Detroit Lions Face Do or Die Scenario on Monday Night Foootball
The Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens continue to build on a solid fourth quarter to their season as they look forward to defeating the Detroit Lions at Ford Field. The Ravens are on a positive streak and have accomplished a task that the Lions can only dream of by winning three consecutive games. Baltimore’s championship experience is finally paying off after a disastrous 4-6 start as a progressive winning formula is slowly steering the team toward the postseason.
The Lions’ fans will be dressed in Honolulu Blue hoping their team shows up to work while the Ravens’ fan base has high expectations for their team to go back to the playoffs and defend the Lombardi Trophy. Both teams take the field on Monday Night Football with identical 7-6 records and still in playoff contention, but playing the Detroit Lions at home always makes things more exciting. In my opinion we will be seeing a conservative Ravens offense that will try to rack up some points by remaining consistent through four quarters and playing mistake free football. On the contrary, be on the lookout for a Lions offense willing to gamble as they call explosive plays to put away the game early. They will try to replicate their last win against the Green Bay Packers in front of a sold-out Ford Field.
Unfortunately for the Lions, the Ravens know what it takes to win and they arrive riding their finest momentum of the season; the last time they lost was against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field on November 17 by a mere three points. The Denver Broncos have been the only team capable of lighting up the scoreboard against a tough Ravens’ defense — no other team has been able to defeat them by more than six points. The Lions’ offense remains very inconsistent with a high turnover ratio, but they are the only other offensive powerhouse in the Ravens’ schedule with enough quality to light up the scoreboard with ease.

WATCH: Three amazing plays from Brandin Cooks that will make your jaw drop
Brandin Cooks didn't get the credit he deserved coming out of his rookie season.

Still, though, Cooks was impressive with 53 receptions for 550 yards and three touchdowns in just seven starts. Imagine what he could do with a full, healthy season Read More
