Here we go, Saints Fans. The Day of Raven-ing is here. We face a 9-4 Ravens team that is (on paper) much stronger than any team we've faced since the Pittsburgh Steelers back on Halloween. We will see how we stack up against a serious playoff contender.
Did you hear it's supposed to be cold today in Baltimore? Go here for the late-breaking, current, up-to-the-minute, fast-action news team weather conditions. I've set it up to open in a separate window so you can toggle back and forth as you read this post...you're welcome.
Jeff Duncan gives passing mention to Chris Ivory not playing today in his column today, but he does not cite a source on that nugget, so who knows where that came from. I've yet to see the inactive list for today. We will see.
If you make the jump (and I, for one, hope that you will) you will also see player tweets, Drew Brees and Scott Shanle videos, and the usual assortment of Sunday morning game previews, featurettes, what to watch for in the game stories , and scouting reports.
jeffduncantp Chris Ivory made the trip to Baltimore with the#Saints. Officially he's a game-time decision. I think its very doubtful that he plays Sun.
