RUSH DE­FENSE

Baltimore Sun Sunday - - RAVENS -

The Ravens have al­lowed five of their past six op­po­nents to rush for at least 100 yards and al­low 4.5 yards per carry, 11th worst in the league. Jets run­ning back Le’Veon Bell, who has strug­gled most of the sea­son, gained 87 yards on 21 car­ries against the Ravens in Week 15. Chubb will present a far more dan­ger­ous test. The Ravens have strug­gled on the edges, where Chubb’s speed could hurt them.

The Browns rank 27th in rush de­fense and al­low 4.9 yards per carry. They sur­ren­dered 226 rush­ing yards to the Car­di­nals on Sun­day and 179 to the Ben­gals, so they’re not trend­ing in the right di­rec­tion as they pre­pare to face one of the most pro­duc­tive ground at­tacks in NFL history. LB Joe Schobert leads the Browns with 116 tack­les but grades as a medi­ocre run de­fender, ac­cord­ing to Pro Foot­ball Fo­cus.
