After allowing the Miami Dolphins to score with 14 seconds left, the Baltimore Ravens fell to 1-1. This was an awful performance by the Ravens defense and one we hope not to see again. This week, they face the New England Patriots, who are going through their own struggles. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh better have his defense up to par when they take on Bill Belichick.

With a record of 1-1, the Patriots enter into this game coming off a 17-14 win. It was a hard-fought game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but it resulted in a win. This game against the Ravens will be a tough test, especially for the Patriots’ defense. Last week they gave up only 14 points, but the Ravens have a much better offense. So, who’s the best pick in week 3?

Ravens vs. Patriots Betting Preview and Trends

Lamar Jackson had a great game against the Miami Dolphins, but his defense fell apart. He went 21/29, throwing for 318 yards and 3 touchdowns. By the end of the first half, the Ravens had a 28-7 lead on the Dolphins. The question is, how did they surrender such a large lead?

Even by the end of the third quarter, the Ravens had a 35-14 lead and should’ve had the game won. However, the fourth quarter is where the Ravens' defense fell apart. Allowing 21 unanswered points, the Ravens saw their lead diminish quickly.

The Ravens went downfield and kicked a 31-yard field goal to go up 38-35. Unfortunately for them, the Dolphins went down the field and scored with 14 seconds left. In week 3, the Ravens better get their defense together; allowing 21 unanswered points is a recipe for a loss.

The New England Patriots had a better outing, beating the Pittsburgh Steelers 17-14. Mac Jones threw for 252 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Earning 376 yards on the day, the Patriots offense looked great through the first three quarters. After that, however, it declined.

The Patriots were unable to score a single point in the fourth quarter of the game. This led to such a close game as the Steelers scored right at the beginning of the final quarter. This week, the Patriots really need to focus on their running game, but the real focus should be on defense.

Finding a way to slow down Lamar Jackson is going to be vital to the Patriots success. In week 1, they faced Tua Tagovailoa, another mobile quarterback. Tagovailoa is less likely to be a threat on the ground than Lamar Jackson, but he still beat the Patriots.

Ravens vs. Patriots Picks

Baltimore is favored by only three points heading into this game. Although it’s not a large spread, we saw that they were unable to cover when they faced the Dolphins. They covered the spread in week 1, but last week was a sign that their defense needs a lot of work. The good news for Baltimore is that the Patriots don’t have a very strong offense.

Through the first two weeks of the season, the Patriots have averaged just 12 points per game. Considering they’ve had some offensive struggles, we have to go with the Ravens. Baltimore has proven they have an offense that can easily win games. They just need the defense to match.

Final Score: 27-13 (Ravens)

EXTRA POINTS

1. The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Baltimore's last 8 games on the road.

2. New England is 1-5-1 against the spread in their last 7 games.

3. The Patriots are 1-4 against the spread in their last five Week 3 meetings.

Best Bet: Baltimore Ravens -3 (-115) and Under 42.5 (-110)

Baltimore Ravens vs. New England Patriots Recap SEP 25TH 2022

Lamar Jackson threw for four touchdowns and rushed for another as the Baltimore Ravens held off a late comeback attempt to defeat the New England Patriots 37-26 on Sunday at Foxborough, Mass.

Jackson completed 18 of 29 passes for 218 yards and had 107 yards on the ground on just 11 carries. Mark Andrews had eight receptions for 89 yards and two touchdowns for Baltimore (2-1).

New England cut its deficit to 31-26 after Rhamondre Stevenson's 1-yard rushing touchdown with 12:39 left to play but the Patriots failed to convert a two-point conversion.

New England (1-2) then turned the ball over on its next three possessions. After throwing an interception on the last drive of the game, Patriots quarterback Mac Jones limped off the field with an apparent left leg injury.

Jones threw for 321 yards and three interceptions on 22-of-32 passing. He rushed for one touchdown. DeVante Parker led all receivers with five catches for 156 yards for New England, while Stevenson and Damien Harris each rushed for one score.

The Patriots burst out of halftime, driving 75 yards in seven plays in just under three minutes to go up 20-14. Harris finished off the march with a 2-yard rushing TD.

Baltimore's Justice Hill rushed 34 yards to the New England 6 on the ensuing drive, setting up Jackson's 1-yard touchdown pass to Josh Oliver for a 21-20 Ravens lead. It was Oliver's first career touchdown.

In the first half, Jonathan Jones intercepted Jackson's pass intended for Rashod Bateman with 8:12 left in the second quarter and returned it to the Baltimore 32. The Patriots took advantage of the short field as Jones walked untouched into the end zone from 3 yards out for a 10-7 lead.

However, Jackson's 16-yard scoring strike to Andrews with 30 seconds left in the first half put the Ravens back on top. The Patriots pulled within 14-13 before the break, on Nick Folk's 50-yard field goal as time expired in the second quarter.

Jackson also connected with Andrews in the first quarter on a 5-yard shovel pass to get Baltimore on the board.
