What’s at stake? For the Chargers, it is a chance to get back in the playoff picture as they are starting to fall behind. For The Ravens, they control the first seed in the AFC and with the schedule they face in the back end they need this victory.

Who’s better? Ravens. This team is suffocating on defense and can pick you apart on offense.

Matchup to watch: Flowers/Beckham Jr./Bateman vs. Chargers secondary. The Chargers have the worst secondary in the league, so it will be interesting to see them against this explosive trio.

Chargers win if: the defense gives Lamar Jackson a headache all game by putting consistent pressure on him. 

Fantasy sleeper: Keenan Allen. Why go with anyone else? Allen is on a mission this season.

Prediction: The Ravens are a good football team and they will go into their bye week 9-3 as a tough ending to the schedule awaits them. Ravens 35-24.
