PLAY BUTLER ON THE RIGHT- Given that the Patriots aren't likely to suddenly play man, having Butler protect the right side of the field would be wise. While Flacco hasn't been super effective to either sideline, he sure likes to throw it to the right.
DON'T GIVE UP THE BIG PLAY- It's boring and drives most fans crazy, but the Patriots have been pretty good at not allowing opponents to have huge gains. Yes, it means they give up 9 yards on 3rd and 8 way too often and they don't get sexy sacks every other play, but they do keep the other team out of the endzone. Heading into tonight's game the Patriots are tied with the Ravens with allowing 17.3 points per game.
DON'T BE AFRAID TO RUN- The Raven's have a great defense. If the Patriots become one dimesional, that gives an advantage to Baltimore. As long as the Patriots don't become predictable on offense they will be able to drop at least 28 points on the Ravens at home.
