Lamar Jackson Expected to Start vs. Falcons

There has been a ton of uncertainty the past several weeks in regards to the Baltimore Ravens.

Whether John Harbaugh will leave after this season or if he’d be fired before? Whether the Ravens will be able to get back in the playoff race? Whether Joe Flacco’s days are numbered as the Ravens starter?

Although we do not necessarily know if Flacco’s time as a starter is over, the latest news appears to be leading in that direction.

Flacco has been out since the beginning of November with a hip injury. Meanwhile, rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson has led the Ravens back into the playoff hunt with a perfect 2-0 record as the starter.

Coach Harbaugh, who very well may be in his final season, has been extremely patient with Flacco.

Jackson will make his first career road start as the Ravens go down to Atlanta. While the Falcons have a high-octane offense led by Matt Ryan and Julio Jones, their defense is something Baltimore can look to exploit. They currently rank 29th in total defense, while ranking 25th in rushing yards allowed (123.7).

Look for Action Jackson and running back Gus Edwards to get a ton of rushes come Sunday.
