5 of 5

Baltimore Ravens (1-5, will play Arizona Cardinals on Monday Night Football)

The Baltimore Ravens have not been playing well this season, but they’ll have a chance to redeem themselves tonight against the Arizona Cardinals on Monday Night Football. Joe Flacco has not performed well this season, but his lack of offensive weapons is a potential explanation for his down season. A win against Arizona could be nice, but even at 2-5, the Ravens would not be a very serious threat in an extremely top-heavy AFC.

While it’s a long shot to say that the Ravens could upset the Cardinals, anything can happen in today’s NFL.

3 Ways the Ravens can upset the Cardinals (Ebony Bird)

Spoiler alert: One of the three keys to victory is the Ravens not shooting themselves in the foot.

The Ravens are terrible at starting games (Baltimore Beatdown)

Baltimore has been a train wreck in the first halves of games in the 2015 season. The Ravens will need to get off to quicker starts if they want to contend.

Are the Ravens the best of the worst? (Baltimore Beatdown)

The Ravens are nowhere near where they were in 2014, but they still have some talent on the roster. Is this Ravens team the best of the one-win teams?

Is Baltimore as bad as its 1-5 Record? (ESPN)

Baltimore is clearly a bad team, but its 1-5 record may not show how talented this Ravens team truly is.

Joe Flacco wishes he was more comfortable in Ravens offense (ESPN)

Flacco has a serious disadvantage on offense, as the running game has been inconsistent, his line hasn’t played well and his receiving corps is perhaps the worst position group of its kind in the NFL.
