Open Thread: Baltimore Ravens vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

NFL: International Series-London Views Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars will square off in Wembley Stadium in London, England today. While it is clearly a long way from home for both teams, the Jaguars will technically be the home game and will only get to play seven games in their usual home stadium this season.

Past NFL games in London have been rather sloppy and just of a generally lower quality than most other regular season football, but perhaps we will get lucky with this one. The matchup itself does not necessarily lend itself toward an entertaining game with both teams sporting strong defenses and questionable offenses. The Ravens are led on offense by the intensely mediocre Joe Flacco, but the Jaguars would kill for mediocrity from their quarterback as Blake Bortles is one of the worst regular starters in league history.

But hey, maybe you’re starting one of these defenses in your fantasy league and if you are that’s probably going to work out in your favor.
