4 Takes: Which Dallas Players Must Ravens Contain?

Though the Dallas Cowboys have struggled at 2-2, they have a number of playmakers on both sides of the ball. Such as, DE DeMarcus Ware and a secondary ranked first agaisnt the pass. On offense they have TE Jason Witten, WR Dez Bryant, WR Miles Austin and running back DeMarco Murray.

We pose the question to our Baltimore Gridiron Columnists:  

Which Dallas player(s) must be contained this Sunday to secure a victory?

Ben Zinman:

“Ravens return home to face the Cowboys comforted by the biggest home field advantage to date in the  NFL. OLB/DE DeMarcus Ware represents the most imposing  threat to victory on Sunday. A combination of Ray Rice and No-Huddle sets could neutralize his effectiveness.”

Matt Jergensen:

Tony Romo is the player they need to bother the most in order to win this Sunday. It’s been proven so far that if you are physical with the Cowboys then they don’t usually respond very well. This bodes well for the Ravens who love the hard pounding style that is the AFC North. The Cowboy attack has plenty of talent but if its leader is flustered and doing strange things under center they can be beaten.”

Gene Winner:

“The Cowboys receiving core pose the biggest challenge. WR Miles Austin and TE Jason Witten are excellent route runners and both have great hands. The Ravens secondary must clamp down. The biggest way to neutralize the Cowboys passing attack besides solid coverage is pressure on QB Tony Romo. Romo can be evasive in the pocket, but when under pressure he forces many throws. The Ravens defense, specifically the front seven will need to keep up the pressure.”

Jonathan Scruggs:

“The Ravens have got to contain DeMarcus Ware. He’s an absolute force and plays at talent level above most everyone else on the Cowboys roster. He is an all pro player, and unlike other all pros, he deserves every ounce of the credit he receives. If Joe and the Ravens’ offense hopes to get anywhere through the air on Sunday. Michael Oher is going to have to his best to limit Ware.”
