NEW YORK -- A key ingredient to the Orioles' formula for winning this season has been hitting home runs. They have relied on it more than any club in the major leagues. But in their 9-5 victory over the New York Yankees on Wednesday afternoon, the Orioles mounted their best offensive outing in nearly two weeks without a homer - all while ending New York's postseason hopes in front of an announced 46,056 at Yankee Stadium. The nine runs were the Orioles' highest offensive output since a 10-6 win over the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park on Sept.

The entire 53-man roster was present at Ravens practice Wednesday afternoon, including Pro Bowl free safety Ed Reed, who sustained a sprained left ankle in Sunday's 20-13 win over the Houston Texans in the AFC divisional round. Defensive tackle Arthur Jones (knee) and inside linebackers Brendon Ayanbadejo (quad) and Jameel McClain (knee) said before practice that they have not experienced setbacks since Sunday's game. Assuming they participate in full capacity in practice all week, each is on track for Sunday's AFC championship game against the New England Patriots.

New England: The Patriots haven't lost since Nov. 6, averaging 37.3 points during a nine-game win streak. 2. New York: Eli Manning has become an elite, top-six quarterback.
