Three keys to victory for the Washington Football Team vs. Ravens
Score a non-offensive touchdown
The Baltimore Ravens have a very talented defense. They are stout up front against the run and have two of the best cornerbacks in the NFL in Marlon Humphrey and Marcus Peters. Scoring points on offense will always prove to be a challenge at times, but especially this week. This factor, combined with an elite Ravens offense, will make it crucial Washington scores a non-offensive touchdown.
Washington just simply is not likely to be able to keep up on Sunday. Whether it is a punt or kick return touchdown, a blocked punt touchdown, or a defensive touchdown, the Washington Football Team needs to have a crucial non-offensive touchdown.
Lamar Jackson can have periods of inaccuracy, and with a strong front for Washington, there may be periods where Jackson could be inaccurate. Washington’s secondary has to pounce, if this occurs.
Washington needs a stellar game from its special teams as well. They need elite punt coverage, they need to make their field goals, and most importantly, they need a huge special teams play. With Steven Sims being out on Sunday, undrafted rookie Isaiah Wright may get his opportunity. In what will be an increased role, a big return or two may be crucial.
If Washington contains Lamar Jackson, wins the turnover battle, and scores a defensive or special teams touchdown, they give themselves a chance to beat the Baltimore Ravens. We will find out soon enough if they can get the victory.
