Thursday Night Football returns.
Tonight we've got the Baltimore Ravens vs. Atlanta Falcons on NFL Network.
This also marks our annual questions to Time Warner: Why can't you get a deal done with NFLN? Why can't we watch NFLN, too? I don't care how it happens. I'd pay a few bucks extra as well. But why can't you give us NFL Network?
Baltimore Ravens vs. Atlanta Falcons Live on Thursday Night Football – Week 11 of the NFL regular season starts with the battle between Baltimore Ravens and Atlanta Falcons. This is the first time this season that the NFL starts early on a Thursday night and not just an early start but a big game between two competing teams.
Both teams are coming into this game with a NFL standing of 6-2. The Ravens deeated the Miami Dolphins in last week at 26-10 while Falcons beat the Buccaneers at a score of 27-21. This game is important for both teams as this will determine their positions in their respective divisions. Atlanta Falcons are currently holds a half game lead over the defending Super Bowl 2010 champion New Orleans Saints in the NFC South Division while Baltimore Ravens are tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC North Division.
When it comes to power and strength, Atlanta Falcons leads against the Baltimore Ravens. The Falcons are within the top 10 teams when it comes to scoring, yards and rushing yards while the Ravens are in the top 15 teams. The Falcons have to prepare for the offensive and defensive strategy of the Ravens which had been very effective against various teams. They would never be on top of AFC North if not for a very good game plan and play by play offense and defense.
Falcons coach Mike Smith immediately went on training after winning the game last Sunday to devise a game plan for Thursday’s Night battle against the Ravens. Ravens coach John Harbaugh did the same for his team.
