Baltimore Ravens looking to maintain their hot streak

The Ravens are on a two-game winning streak at the moment. Confidence is high within the Ravens’ dressing room after last week’s 47-42 win over AFC North rivals Cleveland Browns. Lamar Jackson put in a memorable display to silence his doubters, scoring one passing touchdown and two rushing touchdowns.

He will be eager to build on that performance with another eye-catching display against an underperforming Jaguars team in Week 15. However, the Ravens defense will need to be at alert in order to thwart the likes of Gardner Minshew and James Robinson.

Jacksonville Jaguars start as clear underdogs on Sunday

Head coach Doug Marrone really has a few positives to take away from the ongoing 2020 NFL season. His team are 1-12 heading into Week 15 with no clear strategy moving forward. They have lost 12 consecutive games so far and have been struggling with injuries off late.

Quarterback Gardner Minshew returned to the starting lineup last weekend. However, he could not lead them to a win against the rampant Tennessee Titans led by Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry. The Jags will need a miracle to pull off a win at the M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday.

Lamar Jackson showed flashes of his NFL MVP calibre in last week’s win over the Browns. The Florida-born quarterback will be in the limelight once again as the Ravens continue to challenge for a playoff spot this season. A win against the Jaguars should be a mere formality. Unless, of course, Gardner Minshew opines otherwise.
