The Baltimore Ravens have the opportunity to clinch the AFC north in the next two weeks; their first challenge is the San Diego Chargers at Qualcom Stadium at 4:05 PM ET.
The Ravens beat the Steelers last week, they face the Chargers in this one, and they travel home to take on the Steelers again. “The feeling right now is we’re exactly where we want to be, but we haven’t arrived yet,” tight end Ed Dickson told the team’s official website. “We want to build from here. It’s not how you begin the season; it’s how you end the season that brings you a championship”.
The Chargers situation is kind of different; they need to play mistake free football and then to make a run to the playoffs. “We can’t worry about that. We just have to go try and win a game,” Rivers said. “We have to hang our hat on controlling what we can control.”
“Yeah, I am,” Norv Turner said. “I mean, I think for the quarterback position, all you’ve got to do is look at two weeks ago, and there are three or four guys that are laying on the ground with concussions or separated shoulders or whatever”.
The last time these two teams met was last year in December; San Diego smashed a Baltimore’s team that was judged about not being as good away from home. “It wasn’t that pleasant. Before I could look up it was 31-7,” Terrell Suggs said. “It was like raining touchdowns out there. He’s a good quarterback”.
San Diego is 2-4 ATS in its last 6 games when playing Baltimore. The lines have the Chargers as -1 favorites.
