Pass Rush (Key Players: Jonathan Babineaux, Kroy Biermann, Osi Umenyiora, Malliciah Goodman, Corey Peters, Paul Soliai, Tyson Jackson, Jonathan Massaquoi)

Jonathan Babineaux is an effective pass rusher at defensive tackle, Osi Umenyiora can still be dangerous and Jonathan Massaquoi has potential. Other than that, the cupboard is pretty bare for Atlanta in the pass rush.

Massaquoi leads the team in sacks with two, while Babineaux leads the team in pressures with 12.

The Ravens have already done a great job blocking Geno Atkins and Gerald McCoy this year, so Babineaux should be little threat. If the Falcons consistently throw Umenyiora or Massaquoi against rookie James Hurst, though, the Ravens could be in trouble.
