Today’s game in Baltimore is just as important as the last few have been. With the home field advantage and their fans by their side, the Ravens are looking the clench their fourth win of the season.
Third year wide receiver Torrey Smith and rookie Marlon Brown have established themselves as the Ravens “go-to” players for offense. Smith has 36 receptions for 707 yards and one touchdown, followed by Brown who has 26 receptions for 297 yards and five touchdowns. The struggling Ravens offense has leaned on these two key players who have risen to the challenge. Watch for these two vital players to step up and be leaders for the Ravens.
Daryl Smith and Terrell Suggs have been the proven leaders of the defense since the absence of Ray Lewis and Ed Reed. Smith has a total of 71 tackles followed by Suggs with 60 tackles. Suggs is also the leader of the team in sacks with nine total for the year. Suggs is also tanked top five in sacks this year. Elvis Dumervil has been a big impact for the Ravens defense, putting up 5.5 sacks on the year. Watch Suggs, Dumervil, and Smith to have an impact on the Bengals offense.
Special teams has been a solid unit throughout the season thus far. With the early success of punt and kick returns, Tandon Doss and Jacoby Jones don’t see many kicks coming their way any more. Teams are frightened that these two speedsters could have a detrimental impact on the game for the Ravens. If the ball gets in their hands, watch out!
