The streak of “Monday Night Football” divisional games comes to an end after three weeks. Now, viewers will be treated to a matchup featuring two playoff teams from last season.
The Colts will travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens. It will be the Colts’ 10th game playing in Baltimore since they unceremoniously left the city overnight on March 29, 1984. They have a 4-5 record in their nine previous meetings and will be hard-pressed to slow down the Ravens’ offense.
Lamar Jackson and the Ravens are averaging 420 yards of offense per game, good for the fourth-best mark in the NFL. Their third-ranked rushing offense will test a Colts defense that has been middle-of-the-road against the run.
The Colts are coming off a 27-17 win over the Dolphins that stopped a three-game losing skid to begin their season. Carson Wentz and the Colts have averaged just 214 passing yards per game, so it may make it hard for them to take on a Ravens defense that is getting healthier and has allowed just 170 passing yards per game in their last two outings.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the Ravens-Colts game, including the TV channel, start time and more.
