Don't be surprised if Pro Bowl NT Jay Ratliff records his second consecutive multi-sack performance.


Ratliff, a relentless pass rusher with remarkable quickness for an interior lineman, had two sacks in Sunday's win over the Philadelphia Eagles. He should feast against the Green Bay Packers, who have allowed a league-high 37 sacks and are especially vulnerable at guard.


Green Bay left guard Daryn Colledge has allowed 7.25 sacks this season, according to Stats, Inc. That's the second most in the NFL. Allen Barbre, who splits time between tackle and right guard, ranked third with 7.0 sacks allowed.


Watch for Wade Phillips to try to create one-on-one matchups against the guards for Ratliff out of the nickel package. Ratliff wins those matchups against most guards. The Packers' pair ought to be easy pickings.
