The Baltimore Ravens defense will go from facing a experienced veteran quarterback in week two to a second year up and comer in week three. Sam Bradford and the Rams square off against one of the most intimidating defenses in the league in St. Louis and Sunday and this week the young QB got some love from future Hall of Famer Ray Lewis.
“I like the things that he does as a young kid,” Lewis told Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times. “He’s very athletic. He’s very accurate with the ball.”
Baltimore’s defense gave up 358 yards passing to Matt Hasselbeck and the Titans in week two. Hasselbeck spread the ball to nine different receivers in his 30 completions. This week Bradford, who threw for over 300 yards against the Giants in week two, will look to repeat those Hasselbeck’s results.
Bradford’s Rams are 0-2 this season after failing to the Eagles and Giants. He’s thrown for 519 yards and hasn’t thrown an interception, but has been sacked six times. The key for the Ravens to shutting down the young quarterback will be putting pressure on St. Louis’ offensive line early and often.
