Here's who got the best of who in the key matchups of Sunday's game.

Dean Pees vs. Greg Roman

It was a rematch of coordinators from Super Bowl XLVII in 2013, and Baltimore’s Pees came out on top again. This one was a far different game. Roman’s San Francisco 49ers rolled up 468 yards in losing to the Ravens, 34-31, in the title game from four seasons ago. This time, Pees held the Bills to just 160 yards. The Ravens’ two best defensive linemen, Brandon Williams and Timmy Jernigen, were great. And linebackers C.J. Mosley and Albert McClellan looked like they spent all offseason studying the Bills’ power run schemes. McClellan anticipated a pull by Richie Incognito in the third quarter, absorbed and bounced off the block and trapped LeSean McCoy for a 6-yard loss. Pees, 67, has two Super Bowl rings. He earned his first as an aide to Bill Belichick, for whom he worked in New England for six years.
