3 questions with Ravens inside linebacker Jameel McClain
Aside from an uncharacteristic 157-yard outburst by the Philadelphia Eagles' Brent Celek in Week 2, the Ravens have succeeded at containing opposing tight ends this season. Only one has caught a touchdown, the Houston Texans' Owen Daniels, and none since Celek have reached 90 yards receiving. The Ravens will face another tough tight end Sunday in the San Diego Chargers' Antonio Gates, who leads the team in touchdown catches with four and ranks second in yards with 355. Ravens inside linebacker Jameel McClain has been thrown at 28 times this season — the most among Ravens linebackers, according to Pro Football Focus — but he has yet to surrender a touchdown catch. He discussed how the defense has adapted to limit tight ends.
