The Ravens will be back at MetLife Stadium on Sunday to play the New York Jets after losing there against the Giants last week.
The Jets have made a quarterback change and the Ravens' quarterback situation is uncertain as Joe Flacco deals with an injury.

Brandon Marshall will be a capital-P problem for the Ravens' young and small secondary, but the defense can devote all of its resources to stopping him, because nothing else the Jets offense does scares you. Meanwhile, Joe Flacco, if healthy enough to chuck the ball another 40-something times, could have success going against a struggling secondary. Just like every other Ravens game, this one will probably come down to the last possession.
EDWARD LEE (4-2)

One team is 3-3 and the other is 1-5, but they're practically mirror images of each other in terms of their offensive struggles and general foibles. Again, injuries continue to cripple the Ravens, and I think the Jets will be inspired by the quarterback switch from Ryan Fitzpatrick to Geno Smith just enough to eke out the win.
CHILDS WALKER (4-2)

This is a hard game to pick because the Ravens are so beat up, and the Jets have just been lousy. It would be a surprise if it wasn't close and low-scoring, but the Ravens will force one more stop than the Jets and momentarily arrest their slide.
JEN BADIE (3-3)
Ravens 21, Jets 17
The Ravens are pretty banged up, but as long as Joe Flacco plays, they should be able to beat a Jets team that is benching Ryan Fitzpatrick, who has thrown a league-leading 11 interceptions, for Geno Smith, who has a career 71.9 QB rating. Plus the Ravens have never lost four in a row under John Harbaugh.
MIKE PRESTON (3-3)
Ravens 17, Jets 14
The Jets are in a hole and they can't recover. The Ravens will get two offensive line starters back on the field this week and that should give either quarterback, Joe Flacco or Ryan Mallett, time to throw. The Jets have no offense and the Ravens will wear New York down in the fourth period. The Ravens break a three-game losing streak while New York will continue on a five-game slide.
PETER SCHMUCK (3-3)
Ravens 23, Jets 13: Regardless of the Ravens' quarterback uncertainty, they should be able to grind out a victory over the hapless Jets, who also have quarterback uncertainty. The better news is that when they win, they'll likely be tied for first place in the AFC North.
