Ravens safety Ed Reed has gotten to know Denver Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey pretty well over the past decade. They didn't exactly plan it that way, to vacation together in Hawaii pretty much every winter since Reed came into the NFL in 2002. But they have lined up next to each other in eight of the past 10 Pro Bowls. Both are among the NFL's active leaders in interceptions. Both will probably wind up in the Hall of Fame. Both are 34, and while their play has understandably tailed off as they age, they still flash the pure talent and play-making ability that has made them two of the most feared defensive backs of this era. “I have a lot of respect for Champ, man,” Reed said in a rare podium appearance Wednesday.

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.

Ravens speedy wide receiver Torrey Smith kept accelerating past Denver Broncos star cornerback Champ Bailey on Saturday, finding another gear that the veteran defensive back couldn't match or even approach. Shut down by Bailey earlier this season during a regular-season defeat in December at M&T Bank Stadium, Smith transformed his personal rematch Saturday into a steady measure of revenge. Smith made the perennial Pro Bowl cornerback look every bit of his 34 years on Saturday, burning him twice for touchdowns during the Ravens' dramatic 38-35 double-overtime victory at frosty Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium.

ASHBURN, Va. - Like a billboard painter who has to drive by a misspelled sign each day, Champ Bailey is being consistently reminded of his most recent failure. If the Washington television stations haven't been showing ad nauseam the 64-yard touchdown pass Bailey surrendered to Dallas' Rocket Ismail in the fourth quarter of the Redskins' 20-14 loss to the Cowboys last Sunday, reporters have been asking him about the play ad infinitum this week. But, while some well-placed turpentine can remove the incorrect letters on the sign, nothing will change what happened to Bailey on Sunday, and no one knows that better than him. "I can look right at the film and tell you," said Bailey, a third-year cornerback.

ASHBURN, Va. -- Can the Washington Redskins, who were 6-10 last season, truly think of contending for a Super Bowl after a 2-1 start?"Why not the Redskins?" fullback Larry Centers said. "That's the way I look at it. It's pretty wide-open."With usual NFC favorites Minnesota, Green Bay and San Francisco losing their aura of invincibility this year, many of the Redskins see a window of opportunity to make their best run under sixth-year coach Norv Turner.The Redskins have proven they can score, tying a club record of 112 points after three games that was established by the team's 1991 Super Bowl champions.

DENVER -- Maddeningly meticulous and impeccably precise, this was Peyton Manning at his cruel best. Skewering a Denver defense that was designed specifically to stop him, Manning led the Indianapolis Colts over, around and through the Broncos yesterday, throwing for 345 yards and three touchdowns to Reggie Wayne for a message-sending 34-31 victory. "When you play a guy like Peyton Manning, and the guy's going to put it on there on the money, what can you do?" Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey said.

After the Ravens officially designated Pro Bowl cornerback Chris McAlister as their franchise player yesterday, the sides reached their first agreement: Let's wait to see how the market unfolds. With no premier cornerback signing a long-term deal over the past five years, the sticking point in negotiations between the Ravens and McAlister has been defining the market value for a young shutdown cover man. But the standstill talks with McAlister could be accelerated if new contracts are completed with cornerbacks Champ Bailey and Charles Woodson, both of whom also were given the franchise tag by their teams.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Washington Redskins coach Steve Spurrier knows his offense could score 38 points for the second consecutive game and he still won't win over those who say his pass-happy approach will not win in the NFL. He could "hang half-a-hundred," as he used to say in college, on the Carolina Panthers at Ericsson Stadium tonight and he knows the critics will say, "It's only a preseason game; wait until the real bullets start flying." Spurrier, who made his NFL debut last Saturday with a 38-7 victory against the San Francisco 49ers in Japan, knows the final grade on his Fun 'N Gun offense won't be issued until after all of the yards, touchdowns, victories and defeats have been tabulated in January.

Every week, I hope to bring you a quick Q&A with someone who covers the Ravens' opponent that week. This week, I chatted with Mike Klis, who covers the Denver Broncos for The Denver Post. MV: I'm sure it has been a crazy whirlwind covering the Broncos over the past 12 months, going from Tebowmania to the passing brilliance of Peyton Manning. Have you ever seen an offense radically change its philosophy from one season to the next while still having so much success? MK: It has been unique.

T he beeping you hear is coming from the AFC West champion Denver Broncos, who are moving in reverse, having lost three in a row. The bleeping you hear is coming from the Black Hole, which watched the Oakland Raiders blow a chance Sunday to get to the playoffs for the first time since 2002. How the West was won? This was more, does anybody want the West? The Broncos, who will host Pittsburgh in a first-round game, came into their finale against Kansas City in control of their own destiny.

In consecutive drafts in 1998 and 1999, the Ravens found two starting Super Bowl cornerbacks. One was smallish Duane Starks; the other was prototypical big cornerback Chris McAlister. In each case, the price was the 10 t h overall pick. Now, for the first time since general manager Ozzie Newsome empowered that Super Bowl defense, the Ravens could spend a first-round pick Thursday night in search of the elusive shutdown cornerback. Or they could wait until the third round to find reinforcements for Chuck Pagano's retooled secondary.

Ravens run offense vs. Broncos run defense: Ray Rice is expected to return to the starting lineup after being limited last Sunday with a bruised right knee. That could provide a boost to a Ravens running attack that is averaging 3 yards per carry (second-worst in the NFL). Rice, whose carries have decreased every week since the season opener, is due for a breakout game. Denver is tied for 12th in the NFL in run defense after containing Tennessee's Chris Johnson (53 yards on 19 carries)

Chris McAlister could be absent beyond next week's mandatory minicamp. The agent for the Pro Bowl cornerback said yesterday that the progress made on a long-term contract in July might determine whether McAlister reports for the start of Ravens training camp. McAlister was designated the team's franchise player for a second straight year to keep him from becoming an unrestricted free agent and is scheduled to make $7.1 million this year. Because he has yet to sign the tender, he isn't under contract and can't be penalized if he misses any team function.

Midway through last season, when Deion Sanders was hobbled with a foot injury and Chris McAlister's hurting shoulder limited his action for three games, the Ravens were stuck - both on the field and in personnel. "We got into a situation at corner where Chris goes down and Deion goes down," general manager Ozzie Newsome said. "You don't have players, and it's tough in October and December to go out and find players that can come in and contribute to your football team. "I think it hurt us, no doubt, in our ability to get off the field on third down when Deion and Chris were injured.
