Key for Ravens, Cowboys: Protect the QB

There will be many comparisons made between the Ravens and Cowboys before Saturday night's game, but the key will be pass protection for both teams.

Dallas outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware has 19 sacks while nose guard Jay Ratliff and strongside linebacker Greg Ellis each have seven. Ratliff has 28 quarterback pressures.

It will be interesting to see how the Ravens handle the pressure and how it affects their passing game by keeping in a tight end or running back to help out with the pass blocking.

Also, the Ravens have to get pressure on Dallas quarterback Tony Romo. Romo has excellent receivers on the outside in Terrell Owens, Roy Williams and tight end Jason Witten.
