Starting LT Jared Gaither will be inactive for Baltimore today, meaning the Ravens will have to shuffle their offensive line.
Regular starting RT Michael Oher will move to LT, and backup LG Marshal Yanda will slide to RT to fill the spot left vacant by Oher moving to LT.
This means that both Vikings DEs Jared Allen and Ray Edwards will be going against players who don’t start at their respective positions today. The last time Allen went up against a backup LT was when Green Bay came to Mall of America Field at the HHH Metrodome and Daryn Colledge gave up 4.5 sacks, a forced fumble and safety to #69.
A repreat effort today from Allen would go a long way towards the Vikings slowing down an efficient and productive Ravens offense that is led by calm, cool and collected sophomore QB Joe Flacco and a talented rushing attack led by Willis McGahee, La’Ron McClain and Ray Rice.
