    Tale Of The Tape: Baltimore Ravens At New Orleans Saints

    The Ravens are dependent on Joe Flacco to play his best football down the stretch if they are going to make a run at the AFC North title. Flacco is certainly capable of getting hot and putting big numbers up on the scoreboard.

    Tale Of The Tape: Arizona Cardinals At Seattle Seahawks

    The Cardinals have the best record in the league through 10 games, but this game at Seattle will be very difficult to win because the Seahawks’ hard-nosed defense is likely to come with its best effort.
