Week 16 vs. Baltimore

This will be an interesting game as their are many in the media who believe the Ravens are going to be a strong team this year.

The Ravens haven’t faced the Chargers on the road since the 2012 season and it’s hard to imagine what they’ll bring into this game, though it’s possible that Lamar Jackson will be the team’s quarterback.

He may have something to prove to the Chargers after reports came out that someone within the organization asked him to test as a wide receiver at the scouting combine.

The Ravens clearly felt he can be a quarterback in the league as they traded up to get him late in the first round of the draft.

If Jackson is the starter, it could be quite difficult for the Chargers to prepare for him. Many of these exciting rookie quarterbacks who have the kind of skillset that Jackson possesses experience quick success in the league. Remember Robert Griffin III’s rookie year?

However, if Joe Flacco is still the team’s quarterback at this point, the Chargers have a much more clear path to victory.

All of that being said, the Chargers are going to win this game regardless as they are just the better team and will send the home crowd home happy with a big victory over a team that could be in contention for a Wild Card at this point in the season.

Rivers will have a big day here, throwing for over 350 yards and at least three touchdowns against the Ravens’ defense.

Prediction: Chargers 28, Ravens 19
