Speed kills and they got a speedster in the 4.34 John Brown. He is having a great year so far.

Marcus William better not underestimate Flacco's deep ball and simply play it safe with protecting the back end at all cost.

Speesters have killed us all season. Callaway, Evans, Jackson, Ridley... So, I feel the secondary has something to prove and that is shutting down the deep ball.

Just be prepared for Flacco to go deep - they believe in 3-4 deep shots per game.
This sounds cliche, but this is a game where the Saints will really need to control the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball in order to be successful. Hit Flacco often, disrupt the timing between him and the receivers, and make it difficult for them to run the ball.
Look, the Ravens are going to have some success scoring and will probably sack Drew a couple of times; they are also difficult to run on. The Saints just need to stay the course and don’t turn the ball over and be prepared to make in-game and half-time adjustments. I think we’ll be fine.

I have to say that I like John Brown. He's from my alma mater Pittsburg State University. They actually won the Division II national championship while I was sitting in my graduation ceremony, and he was on that squad. He's got some serious speed. He will definitely test Williams, but I have faith.

Starts with stopping the run. It'll shut down their play action game. We're good at that. If we can keep them behind the chains, the pass rush will have a chance. I think we'll continue to see the D line improve as a whole. As Davenport starts making his presence felt, it'll create opportunities for the other guys as well.

If Flacco stands clean, he can drop some dimes and John Brown can get behind any secondary.

He's definitely the guy to fear most, but by the numbers, Willie Snead is actually tied for the team lead in catches. He also catches a high percentage of his targets, but despite both of these things, he is only third in yards. It suggests he's doing just what he did here (except last year, when he did basically nothing), which is catch short passes for first downs (which he leads their team in).

I hope we play physical like last game. We did get hurt, but we finally have some size on defense and their young. I knew we were gonna win after that first hit on AP. I was like "Dang... the media had it all wrong. We have something against him" 🤣
