Baltimore Ravens: 5 Keys to Victory vs. Arizona Cardinals

1 of 6

It’s nice to know that entering Week 7 that our Sunday will be much more relaxed. You can spend your Sunday not throwing a tantrum. Maybe watch some of the other NFL games as the NFL will be on your television from 9:30 a.m. until approximately 11:30.

There is still plenty for Ravens fans to worry about come game time: potentially staying up late to watch another disappointment. That means the start of the work week will not be too bad, but Tuesday morning could be a struggle.

It’s been a difficult season for the Ravens. This could be the worst team in franchise history, but they still have been competitive. Every game has been decided by six points or less and many of those games the Ravens had a late lead before squandering it away. Some fans have clamored that the Ravens could easily be 5-1 instead of 1-5.

But they are not. In fact, the lone win can be credited to the leg of Josh Scobee. The defense has not been able to make any stops in crucial moments and the offense has been careless at moments. That is not a recipe for winning football.

Now the Ravens travel for another game out west against a team that looks like an early favorite to represent the NFC in Super Bowl 50. While the Cardinals are sitting pretty with a 4-2 record and have been very impressive at times, they are far from a perfect team. They were beat at home by the St. Louis Rams and did not play well last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Cardinals will likely come out a pretty angry team for letting third-string quarterback Landry Jones to beat them. This has all the makings of being a bad loss, but the NFL is strange at times and the Ravens could shock us all.

If Baltimore is going to pull off a road upset on Monday night, here are the keys to victory.
