Things don't get any easier for the Giants following their Week 5 trip to London, as they'll host a very tough Ravens team in Week 6.

The New York Giants declined an opportunity to take a bye week following their Week 5 trip across the pond to face the Packers and will keep the train rolling with a home date against the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens have averaged 26.8 points against the Giants in their seven regular-season meetings, the lowest of their scoring being 10 points in a November 16, 2008 loss to the Giants. More recently, though, the Ravens running game proved too much for the Giants defense to handle when the teams last met in 2020. Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson had his way with the Giants defense with running zone reads and RPOs. Still, the hope this year is that the Giants, who have struggled of late against mobile quarterbacks, are in a better place to handle that extra offensive element some opponents offer. A subplot to this game will be former Ravens defensive coordinator Wink Martindale looking to outsmart his old team. Martindale and the Ravens parted after last season, and since coming to the Giants, he's had his eye on developing a defense that dictates to the opponent. Given how well Martindale knows most of the Ravens offensive personnel from having had his defenses practice against them daily, will that give the Giants any added advantage?
