Surrounded by a large crowd of NFL scouts and coaches Monday afternoon at rain-soaked Johnny Unitas Stadium, Towson star running back Terrance West cut sharply to his left and adeptly corralled an intermediate pass without breaking stride. West displayed sound hands, quick feet and impressive balance in front of 22 NFL teams during his Pro Day workout. He didn't drop a pass and maintained his footing despite a steady downpour. "If I had to run on fire, I'd do it, man," said West, a Northwestern graduate who measured in at 5 feet 9, 230 pounds.

The Ravens have really impressed on defense the past two weeks. That will challenge EJ Manuel, who has struggled some and did so last week against the Jets.

Ravens find a way.   * ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio and Michael David Smith both believe the Ravens will win . MDS's take: I picked against the Ravens last week and got it wrong.

After sitting out last week's win over the Houston Texans with a hip injury, the first game he had missed since his rookie season, running back Ray Rice was listed as questionable heading into Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills. Not only did Rice play, he received a heavy workload in the 23-20 loss . Rice played 43 of the team's 63 offensive snaps, though he was mostly just there for show -- well, pass blocking if you want to get technical. Rice received just five carries as the Ravens abandoned the running game at halftime, and he was targeted just once as a receiver on the 50 passes that Joe Flacco tossed.

Free safety Ed Reed's admission that he has been playing with a torn labrum in his shoulder hasn't hurt the Ravens greatly on the field, but it could hit the organization in the wallet. That's because the NFL announced Friday that it had fined the Buffalo Bills $20,000 for violating the league's policy on reporting injury information. Specifically, Buffalo had not listed defensive end Mario Williams on its injury reports despite his public revelation on Oct. 3 that he had been playing with a sprained wrist.

When Doug Flutie was considering giving up a guaranteed contract in Canada to sign with the Buffalo Bills last year, his wife advised him against doing it."She was telling me all along that, `They're not going to give you that opportunity. They didn't give it to you last time around and they won't give it to you now,' " Flutie said.Shortly after Flutie signed with the Bills, they traded a first-round choice for Rob Johnson and gave him a $25 million contract even though he had started one NFL game.

When Ed Reed made his Houston Texans debut and his return to Baltimore on that Sunday afternoon back in September, the free safety made so little impact, even one of his former teammates wondered where Reed -- the bearded, ball-hawking, sure-fire Hall-of-Famer -- was during a 30-9 Ravens victory. “I didn't [notice] him out there until the end of the third," befuddled Ravens defensive tackle Arthur Jones said without the slightest hint of malice. "I was like, ' Is Ed Reed playing ?

Men's college lacrosse MAAC bids to host D-I quarterfinals in Buffalo The Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference submitted a bid to host the NCAA Division I men's lacrosse quarterfinals at Ralph Wilson Stadium, home to the NFL's Buffalo Bills, sometime between 2015 and 2018, according to Buffalo Business First. The quarterfinals have never been held in the Buffalo-Niagara region. The area would seem to fit with the NCAA's vision to expand the game geographically: Last season, two quarterfinals were played at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, the first-ever quarterfinal site not on the East Coast.

Ray Rice had welts on his forehead and upper right arm. He needed to douse his eyes with drops to clear them of dirt and sweat. After more than three hours of playing in stifling heat and humidity, the Ravens diminutive running back looked like a man who needed a shower followed by a long nap. Rice's afternoon mirrored that of the Ravens, who were able to exhale only after Miami Dolphins kicker Caleb Sturgis sent a 57-yard field-goal attempt wide...

Although Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco endured arguably his worst game ever last Sunday against the Buffalo Bills, the mistake-filled performance hasn't dented his confidence. Flacco, who threw five interceptions in the 23-20 loss, struck a resilient tone Wednesday as he prepared for this Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. “It's definitely not easy to throw five interceptions and just be cool with it,” Flacco said. “It was the main reason why we didn't win that football game.

While the Baltimore Ravens and the Buffalo Bills prepare for their Sunday matchup, the two franchises don't seem to have much in common. Buffalo has gone through six general managers since 2000 and hasn't made the playoffs during that time. Meanwhile, Baltimore has been the model of consistency, with nine playoff appearances and two Super Bowl championships. The two cities do share one unflattering trait, though. Baltimore and Buffalo rank as the only metropolitan areas with a National Football League franchise that don't also have a Fortune 500 company within their boundaries, according to a release from Maryland Business for Responsive Government.

It seems fairly obvious that when John Harbaugh and the Ravens entered the locker room at halftime, trailing by 13 points to a young and talented but inferior Buffalo Bills team, the head coach had seen enough. The Ravens had not found much running room in their first three games of the season, but the front sevens they faced in those games were among the league's best. These were the Bills, though, a team that had been allowing 155 yards on the ground entering Sunday's game, and they were whipping his offensive line up front.
