Inside the Ravens' nearly empty locker room, cornerback Antonio Langham sat down, rubbed his chin, stared dejectedly at the floor and tried to come up with answers to explain his slump. At that moment, he seemed like a man alone on an island.Then again, Langham is used to that feeling. As a third-year NFL player, Langham makes his living in the corner's glaring, uncompromising spotlight. It's a stage on which your greatest moments and worst mistakes are framed for easy viewing."Nobody sees the right guard screw up, but everybody can see the cornerback when he does," Ravens defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis said.

Ravens WR Justin Armour vs. Browns secondary On any given play, Ravens wide receiver Justin Armour may have to win a battle against one of three players today. It could be cornerback Ryan McNeil or cornerback Daylon McCutcheon or safety Marquez Pope. No matter which Cleveland Brown is lined up across from him, Armour has a clear-cut objective: use his size advantage as a slot receiver to exploit the middle of the field and create a big play. "What is ideal for me in this offense is I can take advantage of what's being given to me," said Armour, who leads the Ravens with 119 yards receiving on six receptions.

Green Bay receiver Antonio Freeman suffered a hairline jaw fracture last month that briefly had him drinking his dinners through a straw.Today, he could be feasting on the 49ers.Freeman picked San Francisco apart Nov. 1, blowing past right cornerback Marquez Pope to score on an 80-yard reception on the first play, then torching Pope again with a 62-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter. Freeman, a Baltimore native who played at Poly, caught seven passes for a career-high 193 yards in the Packers' 36-22 victory.

Time: 8: 20, chs. 2, 7.Line: 49ers by 10.Vs. spread: Lions 5-8; 49ers 4-9.Outlook: League scouts say that one of the best performances put on by a quarterback in the second half of the season has been by the Lions' Charlie Batch. In a downtrodden year for Detroit, he is a bright spot for the future. But right now, Detroit is staring at a loss. San Francisco, a playoff berth already in its pocket, believes it can still catch the Falcons for the division title, as remote as that seems. That belief keeps the 49ers hungry, and the Lions are the next meal.

He was the ninth player chosen in the 1994 draft, the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, an All-Pro in the making.What happened to Antonio Langham?The Ravens couldn't stop asking that question the first half of last season. And the third-year cornerback couldn't stop asking it, either."I went home every night, and I'd sit there a lot of times in the dark, trying to figure out what was going on, why I was playing so bad," Langham said."Was it terrible technique? Was it no confidence? Was it that I didn't know the schemes?"

Running backsEarnest Byner turned in another good effort, and the Bengals still haven't tackled Bam Morris yet. It's a shame the Ravens haven't worked Morris into the offense more and didn't use him in the second half yesterday. -- A-QuarterbackVinny Testaverde started pressing his luck early in the game, forcing passes and making bad decisions that he got away with. The Bengals confused him several times with coverages in the second half, and Testaverde started losing some of his gambles.

As several NFL teams continued to court cornerback Antonio Langham and special teams player Bennie Thompson -- two of the Ravens' unrestricted free agents -- the club yesterday was preparing to release veteran left guard Leo Goeas.An announcement could come within the next few days, according to Goeas' agent, Mark Bartelstein.The 6-foot-4, 300-pound Goeas was signed to a three-year, $2 million contract last March. He started seven of 11 games for the Ravens (six at left guard, one at center)

Before Sunday's 31-24 victory over Seattle, kicker Matt Stover had not missed two field-goal attempts in the same game for the entire season.Out of three attempts, Stover missed from 45 and 42 yards, and had his 42-yard try not sailed wide right with 1:05 left, the Ravens would have sealed their first victory in six weeks without having to sweat out one last Seahawks possession.Although the wind was whipping through Memorial Stadium all day, and low snaps disrupted his timing slightly on each miss, Stover cut past the excuses and went directly to the bottom line.

Although defensive tackle Tony Siragusa and end Michael McCrary practiced yesterday, the defense will probably be taking on the same youthful look in tomorrow's season finale that it showed in last week's 21-19 victory over Tennessee.Look for third-year end Keith Washington to start in place of left end Rob Burnett, whose ankle injury kept him off the practice field all week and probably will restrict him to the sideline in Cincinnati.Look for Larry Webster to get most of the playing time in Siragusa's spot.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Quarterback Vinny Testaverde has suffered injuries to his thigh, ribs and wrist this year, and except for the night he gave way to backup Eric Zeier during a 37-0 defeat in Pittsburgh last month, Testaverde usually has returned to action.Not yesterday. With 1: 54 left in the first half of a close game, Jacksonville safety Travis Davis sacked Testaverde for an 8-yard loss, sending him to the sideline with a posterior cruciate ligament strain of his left knee.Testaverde told Zeier that he probably could not continue, and he watched Zeier stage a two-touchdown rally in the fourth quarter of the Ravens' 29-27 loss.
