2. GATES IS KEPT UNDER CONTROL. The Chargers have a boatload of offensive talent, but big and athletic tight end Antonio Gates stands out. Gates has 75 career touchdown catches, including six this year despite playing in just nine games. So concerned about Gates, the Green Bay Packers went as far as putting their top cornerback (Charles Woodson) on him. It will be interesting to see who the Ravens match up with Gates, but whoever it is, he will have his hands full.
