Before you place a bet on the Ravens just realize they are a .500 team at 3-3 on the highway this season.

They have had some head scratching road defeats at Tennessee, Jacksonville and Seattle.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco struggled mightily in those road losses.

Their last two opponents have been extremely weak as they defeated both Cleveland and Indianapolis.

They last faced a good team in San Francisco on Thanksgiving and pulled out the 16-6 win.

San Francisco was facing a short week and had to make cross country travel and got just one practice in.

Other than defeating Pittsburgh on the road the Ravens have had a weak road schedule this season.

This Charger team is the most dynamic offense they have faced this year road or at home.

San Diego still has faint hopes alive for a playoff berth.

They will be energized at home on Sunday night and especially if Denver and Oakland loses. Both teams are underdogs on Sunday.

The Chargers are a live underdog in this spot as they come with momentum with two straight wins.

Their offense has come alive as they put up 37 points last week at home to Buffalo and 38 points in a road Monday night win at Jacksonville.

Why the sudden turnaround on offense?

The reason is pretty simple.

Phillip Rivers finally has all his offensive weapons healthy and on the field at the same time.

Malcolm Floyd and his six foot five inch frame returned to the San Diego lineup and his presence in the passing game makes it extremely difficult for opposing secondary’s to cover everyone.

The dump off passes to Ryan Mathews has become effective as opposing secondary’s are deeper in pass coverage.

Another attractive stat for the Chargers is the fact that Phillip Rivers is 22-2 in December.

The Ravens and Chargers kick off Sunday night football from San Diego at 8:20PM Eastern Time. It will be NBC providing the national television coverage.
