Riding in on a three game win streak, the 6-6 Los Angeles Rams travel cross country Sunday December 10 to take on the Baltimore Ravens in M&T Stadium in 10 a.m. PST kickoff. With a win, L.A. can crawl above .500 for the first time since Week 1 and is coming off wins over the Cleveland Browns, Arizona Cardinals, and Seattle Seahawks.

The 9-3 Ravens are leading the NFC North and have won six of the past seven games, including two of their last three, knocking off the Los Angeles Chargers and Cincinnati Bengals, while losing to Cleveland.

As per numbers from Pro Football Reference, Baltimore has one of the top overall defenses in the NFL, ranking in the Top 5 in points allowed (15.6, 1st), yards per game (274, 2nd), yards per play (4.2, 1st), and percentage of drives that end in a score (28.5%, 2nd). Against the pass, while they do lead the NFL in sacks (47) and don’t blitz much (22.7%, t24th) nor create constant pressure (20.6%, 22nd). The Ravens QB hits vs. knockdowns are a bit strange. On one hand, they have 87 QB hits (rank 4th), but have only 38 QB knockdowns (rank 15th). They are slightly more susceptible to the run, giving up 102.3 yards per game (11th) at a 4.3 yards (12th) per tote clip.

On offense, the Rams must keep QB Lamar Jackson from extending and creating plays. The Ravens offense is built around his ability to run with the football, so solid edge play on run options is big “must have”. The Rams will be challenged in this area, not only because of the inexperience of edges Michael Hoecht and Byron Young, but also because both have been nicked up and limited in practice this week.

Jackson is not just dangerous as a runner, he completes 68 percent of his passes. Rookie Zay Flowers and ex-Ram Odell Beckham are his top two targets. In the past, the Ravens have made extensive use of their tight end Mark Andrews, but he is out with injury. Jackson wants to throw, not just take off running, he’s been sacked 29 times. L.A. allowed mobile QB’s to give them fits earlier in the season, keeping pocket integrity while pressuring Jackson is a must.

Can the Rams knock off a meaningful opponent and ride the momentum into the playoffs? Here’s how to find out if you can’t go the game in person.
