The road to the superbowl is hotting up as Tennessee meet Baltimore and Dallas travel to Carolina in Saturday's wild-card match-ups.
The Ravens have won five straight games against the visiting Titans and will be hoping to continue their hot streak against their opponents.A key
figure in the Ravens drive to the final is Jamal Lewis.The Ravens running back finishing the regular season with 2,066 yards, the second best ever in
the history of the NFL.
Veteren QB Steve McNair will be looking to get Tennessee a play-off win on the road.Due to his ankle injury he struggled in the last few weeks of the
regular season.He will have to be on top of his game and show all his skill to beat a Ravens secondary line that has plenty of big match players.
Bill Parcels will try to continue his season with a win agaisnt the Panthers.After taking the Buffalo Bills to the Super Bowl in recent years he is no
stranger to pressure.Parcels has sorted out the defensive line which has only allowed a average 164 passing yards agaisnt them. QB Quincy Carter needs
to be in good form as he has allowed 21 interceptions against the 17 touchdown passes he has thrown.
Carolina will be looking for the home advantage to hold them in good stead and are relying on QB Jake Delhomme to have a strong game.Delhomme has been
relying on his fourth quarter comebacks,but the way the Dallas defence is playing he will need to be consistant throughout the whole game.
The Real Deal
