Greetings, Raider Nation! We are nearly halfway through the regular season, which is crazy because I could have sworn it only started a few days ago. Time flies like a rocket. Fruit flies like a banana.
Tonight’s Thursday Night Football matchup features two teams which are trying to cling to playoff hopes in the AFC. The Miami Dolphins are 4-2, tied for second place in the AFC East, but have a point differential of -20. The Ravens are 3-4, with a point differential of -18. So clearly this will be a great game.
The Dolphins are without starting quarterback Jay Cutler, and will start Matt Moore, Destroyer of Worlds. Look for them to lean heavily on their running game. The Ravens will start Joe Flacco, so look for them to complete plenty of passes to the Earth itself. The ground will catch 20 passes from Flacco for 350 yards and five scores. If there is any justice in the world, the Earth will then proceed to swallow up both these teams and the entire city of Baltimore in the middle of the third quarter.
