Some consider Sunday's 35-7 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers a statement game for Joe Flacco. But it was more like a rebuttal by the Ravens quarterback.
Flacco's sharp and scintillating performance is underscored because it came after months of...

The Philadelphia Eagles haven’t been the team we expected (I’m no longer using the ‘D’ word when talking about the Eagles, and you’re welcome). They are 3-5 at the midway point of the season, and their margin for error to...

1. When the Ravens lose games like this, John Harbaugh often refers to the team's performance as a "lack of execution." With all due respect, that's coach-speak, and it doesn't really mean a whole lot. It's an explanation that's purposefully vague. When a...

Grumpy Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Monday had to answer a few questions about the use of Ray Rice in Sunday’s 22-17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Based on the line of questioning from reporters, I’m guessing at least one of those guys has...

Wind out of Colts' sails

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is a polarizing figure in Baltimore -- mainly because he is a quarterback who plays football in Baltimore -- but CBS broadcaster and former Super Bowl MVP Phil Simms believes most NFL quarterbacks would be quite pleased...

Expect the expected
Though it would certainly add some spice if Tim Tebow could pull off another last-minute miracle against the Patriots, it doesn't look like there will be a lot of surprises this weekend. The Patriots...

Understandably, the Ravens weren’t all that interested in discussing Peyton Manning on Wednesday, as much as we would have liked them to. With their quarterback out all season with a neck injury, the 0-12 Indianapolis Colts have gone from AFC...
