Lee Evans has never played in a postseason game in his seven-year career, but the Ravens will need him to produce to help them extend their playoff run.
In the Ravens' last three playoff losses, they have produced five pass plays of at least 20 yards. But only one came from a wide receiver.
A team rarely beats the Pittsburgh Steelers by running the ball. Success against the Steelers is predicated on speed on the outside.
The longest catch by a Ravens wide receiver against the Steelers in the 2008 AFC championship game and last year's divisional playoff game was 16 yards.
Now, enter Evans, who has averaged nearly 16 yards per catch (15.7) in his NFL career.
"He's fast, he makes plays," coach John Harbaugh said. "He's a big yards per catch guy. That helps a lot."
