Ravens' runners and Yannick Ngakoue primed for big day vs. Jaguars

Jaguars (1-12) at Ravens (8-5)

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET | CBS

Matchup rating: 47.6 | Spread: BAL -13 (47.5)

What to watch for: Quarterback Lamar Jackson and the Ravens' dominant rushing attack face a struggling Jaguars run defense. Baltimore leads the NFL in rushing (173.8 yards per game) and has produced more than 200 yards on the ground in back-to-back games. Jacksonville has allowed the third-most rushing yards this season (145.5 per game) and gave up 249 last weekend to the Titans. -- Jamison Hensley

Bold prediction: Yannick Ngakoue will have multiple sacks on Sunday. The Ravens defensive end said he's treating this as just another game, but nobody believes that, right? It was an ugly end to his time in Jacksonville, which included calling the owner's son (who is also the team's executive VP of football administration and technology) a "clown" on social media. Jaguars offensive tackles Cam Robinson and Jawaan Taylor have struggled against quicker rushers this season, and Ngakoue will take advantage. -- Mike DiRocco

Stat to know: The Jaguars have lost 12 straight games, the second-longest losing streak in franchise history (13 straight in 2012-13). But on the upside, they have a plus-74 point differential against the Ravens and are 12-9 in the matchup's history.

Playoff/draft picture: The Ravens have the easiest remaining schedule in the NFL, per FPI, as their final three opponents are a combined 8-30-1 this season. They have a 53% chance to win out, according to FPI. While they currently have an 86% chance to make the playoffs, they'd be looking at 53% with a loss this weekend, independent of results in other games. The Jags, meanwhile, are projected to take home the No. 2 spot in the draft and even have a 24.6% chance to move into the top spot.

Injuries: Jaguars | Ravens

What to know for fantasy: Jacksonville running back James Robinson and Buffalo receiver Stefon Diggs are the only running backs, wide receivers or tight ends to have scored 10 PPR points in all 13 of their team's games this season. See Week 15 rankings.

Betting nugget: Baltimore is 39-0 outright as a double-digit favorite in the regular season, the only team to never lose in that spot. Read more.

DiRocco's pick: Ravens 28, Jaguars 21
