With Ravens, No Lead Is Safe

The Ravens are the NFL version of the closer who leads the league in blown saves and homers allowed per inning! They just can't close the deal!

This season, they are 4-3 in that same scenario. That’s a .571 winning percentage.
Baltimore has been outscored 65-20 in the second half in losses to the Dolphins, Bills and Giants.
Can Thursday Save Brady?
This is the third time during his NFL career that Tom Brady has found himself at the helm of a 3-4 club. The 2002 Patriots finished 9-7 and missed the playoffs. However, the 2001 Patriots went 11-5 and won the Super Bowl.

Perhaps a TNF game is just what the doctor ordered to get Brady and the Buccaneers turned around. He’s 14-3 SU all-time on Thursdays during his NFL career. Brady also hasn’t lost three games in a row since a career-high four-game skid in 2002.

Ravens vs Buccaneers Prediction
Last season, Tampa Bay was the NFL’s top run defense, allowing 67.43 yards per game on the ground. This season, the Buccaneers’ defense is surrendering 118.29 YPG rushing. That’s not a recipe for success against a Baltimore team that is built to run the football.
