Here's three key matchups when the Ravens play the Dolphins in Miami:
Dolphins LT Branden Albert vs Ravens OLB Elvis Dumervil: Albert, out of Glen Burnie, has been a strong constant for the Miami Dolphins, which have one of the worst offenses in the NFL. At 6 feet 5 and 320 pounds, he will be a problem for Dumervil, who is seventh on the team in tackles with 36. Dumervil, though, leads the team with six sacks and has played well despite having to fill in at Terrell Suggs' position this season. Edge: Ravens.
Dolphins DT Ndamukong Suh vs Ravens Gs Kelechi Osemele and Marshal Yanda: It all comes down to whether Suh wants to play. When he brings his "A" game, he is unblockable. He can play the run or rush the passer. Osemele practiced this past week and should be back after missing the past two games with a sprained knee. Yanda has turned in another strong season, but has had trouble with Suh in the past. So has just about everyone else when Suh is on. Edge: Even.
Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry vs. Ravens CBs Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith: Landry is one of the Dolphins' few offensive players who can make big plays. Landry has 76 receptions for 816 yards. The Ravens have had problems covering any receiver this season. Webb seems to be better at safety. Smith is often in position, but very seldom turns around to make a play in coverage. The Ravens are allowing 258.6 yards passing per game. Edge: Miami
