ExtremeRavens: The Sanctuary

Peter King wears the purple goggles too

New Orleans Saints (10-3) at Baltimore Ravens (9-4)

Classic case of the more desperate team winning. Even though the Baltimore D was terrible down the stretch at Houston (allowing 99- and 95-yard fourth-quarter drives), I say the Ravens have a couple of second-half stops in them. Side note: The last time these teams met, in 2006, Steve McNair outdueled Drew Brees, throwing for two touchdowns and running for another.

Peter Schmuck's on the bandwagon too...


News item: The Ravens face one of the premier passers in the NFL on Sunday when Drew Brees and the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints visit M&T Bank Stadium in a game with significant playoff implications for both teams.


My take: It's tempting to look at what Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub did in the fourth quarter on Monday night and wonder how the Ravens are going to stop another multi-talented offensive team — especially off another short practice week — but for reasons I can't explain, I'm pretty confident they will.

Hey! Here's one more Peter...


Pete Prisco expects the Ravens to beat the Saints by a touchdown.


The Baltimore pass defense really struggled Monday night against Houston, nearly costing them a game. They aren't as good against the pass this season, and that's not a good thing against Drew Brees. The Saints get the ball out quickly, which could be a problem for the Ravens. This might be a game for Ray Rice to run the ball at a Saints defense that isn't great against the run. Baltimore will find a way at home, even on a short week.
