The Baltimore Ravens continue to put up decent numbers in offense, scoring 23.2 points in their last five matches.

The unit has put 22.2 points on board in the last five matches after all, while averaging 20.4 points for this season. A below-average defense isn’t what any traveling team wants to hear, but that’s how it is for the Carolina Panthers. The visitors have allowed a nerve-wracking 24.3 points per game this year.
2021 was a year to forget for the Carolina Panthers. The visitors failed to reach the playoffs, having finished fourth in the NFC South at 5-12, and are expected to miss the NFL postseason again, having gone 3-7 so far in the current campaign.
