ST. LOUIS RAMS (4-5) AT RAVENS (2-7), Sunday, 1 p.m., FOX
Sports Content Editor
Prediction: Rams 23, Ravens 20
Comment: Ed Reed's return to be inducted into the Ring of Honor will serve as a reminder to fans of what's been missing during this brutal season — the ability to finish off opponents. The Ravens haven't proved they can win against anyone at home, let alone a quarterback, Case Keenum, who beat them last season, so why pick them now?

Prediction: Ravens 17, Rams 9
Comment: It won’t be pretty, but the Rams’ issues on offense outside of running back Todd Gurley mean they’ll struggle to score. The Ravens will too, but one touchdown could be the difference.
Prediction: Rams 17, Ravens 14
Comment: The Rams have struggled with their passing game, but they still play tough, aggressive defense. The Ravens are 1-3 at home this season, so there is no advantage there. It will be another close game, but another loss for the Ravens.
Prediction: Ravens 23, Rams 17
Comment: The Ravens are down, but the Rams passing offense isn’t quite good enough to kick them. Running back Todd Gurley might be a problem if St. Louis has a late lead, and beware Tavon Austin having a huge game in his return to Baltimore, but he can’t touch the ball on every down, right?
Prediction: Rams 27, Ravens 24
Comment: The time has come to concede the fact that the Ravens simply don't know how to win. Maybe this is the week they force three turnovers, commit no penalties and finally do not leave the final two minutes of the game to chance, but I wouldn't bet on it.
Prediction: Ravens 20, Rams 17
Comment: With one of the worst passing offenses in the league, the Rams aren't well-equipped to attack the Ravens' biggest weakness. Of course, the Ravens aren't exactly primed to light up one of the league's better defenses either. Expect a low-scoring battle with the slight edge going to the home team.

Prediction: Rams 26, Ravens 23
Comment: A defense that was dissected by the now-benched Josh McCown and Colin Kaepernick is perfectly capable of struggling against a Case Keenum-led offense. Even their normally significant homefield advantage hasn't saved the mistake-prone Ravens this year.
