Mike Preston's matchups: Ravens vs. Texans

December 12, 2010

Ravens DE/OLB Terrell Suggs vs. Texans OT Duane Brown: Suggs is having a great season, and may have had the best game of his career last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Brown has struggled at times, especially against long, physical outside linebackers like Suggs. Suggs could be in for another big game. Edge: Ravens.

Ravens CB Chris Carr vs. Texans WR Andre Johnson: Carr has been the Ravens' steadiest player in the secondary. He has the speed to match up with Johnson, but not the physical size. Johnson is the prototype receiver: big, strong, fast and extremely explosive. Edge: Texans.

Ravens OT Michael Oher vs. Texans DE Mario Williams: Oher has been consistent for the most part, but has also struggled. He wants to get a quick jump, but hasn't mastered the technique off the snap yet. Williams is the lone stud of the Houston defense. He can make life miserable for both Oher and Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco. Edge: Texans.
