Gridiron Gab Week Three Preview: New England at Baltimore

Sun, 09/23 at 8:20 PM EDT

Home: M&T Bank Stadium

The Ravens are coming off a frustrating loss in Philadelphia. Inexplicably, the game plan only allowed Ray Rice 16 touches and QB Joe Flacco had 42 passing attempts. New England lost to the Arizona Cardinals, a team that shouldn’t have gone into Foxboro and win. There’s much on the line in this match-up, one of these teams will leave 1-2 on the season.

Ravens Coverage vs. Patriot’s Tight Ends:

There’s no doubt QB Tom Brady has one of the best tightend tandems in the NFL.  Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez have been prolific and a major focus for New England’s offense. The Ravens have to get creative and cover both players. A linebacker covering either is a recipe for disaster. You have to think the Ravens will mix some ‘nickel’ personnel in this match-up, especially on third downs.  Last week in Philadelphia the Ravens secondary gave up 8 receptions and 157 yards to tight end Bret Celek.  Injury Update: Aaron Hernandez will most likely miss this game (and the next few weeks) with an ankle injury.
