Brandon Carr to reach out to KC friends

By Todd Archer

IRVING, Texas – If Brandon Carr needs a scouting report on Baltimore, he can call his former teammates in Kansas City.

The Chiefs lost Sunday but held the Ravens to nine points. Joe Flacco threw for 187 yards, was intercepted once and sacked four times. Ray Rice had 102 yards on 17 carries.

After Monday’s practice, Carr said he had yet to reach out to anybody.

“But that phone call will probably go out today,” Carr joked.

The Ravens have become a more varied offense this year with Flacco – the game against the Chiefs aside. Flacco has Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith at wide receiver, with two solid tight ends. But the running game with Rice remains Baltimore’s strength.

“You know they’re going to be physical,” defensive end Marcus Spears said. “They play that way. That’s their style. Big O-line, like they’ve always had. Ray Rice is probably one of the top backs in the league. So it’s a lot to defend.

The Cowboys hope the extra time to prepare because of the bye week will help.

“We know what they like to do, but depending each week teams vary as far as game plans and how they are going to attack you and scheme you,” Carr said. “Still some uncertainty, but for the most part we had a lot of time to break these guys down and get a hang of what they do on offense.”
