The Ravens will win a statement game

San Diego has not been impressive the past five weeks, losing their first three during that stretch then narrowly beating Oakland and St. Louis. With a struggling offensive line and a regressing defense, the Chargers are not playing their best football.

Further, traveling cross-country for a game is always difficult. The Chargers have traveled cross-country twice this year, a win over the E.J. Manuel led Bills and a brutal loss to the Miami Dolphins.

Those two factors, paired with a solid Ravens performance at home, should give the Ravens a big win. The Ravens have played very well offensively their last six quarters, and they match up well defensively too. In a big game with significant playoff implications, the Ravens should take care of business at home.

More to the point, I expect the Ravens to win big. They are the superior team and they’re at home. All the factors are on their side, so expect a big win for the Ravens.
