Three things that can go wrong for Ravens vs. Buccaneers

1. LeGarrette Blount runs over Ravens. The Ravens' up-and-down run defense needs to pack a punch against the physical, 247-pound running back. Ravens players compare Blount to Cleveland's Peyton Hillis, who ran for 144 yards against the Ravens earlier this year.

2. Secondary struggles to keep Mike Williams out of the end zone. The Buccaneers rookie wide receiver has scored touchdowns in three out of his past four games. Ravens cornerback Josh Wilson has given up a touchdown in his first two starts of the season.

3. Another fourth-quarter meltdown. The Ravens finished off the Carolina Panthers in the fourth quarter, but they've hardly been the best closers in the NFL. Tampa Bay has outplayed teams in one quarter this season — the fourth — outscoring opponents 63-29.
