Default Sacks in 9er's game

Thanksgiving night the Ravens' sacked Smith 8 times. Lewis was out that game and Harrison is out this game. Do the Steelers' even come close to that number? I am thinking anything over 3 is good.

I thought it was 9, but yeah that's a lot of sacks. I doubt that we will. I don't know if Woodley is playing, if not then 3 would be surprising. Lewis is a good mlb but he's not a pass rusher like Harrison. I havent followed the niners but their o line probably had a bad game and the ravens have a good pass rush, bad combination. Unless their o line is flat terrible I doubt anybody will get that many sacks on them again.

Ravens' lead the NFL at 45 sacks. Besides Suggs 4 players have 4.5 or more.

Seems like we used to get more from safety blitzes but not so much this year

Although our blitz defense and sack numbers have lowered, our pass defense has vastly improved from last year. I guess you have to sacrifice a little to achieve success in other areas.

On a side note, post number 500!

We are still getting pressure, teams are throwing quicker on us. We are now starting to actually catch the ball on defense. Sometimes it's better to have pressure that forces poor throws which can lead to interceptions than sacks. However, I am sure we will get some QB hits this Monday. I predict Worilds will have at least 2, and Woodley seems to be returning so I expect a big game from him as well. The Niners OL is struggling right now.

We haven't had a lot of sacks this year and the Ravens do. The defense has been doing pretty well (obviously) and Ill be happy with 3 or 4 int's!
