Baltimore Ravens – A Closer Look:

Baltimore trailed the Browns at halftime last week, but got things together in the second half for their 28-7 win. A strong third quarter sealed the victory as quarterback Joe Flacco went 10 for 12 in passing during that frame and made good on a pair of touchdown passes. Flacco added another touchdown pass in the final quarter to Breshad Perriman for some insurance. The quarterback finished the game 30for 41 for 296 yards in the air. Baltimore has won their last two games, both at home, after dropping four straight. Their recent spurt sees them in first place in the AFC North.

They’ll be facing a red-hot Dallas team which hasn’t lost since the New York Giants beat them on opening day and have eight straight wins behind them. The Ravens will have to try and control quarterback Dak Prescott and fellow rookie Ezekiel Elliott, who is proving to be one of the league’s best running backs. Baltimore’s defense leads the league at the moment as it concedes just 281.1 yards per game on average and will need to be at its best on Sunday. They’ll be up against the Cowboys’ 15th-ranked pass defense, which gives up 246 yards per game in the air.

Dallas Cowboys – A Closer Look:

The reason for Dallas’ hot streak is basically the play of Prescott and Elliott. Prescott gained 319 yards in the air in Pittsburgh with a pair of touchdown passes while Elliott broke the 100-yard barrier of the fifth time this season. He ran for 114 yards and two late touchdowns to come from behind to down the Steelers 35-30. Dallas leads the NFL in rushing with 161 yards per game on average, mainly due to Elliot. The rushing game will be severely tested by Baltimore’s tight defense this weekend though.

Baltimore concedes the fewest total yards in the league this season and that includes rushing yards at just 71.3 per outing. If Elliott struggles, Prescott may have to look for targets to pass to if he switches to an aerial attack. That might be easier than it sounds though since Baltimore gives up only 210.2 yards in the air per outing. The Cowboys are 3-1 straight up at home this season and 3-0-1 ATS.

Next up for both teams:

  • Baltimore home to Cincinnati Sunday, November 27
  • Dallas home to Washington Thursday, November 24
