The Ravens are giving up a lot of weight inside, and Fairley and Suh are disruptive. The Lions have caused more than 60 plays this season to go for negative yards. Look for the Ravens to work a lot of combination blocks as well as run some counters and inside traps to take advantage of Detroit's penetration.
