BALTIMORE: The champs have steadily moved away from the running game as they've gone more no-huddle the past two seasons, but they're still middle-of-the-pack when it comes to run/pass ratio. They utilize a lot of zone-blocking plays, using some more stretch looks when Ray Rice is in the game and some inside zone plays for back-up Bernard Pierce, who should eat into Rice's workload a little more this season. Rice has typically taken 75 percent of the reps in past years, but that should be closer to 65 percent as Pierce has earned the coaching staff's trust. The Ravens finally handed the keys of the offense over to Joe Flacco last year, and despite some bumps in the road, it worked out. Expect a system heavy on no-huddle again this year. This is an Air Coryell offense that attacks downfield, and has the weapons to do it in Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones. Veteran Anquan Boldin is gone, with his production underneath likely going to tight ends Dennis Pitta and Ed Dickson, and No. 3 receiver Tandon Doss. Ray Rice continues to be frequently used as a security blanket and screen option to create mismatches. The Ravens still skew run-heavy near the goal line, where Rice takes a big workload. LBs Ray Lewis and Dannell Ellerbe, and DBs Ed Reed, Bernard Pollard and Cary Williams are all gone from the 17th-ranked defense (351 YPG allowed), but DT Haloti Ngata, LB Terrell Suggs and a healthy CB Lardarius Webb are still Pro Bowl defenders. Replacing Lewis and Ellerbe will be rookie ILB Arthur Brown and ILB Jameel McClain who is coming back from a spine injury. Newcomers DE/LB Elvis Dumervil, DL Chris Canty and DB Michael Huff will all help the Ravens combat the AFC's toughest schedule.
MIAMI: More than last season, this year's Miami offense figures to more closely resemble the one head coach Joe Philbin was a part of in Green Bay. Expect a lot more running out of spread looks, as the Dolphins have the personnel to line up three- and four-wide and let speedy slasher Lamar Miller stick his foot in the ground and get upfield. Miller is set to get a true No. 1 workload behind a zone-blocking line. Daniel Thomas is the No. 2 but spends a lot of time in the doghouse. The Dolphins are largely a West Coast offense, but they'll be able to stretch the field more this season. Both Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline are capable of big plays downfield, and Wallace will be used often as a catch-and-run threat as well. TE Dustin Keller will play a lot of reps and should be their primary target in the middle of the field. Brandon Gibson figures to return to strictly slot duties, as his skill set is similar to that of the departed Davone Bess. The Dolphins use their backs as receivers often, and both Miller and Thomas are capable receivers. The Dolphins figure to remain relatively run-heavy in the red zone, especially after losing top red zone target Anthony Fasano. The Dolphins finished seventh in scoring defense despite not forcing a turnover in seven of their final nine games. They moved up to draft DE Dion Jordan to line up opposite star DE Cameron Wake (15 sacks), and are banking on both CBs Brent Grimes (Achilles) and Richard Marshall (back) to be injury-free. Miami released ILBs Karlos Dansby and Kevin Burnett, and spent big on MLB Dannell Ellerbe (92 tackles, 69 solos with Ravens), giving him to a 5-year, $35M deal, and then grabbed SLB Philip Wheeler (109 tackles, 78 solos with Raiders) and inked him to $26M over five years.

*Ravens-Dolphins Preview* =========================


Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill and Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco are both likely eager to get back on the field after Week 4 losses.

They probably just want it to hurt a little less when they square off Sunday in Miami.

Tannehill has been sacked a league-high 18 times, including four in Monday night's 38-17 loss to New Orleans, and the Ravens' 23-20 defeat to Buffalo last Sunday prompted general manager Ozzie Newsome to trade for offensive line help.

The problem has been there all year for the Dolphins (3-1), but it has received more attention in the week following the loss to the Saints than it did following their three wins.

"It's a big concern," coach Joe Philbin said. "Eighteen sacks is 4 1/2 a game. That's too many."

Flacco has been sacked 12 times, tied for the seventh-most, and he was dropped four times against the Bills while also throwing a career-high five interceptions. On top of that, the Ravens (2-2) are 28th in rushing with 64.0 yards per game and tied for last in the league with 2.6 yards per carry.

"I think the whole O-line is disappointing right now," coach John Harbaugh said. "There's no one more disappointed than they are right now. We've got to run block better, we've got to pass block better."

It led Newsome to acquire left tackle Eugene Monroe from Jacksonville on Tuesday for a pair of 2014 draft picks.

The Ravens abandoned the running game against the Bills, attempting a franchise-low nine rushes.

"I just felt like we weren't running the ball well enough to win the game running the ball," Harbaugh said. "Looking back on it, I feel the same way. After watching the tape, I feel we did exactly the right thing to try to win that game."

Running back Ray Rice has 89 yards on 30 attempts in three games, and Bernard Pierce leads the team with 151 yards on 56 rushes.

Miami ranks 10th in rushing defense, holding opponents to 98.5 yards per game. It limited the Saints to 68 yards on the ground, but Drew Brees more than made up for it with 413 yards passing and four touchdowns.

The Ravens suffered through a similarly humbling loss in Week 1 to the Broncos, but they've responded by allowing 38 points in three games since Peyton Manning's seven-touchdown night.

Flacco acknowledged the 23 points they gave up to the Bills weren't all on the defense.

"A lot of that falls on me today and just throwing the ball to the wrong team," Flacco said. "If we don't do that, then this game probably looks a little different."

While turnovers were an issue for both teams in Week 4, neither has been particularly impressive taking the ball away. The Ravens have six and a minus-2 differential and the Dolphins have seven and a minus-1.

"That's something we have to get corrected," Philbin said after his team turned the ball over four times against the Saints. "I reminded the players the last time the Dolphins won the division (in 2008), they had a plus-17 turnover margin for the season. That's something we need to start heading toward."

The Dolphins would also like to see an improvement in the chemistry between Tannehill and wide receiver Mike Wallace, who is fourth on the team in receptions (15) and yards (176).

Torrey Smith, Flacco's No. 1 target, is third in the league in receiving yards with 435 on 21 catches. His 20.7 yards-per-catch average is second in the NFL.

Who Flacco's other receiving options will be Sunday is still up in the air. Jacoby Jones has missed the last three games with a sprained right MCL while Marlon Brown injured his thigh last week.

Baltimore has lost four straight regular-season road games despite winning playoff games in Denver and New England last year on its way to the Super Bowl.

Miami has won three in a row at home and is seeking its first 4-1 start since 2003.
