NFL Week 16 odds, predictions and picks
Safid Deen: Ravens 17, Falcons 13
It’s been an offensive struggle for Baltimore without Lamar Jackson, as the Ravens have averaged 9.6 points in their last three games and lost the AFC North lead to the Bengals last week. They’ll muster up enough points and rely on their defense to beat the Falcons.
Victoria Hernandez: Ravens 20, Falcons 10
The Ravens aren’t going to let last week happen again. They scored a meager field goal in a loss to the Browns. If they do, in fact, get Lamar Jackson back, this should be a fairly easy win to shake off the dust over the lowly Falcons.
Jaylon Thompson: Falcons 17, Ravens 14
Will Lamar Jackson play this week? It is on the wish list of Ravens fans just ahead of Christmas with the playoffs in the balance. The Falcons also need a win to keep their slim NFC South hopes alive. Atlanta pulls the upset behind rookie quarterback Desmond Ridder and a Younghoe Koo game-winning field goal.
