It is time for the Cardinals to face the Baltimore Ravens.

Now please do something good during this game so that I can actually enjoy going through the gamethread all over again when I compile the highlight post.

Arizona Cardinals News:

Arizona Cardinals look to end 5-game losing streak against Baltimore Ravens
The working theory is that the Ravens' loss last Monday night means they will be focused and angry Sunday when they play the Cardinals, who at 1-5, would prefer the Ravens be distracted and passive. That theory, however, doesn't work for Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald. The Ravens' losing to the Jaguars on national television and dropping to 4-2 is one thing. You want angry, Fitzgerald said, try going six weeks (and counting) without winning.

Cardinals' Spanish-radio voices help team's popularity in United States, Mexico
There is that moment when casual soccer fans are watching a World Cup match and the replay of goal is not the priority. We flip the channel hurriedly to the Spanish-language broadcast to catch Andres Cantor bellow, "Gooooooooooool." If Larry Fitzgerald gets behind the Baltimore secondary for a touchdown Sunday, you might just want to give a listen to how Gabriel Trujillo calls it on KBMB-AM (710), an ESPN Deportes affiliate, and KVVM-FM (107.1). You think you're excited? Wait until you hear Trujillo, or "LaVozRoja" (The Red Voice) as his Twitter handle goes.

ASU football trounces Colorado on homecoming
Brock Osweiler threw for 307 yards and two touchdowns, Cameron Marshall added three scores on the ground and No. 23 ASU avoided a letdown with a 48-14 rout over Colorado on Saturday. In control of the Pac-12 South, Arizona State couldn't afford a slip-up against an injury-riddled, 31-point underdog. The Sun Devils (6-2, 4-1 Pac-12) made sure there wasn't one with a dominating performance, manhandling the Buffaloes on both sides of the ball while jumping out to a 21-point lead in the first quarter.

Daymond Langkow's overtime goal lifts Coyotes to win
No one doubted Radim Vrbata would break out of the goal-scoring doldrums at some point. He did that with a nifty goal to tie the score in the second period - but the Coyotes' right winger was far from finished. Vrbata scored two goals and assisted on Daymond Langkow's game-winner in overtime in a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night in front of 10,379 at Jobing.com Arena.
