Titans at Ravens review

Tennessee Titans (6-3) at Baltimore Ravens (6-3)

Time: noon, Nov. 22, CBS

Location: M&T Bank Stadium Baltimore, MD.

Line: Ravens -6.0

The Tennessee Titans will be heading back to Baltimore in a rematch of last year’s divisional round playoffs. The Titans are coming off a Thursday night loss in Week 9 to a division rival, falling 34-17 to the Indianapolis Colts. The Titans will be missing some key players in this week’s matchup due to injuries. According to the Tennessee Titans’ Jim Wyatt, the Titans will be without OLB Jadeveon Clowney, WR Adam Humphries, CB Adoree’ Jackson, OG Rodger Safford, DL Larrell Murchison and TE MyCole Pruit. The Ravens are coming off a Sunday night loss to the New England Patriots in a rainstorm last week.

Titans Keys to Victory

1. Pass Rush: The Titans will need to pressure Lamar Jackson and get their hands on him. Making Jackson force quick throws could lead him to throwing inaccurate passes and interceptions. The Titans pass rush has struggled so far this year. They will be without Clowney, the star free agent from this past offseason, due to an injury.

2. Stopping the Run: The Ravens use multiple backs (Mark Ingram, JK Dobbins and Gus Edwards). There is also the threat of Jackson running. The Titans defense will have to slow them down if they want to pick up a gusty road win on Sunday.

3. Protecting the Ball: The Ravens secondary and defense are one of the best at creating turnovers. Cornerbacks Marlon Humphrey and Marcus Peters are true ballhawks. Titan QB Ryan Tannehill and company will need to look out for these two and protect the ball.

Ravens Keys to Victory

1. Run game: The Ravens will need to get their running game back on track if they want to beat the Titans on Sunday. If they can get their running game back on track, they should have a good day.

2. Limiting King Henry: The Ravens had a hard time slowing down Patriots running backs last week. This week they will be going up against the best running back in the NFL. They will have to contain the King Derrick Henry if they want a change for revenge on Sunday.

3. Discipline: The Ravens have been kicking themselves with the amount of penalties they have been committing in their games this season. Last week against the Patriots, they committed 8 penalties for over 60 yards. They will need to clean that up to stay successful for the rest of the season.

My Prediction

The Titans will have to make up for the injuries that they are dealing with. This game could really go in direction for both teams. The Ravens are dealing with a slew of injuries on their own. In the end, the Titans will have to much ground to make up and will struggle to stop the Ravens run game.

Ravens 30, Titans 24
