Chargers OLB Jarret Johnson vs Ravens TE's Dennis Pitta and Ed Dickson

Johnson will be fired up to play against his old teammates and he knows all the weaknesses of Pitta and Dickson. Johnson is used mostly against the run and has 26 tackles. If the Ravens want to run outside to their strong side, they have to contain Johnson. Pitta has struggled with head injuries the past two weeks. If he can't play, Dickson has to step up. Dickson is faster and slimmer than Pitta but not much of a blocker. The Ravens could struggle if Dickson has to play full time. Edge: Chargers.
