Expect tight end Cameron Brate to be a key part in the Bucs' game plan against the Ravens: "Those check-down guys, guys working the middle of the field, some of the quicker, easier throws, getting the ball out of the quarterback's hands — those are gonna be big for us because the longer we sit back and hold the ball gives their good rushers more time to get to the quarterback."
