After another close loss, the questions surrounding the Chargers' future came pouring in. Most notably, who could be in line to replace Brandon Staley next year? A primetime victory over one of the AFC’s best teams would go a long way to quieting doubters.
The Ravens, on the other hand, quickly rebounded from a stunning loss to the Browns with a strong victory over the Bengals (granted, Cincy lost Joe Burrow in that game). Baltimore will need to keep stacking wins to stay in the hunt for the AFC’s top seed. Five teams are tied with three losses on the year, so there is little room for error.

Ravens vs Chargers Same Game Parlay (+870 on FanDuel):
- Ravens First Half -1.5
- Keenan Allen Over 7.5 Receptions
- Gus Edwards Anytime Touchdown
- Lamar Jackson Under 241.5 Passing Yards
The NFL schedulers are simply out to get teams sometimes. The Chargers are on their fifth of six legs of pinball-esque travel across the United States.
The Bolts started at home against the Bears, went to New York to face the Jets, back to L.A. to play Detroit, traveled to Green Bay, and are now back home to face the Ravens. The final leg of cross-country travel will be up to Boston next to take on the Patriots.
Baltimore has had the fortune of playing three straight games at home. The Ravens' latest game was on Thursday Night Football, giving them extra time to travel and prep.
Beyond the travel, the Ravens' key to success this season has been their dominance in the first half. Baltimore is 9-2 against the spread in the first half this season.
Baltimore is top 10 in points per game, yards per game, points allowed per game and yards allowed per game. The Ravens have the travel advantage, are better in the first half and have extra rest.
Another fast time seems assured for the Ravens.
If the Ravens are ahead at the half, the Chargers will need to throw to catch up.
L.A. currently has one player who is an above-average receiving option: Keenan Allen. Last week’s target distribution shows how much the Chargers believe in their options as Allen received 16-of-36 targets.
Allen has had at least eight catches in four straight games. With a negative game script and no other options, he should again exceed this threshold.
Edwards has scored in five straight games and has become the Ravens' go-to red-zone option. His goal-line play has helped Baltimore find consistency in the red zone.
During Edward's touchdown streak, the Ravens have scored at least 30 points in each game. Prior to this stretch, Baltimore had not scored 30 points in any game.
Two weeks ago, L.A. faced the Lions, a team as strong as the Ravens in the run game. Detroit feasted, breaking out for 200 yards and three touchdowns.
Edwards will get the valuable touches and the Chargers don’t have the manpower to stop a power run game like Baltimore's. At +110, Edwards' anytime touchdown is a perfect fit in this parlay.
This is a big number.
Jackson has crossed this threshold just twice this year and he is now missing his top receiving option in Mark Andrews. The key to our script is the Ravens having a lead at the half and generally leading big. If that plays out, Jackson will not need to throw.
