They just let Flacco air it out all day so having Butler out there only costs you something in the run game. Pass rush is relatively similar right now but I think Butler could improve.
Knowing our luck they'll run Rice 30 times on Sunday. Teams always stop doing what they've been doing when they play us. It's like they wake up finally or something when the Cowboys come to town. 'Oh wait, why are ignoring Rice, let's start running him. Who are we playing again? The Cowboys, oh perfect."
