Baltimore at Tennessee
After some early-season struggles, the Ravens have found a consistent offense and appear to be a dangerous threat heading into the playoffs. They have found consistency with J.K. Dobbins playing the lead role, but with Gus Edwards being a strong complementary back as the Ravens have run for 191 yards per game between the two players over the last two weeks. Having a consistent running game outside of Lamar Jackson has also done wonders for the quarterback who has rushed for 80 yards or more in four of his last five games. If there is any concern for the Ravens it would be that they may be a little banged up on the offensive line as Patrick Mekari and D.J. Fluker are both questionable heading into this week.
The Titans weak spot continues to be the defensive line and winning in the trenches. The Titans defense has been shredded as of late as we saw David Johnson rush for 84 yards on just 14 carries and two weeks ago Green Bay run for 218 yards on 30 carries. This has largely been the theme of the Titans season in that they have been good enough to shut down poor running attacks, but when they face some of the better rushing attacks in the NFL they struggle mightily. If there is some glimmer of opportunity for the Titans it is that they largely shut down the Ravens back in Week 11 holding the Ravens to just 78 yards on 20 carries which was one of their better performances of the season.
