Baltimore Ravens at New York Giants
Super Bowl Preview - The Big Fellas
January 28, 2001
NFL offenses have found it tough sledding inside on the Baltimore defense. The Ravens have given up only 60.6 yards rushing a game in 2000, and one of the biggest reasons is the play of massive defensive tackles Tony Siragusa (340 pounds) and Sam Adams (330 pounds). They clog the middle so effectively that Ray Lewis and the rest of the Raven linebackers often have clear sailing into the backfield. For New York to have any chance of moving the football, they must get some kind of push on the Big Fellas.
- Against teams that like to run the football, Ray Lewis (52) is able to explode through openings created by Tony Siragusa (98) and Sam Adams (95).
- In this scenario, FB Greg Comella (34) tries to kick out LB Peter Boulware (58) to create a running lane for Tiki Barber (21).
