Throughout the 2022 season, NFL Network analysts will provide one bold prediction heading into each week's slate of games (see the full Week 12 schedule).
I was feeling real bold last week and almost nailed my prediction of Jeff Saturday improving to 2-0. I'm going to keep bringing the fire. This week, Trevor Lawrence will outrush Lamar Jackson. Wouldn't that be something?! Since Week 4, Jackson is averaging 60.4 rush yards per game, a decline from 81 per game in Weeks 1-3. Meanwhile, the most yards Lawrence has ever rushed for in a game: 53 during the Jags' Week 9 win over the Raiders. And this Sunday, he faces the Ravens' third-ranked run defense. It's a tall order, but man, wouldn't this be fun? Like I said, let's get bold!
Week 12 brings one of my favorite games of the season: The DeAngelo Hall Bowl! That's right, my two former squads -- Atlanta and Washington -- square off Sunday with a lot on the line for both. One thing to watch closely in this one: the Falcons' third-ranked run game vs. the Commanders' sixth-ranked run defense. A number of outcomes can here, but I think Washington holds the Cordarrelle Patterson-led Atlanta rushing attack to fewer than 75 yards.
Not only is the Bengals-Titans matchup the best game of the weekend, but it also provides the most fascinating contrast in offensive styles. The Joe Burrow-led Bengals rank fourth in passing, but 28th in rushing. Meanwhile, the Derrick Henry-led Titans boast the 11th-best rushing attack ... and the No. 30 passing offense. On Sunday, King Henry and Co. can't keep pace with Burrow, who throws three TD passes in a statement win at Tennessee.
