While technically not a must-win game since there are some scenarios where the Baltimore Ravens can stay alive with a loss, beating the New York Giants helps immensely. And everyone here at Ravens Wire believes that’s what will happen in Week 16, though some think it’ll be close while others are preparing for a blowout.
If Baltimore takes care of business and New York today, they have a few scenarios that could see them standing in the No. 7 seed by the evening. The Ravens have been playing better football lately and should be able to outmuscle the Giants, especially on their own turf, but there’s no such thing as a “gimme” in football.
Can the Ravens continue their winning streak another week or will they choke at the least opportune time? Let’s see what all the contributors at Ravens Wire have to say.
Ravens 40 - Giants 13 Baltimore has found their stride offensively after looking pretty bleak earlier in the season. The offensive line has finally started to come together, quarterback Lamar Jackson is becoming more accurate while playing a lot looser recently, and the combo of J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards is crushing opposing defenses. Even the Ravens' defense, which has had to overcome a long list of injuries, is starting to get healthier at the same time the pass rush is heating up. On the opposite side of the ball this week are the Giants, who shouldn't be discounted because of their record. But it would be a lie to say New York can stand toe-to-toe with Baltimore if everything else was equal and the Ravens do what they do best. With such a disparity in talent, swagger, physicality, coaching ability, and reasons to play tough; the Giants will be the latest Ravens victim as Baltimore's offense tops 40 points and the defense shuts down the run while battering quarterback Daniel Jones into mistakes.
Ravens 34 - Giants 20 The Ravens will ultimately defeat the Giants keeping their playoff hopes alive. Both teams are fighting for a playoff spot but Baltimore will prove to be too tough an opponent for the Giants.
Ravens 33 - Giants 23 Both the Ravens and Giants will have something to play for on Sunday which should make this a good game. However, with Baltimore playing great football and having momentum heading into this game, it should be tough for New York to knock them off. The Giants will come to play and keep it competitive, but in the end, Baltimore should come out of Week 16 with a win
Ravens 27 - Giants 10 The Giants' offense has struggled to generate anything in recent weeks, and this week will be no exception. Lamar Jackson will lead them past the G Men with relative ease, despite a comparatively quiet game on the ground.
Ravens 36 - Giants 17 Baltimore’s confidence is growing and they are starting to fire on all cylinders, in spite of weekly injuries and active roster reshuffling. The lowly Giants may still be in the playoff hunt but they will be no match for a team that’s leap and bounds above them in so many ways. This game will be over early as the Ravens continue to get stronger and make their push toward the playoffs.
Ravens 19 - Giants 9 The Ravens will kick 3 first-half field goals to be up 9-0 at halftime. They then open the second half with a touchdown drive. New York will answer with a TD of their own with a failed 2-point conversion. The two teams will trade field goals in the final quarter to make it 19-9 the final
