When Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith breaks the huddle Saturday against the New England Patriots, he anticipates having cornerback Brandon Browner frequently matching up against him.
Browner is one of the biggest and most physical corners in the NFL at 6-feet-4, 221 pounds. His style is based on roughing up wide receivers.
And Torrey Smith expects to see plenty of Browner during an AFC divisional round playoff game at Gillette Stadium instead of Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis. Revis is expected to line up against Steve L Smith most of the time.
Revis has been significantly better in coverage than Browner this season, so this is good news for those owners hoping to use him this week. He has been the #13 WR since Week 6, and has scored 11 touchdowns in his last 12 games.

Divisional Round – Steve Smith Sr. vs. New England
Steve Smith Sr. had a nice game in last week’s victory over the rival Steelers, bringing veteran route running and toughness to the Baltimore passing game, and ending up with five catches and 101 yards. Smith is coming off an inconsistent but productive 1,000+ yard season with the Ravens, and he’ll be eager to show up against the Patriots.
He will likely see a lot of Darrelle Revis however, hurting his chances to blow up. Smith has been a little bit feast or famine this year anyway, and I would expect that to continue in this matchup, We have him as a borderline top ten WR this week, putting him in low-end WR2 territory in most fantasy playoff formats.
