How will the Raven’s pass rushers fare against the Cowboy’s offensive line?

Perhaps the biggest strength of this Cowboys team is their offensive line.  It has quietly become one of the top units in the NFL, and left tackle Tyron Smith has quietly become an elite pass protector along with it.  The 23 year old just signed a $97.6 million dollar extension this offseason, and for good reason.  This unit promises to give the Ravens defensive line a big challenge Saturday night.

By all accounts Terrell Suggs struggled against the 49ers’ line in joint practices, though he has dominated against the Ravens line.  Tony Romo has nowhere near the mobility that Colin Kaepernick does, but he is still good at rolling out of the pocket and feeling pressure.  He may be a little rusty after taking time off to heal, but this will be a battle worth watching regardless.
