Mike Preston's Ravens-Rams matchups to watch

Ravens S Ed Reed vs. Rams QB Sam Bradford

Bradford is the real deal. He runs the Rams' offense and can make any throw and deliver the long ball with touch. For a young player, he runs the no-huddle offense pretty effectively. Because of the Rams' no-huddle approach, Reed will be a key in getting the secondary set. He'll also have plenty of tricks for Bradford and might be able to come away with an interception or two. Edge: Ravens

Ravens DTs Terrence Cody and Haloti Ngata vs. Rams C Jason Brown

This will be like old times for Brown and Ngata as far as butting heads. Brown is tough and powerful, and he'll be ready to go against his old team. Brown started his 78th consecutive game last week against the New York Giants. Ngata is the best defensive tackle in the NFL, and one of the few inside players who can dominate a game. Cody has played well in the past two games, and the two will make it a tough day for Brown. Edge: Ravens

Ravens RT Michael Oher vs. Rams DE Chris Long

Long had a career-best 8.5 sacks in 2010 and recorded his second of the season last week against the Giants. He has a strong motor and is quick off the ball. Oher played well against the Steelers in the opener but struggled last week against the Tennessee Titans. Because of Long's speed, Oher might have problems with false starts again. Edge: Even
