1. Generate more production from the ground game. The Ravens have struggled to find consistency in the running attack, producing the fifth-worst yards per carry (3.7) in the NFL. But Tampa Bay has allowed a 100-yard rusher in six of its past eight games.

2. Take advantage of the play action. If the Ravens find success on the ground, they should be able to go over the top of the Buccaneers. Tampa Bay has given up eight passes over 40 yards, which is tied for third-most in the league.

3. Joe Flacco continues home streak. The best defense could be Flacco's ball security. One-third of the Buccaneers' total points have come from scoring off turnovers. Flacco hasn't thrown an interception at home this season (a span of 114 passes).
