BALTIMORE — A battle of 7-4 teams will be an appropriate final test before the month of December as the Ravens welcome the San Diego Chargers to Baltimore on Sunday afternoon.
San Diego entered Week 13 holding the No. 6 spot in the AFC playoff race, but the Ravens are right on the Chargers’ heels as they try to keep pace in a competitive AFC North with all teams at least three games above .500, the first time that’s happened in NFL history. A win on Sunday would allow the Ravens to match their win total from the 2013 season, the first time they missed the playoffs in the John Harbaugh era.
There were no surprises to the Ravens’ inactive list as they deactivated the same seven players from last Monday’s game in New Orleans. As expected, wide receiver Michael Campanaro (hamstring) will rest Sunday after practicing on a very limited basis this week. Harbaugh indicated Friday that it was unlikely that the rookie would play against the Chargers.
Linebacker Arthur Brown is inactive for the 10th time in 12 games while veteran defensive tackle Terrence Cody is inactive for the third straight game since being activated from the physically unable to perform list.
Prior to Sunday’s game, cornerback Asa Jackson went through a workout with secondary coach Steve Spagnuolo as he aims to be activated from injured reserve-designated to return as early as next Sunday’s game in Miami. Jackson has been practicing since Nov. 21 and appears to be progressing well from the turf toe injury suffered on Oct. 5.
San Diego revealed no surprises to its inactive list as nose tackle Ryan Carrethers (elbow), linebacker Andrew Gachkar (knee), and guard Ryan Miller (groin) were all deactivated for Week 13.
The Chargers made a roster move on Saturday, signing rookie offensive lineman Jeremiah Sirles to the 53-man roster and releasing safety Adrian Phillips. Sirles was previously on the team’s practice squad.
The Ravens will be playing San Diego for the 10th time in their regular-season history as they own a 5-4 record. Baltimore won the only two regular-season meetings between the teams at M&T Bank Stadium, earning victories in 2000 and 2006. The Chargers will face a difficult task in trying to become the first West Coast team to beat the Ravens in Baltimore in 12 all-time tries.
Sunday’s forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with temperatures reaching the mid-50s and winds up to eight miles per hour.
The referee for Sunday’s game will be Walt Anderson.
The Ravens will be wearing purple jerseys with white pants while San Diego dons its white tops with navy blue pants.
Below are Sunday’s inactives:
BALTIMORE
NT Terrence Cody
WR Michael Campanaro
LB Arthur Brown
DE DeAngelo Tyson
C Gino Gradkowski
CB Rashaan Melvin
OL Jah Reid
SAN DIEGO
WR Dontrelle Inman
RB Ronnie Brown
LB Andrew Gachkar
DT Damion Square
G Ryan Miller
NT Ryan Carrethers
LB Cordarro Law
