One of the match-ups we’re looking forward to seeing when the Cowboys take on the Ravens in Baltimore on Sunday is that of cornerback Brandon Carr and wide receiver Anquan Boldin. Boldin comes into the game with 331 receiving yards and a touchdown, but it’s his ultra-physical style that caught Carr’s attention when watching film this week.
“I mean that guy, he’s pretty strong,” Carr said, per ESPN Dallas. “You see it on film just his demeanor. He’s a nasty receiver, doesn’t mind mixing it up with the DB, beginning of the route, top of the route, once he gets the ball, he’s a physical run-after-the-catch receiver.
“Whoever is on him will just have buckle down and be prepared to fight a real dogfight with a real dog, D-A-W-G. I respect the guy but it’s going to be a battle. That’s what we want to see, a good competition. So just studying him on film you have to buckle down for the whole 60 minutes. You can never go to sleep on a guy like him.”
Carr comes into the Ravens’ game with six tackles on the year, all solo, and two passes defensed, but he’s still looking for his first interception as a member of the Cowboys.
