RAVENS PASS OFFENSE VS. CHARGERS PASS DEFENSE

The Chargers love to match up their cornerbacks, Antoine Cason and Quentin Jammer, one-on-one on the outside and allow veteran free safety Eric Weddle to roam sideline to sideline. Weddle is tied for the NFL lead with seven interceptions, which is half of the Chargers' team total. Overall, the Chargers allow 201.5 passing yards a game, the seventh lowest total in the NFL. However, they only have 22 sacks all season -- only four NFL teams have fewer -- and seven of them are by former Ravens linebacker Antwan Barnes, who will likely be working against Michael Oher for most of Sunday. With the success of their running game, the Ravens haven't asked quarterback Joe Flacco to do too much over the last two weeks, and their pass offense has dropped to 15th in the NFL at 228.8 yards per game as a result. In his last five December games -- all Ravens victories -- Flacco has thrown eight touchdowns and just two interceptions and posted a 97.1 quarterback rating. He's also only been sacked four times over the past four games, tied for the fewest in the league during that span. Rookie Torrey Smith leads the Ravens with six receiving touchdowns, and with one more he'll set the franchise's all-time rookie record. EDGE: EVEN
