Game of the week Baltimore at New England, 6:30 p.m. Monday, ESPN.
The Ravens are back to playing strong defense, which helps offset their struggling offense. Baltimore has overachieved a bit in terms of its talent. New England won’t cruise to home-field advantage, with Oakland playing so well. Also, the Patriots have to play without injured all-pro tight end Rob Gronkowski. These teams have had huge matchups in the past decade, so there’s likely to be plenty of emotion Monday night.
