Monday Night Football: Ravens at Lions Open Thread

The Ravens will need to figure out a way to slow down the best receiver in the NFL, Calvin Johnson (pictured). - Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Monday Night Football Open Thread.

In almost a must-win game for both teams as the playoffs near, the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens (7-6) travel to Detroit to face the Lions (7-6) at Ford Field on Monday Night Football.

Game Time: 8:40 p.m. ET

TV: ESPN

Online: Audio Pass | Game Rewind

Odds: Lions -5.5

WIll the Lions, who will win the NFC North if they can win their last three games, be able to stop quarterback Joe Flacco and the Ravens deep passing game to receivers Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones with a secondary that has struggled all season? And will the Ravens, who need a win to keep pace with the Miami Dolphins in the wildcard race, have a solution for Lions' receiver Calvin Johnson who will be playing with a little extra motivation after Ravens safety Matt Elam called him "old?" And will the Ravens running backs led by Ray Rice finally start producing like they have in the past? Use this as an Open Thread to discuss the action.
