Ravens’ defense will stifle Pack attack

By DAN ZIELINSKI

Green Bay is coming of its first win with Brett Hundley at quarterback, after a road victory against the Chicago Bears last Sunday. But the Packers have a tougher test in the Baltimore Ravens this week at home.

Both teams’ No. 1 priority is to set up the run offensively. With rookie Jamaal Williams getting his first start at running back for the Packers, expect the Ravens defense to limit Green Bay’s rushing attack. Baltimore held Tennessee to 71 yards and Miami to 45 yards rushing the last two weeks.

The Ravens defense will try to force Hundley into bad decisions, as they lead the NFL with 13 interceptions.

Even though Baltimore’s Joe Flacco has struggled at times this season, the veteran quarterback will pick apart the Packers mediocre defense.

The Ravens will claim the road victory, led by their experienced quarterback and aggressive defense.

Prediction: Ravens 27, Packers 17
