Monday Night Football tonight will cap off what has been a crazy week in the NFL. Parity is to be expected in this league, but not to the extent that we are seeing during the 2022 NFL season. The playoff picture is as murky as can be, and this game tonight could have serious implications for both teams and their respective conferences. Who is playing, what time does the game start, and how can you watch it?

Baltimore Ravens (5-3) vs. New Orleans Saints (3-5)
The Caesars Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana
Monday Night Football tonight will showcase the Baltimore Ravens as they travel to the Superdome to take on the New Orleans Saints. Locked in a tight battle for the AFC North, the Ravens come into this one with question marks at some key positions and likely without quarterback Lamar Jackson’s favorite target Mark Andrews.
In addition to Andrews, the Ravens will also be without their No. 1 wide receiver Rashod Bateman and, in all likelihood, running back Gus Edwards. Although this would be the Ravens’ third consecutive victory coming off the heels of Jackson’s impressive performance against the Buccaneers, the injury report has not been kind to them.
Meanwhile, the Saints continue to try and stay relevant in an NFC South division that is currently being led by the aforementioned Buccaneers with a lackluster 4-5 record. Relevancy will be a tough task as long as they continue to move forward with QB Andy Dalton, especially during prime-time spots. Dalton is a less-than-impressive 6-19 overall in his career when the lights are the brightest.
New Orleans has lost two of their last three, but they are possibly starting to figure things out after an impressive 24-0 shutout victory against the Raiders last week. The defense made sure Las Vegas did not cross the 50-yard line until late in the fourth quarter. Will that defense have the same success against a hard-to-contain Jackson and this Ravens offense?
The current betting line has Baltimore laying less than a field goal on the road, which makes sense considering the injury situations for both teams. Yes, the Ravens are injured. However, the Saints are not the epitome of health right now either. Michael Thomas is likely out for the year, and big named contributors Jarvis Landry and Marshon Lattimore will both miss time.
PFN’s Betting Director BJ Rudell wrote about this Monday Night Football game tonight in his Week 9 picks and predictions. As expected, a huge focus in this game will be the injury situations for both squads, and he made that clear in his prediction.
“The betting line has shifted from 3 to 2.5, perhaps because Baltimore’s injury woes remain concerning, including losing Rashod Bateman for the rest of the season.
“While the Saints have adjusted (somewhat) to their brutal injuries at wideout (including losing Michael Thomas for the season), the Ravens now have little room for error if Mark Andrews isn’t close to 100%. Although we don’t yet know everyone who will take the field or how healthy they’ll be, I’m sticking with the Saints to cover and win.”
