Rams vs. Ravens Recent History – First Meeting Since 2015

Due to franchise movement, the history is strange and limited in this series. Baltimore faces Los Angeles for the first time since the Rams moved to California in 2016. The last meeting was a 16-13 Ravens home win way back in 2015. Against notable same teams, Los Angeles has losses to Pittsburgh and Seattle, who both lost to Baltimore.

Ravens vs. Rams Final Thoughts and Pick

Red-hot with six straight wins, Baltimore can match its franchise-best winning streak of seven set during its Super Bowl XXXV championship season in 2000. Over the last four games, Baltimore has topped Seattle, New England, Cincinnati and Houston by a 39-14 average final score. Take out the 49-13 beat down of the Bengals and the numbers show Baltimore winning 27-11 against three teams that own a 23-7 combined record.

Los Angeles played well with four new players on their offensive line last week. Not only did they help get the Rams ground game going but they also didn’t allow a sack. The O-Line will need to be good again as the Ravens defense had seven QB sacks last week. Baltimore has been blitz crazy recently and Jared Goff isn’t at his best under pressure. Out since a Week 8 concussion, Rams WR Brandon Cooks is on track to return.

Pick: Ravens -3

Season Record: 7-20
