Week 16 at the Baltimore Ravens
In Week 16, the Giants will travel down to Baltimore to face off with reigning MVP Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens, who finished the 2019 season with an NFL-best record of 14-2.
Not only did they finish the 2019 season at 14-2, but they lost next to nobody leading into the 2020 season, and if anything, they got better. The Ravens had one of the best drafts in the league last season because of the several players who simply fell in their laps.
The Ravens added Patrick Queen out of LSU, J.K. Dobbins out of Ohio State, Justin Madubuike out of Texas A&M, and Devin Duvernay out of Texas, among many others. Many of their draft picks will help out immediately and make the Ravens even better than they were in 2019, which is scary for the rest of the NFL.
I’m not going to sugarcoat it; this is going to be a VERY difficult match-up for the Giants. The G-Men went 4-12 last season while the Ravens went 14-2, that’s not exactly a favorable match-up for the Giants.

HOWEVER, the Giants could slow down Lamar Jackson by trying to force him to throw the ball instead of simply running it time and time again. If you let him run the ball, he’s going to burn you for 200 yards, and three touchdowns by halftime like nothing even happened.
The G-Men need to force Jackson to throw the ball rather than run it. Obviously, there is a lot more to beating the Ravens then just forcing them to throw, or else they would’ve lost a lot more than two games last season, but that’s a good place to start for the Giants in week 16.
This is going to be a very tough game for the Giants, and this is going to be a true test for the Giants new-look defense against the league’s reigning MVP.
