THE TEAM NEWS

BALTIMORE RAVENS

  • Baltimore’s impressive charge towards the play-offs continued as they remained in pole position to claim the #1 seed in the AFC as they produced another big victory against New York Jets.
  • Lamar Jackson threw five touchdown passes as his incredible season continued and the Ravens quarterback also highlighted his dual threat as he ran for 86 yards which saw him break Michael Vick’s NFL record for single-season rushing yards by a quarterback.
  • The Ravens will seal the top seed by beating Cleveland in this contest but they could be without left tackle Ronnie Stanley and linebacker Chris Board who remain in the concussion protocol having sat out last week’s win.

CLEVELAND BROWNS

  • Cleveland suffered a devastating loss at the hands of Arizona as their season looks likely to end prematurely with the Browns’ play-off hopes now on life support with them sitting at 6-8.
  • The Browns can still advance to the post-season but it would take a minor miracle and having struggled for consistency all season, even other results going their way in the final two matches of the season is unlikely to help them.
  • They host the team with the best record in the NFL in a game they must win but issues from last week’s game may boil over into this Week 16 clash after head coach Freddie Kitchens was involved in a sideline spat with wide receiver Jarvis Landry during their defeat to Arizona.

THE PREDICTION

Cleveland had high hopes heading into this season but they have under-performed despite possessing a talented roster and Baltimore are likely to bring their play-off hopes to an end here. The Ravens look the team to beat ahead of the post-season and are on a superb run of form having won 10 games in a row and with the Browns struggling to put consistent displays together, this looks set to be another tough afternoon for them with the Ravens able to run out comfortable winners.
