5. Could Anquan Boldin become the go-to guy?

Veteran wide receiver Anquan Boldin had a relatively quiet day in San Diego with just two receptions, making most of his noise on a crushing block of Chargers free safety Eric Weddle that helped spring Ray Rice for the fourth-and-29 conversion. Boldin has a good track record against the Steelers, including 31 career receptions for 427 yards in five games against them since joining the Ravens for an average of 85.4 receiving yards. Overall in six games against Pittsburgh, Boldin has 39 catches for 545 yards and three touchdowns with 26 first downs and three plays of 25 yards or longer. With the Steelers using their top cornerback, Ike Taylor, to shadow speedster Torrey Smith, there could be opportunities for Boldin on intermediate routes to get open and run after the catch.U.S. Presswire
