The Ravens are home taking on the defending Super Bowl champs, New York Giants:
What’s going to be the key match-up today?
Our Gridiron Staff give their key match-up to watch:
“A key match-up Sunday will be the Ravens receivers versus the Giants secondary. Yes, the offensive line has to protect and Ray Rice has to be given his carries. Yet, the Giants pass defense has had their struggles. The Ravens be smart to attack the secondary early in order to open up the run game for Rice. If Flacco and his receivers don’t get on track early, it could be another frustrating day for fans.”
“The Giants have given up 16 sacks so far during the 2012 season making the offensive line the most proficient among all 32 teams at keeping its QB Eli Manning upright. The Ravens D needs to try to disguise its blitz packages and not give Eli anytime to set. Likewise the Oline for the Ravens needs to give Flacco more time to step up. Flacco will need to begin making greater use of the hurry-up.”
