Ravens defensive linemen Maake Kemoeatu and Kelly Gregg vs. Bengals offensive linemen Eric Steinbach, Rich Braham and Bobbie Williams
George Kokinis, the Ravens' pro personnel director, sizes up the top matchup against the Bengals:
Kemoeatu, an undrafted pickup in 2002, is a first-year starter at nose tackle. At 6 feet 5, 350 pounds, he is a big cog in the Ravens' No. 9 run defense. Gregg, a former practice squad player, started at nose tackle from 2002 to 2004 before shifting to defensive tackle this season. He is third on the team with 41 tackles. Steinbach has started at left guard since 2003, when he was drafted in the second round. Braham, a seven-year starter at center, is only the 12th player to play 12 or more seasons with the Bengals. Williams, a free-agent pickup from the Philadelphia Eagles in 2004, was the only Bengal on offense or defense to play every snap with his unit last year.
