Open: 40.5 O/U, BAL -3
Press time: 39.5 O/U, BAL -3.5

Two good defenses, two bad quarterbacks, and a travel scenario that could encourage a number of wacky outcomes otherwise. It would be an oversimplification to depict this game as a question of Leonard Fournette vs. Javorius Allen, but it's hard to see what offense might be in this game other than those two players.

It only took a few snaps in Week 1 for me to figure Fournette for great rather than good, and this game will be his second tough test in a row. It's a much easier test than it could have been, however, because dominant Baltimore tackle Brandon Williams (foot) is out. Given that Joe Flacco is unlikely to engineer a lead that would force Jacksonville to abandon the run, as Marcus Mariota (and Derrick Henry) did when Fournette finished last week with 14 carries, I think there's reason to lock in Fournette for 20 carries in this one.
