How to Watch Baltimore Ravens at Buffalo Bills

In the brilliant, albeit short NFL career of Lamar Jackson, it's still weird to think he's never played a game in the snow. Come to think of it, he has never played any game in the snow. Guess that's what happens when you grow up in the Miami area and go to school at Louisville. This might become a problem for the Baltimore Ravens Divisional round playoff matchup against the Buffalo Bills. The gametime temperature is expected to be below freezing with a chance of snow.

The closest the Ravens played in snow this year was Week 9 against the New England Patriots. It was raining heavily in cold conditions in Foxborough, MA and the Ravens could barely get anything going offensively losing 23-17. That was the beginning of a three game losing streak. Jackson did show some effectiveness though with a 98.8 QBR, 249 passing yards, 55 rushing yards and two TDs offset by an interception. If Jackson can start faster than he did last week against the Tennessee Titans and hold onto the ball better than he did in that rainy game against the Pats, then this potential snow shouldn't present any potential problems.

Four of the six road teams in the Wild Card round won and the Ravens will try to keep that trend going with their incredible defense. Last week Baltimore kept Derrick Henry (who rushed for more than 2,000 yards for just the eighth season in NFL history) to 40 yards on 18 carries. The Buffalo run game is not going to be the main concern in this Saturday primetime matchup. The Bills don't run the ball that much. Case in point when they only rushed 10 times for 42 yards in their Wild Card matchup against the Indianapolis Colts.

The biggest run threat is going to come from their QB. In comparison to their backs, Allen rushed 11 times for 55 yards and a score. The scarier part though is that he threw for more than 300 yards and two scores against the Colts. Jackson is the obvious bigger threat on the ground rushing for 136 yards and a score but threw for less than 200 yards and no touchdowns. These matchup between the two best quarterbacks from the 2018 NFL Draft may just be the highlight of the divisional round. At the very least, these two represent the future of this league.

The crazy thing is that both QBs are getting better and better. Jackson shed the label that he cannot get it done in the playoffs by beating the Titans when they were down by 10 points early last week. In Jackson's career, the Ravens were 0-6 when down by 10 or more points. He didn't panic and scored 17 straight. Allen has led arguably the second best team in football only behind the Chiefs due to becoming a more accurate and effective passer. This matchup will be the ultimate test to see who has progressed the most in their three years in the league. Whoever it is, both have beat the naysayers who said Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold and even Josh Rosen were better QB prospects. So much for that.
