Baltimore Sun columnist Mike Preston takes you inside the game with a look at how the Ravens match up with the New Orleans Saints.
Saints TE Jimmy Graham vs. Ravens secondary: The Saints like to move Graham around because at 6-foot-7 and 265 pounds, he creates a lot of mismatch problems. He has caught 59 passes for 623 yards and seven touchdowns. It will be interesting to see how the Ravens play Graham. Physically, they have no one who can match up with him and he'll create a lot of problems if he is isolated with Ravens safeties Will Hill, Matt Elam, Darius Stewart or Terrence Brooks. Wherever Graham is on the field, look for the Ravens to bracket him. Edge: Saints
Saints DE Cameron Jordan vs. Ravens OT Eugene Monroe: Jordan has an explosive first step and can be disruptive with penetration. He is athletic and relentless as a pass rusher with five sacks among his 29 tackles. Monroe had a strong season a year ago, but hasn't stood out this year. He has struggled with injuries, and hasn't been physical at the point of attack. He is more finesse than mauler, but also struggles with speed rushers on the outside. Edge Saints
