Baltimore falls beneath .500 after losing 23-20 to the Titans two weeks earlier and dropping to 4-5. In that game, Joe Flacco went 34-52 for 261 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions and the team outgained the Titans 341-257 total yards, had more 1st downs with 24 conversions to Tennessee’s 14, and had more ball possession with 32:22 on the clock. Green Bay manages to break their losing streak last week by once again beating the Bears 23-16 to climb above .500 and go 5-4. Brett Hundley went 18-25 for 212 yards and a score while outgaining the Bears 342-323 total yards, had more 1st downs with 18 conversions to Chicago’s 14, and had more possession time with 33:53 on the ball.
Our Free NFL Prediction: Green Bay made their first win without Aaron Rodgers to end their losing streak last week although this week might be more difficult for them. For starters, their leading RB Aaron Jones is doubtful to play while their other RB, Ty Montgomery, is questionable. They are also going to be missing OT Bryan Bulaga, DT Quinton Dial, and safety Morgan Burnett. The Ravens loss was by a small margin but it was mainly because they failed to capitalize on drives which allowed the Titans to steal it. Coming into this game, the Packers might have the home-field advantage and will definitely be fighting to stay in the league for playoffs but I’m not sure they’ll be winning this; especially against the Ravens’ defence which is pretty solid. Take the Ravens to cover.
