Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers already had his strategy mapped out for how to attack Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb before he lobbed a deep touchdown pass over his head to wide receiver Jordy Nelson on Sunday. Rodgers sold a play-action fake to running back Eddie Lacy to get the Ravens to shift toward his left. Then, he adeptly rolled out to his right and delivered a 64-yard touchdown to a wide-open Nelson streaking past Webb down the middle. "I had just scrambled on the previous play, and Jordy had just ran a deep route," Rodgers said.

Six games into the season, the Ravens are a .500 team with about 500 unanswered questions on offense. The offensive line has often resembled a row of subway turnstiles. The running backs have shown little burst when they do find running lanes. The play of the team's pass-catchers has been wildly inconsistent. And quarterback Joe Flacco has been erratic so far, alternating impressive throws with confounding ones. Their saving grace has been the revamped defense, which has played very well since Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos made it rain touchdowns in the season opener.

Time's up for Mike Nolan and the San Francisco 49ers. No more private workouts or tape reviews. No more splitting hairs or quarterbacks. What started three months ago as an exercise in rehabilitation for the 49ers reaches critical mass today when Nolan, the team's new coach and decision maker, reveals a draft strategy with the No. 1 pick that could be debated for years to come. Alex Smith, Aaron Rodgers or punt? The decision will set in motion the reclamation job Nolan has begun in San Francisco as well as the 70th NFL draft in New York.

For NFL teams and their fans, the draft is a giddy mix of promise and optimism, drama and angst. But for arguably the biggest stakeholders -- the players waiting to be chosen -- the anticipation and anxiety are especially heightened as a young lifetime's worth of sweat and sacrifice finally has a price tag attached to it. The big winners, such as quarterback Alex Smith, taken No. 1 by the San Francisco 49ers, and running back Ronnie Brown, selected No....

Cowboys@Packers 8:15 p.m. [chs. 11, 4] If Aaron Rodgers (right) can lead Green Bay over Dallas, Packers fans might be ready to believe team management knew what it was doing when it let that other quarterback leave. The question is: Will NBC's John Madden be able to handle a Packers game without Brett Favre?

Pittsburgh will prevail Kevin Van Valkenburg Baltimore Sun Are you ready to live in a world where the Steelers have seven Super Bowl trophies? Where Ben Roethlisberger is considered Tom Brady's equal? Because that's where we'll be Sunday night. I'm not sure I'm ready. But I'd better get ready, because I'm convinced it's going to happen. This Steelers seem to be the perfect blend of style and grit. Their quarterback, whatever personal misgivings I may have about him, is a winner on the field.

Ravens looking good Ken Murray Baltimore Sun In the absence of any truly dominant teams — no, the Saints don't qualify with their defense — the race is wide open. Starting in the AFC, the Colts probably aren't going to flirt with perfection again, and the Patriots still are clearing the rubble from a wicked playoff loss to the Ravens. Because of all their upgrades, I like the Ravens to challenge the Chargers in the AFC title game.

1 Ravens' pass rush can't get to Aaron Rodgers. The Packers have allowed an NFL-worst 44 sacks this season, but there's no guarantee that the Ravens will take advantage of it. They haven't recorded a sack in two games. 2 Green Bay cornerback Charles Woodson changes another game. The 12-year veteran has had his hand in six takeaways (three interceptions and three forced fumbles) in Green Bay's three-game winning streak. 3 Ravens struggle in first half again. Sure, the Ravens ended their six-game stretch without scoring an offensive touchdown in the first half.

Packers over Chargers By Ken Murray Baltimore Sun The easy choice in the AFC is always Peyton Manning and the Colts. Since they blew it last year, I'm staying away. I don't think the Patriots have enough defense. I don't buy the hype on the Jets. I think the Ravens have two big issues to resolve — right tackle and cornerback. So, I'm picking the Chargers to win the AFC and reach the Super Bowl. I'm putting a lot of weight on Philip Rivers. They'll miss left tackle Marcus McNeill, but they can beat the Colts if they get that far. As for the NFC, I don't believe the Saints can win back-to-back with that defense.

