Los Angeles Chargers vs. Baltimore Ravens Offense Analysis

Photo of the pickswise logo

The Los Angeles Chargers and the Baltimore Ravens face off on Sunday and one of the big keys is which offense performs better. Let’s break down each of the strengths and weaknesses of both teams offenses and which team I think has an edge on this side of the ball. Let’s dive into the Chargers vs. Baltimore Ravens Offense differences!

Los Angeles Chargers

The Chargers are actually pretty good on both sides of the ball but what gets everyone talking is Phillip Rivers and the offense. The offense is averaging 28.6 points per game which is sixth in the NFL. They use a balanced attack with 255 yards through the air and 117 on the ground. They also do a pretty good job of hanging onto the ball only having 19 turnovers on the season. An interesting stat is how well they have done on fourth downs. They have gone for it on 4th down eight times, with seven of those being successful.

Phillip Rivers has thrown for 4308 yards, 32 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions. His favorite target all year has been Keenan Allen who has had 96 receptions, for 1196 yards, and six touchdowns.

On the ground, the Chargers are led by Melvin Gordon who has been banged up a lot this year but is expected to go in this game. He has rushed for 885 yards and 10 touchdowns and is also a really good target out of the backfield.

Baltimore Ravens

On the other side of this matchup is the Baltimore Ravens who’s offense has had a complete overhaul since Lamar Jackson has taken over at quarterback but it has worked and has put them in a good position. On the season they are averaging 24.3 points per game which is 15th in the NFL. They are averaging 152.6 yards per game on the ground which is second in the NFL but since Jackson has taken over, that offense has been first on the ground.

Lamar Jackson has completely turned around the offense and this is very much a run first team. Through the air Jackson has thrown for 1201 yards, six touchdowns, and three interceptions. On the ground he has been dynamic rushing for 695 yards and five touchdowns.

He has also done a good job of opening up the running game for guys like Gus Edwards. The one area that Jackson has struggled has been with fumbles. So far this year he has had ten fumbles and that is something he is going to need to protect against on Sunday.

At receiver, the Ravens have four guys who have had more than 500 yards receiving. The leader of that crew is John Brown who has caught 42 receptions for 715 yards.

Jackson also really likes to use his tight ends with rookie Mark Andrews leading that crew having caught 34 passes for 552 yards and three touchdowns.

Edge

Taking out which defense they are going against, I think the edge is with the Rivers in this game. Jackson has shown a lot this year but the pressure ramps up in the playoffs and the fumbles could come back to haunt him in this game. Rivers is hungry and I wouldn’t bet against the offense in this one.
