The Ravens who will play the Eagles today at the Linc are not last year’s team.
Especially on offense.
They have dropped to 21st in TruMedia’s Expected Points Added (EPA) model.
The Ravens’ defense, however, is first.
Carson Wentz played his best game of the season in the Eagles’ Week 5 loss against the Steelers, but he’ll be tested by the Ravens’ blitz schemes.
Baltimore blitzes at the second-highest rate of any team, and Wentz ranks 29th among 33 qualifying quarterbacks in success rate against the blitz.
The Eagles probably need to steal a score on special teams or defense to produce enough points to pull off the upset.
