Houston Texans (6-3) at Baltimore Ravens (7-2)

Sunday, November 17, 1PM ET

Easily the best matchup of Week 11, the Baltimore Ravens host the Houston Texans in what will likely be a shootout. Both of these teams boast explosive offenses with exciting young quarterbacks, plenty of playmakers and defenses that are good but not great.

While I’m a big Deshaun Watson and I’m confident he’ll kill it in this game, I’m picking Lamar Jackson and the Ravens to come away with the win. Really, it’s just too difficult to pick against one of the most exhilarating stars the league is drooling over right now.

Jackson showed us again in Week 10 why he’s a dynamic difference-maker on offense. Not only has his passing skills been much better than advertised, but he’s a generational talent in terms of running with the football and creating opportunities with his feet. Against a Texans defense that has given up big yards at times this season, Jackson figures to do some serious damage.

Watson will make things interesting though. He’ll connect with DeAndre Hopkins early and often, allowing Houston to find the end zone at least a few times. When the final whistle blows, though, the Ravens will own the lead as they look to secure a first-round bye.

Prediction: Ravens win 45-37
