Betting Impact:

With the top seed in the AFC locked up, the Baltimore Ravens will sit Lamar Jackson is order to keep him healthy and fresh for the Divisional Round of the playoffs. Robert Griffin III will get the start under center, ut coach John Harbaugh has admitted that we will probably see Trace McSorley at some point during the game. The Ravens will likely use this contest as a tune up for Griffin, but will at the same time look to protect him if the score gets out of hand, or he starts taking big hits. McSorley would be a significant downgrade from Griffin, and will be something live bettors may wish to exploit.
