Aside from an uncharacteristic 157-yard outburst by the Philadelphia Eagles' Brent Celek in Week 2, the Ravens have succeeded at containing opposing tight ends this season. Only one has caught a touchdown, the Houston Texans' Owen Daniels, and none since Celek have reached 90 yards receiving. The Ravens will face another tough tight end Sunday in the San Diego Chargers' Antonio Gates, who leads the team in touchdown catches with four and ranks second in yards with 355. Ravens inside linebacker Jameel McClain has been thrown at 28 times this season - the most among Ravens linebackers, according to Pro Football Focus - but he has yet to surrender a touchdown catch.

When it comes to shutting down some of the best tight ends, few defenses are better than the Ravens. But there has been one blemish on the Ravens' recent track record - the San Diego Chargers' Antonio Gates. In 2007, Gates made the Ravens' defense look vulnerable, running free over the middle for touchdown catches of 35 and 25 yards. He finished with six catches for 105 yards, a performance that Ravens defenders chalked up to "miscommunication." The Ravens get another shot at Gates on Sunday and can only hope their success against tight ends will continue.

The comparisons are inevitable. In the 2010 NFL draft, the Ravens selected a pair of tight ends in Ed Dickson and Dennis Pitta. The New England Patriots also claimed a pair of tight ends in Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez. That's where the similarities end. Whereas Dickson and Pitta have capably filled the void created when the Ravens cut Todd Heap in the offseason, Gronkowski and Hernandez have sparked an offense setting league records. So on Wednesday, as the Ravens prepared for Sunday's AFC championship game against the Patriots in Foxborough, Mass., Dickson applauded Gronkowski's and Hernandez's accomplishments - and said that he and Pitta have the potential to do more.

Vernon Davis (Maryland) tied the NFL record for touchdown receptions by a tight end with his 13th of the season, leading the visiting San Francisco 49ers to a 28-6 victory over the St. Louis Rams. Davis tied the mark set by the San Diego Chargers' Antonio Gates last season with the longest catch of his career, getting behind the defense on a 73-yard reception from Alex Smith that put the 49ers ahead 14-6 midway through the fourth quarter. BROWNS: Former Ravens running back Jamal Lewis hasn't ruled out a return to the NFL, even though he is still suffering from headaches and blurred vision as a result of a concussion that ended his season.

Sunday's NFL playoff results increased the already great likelihood that the New England Patriots will go 19-0. The conventional wisdom had been that the two teams with the best chances to keep the Patriots from running the table resided in Indianapolis and Dallas. Well, they're both on vacation now. The San Diego Chargers and New York Giants, respectively, helped them pack. On paper, the Patriots' toughest opposition would come from the Green Bay Packers, who play at home against the Giants in the NFC title game Sunday (although I'm not forgetting that New York had that 12-point third-quarter lead over New England in the last game of the regular season)

INDIANAPOLIS -- In the ever-shifting offensive landscape of the NFL, tight ends are back in vogue. Benefiting from the mismatch of speed against linebackers and size against safeties, pass-catching tight ends - such as the Ravens' Todd Heap, Kansas City's Tony Gonzalez, San Diego's Antonio Gates and Pittsburgh's Heath Miller - are increasingly important weapons. All of which bodes well for ex-Maryland standout Vernon Davis, who is giving up his final year of eligibility with the Terrapins to enter the NFL draft April 29-30.

LEXINGTON, Ky. -They issued no apologies, sought no concessions and did not act like intruders. Kent State's Golden Flashes may be mid-major orphans playing out of the Mid-American Conference. They may even be playing over their heads here in the South Regional. But testimonials yesterday by friend and foe alike struck a common chord: Kent State belongs in the round of 16 with the likes of Duke, Indiana and Pittsburgh. Most prominent was a ringing endorsement from Mike Krzyzewski, who coaches Duke's defending national champions.

Redskins Redskins coach Zorn will be fired today, report says The Washington Redskins plan to fire coach Jim Zorn today, an official within the NFL told the Associated Press.

The official spoke to the AP on Sunday on the condition of anonymity because no announcement has been made.
