Los Angeles Rams at Baltimore Ravens: Predictions, picks and odds for NFL Week 14 game

The Los Angeles Rams (6-6) have snuck their way back into playoff contention, but they'll get a stiff test in Week 14 with a visit to the Baltimore Ravens (9-3).

Los Angeles was able to capitalize against an injury-riddled Cleveland Browns team, as a big fourth quarterback propelled the Rams to their third-straight win. Joe Flacco was under pressure late in the game, while Matthew Stafford and company are showing flashes of a team that isn't far removed from winning the Super Bowl.

Baltimore had last week off, but the path to the No. 1 seed in the playoffs got a little easier with the Kansas City Chiefs losing in Green Bay. However, the schedule doesn't get any easier for the Ravens with three divisional leaders on deck following the Rams game, making a win against Los Angeles necessary in the race for the top spot in the AFC.

Lorenzo Reyes: Ravens 26, Rams 21

Baltimore can be a dominant team, but it also seems to let up when it plays with a lead. That’s concerning for people looking to back them. The Ravens have the better roster, but the Rams have played up to decent teams and have been something of a surprise. If L.A. can get Kyren Williams going against Baltimore’s rushing defense — its weak link — I can see the Rams covering this.

Tyler Dragon: Ravens 27, Rams 17

The Ravens, who are coming off a bye week, have the AFC’s No. 1 seed in their sights. Ravens coach John Harbaugh is 12-3 coming off a bye. Baltimore’s defense leads the NFL in sacks and allows the second-fewest points per game. Rams WR Puka Nacua broke the Rams rookie receiving yards record with 1,029 yards. Nacua and Cooper Kupp need big games to keep it close.

Safid Deen: Ravens 30, Rams 27

Lamar Jackson and the Ravens come off their bye and will get a good test at home. The Rams are a feisty bunch offensively, scoring more than 36 points in their last two games in a three-game win streak. But Baltimore is playing for more: A chance at the No. 1 seed in the AFC. That’s enough to give Baltimore the edge in this one.

Victoria Hernandez: Ravens 28, Rams 20

The Rams do have the momentum of a three-game win streak and are powered by Puka Nacua’s inspirational story. But Baltimore has the second-ranked defense in the league and will be fresh off their bye. Lamar Jackson and company secure another win.

Jordan Mendoza: Ravens 31, Rams 21

Los Angeles has certainly benefitted from an easy part in the schedule, but going across the country to face a refreshed Baltimore team is certainly a tough thing to overcome. With one of the top passing defenses in the league, Baltimore makes it hard for Matthew Stafford to find his trusty receivers and get a two-score victory.
