Most fans of the Baltimore Ravens will be rooting for head coach John Harbaugh's brother, Jim, to extend the San Francisco 49ers season and beat the visiting New Orleans Saints this afternoon on the west coast. This game is a tale of two completely different teams, one that prides itself on old-school Ravens-style defense and the other with an explosive offense that just dares you to try to outscore them.
Post your comments live in this 'Open Thread' as this game progresses to see who advances to the NFC Championship Game and whether they will host the New York Giants or travel to play the Green Bay Packers. Although it would be sweet to see a rematch of the Thanksgiving "Har-bowl" in the Super Bowl (or "Super HarBowl"), I have already predicted the Saints will score enough points to force the Niners to play catch-up and take them out of their comfort zone.
We'll see soon enough, so sit back, enjoy the game and keep it here on Baltimore Beatdown!
