The Baltimore Ravens will look to get back on track this weekend against the Arizona Cardinals. The Week 8 picks and predictions all lean in favor of the Ray Rice led Ravens.

The Baltimore Ravens surprisingly dropped last week's game to the Jacksonville Jaguars, but they have a good chance at redemption when they host the Arizona Cardinals at home on Sunday. It will be interesting to see what the Week 8 NFL picks and predictions say about two teams that haven't looked excellent as of late.

The Ravens mustered just a single touchdown against the Jaguars last weekend, but Sports Illustrated's Peter King thinks they'll amp up their scoring output this weekend as he predicts a 20-13 victory for Baltimore.

And the little man shall lead them. Ray Rice's 165 total yards get the Ravens back on track. Meanwhile, all over M&T Bank concession stands Sunday afternoon, fans in purple from head to toe ask each other: "How is it possible in this day and age of the air filled with footballs that our quarterback is barely completing five of every 10 throws?"

The entire panel at CBS Sports agrees with Kings' Ravens pick while ESPN was also unanimous in picking the home Ravens.
