The New England Patriots put their undefeated record on the line tonight when they take on the AFC North-leading Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium.
New England is 8-0, and boasts a defense that has been historically good, allowing fewer than 10.0 points per game. Quarterback Tom Brady isn’t putting up the best numbers of his career, but he’s led an offense that is as efficient as ever even if they aren’t lighting up the scoreboard every week.
Baltimore has taken an unexpectedly huge leap forward this year with second-year quarterback Lamar Jackson at the helm. The Ravens are 5-2 and have about as explosive of an offense as there’s been in the league this year.
ESPN’s computer model has released its prediction for the Ravens-Patriots game.
ESPN’s computer model believes that New England has the edge tonight. The computer model gives the Patriots a 62.3 percent chance to win the game.
Bill Belichick and John Harbaugh have faced off in the regular season and postseason many times before. But as he does with most teams, Belichick has the historic advantage. His Patriots are 6-3 against Harbaugh’s Ravens in all games since 200, and only one of those losses came in the regular season.
Tonight promises to be another exciting matchup.
The game will be played at 8:20 p.m. EST and will air on NBC.
