The Baltimore Ravens (8-3) have assumed the role of No. 1 seed in the conference by winning five of their past six games. Quarterback Lamar Jackson has seven touchdowns and only one interception in those five victories, and he has helped the Ravens offense score at least 31 points in five games in a row.
The Los Angeles Chargers have dropped consecutive games, both by three points, to fall into the basement of the AFC West. Their defense has sputtered most of the season, ranking second to last in total D and dead last against the pass. Head coach Brandon Staley badly needs to get things on the right track as his hot seat gets warmer.
Both teams are without key contributors after injuries in Week 11. Ravens tight end Mark Andrews is likely done for the year after suffering an ankle injury that requires surgery. Meanwhile, the Chargers put star edge rusher Joey Bosa on injured reserve after he suffered a foot injury.
