Monday Night Football: Ravens vs. CardinalsPublished October 26, 2015 by Sol FH
The Baltimore Ravens vs Arizona Cardinals in this week's Monday Night Football match up live at 1:30 GMT.
The odds couldn't be any sweeter for an underdog victory on this week's Monday Night Football rivalry. The 1-4 Baltimore Ravens travel to Arizona to take on the 4-2 Cardinals and both teams are ready to bounce back after losing their games last week. The Ravens lost a hard fought battle to the 49ers, while the Cardinals thought that they should have won their game against the Steelers. These AFC North opponents are ready to do battle in the desert and if they follow these keys to victory, it could go either way.
Even though the Baltimore Ravens are on the way to one of their worst seasons of franchise history, they are still basically the same team that won the Super Bowl just a few years ago. Say what you want about Joe Flacco he is a QB that gets the job done, but has never really shined as a league best. Defense will play a major role tonight and the Raven's defense must get pressure on Carson Palmer throughout the game. Also establishing their run game early and constantly is a must for the Ravens tonight and Justin Forsett needs to get the ball more.
The Cardinals were in control last week until giving up 22 unanswered points in the second half leading to their loss. Tonight's game we will need to see the Cards continue with their red zone dominance, leading to scores on 16 of 17 possessions inside opponents'' 20-yard line. Palmer needs to start airing the ball out more and find longer pickups that we have seen lately. If Palmer can use Andre Ellington, more now that he is healthy it will add yet another dimension to his already deadly offense.
