Through 3 Quarters

The New England Patriots were expected to take an 'L' in this one, but so far it isn't playing out to script. Either team is in a position to win, but they lead against the Baltimore Ravens 23-17. The Patriots have enjoyed the tag-team combination of RB Damien Harris and RB Rex Burkhead. The former has picked up 121 yards on the ground on 18 carries, while the latter has snatched two receiving TDs.

New England has yet to string together two consecutive wins, but this may be their chance. For now, all signs point to yes.

What to Know

The Baltimore Ravens are on the road again on Sunday and play against the New England Patriots at 8:20 p.m. ET Nov. 15 at Gillette Stadium. The Ravens have a defense that allows only 17.75 points per game, so New England's offense will have their work cut out for them.

Baltimore had a touchdown and change to spare in a 24-10 win over the Indianapolis Colts last week. It was another big night for Baltimore's QB Lamar Jackson, who accumulated 170 passing yards in addition to rushing for one TD and 58 yards. Jackson ended up with a passer rating of 144.70.

Meanwhile, New England narrowly escaped with a victory as the squad sidled past the New York Jets 30-27. It took four tries, but New England can finally say that they have a win on the road. QB Cam Newton and WR Jakobi Meyers were among the main playmakers for the Patriots as the former accumulated 274 passing yards in addition to punching in two rushing touchdowns and the latter caught 12 passes for 169 yards. Newton ended up with a passer rating of 142.90.

Special teams collected 12 points for New England. K Nick Folk booted in three field goals, the longest a 51-yarder in the fourth quarter, which ultimately accounted for the difference in the matchup.

The Ravens are the favorite in this one, with an expected 6.5-point margin of victory. Those who got lucky with them against the spread last week might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.

Their wins bumped Baltimore to 6-2 and New England to 3-5. One last thing to keep an eye on: Baltimore gashed the left side of the field in their last contest, rushing toward the left sideline for 31 yards on 2.58 yards per rush for 12 points of their total 24. That's bad news for New England, who had a hard time containing the rush on the left side of the field against the Jets.
