THE MATCHUP: SAINTS vs. RAVENS 2022 WEEK 9
After shutting out the Las Vegas Raiders 24-0 in Week 8, the New Orleans Saints (3-5) are set to host the Baltimore Ravens (5-3) on Monday Night Football in Week 9 on Monday, Nov. 7, 2022 at 7:15 p.m. CST.
New Orleans bounced back last week after back-to-back losses, where surrendering big plays on defense needed to be corrected. Following a productive week of practice, preparation and corrections, the Saints defense allowed just 183 yards of total offense last week, including only 38 rushing yards and 3.3 yards per play. The Raiders didn't even cross midfield until 2:19 remaining in the fourth quarter.
Meanwhile, the Ravens enter Monday night after a mini bye, beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 27-22 on Oct. 27 and standing at 5-3 and in first place in the AFC North. QB Lamar Jackson completed 27-of-38 passes for 238 yards and two touchdowns and had nine carries for 43 yards in Tampa. On the year, Jackson leads the Ravens in passing with 1,635 yards and in rushing with 553 rushing yards. TE Mark Andrews leads Baltimore with 488 yards receiving and five TDs.
