Ravens' All-Pro quartet
The Ravens had four players selected for the Associated Press' annual All-Pro squad.
Already named to the AFC Pro Bowl squad, fullback Vonta Leach, kick returner Jacoby Jones, offensive guard Marshal Yanda and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata made the AP's list.
Leach is a devastating lead blocker who punished defenders, including uprooting Steelers nose guard Casey Hampton, as the Ravens finished 11th in rushing with Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice gaining 1,143 yards and scoring nine touchdowns.
Leach and Jones were first-team selections, and Ngata and Yanda were second-team choices.
Jones returned two kickoffs and one punt for touchdowns, leading the NFL with a 30.7 kickoff-return average.
Jones' 108-yard kickoff return against the Dallas Cowboys tied the NFL record for longest return.
Super Bowl deep freeze?
With the 2014 Super Bowl to be played in New York after next season, Goodell expressed a desire for more Super Bowls in cold-weather cities.
"My personal view is, the game of football is to be played in the elements," Goodell said.
"There are people who like to see the Super Bowl played in absolutely pristine conditions, where everything is the same and there's no weather elements at all. I just don't think that's football."
Goodell was asked whether Baltimore or Washington would ever be considered as candidates for Super Bowl sites.
"You have to look at the infrastructure, the stadium size, if the community has a significant amount of hotels," Goodell said. "Washington has expressed an interest in the past. We've looked at that, so we'll see what happens."
Ravens reserve rookie cornerback Asa Jackson was active in his first game after a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy.
Jackson was punished by the NFL for unauthorized usage of Adderall. With Jackson active, the Ravens scratched wide receiver David Reed.
The Ravens also deactivated safety Omar Brown, cornerback Chris Johnson, outside linebacker Adrian Hamilton, offensive guard Ramon Harewood, wide receiver Deonte Thompson and defensive tackle Bryan Hall.
