Falcons vs Ravens Highlights
The Falcons are one of many teams entering a new era this year. In his second year without Matt Ryan, who was traded to the Indianapolis Colts during the off-season, Arthur Smith is preparing to lead the team. With Ryan’s departure, veteran Marcus Mariota or rookie Desmond Ridder will be responsible for leading the Falcons to a winning season at quarterback. Ryan was the franchise’s all-time passing leader and a former league MVP. What chance do these two sharpshooters have against Lamar Jackson?
The Ravens’ defense has been the team’s calling card for years, thanks to the leadership of NFL greats like Ed Reed, Ray Lewis, and Terrell Suggs. Since Louisville’s Lamar Jackson was drafted first overall in 2018, however, it is the offense that has consistently ignited the NFL with remarkable running and passing plays.
Due to playing in different NFL conferences, these two teams don’t face each other very often. The Ravens have won the last two matchups handily, and their overall record now stands at 4-2 in their favor.
In this matchup, the Ravens are heavy favorites, and the Falcons will need stellar play from their quarterback to pull off the upset. The Ravens should put up big points against the Falcons if everyone on offense is healthy and in sync, thanks to offensive coordinator Wink Martindale. NFL betting odds should reflect this, so play it safe and favor the Ravens in this one.
