Ravens vs. Giants preview:
The 2-3 Giants enter the game fresh off of a 23-16 loss at Green Bay last week. Eli Manning threw for 199 yards and one touchdown and Odell Beckham Jr. hauled in five catches for 56 yards and a touchdown. The Giants' offense was held to just 219 total yards however and gave up 406 to the Packers. The Giants are the losers of three straight.
The Ravens have lost two straight close games in a row. They fell 28-27 to the Raiders two weeks ago and 16-10 to Washington last week. Joe Flacco went 30-for-46 in the air for 210 yards and a score. Terrance West had a nice day on the ground with 95 yards rushing on just 11 carries.
The Ravens and Jets have met only four times during the regular season all-time and Baltimore owns a 3-1 advantage in the series.
Ravens vs. Giants prediction:
Manning and Beckham Jr. looked to be on the same page last week which is a great sign for the Giants. Baltimore's pass defense is the third best in the NFL however giving up just over 267 yards per game.
It helps that the Giants are at home, but Manning will have to take care of the football in this one. The Giants' 20th ranked pass defense will need to create a few turnovers as well, which they managed to do last week at Green Bay.
Giants 27, Ravens 24
