Whom would the Ravens least wish to see within the playoffs? A have a look at their 4 potential first-round opponents. – Baltimore Solar

Why they wouldn’t: The Colts, led by Pro Bowl linebacker Darius Leonard and defensive tackle DeForest Bucker, play sound run defense. They held the Ravens to 110 yards on 38 carries in Week 9 and have surrendered just 68 rushing yards per game over their last four. So they would be well-equipped to counter the Ravens’ greatest strength. On offense, rookie running back Jonathan Taylor has come a long way since he faced the Ravens. Over his past five games, he’s averaged 97.6 rushing yards and has caught 13 passes out of the backfield. The Colts’ 10-point showing against the Ravens was misleading; they’ve scored at least 24 in every game since and have exceeded 30 in wins over the Titans, Packers and Las Vegas Raiders. They might lack star power, but they don’t beat themselves; their +10 turnover differential ranks third in the league.
