The Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars clash in Week 15. Formerly a divisional rivalry the likes of the Ravens-Steelers, this matchup has lost quite a bit of its luster over nearly the last two decades they’ve been split into different divisions. But with something on the line for Baltimore and Jacksonville likely needing a win to keep the coaching staff in place for another year, there’s plenty riding on this game.

Could this be an upset brewing or will the Ravens take care of their business and secure a big win? Take a look at our Ravens vs. Jaguars final score predictions below to see what we think will happen.

Matthew Stevens:

Ravens 31 - Jaguars 27 Baltimore should have this game in hand. They're clearly the better team and they're starting to heat up in a lot of ways. But with so many key defensive players out due to injury this week, Jacksonville has a shot to not only make this close but potentially create an upset here. Still, I have to go with the Ravens, with their veteran leadership and coaching, to get the job done. They absolutely need this win and while not as pretty as many would have hoped, they pick up their ninth win of the season.

Robert Sobus

Ravens 41 - Jaguars 17 The Ravens are coming off a thriller win against the Browns and will most likely need to win their final three games to make the playoffs. Going 2-1 could knock them out of playoff contention depending on what happens with Miami, Indianapolis, and Cleveland over those few weeks. The Ravens are playing with some swagger and quarterback Lamar Jackson is beginning to look like his 2019 self. I expect Baltimore to score fast and take the Jaguars out of the contest early.

Kevin Oestreicher:

Ravens 30 - Jaguars 17 This game should be an easy win for the Ravens. However, there is no such thing as an easy game in the NFL and on any given week an upset could happen. Baltimore has to be careful to not overlook Jacksonville, but they should be able to contain Gardner Minshew and company despite potentially being down a plethora of cornerbacks. On offense, Lamar Jackson should get into the end zone using both his arm and his legs, setting up a very nice performance against a team that has generally struggled throughout the year. Despite that, this is still a must-win game for the Ravens.

James Trefry:

Ravens 24 - Jaguars 3 Baltimore gets off to a hot start scoring on their first two drives to take a 10-0 lead after the first quarter. The second quarter will be dominated by the defense with a pick-six and two fumble recoveries. The second half will be the J.K. Dobbins show. With a big lead -- up by three scores -- the entire second half, I can't imagine the Ravens would want to keep Lamar Jackson out on the field for too much longer, potentially earning some early rest for the starting quarterback.

Neil Dutton:

Ravens 27 - Jaguars 7 The hapless Jaguars defense won’t be able to live with the Ravens on the ground, so Baltimore’s efforts to establish the run early will not go unrewarded. The combo of Lamar Jackson, J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards will do the bulk of the heavy lifting, which aided by some turnovers by the Jaguars offense will put this game out of reach early.

Alex Bente:

Ravens 30 - Jaguars 27 The Ravens may have spent up a lot of their “mojo credit” against the Browns, or maybe Lamar Jackson really is a magical football wizard who’s finally capable of pulling unbelievable come-from-behind victories out of the frozen winter air. But with a defense that’s licking its wounds and an offense that is boom-or-bust, we can’t be sure what to expect from the Ravens after last week. Regardless, it certainly remains to be seen whether Baltimore can keep this champion-style fight going in the coming weeks, and the lowly Jaguars coming to town presents a key test. I think the Ravens will take care of business, being the more talented, more dynamic team overall. But if they overlook an inferior opponent and play an ugly, mistake-filled game (something they're certainly prone to doing) this one could come down to the wire, leaving Justin Tucker to once again win with his superb leg. It shouldn’t be a nail-biter but I’m not convinced we’ll see anything else, so I’ll take the Ravens in a close one today.
