Last Wednesday’s loss to Mike Tomlin’s Pittsburgh Steelers will not be easy to digest for John Harbaugh. The Baltimore Ravens coach finds his team on a 6-5 record heading into their Week 13 clash. They are third in the AFC North Division table behind the Steelers and the Cleveland Browns.

Meanwhile, Mike McCarthy’s Dallas Cowboys are at the bottom of the NFC East Division with a 3-8 record. They will look to improve on last week’s performance against the Washington Football Team as they push to end the 2020 season on a positive note. Here’s a detailed look at both teams, along with injury updates and Week 13 Game Day predictions.

Can Lamar Jackson-less Baltimore Ravens secure a much-needed win?

Recent reports from within the Ravens camp indicate that Lamar Jackson will be removed from the IR/COVID-19 list. He could make his return on Tuesday night after missing out on the loss against the Steelers. Lamar is having a rather average season with respect to his performance last year.

He will look to lead his team to a morale-boosting win against the Cowboys as the battle in the AFC North heats up. In addition to that, the focus will also be on 32-year-old veteran Dez Bryant, who faces off against his former employers. Coach John Harbaugh will want his players to step up and make a statement win in Week 13.

Mike McCarthy’s Dallas Cowboys can pull off a major upset in Week 13

It’s difficult to say what the atmosphere in the Dallas Cowboys locker room is like at the moment. They are at the bottom of the NFC East and face an uphill battle of making the playoffs. Backup QB Andy Dalton and WRs CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper will be key for the Cowboys this week.

Coach McCarthy will need his underperforming defense to step up. The likes of DeMarcus Lawrence, Xavier Woods, Aldon Smith, and Randy Gregory will have to put in a solid shift to thwart the Ravens offense led by dual-threat QB Lamar Jackson.

After some bad fortune in recent weeks, the Ravens find themselves at the risk of missing the playoffs. They are in dire need of a win in order to keep pace with Baker Mayfield-led Cleveland Browns.

The Cowboys, who are dealing with injury and performance issues themselves are the perfect prey for the Ravens. With Lamar Jackson back in the picture, it should be a resounding win for the home team.
