    They are a -3 in the turnover margin so there's some truth to it. They do have a top 5 run defense. Perhaps that's misleading because no one runs on them preferring to pass? Maybe a deep dive into their previous box scores would provide some insight.

    Denver averaged 5.3 yards per carry and racked up 133 yards rushing on the Chargers.

    I don't really know what to expect in San Diego. While Vincent Jackson is gone, Philip Rivers is still very dangerous (sometimes to his own team, but still often to opposing defenses). And their run defense has certainly improved - thanks in part to one Jarret Johnson.

    What I'm really hoping to see is our offense actually become functional on the road. We were fortunate in Pittsburgh to face Leftwich, who couldn't do much of anything after his initial drive. 13 points is unlikely to get the job done against Rivers. It's time to show some punch away from M&T.

    I think this is a big litmus test for the Ravens. This is not because the Chargers are very good, but because of the background to the game.

    The Ravens can win games on the road against all manner of teams, yes. However, check the history:
    Ravens have failed to win back to back road games since 2008.
    The Ravens lost both times last year coming off victories against the Steelers.
    The Ravens have not won on the road after a victory over the Steelers since 2004. The last time they won a road game after winning at Pittsburgh was in 2001.
    The Ravens have only ever been unbeaten once in November - 2000.

    This game is also sandwiched between another game with the Steelers and flying out west to a team that outmatched us last year. While stats are just stats, it's a good time to overcome it.

    Think it'll say an awful lot to get the W in this scenario.

    Okay. One example. What about the rest of the opponents?

    Probably because of Manning. He can audible out of pass plays, unlike our QB.

    But yes, Peyton's ability to see what the defense intends to do, before the snap, means they are almost always running the best possible play that could be run at that moment. There aren't many that have that ability (the coach on the field ability).

    Okay. So I went ahead and looked up their run defense numbers. The most they gave up was to the Den/cleveland. 133 yards rushing. 2 other teams went over a 100 against them as well (Atlanta, KC twice). So in half their games they yielded less than a 100 yards on the ground. Pretty respectable regardless of the opponents. Although I have to say two of those games involved Denver and New Orleans, two teams that don't need to run the ball to have success.
    I also found it alarming that their top 3 tacklers were all from the secondary. Oh and that Antwan Barnes guy, he's having a heck of season, 7 total tackles and 1 sack in 9 games played LOL
