Ravens ready to read lips

The Ravens practiced in the rain today because there is a 40 percent chance of showers in Seattle. Baltimore is also prepping for some nonverbal communication by having crowd noise during practices.

"Seattle’s the loudest stadium I’ve been in because, at times, you can’t even hear the quarterback screaming at the top of his lungs in the huddle," Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron said. "But it’ll be equally, if not louder, in practice. You just try to simulate it as best you can. Doesn’t do much for your hearing … Trust me when I tell you.”

What do you do during the game if the players can't hear quarterback Joe Flacco in the huddle?

“Just read his lips," Cameron said. "That’s what you do. The same thing you guys would do. It’s no different if you were in a critical situation. you just read the person’s lips and play ball. That’s what you do.”

The Ravens' starting offensive line has been flagged seven times for false starts this season.
