This is the kind of thing that all too often makes it so aggravating to watch the Baltimore Ravens when CBS is doing the telecast. It was late in the third quarter Sunday and a ferocious pass rush by the Ravens resulted in a sack of Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden. As the linemen were unpiling with 29 seconds left in the quarter, a graphic flashed on the bottom of the screen that read, “Ravens: 4 sacks for 28 yards.” Two seconds later, play-by-play announcer Marv Albert told viewers, “A total of three sacks now for the Ravens.” Come on, Marv.

Each Wednesday, blogger Matt Vensel will highlight five statistics that really mean something for the Ravens. 22 -- points by which the defending Super Bowl champions lost in their season opener against the Broncos. You probably saw some of the dubious statistics from last Thursday's 49-27 season-opening blowout in Denver. Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning tied a NFL record with seven passing touchdowns in a single game. Three different Broncos players -- Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker and Julian Thomas -- each had multiple touchdown catches.

I am a rabbi and attorney who grew up in Baltimore. In past years I have been unsuccessful in getting the NFL to look at the religious holiday schedules before scheduling games that conflict with these observances. Rather than set up a calendar committee to avoid cultural conflict and disrespect, the NFL chooses to either ignore the issue or view to view it with "benign neglect. " Neither is acceptable. It happens that, aside from being observant, I am also an enthusiastic sports fan. There is simply no excuse for intentionally scheduling sports events on days that conflict with major religious holidays.

It can be argued the Broncos' three best defensive players the past two seasons were Von Miller, Champ Bailey and Elvis Dumervil. There were three Broncos players named as Pro Bowl starters in 2011: Miller, Bailey and Dumervil. In 2012, there were three Broncos defensive players, and only three, who were named to the Pro Bowl team: Miller, Bailey and Dumervil. But when the Broncos open the 2013 season Thursday night at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Miller, Bailey and Dumervil will not be playing against $20 million quarterback Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens.

The NFL leaned heavily on the Baltimore Ravens when crafting its newest commercial that promotes its new women's apparel line. The 30-second spot, which premieres tomorrow during the Ravens game against the Denver Broncos on NBC, features coach John Harbaugh and player Ray Rice's jersey. Harbaugh's speech to the Ravens in 2009 serves as the commercial's dramatic voice-over. Rice's jersey is also modeled. "When we listened to those words we thought it was a speech that could transcend to our fans," said Jaime Weston, the NFL's vice president of advertising and creative.

I know we are not supposed to be looking back at last season's Super Bowl. We are supposed to focus on the hard road back that starts this week in Denver. But go ahead on this last holiday of the summer and enjoy one last, great, TV wallow in Super Bowl glory at 9 tonight when the NFL Network presents "America's Game: 2012 Baltimore Ravens. " It's the NFL Films documentary on the champion's Super Bowl season. And like last year's Ravens, it's a winner. Beyond the stunning photography and deft editing we've come to take for granted from NFL Films, what I like best about this documentary on the journey to Super Bowl is that it does chain itself to the convention of strict chronology that such documentaries on a team's season often do. You know, Game 1, Game 2, Game 3 .... Instead of opening in pre-season camp or the kickoff of last year's first regular season contest, "America's Game" opens in the playoff game against Denver.

Winning the Super Bowl didn't do much for the value of the Baltimore Ravens, at least according to Forbes magazine. The team's now worth $1.22 billion, 6 percent more than last year's $1.16 billion, according to an annual calculation released Wednesday by the business magazine. While that pushed the franchise, owned by Salisbury graduate and technology staffing entrepreneur Steve Bisciotti, from the 11th most-valuable team in the league to No. 9, the championship season did not result in a significant boost to revenue when compared with other teams.
