Jackson Can Extend Impressive Streak vs. NFC Opponents

Jackson Can Extend Impressive Streak vs. NFC Opponents
Fact Checked by Pat McLoone

The Baltimore Ravens probably could make reservations for the Super Bowl if they only played NFC opponents with Lamar Jackson as the quarterback.

With Jackson running the show, the Ravens are now 17-1 against NFC opponents going back to 2018, Jackson’s rookie season. That 17-1 record against the NFC works out to a .944 winning percentage, and it’s the best by any quarterback against out-of-conference opponents since the 1970 merger between the NFL and the AFL, according to ESPN Stats and Info. If you were on this trend early, you have made out well in Maryland sports betting.

Jackson Gets Chance to Make It 18-1

Jackson’s most recent win over an NFC opponent was Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, 31-24, in Glendale, Ariz. The victory lifted AFC North-leading Baltimore to 6-2. The previous week, the Ravens beat the NFC Detroit Lions, 38-6, at home. 

Jackson will get a chance to extend his glittering record against the NFC Sunday when the Ravens take on Seattle at home. The Ravens are 5.5-point favorites over the Seahawks at BetMGM Maryland, Caesars Sportsbook, DraftKings and FanDuel.

The only time that a Jackson-led Ravens team has lost to an NFC opponent was last season when they dropped a 24-20 game to the New York Giants on the road.  Baltimore has lost a handful of games to NFC teams during Jackson’s tenure with the team, but those were occasions when Jackson was out of the lineup with an injury.  

Later in the season, the Ravens play two more NFC opponents, the L.A. Rams at home (Sunday, Dec. 10), and the San Francisco 49ers (Monday night, Dec. 25) on the road.
