The powerhouse Baltimore Ravens are 10-2. They enter the hostile environment where the Bills Mafia roam in Orchard Park, New York as heavy favorites. The Bills are 9-3.
This is a difficult game to make a confident prediction. Baltimore has rolled over some teams. They put 59 points up against Miami. They scored 59 points against Cincinnati, 41 against the Texans, 45 against the Chargers.
More impressive was the 37 points against the Patriots as they defeated the defending Superbowl Champions and 30 points being victorious over Seattle. They did enough to beat the strong 49ers team. This Ravens team is the real deal.
They’re on an 8 game winning streak. The entire team and the potential league MVP, quarterback Lamar Jackson have been the talk of the league for most of the season. Are they due for a letdown or will they continue their dream season?
When they won their first Superbowl they had a very average offense, but a Chicago Bears 1985 caliber defense. The second Superbowl win when they had the Harbaugh brothers coaching against each other the Ravens got hot in the playoffs. This current team is probably better than either of those teams because they are solid on both sides of the ball.
The Bills have not dominated anywhere near that level. They have been improving all season long. The football world was put on notice on Thanksgiving as they handled the Cowboys in Dallas making it look routine. Josh Allen is showing the world he is very much coach-able and at the rate, he is improving with his pure talent, look out NFL.
Bills pull off the upset as they begin peaking at the right time. \
Prediction: Bills 24 Ravens 21.
