Nickel package

Thumbs up:Ravens running back Terry Allen. Criticized for his slow start this season -- he entered play yesterday with a three-game total of 163 yards -- Allen ran with authority to gain 108 yards on 22 carries. He is the first Raven to rush for 100 yards in a regular-season game since Dec. 17, 2000.

Thumbs down:Ravens special teams. The group gave Tennessee hope late in the third quarter, when the Titans blocked a punt for a touchdown and then recovered the ensuing onside kick.

Stat of game: 0--The number of touchdowns allowed by the Ravens' defense in two games at PSINet Stadium. After four games, the Ravens are on pace to break their own record for fewest points allowed in a 16-game season.

Quotable: "It was supposed to be two heavyweights. Well, one showed up." -- Ravens tight end Shannon Sharpe on the 19-point win over the Titans.

Trainer's room:Wide receiver Patrick Johnson (broken left clavicle) may miss eight weeks. Defensive end Rob Burnett (strained calf) is day-to-day.
