Baltimore Ravens at Arizona Cardinals Monday Night Football Open Thread

Tonight's Monday Night Football game is between the 1-5 Baltimore Ravens and the 4-2 Arizona Cardinals. The Ravens are probably the most disappointing team of the year, except for maybe the Detroit Lions, and the Cardinals are a powerhouse team that figures to make a strong playoff push this year.

You might recognize a couple of faces on the Cardinals as former key players for the Oakland Raiders, their starting QB is Carson Palmer and their starting LT is Jared Veldheer. The Raiders are happy with their replacements so no harm, no foul but that doesn't mean that it isn't a touchy subject at times around these parts.

The Ravens are one of the three teams that the Raiders have won against, though since they are only 1-5 it isn't really saying all that much. They still have a solid QB in Joe Flacco and one of my favorite receivers of all time in Steve Smith. If they are able to beat the Cardinals tonight it will be quite the surprise though.
