3. How will the Ravens handle J.J. Watt?

Blocking J.J. Watt is a difficult feat. The Texans' Pro Bowl defensive end had 20.5 sacks last season and has two this season, plus three pass deflections and six quarterback hits. The Ravens, especially Pro Bowl right guard Marshal Yanda and right tackle Michael Oher, likely will double-team Watt at times. It's imperative that they are as physical as possible with Watt to keep him off quarterback Joe Flacco and prevent him from disrupting passing lanes. If the Ravens can provide Flacco enough time, he'll be able to look downfield to deep threats Torrey Smith (Maryland) and rookie Marlon Brown. The Texans have a sound secondary led by cornerback Johnathan Joseph, who intercepted and returned a pass Watt had deflected for a touchdown last October during a 43-13 rout of the Ravens.
