Come Sunday night, either the Ravens (5-2) or the Cardinals (1-6) will emerge victorious following their Week 8 clash in Arizona unless there is an odd-looking tie between both franchises.
The Flock is on the road after playing a home game for the first time in a month last Sunday, but fear nothing if you're a resident of the Baltimore area as the Ravens will return to The Bank a week from now and play the following three games home.
These two squads met in 2019 in their most recent matchup and the hosts, your Baltimore Ravens, won 23-17 against a very different Cardinals team led by Kyler Murray in his second game as a pro since entering the NFL earlier that year.
A much more experienced quarterback these days, Murray won't feature for the Cardinals if all goes according to the expectations even though he's been cleared to play on Sunday. The Ravens deployed Lamar Jackson in 2019 in his second game on the way to win the MVP award, and the starting QB of the Flock will be there once more this weekend.
Ravens vs. Cardinals Week 8: All you need to know
When and where
The Ravens returned to The Bank for a brief spell of time last Sunday but they will be on the road once more this Sunday. That said, the Flock will stop flying following this week's clash against the Cardinals in Arizona, with three home games between Week 9 and and Week 11, both included.
The desert of the West Coast will witness the unstoppable Ravens taking on the Cardinals as the battle of the birds promises to be a rather unbalanced one with the former team having won 71% of their games and the latter just 14 percent of their own.
The Ravens are on the road in Week 8 as Baltimore and Arizona will square off on Sunday with kick-off scheduled to take place at 4:25 p.m. ET (1:25 a.m. PT for those on the West Coast; 10:25 p.m. CET for those in Europe).
The forecast for Sunday at kick-off time in Arizona, according to AccuWeather, predicts 82 degrees... and that's it because the Cardinals play in a stadium with a retractable roof so there will be no wind nor bad weather/rain to worry about anyway. Perks of owning such a venue.
The Ravens head into Week 8 with a reasonbly clean bill of health as only starting safety Marcus Williams was ruled out on Friday for this weekend matchup. Three other players, however, were listed as questionable including Tylan Wallace, Keaton Mitchell, and Odafe Oweh.
Odell Beckham hit the injury report earlier this week but was able to log a full practice on Friday and was removed from the report ahead of Sunday. That was also the case with Roquan Smith, who suffered a shoulder issue but recovered from it in time.
Meanwhile, the Cardinals listed starting QB Kyler Murray as "doubtful" to play on Sunday although their head coach said that he is "available to play." Nobody believed him, so whatever. Starting RB James Conner and TE Zach Ertz are out injured and won't play in Week 8.
Wide receiver Greg Dortch was listed as questionable for Sunday with an ankle injury. Cornerback Antonio Hamilton (groin) and safety Jalen Thompson (hamstring) also entered the weekend as "questionable" to face Baltimore on Sunday.
