The Ten Worst Rush Defenses

An awful Indianapolis Colts rush defense against an awful Baltimore Ravens offense.  Both Willis McGahee and Le'Ron McClain look like solid starts.  The biggest worry is the Colts getting two TDs ahead which could force the Ravens to try and throw.  QB Joe Flacco against the Colts pass defense is not necessarily the match-up the Ravens want to try and escape with a road victory.

Two of the four worst RYA teams face-off in Seattle as the Seahawks host the Green Bay Packers.  With Qb Aaron Rodgers nursing a sore throwing shoulder, one can easily imagine the Pack trying to pound the ball.  But will RB Ryan Grant be able to take advantage?  He ran for 83 yards against a better Atlanta Falcons club so I'll say yes as strongly as anyone can say it for Ryan Grant.
