The Ravens believe there will be opportunities to exploit the aggressive press coverage if their offensive linemen can hold their blocks long enough for their speedy outside receivers to get out of a jam. That won't be easy against Cowboys pass rusher DeMarcus Ware, whom Harbaugh called "a game wrecker" and "one of the premier players in the National Football League."
"Part of what makes them a good pass defense is that they have a good pass rush," Flacco said.
Quick pressure with press coverage can throw off the quarterback's timing with his receivers. That happened at times in the 24-23 loss in Philadelphia in Week 2. With Trent Cole and Jason Babin crashing the pocket, Flacco averaged just 5.5 yards per attempt.
