Strong Run Teams Look to Get the Edge


Teams hope to use their rushing games to their advantage when the Baltimore Ravens visit the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars will each hope to use their strong ground game to their advantage when they match up on Sunday.

The Ravens are second in the league in rush yards, averaging 162.8 rush yards per game. Baltimore is led by quarterback Lamar Jackson, who has rushed for 666 yards and three touchdowns, leading the team to a 7-3 record.

The Jaguars also have a solid run game, averaging 139.6 rush yards a game for seventh in the league. Running back Travis Etienne leads with 725 rushing yards and four touchdowns, with Jacksonville sitting at 3-7.

Both teams have solid ground games, but the winner may come down to who can stop the run better.

Baltimore’s Defense Dominates

The Ravens are on a four-game win streak, and part of that is due to their defense.

During Baltimore’s win streak, the Ravens held opponents to 14.5 points a game, with the Ravens allowing opponents to average 19.9 points a game this season.

Though the Jaguars are strong in the ground game, the Ravens have the third-ranked rushing defense, allowing an average of 86.4 rushing yards a game.

In Baltimore’s last win over Carolina, the Panthers managed 36 rush yards on the ground.

The Ravens have also recovered eight total fumbles, sixth in the league, including four in the past four games.

Baltimore’s strong run defense should make it tough for the Jaguars to do much damage on the ground.

Jacksonville Looks To Bounce Back

The Jaguars return from their bye having lost six of their last seven games.

In three of those last four games, Jacksonville has failed to get past the 20-point mark, scoring 17 points in three of those games.

With Baltimore likely focusing much of its attention on Etienne, who has rushed for over 100 yards in three of his past four games, the Jaguars will need to turn to the passing game, which averages 222.6 yards a game.

Quarterback Trevor Lawrence has thrown for 2,334 yards, 13 touchdowns and six interceptions on a 65.2 completion percentage while Christian Kirk leads the wide receivers with 679 yards and seven touchdowns.

In the Jaguars’ last loss against the Chiefs, Lawrence threw for 259 yards and two touchdowns, with Kirk recording nine catches for 105 yards and two touchdowns.

Lawrence and Kirk’s connection will be a key piece in Jacksonville’s offense with Etienne going against Baltimore’s strong run defense.

Baltimore vs Jacksonville Prediction

Although Jacksonville will be at home and coming off a bye, Baltimore is the slight favorite in this matchup. Both teams have relied on their strong run game recently, with the Ravens seeing more success.

Baltimore’s defense is superior to Jacksonville’s, with the Ravens also having an easier time scoring. The Ravens should add to their win streak with a victory over the Jaguars on the road.
