2. The Baltimore Ravens have to see what Geno Stone can do

Geno Stone will be fascinating to watch in the playoffs. In the first seven games of the season, it looked like Stone would be an All-Pro. However, despite seven interceptions, it looks like Stone will not only miss the All-Pro, he did not get the Pro Bowl nod. 

Stone was picking passes off left and right early in the year when he filled in for Marcus Williams as the free safety. Then, when Williams came back, the team moved Stone into the box more. The results were more missed tackles, more coverage busts, and fewer plays on the ball. 

Stone had an interception with Williams on the field against Miami, his one and only. The Ravens have started to find ways to mix and match Williams and Stone playing deep, and they have gotten Stone out of the box more since the 49ers win. However, Stone left week 18 with an injury, although John Harbaugh did say that it was minor. Still, the question of how Stone and Williams play together and whether teams can attack this duo in coverage will remain to be seen until Stone can answer the bell.
