The Baltimore Ravens are 3-1 this season which puts them tied for first place in the AFC North going into week 5. Contrary the colts are 1-3 which put them tied for second place in the AFC South going into week 5.

Lamar Jackson is 2-2 in his career on Monday Night Football, and 1-0 vs the Colts.

Indianapolis Colts

Carson Wentz has thrown just 1 interception all season which shows great improvement from 15 (in just 12 games) in 2020. Wentz spoke of avoiding miscues to the media, “Trying to make a big play when it’s there. But otherwise, play smart and keep moving the chains.”

Indianapolis’s injury report lists some key players. Linebacker Darius Leonard, running back Nyheim Hines, Kwity Paye, and offensive tackle Braden Smith all sat out of Thursday’s practice.

The Colts defense is ranked eighth in the NFL. They have recovered 5 fumbles and have intercepted 3 passes this season. They also have 8 sacks.

Baltimore Ravens
Fantasy Football

In the preseason, Baltimore’s best running back, J.K. Dobbins was injured. The Ravens currently have a 43 game streak of rushing for at least 100 yards. This will prove to be even more difficult this weak because left tackle Ronnie Stanley is out (for the fourth week in a row), and back up, Alejandro Villanueva is questionable after missing practice on Thursday.

One factor in this record is quarterback Lamar Jackson, who made his first career start in the first game of the streak. In week 3 vs Kansas City, he alone rushed for 107 yards including 2 touchdowns. In 4 games this year, Lamar Jackson has a 4/3 touchdown to interception ratio with a completion percentage of 60.5 and a total of 1,077 passing yards.

The Ravens currently have the fifth-ranked defense in the NFL. They have the second-fewest penalty yards only behind their opponent, the Colts. However, they only have 3 interceptions and have allowed a total of 11 touchdowns.
