The Ravens plan to keep a close eye on Larry Fitzgerald (above), easily the Cardinals' best offensive player and one of the league's best wide receivers. Fitzgerald is Arizona's all-time leader in receiving yards, receiving touchdowns and 100-yard games. He leads the Cardinals in receptions (31) and receiving yards (505) to go along with two touchdowns. Ravens cornerback Cary Williams will probably draw the assignment of guarding him, with help from safety Ed Reed. The Cardinals' No. 2 receiver, Early Doucet, has also been productive, with 26 catches and two touchdowns. Former Ravens tight end Todd Heap has caught 13 balls for 150 yards for the Cardinals but has been slowed by a hamstring injury. Quarterback Kevin Kolb, whom the Cardinals acquired from the Philadelphia Eagles before the season, has struggled to get into a rhythm and find time to spot his receivers, throwing seven interceptions and getting sacked 18 times. He'll likely be under intense pressure again as the Ravens have 19 sacks this season — tied for the fourth most in the NFL — after getting only 27 all last season.
