Heading into this game, the statistics are showing that the road team has won each of the previous four playoff meetings between the Ravens and the Titans. Baltimore enters as a -3.5 point favorite with the O/U set at 54 points.
Reigning MVP Lamar Jackson and the Ravens (11-5) are making their third straight playoff trip and ninth in 13 years under coach John Harbaugh.
Jackson, who is beginning to show championship form again, has thrown 11 touchdown passes and rushed for four scores during Baltimore’s five-game winning streak to end the regular season. He comes in completing 242 of 376 passes for 2,757 yards with 26 touchdowns and nine interceptions.
Jackson, 24, has also rushed for 1,005 yards with another seven TDs.
He’s looking forward to Sunday’s game after the adversity the team had to face during the regular season.
“We’re motivated from what went on, the adversity with the COVID-19 outbreak – some guys missing games because of it,” Jackson said. “Our team is just hungry right now, and that’s just what we need. We need to be hungry; we need to be doubted. I feel like we play better like that.”
Is Derrick Henry The Ravens Kryptonite?
Meanwhile, Tennessee (11-5) are also making their third playoff appearance in four seasons. When they entertain the Ravens on Sunday, the Titans will be playing in the playoff for a second straight campaign under third-year coach Mike Vrabel.
Ryan Tannehill has gone 315 of 481 on completed passes for 3,819 yards and 33 touchdowns.
Running back Derrick Henry carried the ball 378 times and had 2,027 yards rushing during the regular season to become the eighth player in NFL history to reach 2,000.
“We all know what’s at stake. Win or go home, and when you win you keep playing, said Henry, who led the league with 17 TD runs.
“Derrick Henry is one of the best running backs to ever play this game, and he’s in the zone right now,” Ravens defensive end Calais Campbell said. “So, yes – I take pride in the challenge of lining up and trying to shut him down.”
