Anticipate a steady diet of Jamal Lewis runs with more frequent relief from primary backup Chester Taylor because of the so-called dry heat common to the Valley of the Sun. Plus, offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh will likely have some new progressions for rookie quarterback Kyle Boller to work with in a conservative passing game centered around Pro Bowl tight end Todd Heap

Watch former Baltimore quarterback Jeff Blake use his arm strength and savvy to attempt to escape a focused pass rush. Blake will obviously throw it as often as he can to rookie standout Anquan Boldin. He doesn't have much confidence in his team's running game following Emmitt Smith's injury or his blockers after they got him sacked twice for safeties last week against the Dallas Cowboys. Can you blame him?
Gregg's combination of a rare motor and leverage could overwhelm the 6-foot-6,
384-pound Davis. Davis struggled terribly last week at Texas Stadium.
