The showdown between the Ravens and Saints is one of the most intriguing matchups for Week 7. Can Baltimore prove that great defense halts even the most proficient offenses? Or will Drew Brees finally be able to best the Ravens, successfully recording a win against all 32 NFL teams?
In December, Week 7 could prove to be a pivotal point in the Ravens season. With a victory, Baltimore spoils the Saints four game win streak and can assert themselves as a true contender in the AFC. With a loss, questions will remain if Baltimore is a reliable team or only capable of inconsistent production.
This fan base is anxious for success, as the Ravens last made the postseason in 2014. Touting their trademark defensive prowess, Baltimore is building an offensive attack that is reliable enough to allow the D to shine. Taking down the NFL’s all time leading passer would go a long way towards to building momentum for the coming weeks, which include an always critical contest against the Steelers in Week 9.
