Against the Ravens, Steelers WR Mike Wallace hasn't caught a touchdown this season with two catches for 24 yards in the first meeting in Pittsburgh and five catches for 76 yards in the second game. A major reason why Wallace has been unable to strike deep against Wallace: the coverage of speedy Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb.
Webb's recovery speed came in handy in the first game, a 17-14 Ravens win, as he caught up to Wallace to knock the football down in the end zone after he broke free. "Lardarius can run, for one thing, and Mike can run, so that helps," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "Lardarius is very athletic. I think he's getting more and more healthy with the knee. That's helped him.
"He's playing with really good technique. He's been very disciplined. So, if he can continue to grow and play that way, he should be fine."
