Five players to watch

1 - Dion DawkinsDawkins will get the start at left tackle in place of Cordy Glenn and will face a formidable task in veteran pass rusher Terrell Suggs. Buffalo's contingency plan in the event that Glenn isn't ready for the start of the season will be on full display and likely for more than a half. Everyone should get a good look at what life would be like if Glenn's foot deals the veteran tackle a setback.

2 - Ramon HumberThe linebacker has quietly put together a solid summer at weak side linebacker. A solid performance against the Ravens will solidify his role as a full-time starter on defense for the first time in his NFL career.

3 - John MillerHe won't be starting at right guard. His chief competitor Vladimir Ducasse will get the nod against his former club tonight. Miller has had a consistent preseason, but now he'll have to rotate in and perform which isn't always an easy task. Outperforming Ducasse against the Ravens could be the final step to retaining his starting job.

4 - Wes SaxtonThe tight end put in perhaps his best week of practice and was sprinkled in for second team reps toward the end of the week. He's pushing Logan Thomas now for the third tight end role. A strong all-around game could help him close the gap more.

5 - Shareece WrightWright is embroiled in a three-man competition for the starting RCB spot, but with Kevon Seymour nicked up (shoulder) and E.J. Gaines still getting settled, a steady and dependable performance could be enough to earn the starting role heading into Week 1.
