Three things that need to go right with the Ravens vs. Falcons

November 10, 2010|By Jamison Henlsey, The Baltimore Sun

1. Run the ball effectively. In Atlanta's two losses, the Falcons have given up an average of 148.5 yards on the ground. In their six wins, they've held teams to 78.3 yards rushing.

2. Joe Flacco continues to play smart. The Ravens quarterback hasn't thrown an interception in 129 straight passes (although a few have been dropped by defenders). That's the longest streak of Flacco's career and the third-longest in Ravens history.

3. Stop tight end Tony Gonzalez. When wide receiver Roddy White injured his knee last game, Atlanta leaned heavily on Gonzalez. The Ravens have limited starting tight ends to 27.7 yards receiving per game.
