One of the best games for Week 16 of the NFL season will take place tonight, when the Baltimore Ravens face the Los Angeles Chargers in a possible postseason preview.

The Ravens have come alive of late behind Lamar Jackson, who has revitalized the team's offense. With the defense allowing just 18.1 points per game, head coach John Harbaugh will try to lead them to an upset victory.

It won't be an easy task for Baltimore though, as Los Angeles features one of the most balanced teams in the entire league. Phillip Rivers and Melvin Gordon are a formidable duo on offense, meanwhile Joey Bosa and Derwin James constantly provide impact plays on the other side of the football.

Although this showdown could come down to the final drive, ESPN believes the Chargers have an overwhelming 79.5 percent chance of winning the game.

If the Chargers win this matchup and the Kansas City Chiefs fall short against the Seattle Seahawks, then Los Angeles would have the top seed in the conference.

Baltimore and Los Angeles will kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET from StubHub Center.

The game will be on the NFL Network.
