The Ravens are flying high after their instant-classic win at the Cleveland Browns on Monday Night Football in Week 14, but they'll have to turn their sights ahead quickly.
For the third straight game, the Ravens are facing a team with more rest than themselves. They'll host the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday afternoon, just six days after a grueling win in prime time.
Jacksonville has struggled mightily in 2020 - and that's putting it kindly. The Jaguars are 1-12, and they haven't won since their Week 1 shocking upset over the Colts. Their focus for much of 2020 has been on positioning themselves for a top quarterback in the 2021 NFL Draft, so while the players themselves will play hard, the truth is both organizations probably want to see a Ravens win on Sunday.
Lamar Jackson is coming off an AFC Offensive Player of the Week award after his incredible Monday night performance, but things might be a little trickier in Week 15. Three wide receivers, including Marquise "Hollywood" Brown, are currently on the reserve/COVID-19 list for Baltimore. The Ravens hope all three - considered close contacts - will continue to test negative and return in time for Sunday's game.
Week 15 also represents a reunion of sorts for a couple of Ravens defenders. Both Calais Campbell and Yannick Ngakoue played on the Jacksonville defensive line for the past few seasons, and both were traded away in the offseason. Now, they're both in Baltimore, and Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew knows they will be coming after him all game long.
It may not have the same feel as Monday Night Football on the road against a division rival, but Sunday is still a critical game in Baltimore. Here's how to watch.
