Who Ravens Fans Should Root for in Week 7

102118_WhoToRootFor

The Ravens are 4-2 and part of the NFL’s 4 p.m. kickoffs this Sunday.

That gives Ravens fans a chance to sit back and watch some other teams play before tuning in to watch Baltimore’s No. 1 defense take on New Orleans’ No. 1 offense.

Here’s a guide on who to root for Sunday:

Tennessee Titans (3-3) at Los Angeles Chargers (4-2)
Sunday, 9:30 a.m. in London
The Titans are coming off back-to-back losses and a bruising 11-sack shutout loss to the Ravens. But Tennessee would be best served if they get up, dust themselves off and take down the Chargers, who have won three-in-a-row and are very much in the playoff picture.
Root for: Titans

New England Patriots (4-2) at Chicago Bears (3-2)
Sunday, 1 p.m.
It’s the Patriots versus an NFC team. Easy call. New England has rebounded from a slow start and is coming off a huge win over the previously undefeated Kansas City Chiefs. The Bears are a team that can bite anyone, however, with an aggressive defense led by Khalil Mack.
Root for: Bears

Houston Texans (3-3) vs. Jacksonville Jaguars (3-3)
Sunday, 1 p.m.
The Texans are the only team that’s winning in the AFC South at the moment. They’re riding a three-game winning streak while the Titans, Jaguars and Colts have lost a combined eight straight games. This is a game between perhaps the two best teams in the division. The Jaguars are riddled with injuries, but still have a very talented defense. Behind quarterback Deshaun Watson and a renewed J.J. Watt, the Texans can put up points in a hurry and get after signal-callers. Tough call. It may be best for the Jaguars to spin out of playoff contention while they’re banged up.
Root for: Texans

Detroit Lions (3-3) at Miami Dolphins (4-2)
Sunday, 1 p.m.
The Dolphins are still in the chase in the AFC East thanks to an ugly/wacky overtime win last week over the Bears. Brock Osweiler is starting with Ryan Tannehill injured. The Ravens and Dolphins don’t play each other this season, so Baltimore doesn’t have a chance to get a leg up.
Root for: Lions

Minnesota Vikings (3-2-1) at New York Jets (3-3)
Sunday, 1 p.m.
Just like the Dolphins, the Jets are hanging around with rookie quarterback Sam Darnold and a strong running game. The Vikings will give them a stiff test.
Root for: Vikings

Cincinnati Bengals (4-2) at Kansas City Chiefs (5-1)
Sunday, 8:20 p.m.
The dream scenario for Sunday is a Ravens win against the Saints, then tuning in to watch the Bengals lose to the Chiefs so Baltimore takes over first place in the AFC North. Both the Chiefs and Bengals are coming off last-minute losses last week.
Root for: Chiefs
