Staff picks for Sunday's Ravens-Jaguars game from London's Wembley Stadium:
Ravens 20, Jaguars 13
The Ravens are leading the league in takeaways and with Jaguars QB Blake Bortles already having as many interceptions as touchdowns, the Ravens should have the edge in London. One thing to watch: The Jags had 10 sacks in week 1 and this is the Ravens' first game without Marshal Yanda.
This has all the makings of a trap game. The Ravens are feeling good after a 2-0 start and might be peeking ahead to next Sunday's AFC North tilt with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The loss of six-time Pro Bowl right guard Marshal Yanda will open up pass-rushing lanes for a talented Jacksonville defense front in what should be a low-scoring affair.
This is a scary game for the Ravens because the Jaguars have a lot of individual talent and are accustomed to the London experience. However, this come down to just trusting Joe Flacco a heck of a lot more than Blake Bortles.
