This will be a tough match for the Ravens wide receivers (not named Steve Smith, Sr.). The San Diego Chargers give up the 6th fewest points to wide receivers (again…. those not named Steve Smith, Sr.) which should mean that yet again, there will be a heavy dose of Flacco dependency on Steve Smith on critical downs, red zone, and end zone targeting as well.

There’s a reason why Steve Smith has more yards and touchdowns than the rest of the Ravens WR’s combined and is well on his way to cracking the top 10 most receiving yards of all-time list.

Reports as of today speak to Smith tweaking his knee in practice and was limited on Friday. However, we’re talking about a guy who only missed one game with fractured bones in his body and was ready to play. As he’d say himself, “ice up, son!”
