Haloti Ngata vs Chris Watt

This looks to be a very good matchup that the Ravens will definitely seek to exploit. Chris Watt is the third center the Chargers will have to start this year because of injuries. This will be Watt’s second start of the season. Ngata must be licking his chops to be going up against a rookie making the second start of his career.

Ngata didn’t have his best game against the Saints. However he was crucial in one of the most important plays of the game last week. His penetration was the sole reason Mark Ingram was stopped on the goal line when the Saints went for it on fourth down in their first possession of the game.

Ngata has been spectacular this season. He is having one of his best seasons as a Raven, which is saying something, relative to how successful he has been with Baltimore over his career. According to PFF he is the 7th-best player at his position with a 17.8 rating.
