Can the Ravens contain Bears WRs Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery?
Even without Cutler at quarterback, the Bears' passing game still presents problems because of Marshall and Jeffery. McCown has impressed teammates with how he has played in relief of Cutler. That was something Marshall talked about during his conference call with Baltimore media this week. But it helps having Marshall and Jeffery on the outside. Marshall has been one of the best wide receivers in the league for several years. Jeffery is an up-and-comer. He only had 24 catches as a rookie last season, but he has 47 catches for 735 yards and three touchdowns in nine games this year. Like Marshall, he is big and physical, and Marshall and multiple members of the Ravens' secondary raved about his hands this week. Together, Marshall and Jeffery have combined for more yards (1,521) than any other receiving tandem in the NFL. However, bad weather is in the forecast for today, which could create problems for both passing games.
