With the conclusion of this Week 9 Monday Night Football game between the New Orleans Saints and Baltimore Ravens, we’re officially halfway through the season.
Both teams got terrible news this week, however, as the Ravens learned they’d be without wide receiver Rashod Bateman for the season, and the Saints also announced that wide receiver Michael Thomas would be out for the year.

Let’s dive into Saints vs. Ravens.
Traveling on the road, this game has a spread of less than three, so you can, to a certain extent, think about who you think will win outright.
Finishes with a point differential of less than three aren’t too common in the NFL.
The total in this game is approaching 50 at 48 or 48.5, depending on where you look, so we should expect some scoring in this one.
We’re siding with the Ravens here because the Saints are once again without cornerback Marshon Lattimore and this should help players like Devin Duvernay on the outside and DeSean Jackson. He was recently elevated from the practice squad.
Jackson is a significant presence in this one because, without Bateman, the deep threats were minimal, and Jackson allows for that.
The Ravens are susceptible to opponents' passing attacks, but with Jackson’s ability to throw the ball and his scrambling, the Ravens are the better squad here despite the Saints pitching a shutout just a week ago.
The Ravens win this one 31-27.
Without tight end Mark Andrews in the lineup, the weapons for quarterback Lamar Jackson and the Ravens are wearing thin.
Jackson has been on the team for a few weeks now on the practice squad, so he’s had time to get acquainted with the offense.
The Saints secondary is without Lattimore in this one, and Jackson has always been an excellent deep threat.
The Ravens will need to establish some kind of downfield passing attack to keep the Saints defense honest instead of swarming the line of scrimmage and waiting for the next running play.
Jackson should see at least one opportunity deep, and that’s all someone like him will need. This is worth the risk.
Dalton has thrown north of 225 yards three times in five starts this season, including his last two outings.
At home against the Ravens and their squishy secondary, Dalton will continue to get wide receiver Chris Olave and pass-catching running back Alvin Kamara involved.
The total in this game was 48 earlier this week, but with Andrews set to sit this one out, it’s now down to 46.5. The Ravens offense will find ways to score, and Dalton and the Saints will be able to throw with success against them.
Look for Dalton to continue airing it out in a plus matchup.
