Meanwhile, Ravens is ranked 2nd in AFC North. Their quarterback Joe Flacco has led his team with 18 touchdowns at 3,460 yards. Although the Ravens' offense is placed among the league's last 10 teams, Baltimore's solid defense, yielding only 19.8 points (7th), 102.4 rush yards (7th), yards (334.0) on average per game, gives their offensive lineup more opportunities to defeat stronger offensive teams. They are ranked among the top 10 offensive team in the league.
On the defensive end, the Pats continue to rank last in their rush defense, giving their opponents the opportunity to counter their top scoring offense. While New England makes up their defensive holes with relentless offensive plays, the Ravens are on a roll in winning every game since Week 12.
According to the two teams' offensive and defensive comparison, the Pats dominates in offense, but Ravens score higher in their defense. Thus, the game today would be a close match with the odds going towards New England.
