The Baltimore Ravens officially announced to the football world that they're legitimate Super Bowl contenders in Week 7 when they trounced the Detroit Lions in the biggest blowout of the week.

Now, they go from taking on one of the best teams in the NFC to one of the worst when they head to Arizona to face the Diamondbacks. Can they win in impressive fashion once again? I certainly think so and I'll be betting on them to do exactly that.

Ravens vs. Cardinals key players to watch

Baltimore Ravens

Lamar Jackson: If Lamar Jackson's arm can stay as hot as it was last week against the Lions, the Ravens might just be the best team in the NFL. He completed 77.8% of passes for 357 yards, three touchdowns, and zero interceptions. He used his legs to give his receivers time to get open and it was a thing of beauty. It'll be interesting to see if he can have a repeat performance against the Cardinals.

Arizona Cardinals

Marquise Brown: The Cardinals' wide receiver is by far their best option through the air for them. He has hauled in 32 receptions for 383 yards and three touchdowns. If the Cardinals want any hope of keeping pace with the Ravens, they need Hollywood Brown to have another big game.

Ravens vs. Cardinals prediction and pick

I've been high on the Ravens the past few weeks, going as far as to bet on them to win the Super Bowl last week. I see no reason to jump off the hype train this week when they take on the Cardinals.

Baltimore is second in the league in Net Yards per Play at +1.6. Only the Dolphins rank better than them. Their defense has been elite week in and week out, and now their offense seems to have woken up as well.

Meanwhile, the Cardinals have begun to look like the team we thought they would be before the season started. It's time to throw out and forget about their early-season success. They have a Net Yards per Play of -1 over their last three games and their quarterback situation is a disaster.

I can't see their offense keeping pace with the Ravens. I think Baltimore wins this one in a blowout.

Odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
