Rob Long: Ravens/Cards Preview
Last week, I thumped my chest screaming about how the Baltimore Ravens were going to beat up on the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday Night Football. That did not happen and I’m still trying to get over it.
This week, the Arizona Cardinals are coming into town sporting a 1-5 record. Sound familiar? The Cards are not a good football team, no matter what John Harbaugh tries to tell you. This should be a game where the Ravens beat the Cards and take out some frustration from the loss to the Jags. Will it happen? Well, that remains to be seen.
The Ravens defense has been incredible. Even with Larry Fitzgerald, that type of performance should be duplicated. The last time Kevin Kolb was in Baltimore, it did not turn out too good for him.
Offensively, the Ravens are facing one of the worse pass defenses in the league that gives up over 270 yards a game. I don’t want to hear how the Cards’ defense is underrated if the Ravens passing game struggles. They’re bad and that’s all there is to it.
