The Ravens spent the days leading up to the game talking about how tough it is to win on the road on Monday night and citing the Jaguars near comeback against Pittsburgh as proof of how dangerous Jacksonville is. Their responses were typical of a focused and professional team which takes every challenge seriously. However, the reality is the Jaguars really dont possess enough weapons to truly threaten the Ravens. They are last in the NFL in average yards per game for a reason. Assuming that the Ravens contain Jones-Drew and that is a fair bet after how theyve handled Mendenhall, Chris Johnson, Steven Jackson, Shonn Greene and Foster already this season they should take control of this game early, and not let go. A couple of quick touchdowns should be enough for the Ravens defense, which will remind the Jaguars and a national television audience that it remains one of the most feared units in the league.
