Three questions with Ravens offensive tackle Michael Oher
For the second time in three years, Michael Oher has started all 16 regular-season games at left tackle. The organization's top pick in the 2009 NFL draft, Oher has yet to miss a start in his NFL career, stringing together a remarkable run of avoiding serious injury. The 26-year-old also leads the Ravens offensive line in total snaps played this season (1,058), according to Football Outsiders. But Oher finished the regular season ranked 39th among offensive tackles in pass-blocking efficiency and surrendered 10 sacks, nine hits and 26 hurries, according to Pro Football Focus. The 6-foot-4, 315-pound Oher will meet one of his tougher challenges in Sunday's AFC Wildcard playoff game against Colts outside linebacker Dwight Freeney. The 11-year veteran is Indianapolis' all-time leader in sacks and ranks fifth in the NFL among active players. Oher reviewed his performance in last Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, during which he played both the left and right tackle positions, and his history against Freeney.
