Tonight's Monday Night Football contest includes two teams headed in opposite directions. 

The Arizona Cardinals are badly in need of a win. They've already lost three in a row, and the skid could easily extend to six. Luckily for Arizona, John Skelton and his undefeated (6-0) home record will be under center.

Meanwhile, the San Francisco 49ers are on a different path. They've been one of the league's steadiest teams and are looking to put the division in a stranglehold after the events of the weekend (both Seattle and St. Louis lost). 

As the storm rages in the Northeast, let's get this desert battle started.
