Three things that need to go right for Ravens vs. Texans

December 09, 2010|By Jamison Hensley, Th Baltimore Sun

Three things that need to go right …

1. Terrell Suggs continues to sizzle. The Ravens linebacker proved he could take over a game Sunday night against Pittsburgh. He should dominate again against left tackle Duane Brown, who has allowed 24 ½ sacks the past three seasons.

2. Contain wide receiver Andre Johnson. The Ravens have a history of quieting Houston's top target, holding him to 11 receptions, 136 yards and no touchdowns in two meetings. A high ankle sprain is keeping Johnson from playing at full strength.

3. Exploit Texans' secondary. The easiest way to beat Houston is to shred its pass defense, which has given up three 300-yard passers in the past four games. Joe Flacco, it's time to loosen up that arm.
