    Sacks
    9 - 6​

    Those stats are both teams games against the Raiders (our game with the Titans, and the Ravens week one game is not factored in).

    This is a straight comparison on how SD and Balt did vs. a common opponent.

    Chargers will beat the Ravens most likely but the game will be very close and very physical. I watched the entire Baltimore game today, Jamal Lewis and Musa Smith will not run on us. The O-line will not be able to contain our pass rush and Ogden went down today I don't know the extent of his injury though. They have holes in their defense if we attack the air. They are not a disciplined team and commit stupid penalties. The key to this game is Philip Rivers and the WRs and after getting a feel for the Ravens pass defense I think we can pick them apart with the technicians we have in McCardell and Parker.

    Advantage us though, coming off bye week will give "Big Philly Style" a chance to scout every inch of there defense.

    Defenses are pretty even, but we have a better offense by far

    Ravens have a good TE (Heap) and they may force Merriman to cover him (like the Titans did) which may limit his pass rush opportunites.

    In all likeliness they'll put Kiel or Edwards on Heap but I don't say its a better offer.
    I think our offensive line is better then theirs. Our TEs are better, our RBs are better, and I frankly think our LBs are better. The rest is a real tossup. The key will be to smash the crap out of McNair and pound the ball away from Halota Ngata (I'm already wary of running against him)

    There D is slightly better, but our O is a lot better than theres.

    We have a couple huge advantages!!!

    1. Bye week(2 weeks to prep, this is big)

    2. LT/Turner are a lot better than Jamal Lewis/Anderson(better running game all around)

    3. Gates better than Heap(better passing game too)

    4. Clutch veteran recievers (Theres are very young)

    5. They will underestimate us(as always happens with east coast bias) Especially when were on D
