(NEW YORK) — Two Super Bowl MVP’s will square off on Sunday in Baltimore. The Green Bay Packers (2-2) travel to Baltimore to take on the Ravens (3-2).
Ravens head coach John Harbaugh is expecting a big effort from his defense to stop Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
“He’s one of the premier quarterbacks in football. He does it his way, he’s got his own unique style,” Harbaugh said on Wednesday. “Pass rushing’s going to be a big part of that; keeping him in the pocket’s going to be important.”
“He’s an athletic guy, he’s got a good arm,” Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said when asked about Rodgers. “He creates some plays here and there. They’ve obviously been a top offense in the league the last few years and it’s a big credit to him.”
Green Bay head coach Mike McCarthy is also looking forward to the challenge. “It’s a great stadium to play in. They’re an outstanding football team,” he said. “I think it’s going to be a heck of a game.”
Rodgers adds scoring touchdowns will be critical. “Definitely got to improve in that area, especially when you’re playing real good football teams,” he explained. “You’ve got to get seven points, make it easier on your defense. It’s a tough opponent for us this week.”
