The Ravens' aerial attack will match wits with a San Diego Chargers' pass defense that ranks seventh in the NFL, allowing an average of 201.5 yards. Headlining that Chargers' unit is free safety Eric Weddle, whose team-leading seven interceptions are tied with Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson and New England Patriots cornerback Kyle Arrington for the NFL lead. “He's just got good ball skills,” Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said of Weddle. “He's back there at safety, and he's got the skills.

If this weekend's NFL draft were a fairy tale, the Ravens would satisfy their hunger for a cornerback by moving up six slots in a trade with the Oakland Raiders to select Michigan All-American and Heisman Trophy winner Charles Woodson.The Raiders own the fourth overall selection, a place that has been kind to the Ravens by yielding offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden and linebacker Peter Boulware in the past two drafts.But the chance of such a scenario unfolding is extremely slim, partly because the Ravens would have to give up too much to climb that high on the draft board, partly because Woodson blew away the Raiders at a recent workout, partly because Oakland had the league's worst defense in 1997.

Mike Patterson returned to Eagles camp on Saturday, 10 days after collapsing and suffering a seizure during practice in Bethlehem, Pa. Patterson, 27, didn't practice, but was in uniform doing strength and conditioning drills with trainer Rick Burkholder and several other teammates. "I feel great," Patterson said. The 300-pound defensive tackle collapsed on Aug. 3 and was taken from the field in an ambulance and hospitalized for three days. Patterson, who has played in more games as an Eagle than anybody on the team, was diagnosed with a brain AVM, or arteriovenous malformation, a prenatal condition in which blood travels abnormally between the arteries and veins.

ATLANTA — The postseason began a week early for the Packers, who needed a victory in the regular-season finale over the Bears just to make the playoffs. Now, with the hot hand of quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the best secondary in the postseason, they're one victory away from reaching Super Bowl XLV. It's a remarkable story for a team that placed 15 players on injured reserve this season and had 13 starters miss time because of injuries. The sixth-seeded Packers advanced to next Sunday's NFC championship game with an 48-21 demolition of the Falcons on Saturday.

OAKLAND, Calif. - The three previous attempts from scrimmage ended with an 8-yard sack, a jump-ball incompletion and an inexcusable delay-of-game penalty for the Ravens' offense. Still, with 1:17 left in the game and his team trailing by eight on a fourth-and-23 from its own 8, quarterback Anthony Wright figured his Ravens would find a way out of the jam somehow. There was no such magic. Wright's final pass in the Ravens' 20-12 loss to the Oakland Raiders at Network Associates Coliseum was a desperate heave nearly picked off by cornerback Terrance Shaw, leaving all the things that went right for the Ravens' offense during their three-game winning streak a memory.

BURBANK, Calif. -- Heisman Trophy winner Charles Woodson seemed right at home in the land of stardom. He toured Universal Studios yesterday with the rest of the participants in the 84th Rose Bowl, posed for publicity shots with the dinosaurs of Jurassic Park, and enjoyed the kind of attention that has long been reserved for the guys who spend their quality time on the other side of the ball.Woodson, of course, is the first defensive player to win the Heisman, a distinction that has pushed him to the center of the college football universe.

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.

PASADENA, Calif. -- Washington State quarterback Ryan Leaf has been the other guy all year, so why should the 84th Rose Bowl be any different?He was buried under Peyton Manning's press clippings all season and overlooked by the Heisman voters and, well, pretty much misunderstood by everyone from the residents of his hometown in Great Falls, Mont., to the national media.So, why not tomorrow, when he will take the field against Heisman Trophy winner Charles Woodson and the supposedly soon-to-be-crowned national champion Michigan Wolverines?

ASHBURN, Va. - When Champ Bailey says he is the best cornerback in the NFL, his claim has justification. Just ask Tampa Bay wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson, who called the Washington cornerback the league's best this past summer. Just ask CBS.Sportsline.com, which asked more than 8,000 people to vote for the best cornerback in the NFL. Thirty-four percent selected Bailey over Oakland's Charles Woodson (27.9 percent). Just ask Curtis Conway of the New York Jets and Peerless Price of the Atlanta Falcons, who combined to catch four balls for 56 yards as Bailey shadowed their every move in the season's first two games.

SAN DIEGO - The Oakland Raiders' weakness on defense has a touch of coincidence and perseverance. Both of their cornerbacks - Charles Woodson and Tory James - broke their legs during the season and had protective plates inserted in their legs last month that allowed them to play all the way to today's Super Bowl. Although the Tampa Bay Buccaneers likely will try to attack them, the Raiders feel confident that Woodson and James can hold up in their matchups since the Buccaneers' Keyshawn Johnson and Keenan McCardell aren't the quickest receivers.

SAN DIEGO - Rod Woodson has turned back the clock by taking time off. The Oakland Raiders' free safety, 37, has traded practice for film study, becoming merely a bystander for most of the workouts this season. The routine has led to his teammates calling him "Sunday" because that's the only time the Raiders see him play. While the nicknames change, the standard remains the same because of Woodson's impeccable timing. Just as he did so often for the Ravens, Woodson relies on anticipation and instinct to turn games around at the critical moments.