Ravens rookie free safety Matt Elam has only played six games in the NFL, but he is already aware of the split-second dilemma that defenders face while converging on pass-catchers in the open field and taking aim at target areas some feel are shrinking by the second. Go high and your bank account could take a hit. Go low and you could cause a serious knee injury, something that many players would prefer much less than a concussion. Elam was put in that position late in the second quarter of Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Craig Martin jogged across the finish line, having dressed to the nines for a seven-mile run. At Saturday's Baltimore Running Festival, he ran the last leg of the relay race wearing a navy blue herringbone suit, tattersall shirt, blue-and-pink bowtie and suede shoes. In the end, his footwear did him in. "I'm going to have some bad blisters down there," said Martin, 41, of Rodgers Forge. "But I might wear this outfit in the half-marathon next year. " On a cool but muggy day, most of the 27,000 entrants stuck to shorts and T-shirts.

Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers' arm strength, accuracy and improvisational skills have vaulted him to a different level as far as the Ravens' defense is concerned. Heading into Sunday's game at M&T Bank Stadium, the Ravens regard Rodgers and Green Bay's stacked group of offensive weapons as just as dangerous if not more so than a Denver Broncos offense headlined by quarterback Peyton Manning. That's quite a statement about Rodgers, considering how Manning dismantled the Ravens' defense with seven touchdown passes during a 49-27 win to open the season Sept.

A roundup of NFL experts' picks for Sunday's game between the Ravens and Green Bay Packers. * The Sporting News' Vinnie Iyer thinks the Ravens will win, 27-24, over the Packers . The Super Bowl champions have been schizophrenic, going up and down within games and looking like two different teams at home vs. on the road. They just got Ray Rice on track, and Joe Flacco steps into a favorable duel with Aaron Rodgers. It helps both Rice and Flacco that Clay Matthews is out. What doesn't help Rodgers, however, is the fact that his offensive line must deal with Terrell Suggs and a strong pass defense behind him. * CBS Sports' Pete Prisco expects the Ravens to lose, 27-23, at home to Green Bay . The Packers seemed to right things last week coming out of the bye. But they will play this one without Clay Matthews, their best pass rusher.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb was having a quiet day as a receiver Sunday, but Cobb found another way to spark the Packers in the third quarter of their 22-9 victory over the Detroit Lions. On the first play of one drive, the Packers sent three wide receivers and two tight ends out onto the field. But instead of spreading all five players across the line of scrimmage as receivers, they caught the Lions off guard by lining up Cobb in the backfield next to quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who was in the shotgun.

This week, I exchanged emails with Zach Kruse, who blogs about the Packers for Cheesehead TV . MV: The Packers were my Super Bowl pick, so you're welcome for the kiss of death. But right now, what are we to make of a Packers team that has two wins and lost to two good teams on the road?

- A season that began with such promise for the Washington Redskins has unraveled in rapid fashion. The team's record dropped to 0-2 here Sunday, and they looked stunningly overmatched in the process, surrendering the game's first 31 points as the Green Bay Packers coasted to a 38-20 victory at Lambeau Field. "We knew in order to win here in this venue, we had to play one of our better games," Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said. "And obviously we didn't do that today. I thought we almost had to play error-free football, play one of our better games, and we probably did just the opposite in the first half.

In eager anticipation of the 2013 NFL season, Baltimore Sun blogger and reporter Matt Vensel will take a daily look at one of the 13 opponents on the Ravens' regular-season schedule. Today is the Green Bay Packers. The Ravens' Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers figures to be one of the most anticipated games on their regular-season schedule, particularly among those played at M&T Bank Stadium. The Packers, led by former MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers, won the Super Bowl three years ago and are perennial contenders in the NFC. The Ravens, led by Super Bowl MVP quarterback Joe Flacco, are the reigning champions and are perennial contenders in the AFC. Fans of offensive football should be looking forward to this one. I know I am. Recapping 2012: Despite being robbed of one win by the replacement refs, the Packers finished 11-5 last season and won the NFC North.
