3. How will the Ravens match up against a big receiving corps?

Chargers general manager A.J. Smith loves creating instant mismatches by acquiring big wide receivers. Malcom Floyd is 6-foot-5, 225 pounds. Danario Alexander is 6-5, 217. Robert Meachem is 6-2, 215. And Seyi Ajirotutu is 6-3, 215. Plus, tight end Antonio Gates is athletic and large at 6-4, 255 pounds. The Ravens will need to be physical and time their leaps well when contesting jump balls in order to slow down an explosive offense. "Every one of their guys is a threat," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "I can start listing them, but we would probably run out of time. They have a lot of great players, not to mention their tight end, who is pretty good, too. Every one of their guys is a threat downfield. I think Philip [Rivers] has a lot of confidence in them, where he'll throw to spots and let those guys try to go make plays."
