Bengals QB Andy Dalton vs. Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano

Dalton was a second-round steal in the 2011 draft. His 14 touchdown passes are the most by a rookie quarterback in his first nine games since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970, and he has emerged as the team leader, showing excellent poise, confidence and accuracy. Pagano is a first-year defensive coordinator who has to dial up some schemes to rattle and confuse Dalton. The Ravens' pass rush has been off the past three games. Edge: Ravens
