The Ravens escaped their first meeting with the Cleveland Browns on Sept. 27 with a 23-16 win, and the game-winning touchdown was provided when cornerback Cary Williams jumped an out route run by wide receiver Travis Benjamin for an interception he returned 63 yards for a touchdown. This week, Williams recalled his perspective on the turning point of the game. What do you remember about that interception? "I just recognized the formation. Once I saw that and recognized the motion, then I knew it was going to be a play that I had seen before in previous games.

Former Ravens cornerback Cary Williams didn't leave his disdain for the New England Patriots here in Baltimore when he drove up I-95 and signed with the Philadelphia Eagles. While explaining to the Philadelphia Inquirer why he wasn't thrilled with the Eagles' upcoming joint practices with New England, Williams said Friday that the Patriots are “cheaters.” “I give them all the credit in the world, but one fact remains: they haven't won a Super Bowl since they got caught,” Williams said, in reference to the Patriots “Spygate” scandal in 2007.

Cornerback Cary Williams and wide receiver Tandon Doss got into a heated argument during Monday's practice but they were separated before the altercation got physical. It all started when Williams and wide receiver Torrey Smith exchanged a few words, with Williams accusing Smith of holding him. Then Doss, who sat out the practice with a minor hamstring injury, began taunting Williams loudly from near the huddle. After Doss lobbed insults at Williams from about 10 yards away for a minute or two, he finally got under the cornerback's skin.

Now that Ray Rice has held a widely criticized news conference Friday that included some awkward, off-the-cuff moments and no public apology to his wife, just months after their physical altercation at an Atlantic City, N.J., casino, the Ravens' star running back is hoping for a much smoother experience on the football field. That return could be delayed, though, by a punishment under the NFL's personal-conduct policy. The Ravens are bracing for a potential multiple-game suspension, but no discipline has been determined, and Rice is expected to meet soon with commissioner Roger Goodell.

After a season in which he emerged as one of the Ravens' most pleasant surprises, cornerback Cary Williams has signed his second-round restricted free agent tender. The tender carries a $1.927 million salary for the 2012 season. Williams is the last Ravens' restricted free agent to have his contract situation settled. The Ravens reached an agreement with cornerback Lardarius Webb on a five-year, $50 million deal and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe signed his second-round tender last month.  The Ravens have explored a long-term contract extension with Williams, but there doesn't appear to be anything imminent on that front and the 27-year-old is focused on making a healthy return from February hip surgery to repair a torn labrum.

Until Sunday, Sam Koch had never thrown a pass in any football game he ever played — not in the NFL, not college, not high school. So when the Ravens punter threw — and completed — that first pass out of punt formation, it was one for the books. Koch's 13-yard pass play with gunner Cary Williams did not tilt the balance of the Ravens' 26-10 romp over the Miami Dolphins, but it set new standards for punters. First of all, the Ravens didn't call for a fake. Second, it was not automatic that Koch throw the ball just because the Dolphins neglected to cover Williams on the left side of the Ravens' formation.

When opportunity wafted through the stale humidity of Thursday's preseason opener, second-year Ravens cornerback Cary Williams made sure to seize the moment. Playing three quarters against the Carolina Panthers out of necessity, Williams gave evidence the Ravens do, indeed, have depth at a position ravaged by injury this summer. He knocked down a second-quarter pass in the end zone from quarterback Jimmy Clausen, picked off the Carolina rookie in the third quarter and, helmet flying, made a jarring, waist tackle on Armanti Edwards later to deny a long completion.

Cary Williams wasn't sure he'd be able to play, much less start, in the Ravens' regular-season finale because of the concussion he sustained in the Christmas Eve win against the Cleveland Browns. “It was up in the air,” the cornerback conceded. “It depended on whether or not the doctors wanted to release me. But I definitely wanted to play and not let my teammates down this week.” That turned out to be a fortuitous decision as Williams led the defense with three pass breakups and tied for third with six tackles in the Ravens' 24-16 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday.

Ravens reserve cornerback Cary Williams was suspended two games by the NFL for a violation of the personal conduct policy, the team confirmed Thursday. Williams was signed by the Ravens on Nov. 24 off the Tennessee Titans' practice squad. "We've been aware of this since before we signed Cary," general manager Ozzie Newsome said in a statement. The disciplinary action was taken by the NFL because of "a situation" involving Williams' family in Tennessee while he was a member of the Titans, his agent, Marc Lillibridge, said Thursday.

