field last week, scoring just three points in a double-digit loss to Cleveland. Tyler Huntley completed just 17 of 30 passes for just 138 yards and an interception. Atlanta has one of the league’s top rushing attacks, which features rookie running back Tyler Allgeier. He rushed for 139 yards and a touchdown against New Orleans last week, averaging 8.2 yards per carry. The Falcons are just one game back of Tampa Bay in the NFC South standings, so they will be fully motivated for this contest. Baltimore has only covered the spread once in its last five games and is a team to avoid until Jackson is at full strength.
