Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe Has History With Ravens CB Dominique Foxworth

The name Dominique Foxworth should be familiar to Dwayne Bowe and fans of the Kansas City Chiefs.  A former Denver Bronco, Foxworth has faced Bowe three times in two seasons.  Twice while with the Broncos in 2007 and once again while with the Falcons in 2008.

How has Bowe fared against the man that's expected to be responsible for him on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens?  Not too shabby.

In Bowe's rookie year, with Champ Bailey responsible for Tony Gonzalez, Foxworth limited (limited?) him to nine receptions for 105 yards in a Chiefs loss.  In game two, in the confines of the poor man's Arrowhead Stadium Mile High, Bowe caught just two passes for 25 yards in a 41-7 Chiefs loss.

On September 2nd of last season, the Broncos shipped Foxworth off to the Atlanta Falcons for a late round draft pick.  The Chiefs' Bowe again faced Foxworth and the Falcons in week three.  Bowe ended the game with four receptions for 43 yards including a touchdown reception in another Chiefs loss.

All in all, in three games Bowe's totaled 15 receptions for 173 yards against Foxworth.

The size advantage for Bowe has already been discussed, which will hopefully create problems for the Ravens secondary.  Safety Ed Reed is expected to help with coverage on Bowe according to the fine folks at Rotoworld.

FS Ed Reed will likely also shade to Bowe's side often, but Reed is more of a gambler than a shutdown safety. Foxworth has great speed, but the physical, 6'2/221-pound Bowe will likely be difficult for the 5'10/180-pound corner to take down after the catch.

Expect Bowe to see about 15 targets Sunday.

Bowe averaged just under ten targets per game last season.  With Tony Gonzalez gone, who was targeted 155 times last season, the majority of us expect that number to rise.