In one corner is a soft-spoken 27-year-old who was the biggest surprise of last year's training camp. Cary Williams, who went undrafted out of Division II Washburn and was later plucked from the Tennessee Titans' practice squad, started every game for the Ravens in 2011. In the other corner is a confident 2011 first-round pick whom some assumed would be handed Williams' job this summer. Jimmy Smith carried himself like a playful young man fresh out of college during his rookie season, but teammates say the 24-year-old has grown up a lot in the past year.

By most measures, the Ravens have one of the better defenses in the NFL. They are currently ranked 10th in scoring defense and 10th in yards allowed. They are seventh in the league with 28 sacks. And only the Kansas City Chiefs have defended better in the red zone. So what's missing? Well, besides the wins? Takeaways. The Ravens have an uncharacteristic minus-three turnover differential this season, due in large part to the fact that they have created just 10 turnovers in eight games.

Each Wednesday, blogger Matt Vensel will highlight five statistics that really mean something for the Ravens. The annual Football Outsiders Almanac arrived in my email inbox this morning, which felt like Christmas for a football and numbers nut like me. Today's addition of “Five Ravens stats that stand out,” the first since the Super Bowl, will feature tidbits from their 2013 almanac, but I highly recommend picking up a copy of it here...

As you come to grips to life without Pro Bowl fullback Vonta Leach , consider the following statement: Before this offseason, no NFL team had lost more than five Super Bowl starters from its roster before the following season. As the Ravens start their mandatory minicamp this afternoon, they will be without nine players that started on Feb. 3 when the Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers, 34-31, to win Super Bowl XLVII. That list includes Leach (released Tuesday), wide receiver Anquan Boldin (traded to San Francisco)

Jimmy Smith has prototypical size for the cornerback position. He has the speed to bump receivers, then trail them down the sideline. He has confidence to burn, too, which is always a good thing to have at that position. In his first two seasons with the Ravens, Smith showed occasional flashes, but he couldn't stay on the field long enough to live up to the lofty expectations that came with him being a first-round pick in the 2011 NFL draft. But as Smith enters his third season in the league, the expectations he soon will face might be even greater.

Look for the Cleveland Browns to make an early push during free agency to sign several of the Ravens defensive players. The Browns are $47 million under the salary cap and have privately showed interest in linebackers Dannell Ellerbe, Paul Kruger and cornerback Cary Williams. The Ravens won't make a hard push to sign Kruger and Williams, but they want Ellerbe back.There is speculation Ellerbe wants $6 million per season and the Ravens are prepared to offer $5 million. Ellerbe's durability will be an issue if and when he hits the market.

Aw, Joe, say it ain't so that your contract talks will drag on and you and the Ravens won't be able to reach a long-term agreement ("Flacco talks to begin at combine," Feb. 12). Baltimore loves you and we're so proud of your play for the last five years. You've shown us you're a blue collar Joe just like the rest of us - only with a lot more talent - and we don't want to believe you could hold the Ravens hostage for millions of dollars your great- grandchildren will never be able to spend.

Ravens cornerback Cary Williams said he had faith that the “Calvin Johnson” rule would bail him out. Despite the initial ruling of a 9-yard touchdown grab by Cincinnati Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham, Williams said he felt fairly certain that the touchdown would be overturned after Gresham lost possession of the football after Williams tackled him. “He did a good job of catching it,” Williams said. “It was what it was, but I knew that from the Detroit play, they couldn't give it to him because he didn't have control going all the way to the ground.

NEW ORLEANS -- The vision has consumed some of them for almost a decade. During their most painful moments as Ravens, they wondered if it would ever happen, if they would ever experience a moment that their leader has spoken of so many times. Linebacker Ray Lewis is the only Ravens player qualified to talk about it. Twelve years ago, he stood on the field at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla., and lifted the Lombardi Trophy as confetti rained down on the Super Bowl champions.

While much of the focus in the offseason and preseason was on the negotiations for a long-term deal between the Ravens and quarterback Joe Flacco, cornerback Cary Williams also took a risk and declined a three-year, $15 million extension. But Williams said he never viewed his decision as a risk. “I just left it in God's hands,” he said after Friday's practice. “At the end of the day, I knew that God had brought me this far, and all of that hard work and preparation was going to come into play, and I just continued to keep my head down, continued to do what I'm normally doing, and I felt success would be there.
