Surprising Bucs take on contending Ravens

Ed Reed has four picks in four games.

(Paul Spinelli / Associated Press)

The storyline
The Ravens were supposed to be 7-3 behind their young QB. The Bucs were supposed to be more like 3-7 (at best). A win here would cement the Bucs as a legit playoff force.

Why you should watch
Ed Reed vs. Josh Freeman. Ronde Barber vs. Joe Flacco. Flacco struggles against Cover 2, and he is meeting the quintessential Cover 2 ballclub.

Did you know?
Freeman has won six of his past seven road starts. ... Barber is the only player in NFL history with 25-plus sacks and 40-plus interceptions in his career. ... Ravens coach John Harbaugh is 4-0 at home against NFC opponents. ... Baltimore's Terrell Suggs has a sack in three consecutive games.
