first_img Comments   Share   Cardinals fans should be familiar with one of the Ravenstop two receivers, but one they may not know could posejust as much of a challenge. Anquan Boldin — the receiver fans should know — andTorrey Smith are the Ravens’ top two targets this season. Each play a different style that could potentially causeproblems for the Cardinals secondary. Cornerback AJ Jefferson says Smith uses his speed whileBoldin will play a more physical style of game. Thegameplan to prevent the receivers from running free is tojam them at the line. What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Top Stories center_img Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation “For me I just don’t want to give them any space to makemoves on me so I’ll be at the line putting my hands onthem and running with them hopefully,” Jefferson said. In order to prepare for the speedy Smith and physicalBoldin, Jefferson has been practicing against someone thatis both fast and physical: Cardinals wide receiver LarryFitzgerald. “Larry is one of the best wide receivers,” Jefferson said.“He’s a big body receiver and he likes to use his handsand get away with illegal stuff sometimes so that alwaysprepares you for the game.” While Boldin and Smith are the focus down the field, theymight not even be the Ravens biggest threat. Running backRay Rice has 337 yards receiving this season, which ismore than Smith and only 57 short of Boldin’s 390. The defense seems to looking forward to facing formerteammate Boldin for the first time. “It’ll be good to see him, talk to him a little bit, he’sa trash talker and competitor,” defensive end CalaisCampbell said. “He’s going to come out with his A gamejust because he’s playing his old team. He’s a guy I loveplaying with but it’ll be fun to play against him.” Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right awaylast_img
