Ray Rice was the primary beneficiary of Sunday's run-heavy game plan of Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and the head-ringing blocks of fullback Vonta Leach.

In the heat of nearly every moment on a football field, San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers is said to be a man of many words — some more family friendly than others — whether his Chargers are winning big or getting their expletives handed...

For Thursday’s newspaper, I began a three-part series called “Tweaking the Ravens” and I started by tweaking the offense. A big chunk of the analysis piece (you can find it here) was about the importance of continuity and stability for...

As we get closer and closer to the start of training camp, it appears more and more likely that the Ravens will allow starting quarterback Joe Flacco to play out the final year of his rookie contract during the 2012 season.

My apologies for interruptions in this week's blog schedule. I was actually doing real reporting for a change. (I know, crazy talk.) But I still had time to stay on top of my many fantasy football leagues. I completed another draft last week, and I have...

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...
