Baltimore Ravens Vs. New York Giants: Bold Predictions For Week 6 Of 2016 NFL Season

Timothy Downs

It seems like it was just yesterday that football aficionados were waiting for what felt like an eternity for the 2016 NFL season to begin.

Yet, here we are, heading into a Week 6 that projects to be laden with enough storylines and plot twists to make an American election cycle jealous.

One of the most intriguing and underrated matchups of Week 6 will take place in East Rutherford, NJ, as the 3-2 Baltimore Ravens travel north to take on the struggling New York Giants (2-3) on Sunday.

The Ravens got off to a fast start to the season, but come into this game with virtually zero momentum after losing two in a row, and need a win in the worst way to keep up with the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC North.

The Giants have been in a funk as well of late. New York's fallen to 2-3 after losing three in a row, which is good for last place in the always unpredictable NFC East. Thus, losing at home would be devastating for the Giants.

So, will John Harbaugh's bunch pull off a crucial road win in a tough environment to prove their 3-0 start was no fluke, or will Ben McAdoo's Giants right the ship and ultimately finish victorious in front of the MetLife Stadium faithful?

Find out with these bold predictions.

Joe Flacco Looks Lost All Game

Joe Flacco's had a solid career with the Baltimore Ravens, and no one can take his Super Bowl ring away from him. This isn't up for debate.

However, let's be honest: Flacco simply isn't an "elite" quarterback.

In their Week 5 loss, the Ravens only scored 10 points against Washington's incredibly vulnerable defense. Joe mustered just 210 yards and one TD over 46 pass attempts, and failed to lead Baltimore on a single scoring drive in the second half.

"It's embarrassing to run off the field in front of your home fans, in front of your teammates. Our defense is putting up awesome fights every week, and we're just running off the field, basically. So, it doesn't feel good as the quarterback, as the leader of the offense, to continue to do that.

"I'm going to stand tall. I'm going to take it. It definitely is not fun."

Odell Beckham, Jr. Electrifies

After becoming a distraction due to his absolutely outrageous behavior during the first few weeks of the 2016 NFL season, Giants superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. appeared to be focused solely on football in Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers.

Giants Stop The Bleeding, Win By No Less Than A Touchdown

According to Pro Football Locks, the swell folks in Las Vegas favor the Giants by three points over Baltimore. This essentially means the powers that be believe these two teams are evenly matched, and New York gets a field goal edge for playing at home.

Final Score

Giants Win 27-20
