Former New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman believes that the Baltimore Ravens will be in the Super Bowl at the end of this season representing the AFC.
"The Baltimore Ravens are going to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl with the way they're playing right now," Edelman said. "You look at their defense, they're top five in points allowed, yards per game, they're top ten on third down and they're three in the red area. They are situationally defense, insane. And that's not even talking about the offense and Lamar Jackson and how he's playing. The one thing that makes me a little scared is that Mark Andrews injury."
The Ravens sit in second place in the AFC at 8-3, behind the 7-2 Kansas City Chiefs. If the Chiefs fail to defeat the Philadelphia Eagles at home, they will be half a game back of Baltimore for first place with a game in hand.
The defense has been the Ravens' best unit this season, ranking third in the NFL in points allowed per game at 16.1 and second in yards allowed per game at 273.5.
At the same time, Baltimore has an MVP candidate leading the other side of the ball in star quarterback Lamar Jackson. Through 11 games, Jackson has completed a career-high 69.5% of his passes for 2,441 yards, 12 touchdowns and five interceptions while rushing for another 535 yards and five touchdowns.
Next up for the Ravens is a Sunday Night Football matchup in Los Angeles against Justin Herbert and the Chargers. The game will be played at 8:20 p.m. on Nov. 26.
