NEW ORLEANS - Inside the Ravens' locker room late Thursday night, wide receiver Kamar Aiken broke into a smile as he reflected on how to handle the anxiety of waiting to learn whether he has made the team. With Saturday's 4 p.m. deadline for the 53-man roster closing in on the Ravens, Aiken and his fellow wide receivers likely made one decision even more difficult with their performances in the team's preseason finale, a 22-13 victory over the New Orleans Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

A roundup of NFL experts' picks for Sunday's game between the Rav e ns and Chicago Bears. * FoxSports.com's Peter Schrager expects the Ravens to edge the Bears, 23-20 . Don't look now, but the Ravens could be primed for a nice second-half run. Sure, the offense is a nightmare. And yes, they were fortunate to win last week after almost giving it up on an inexplicable 51-yard Hail Mary pass as time expired. But, the defense looks about as good as it ever did last season.

The NFL draft is the height of manufactured human drama, and because of that, something that could probably take two hours without commercial breaks and television filler takes around four. But it's very engrossing. That's why we write the Coffee Companion, where Monday through Friday, we recap the biggest sports headlines of the day. - The NFL Draft had its fair share of drama - quarterback Blake Bortles at No. 3 to Jacksonville, Johnny Manziel's slide, and the Vikings trade up to ensure they got Teddy Bridgewater.

Each Wednesday, blogger Matt Vensel highlights five stats that really mean something for the Ravens. 22.9 - Andy Dalton's passer rating when targeting Lardarius Webb, Jimmy Smith or Corey Graham. The Ravens have a talented group of cornerbacks, but before Sunday's 20-17 overtime win over the Cincinnati Bengals, it seemed as though at least one would get picked on each week. But against the Bengals, the corners came to play. Lardarius Webb defended six passes and got his first interception of the season.

The Ravens were without the services of Pro Bowl defensive lineman Haloti Ngata during Sunday's 23-20 overtime loss to the Chicago Bears . Ngata injured his left knee in last week's win over the Cincinnati Bengals. He finished that game but was listed as questionable heading into Sunday and did not suit up. With Ngata sidelined against the bears, Terrence Cody got his first start of the season at nose tackle. He played a season-high 35 defensive snaps out of a possible 62 snaps and was credited with one tackle.

Now that the NFL season is here, I'm putting a twist on my weekly Blogger on Blogger series. Each week, I will enlist a blogger who regularly writes about the Ravens' opponent to help me break down the game. This week, I exchanged emails with Jeff Hughes, who blogs about the Chicago Bears for Da Bears Blog . MV: Nine games into the Marc Trestman era, the Bears are a game out of first place in the NFC North despite key injuries. How have the Bears changed under Trestman and how does the hire look today?

Each week, Baltimore Sun reporters Aaron Wilson and Matt Vensel look back at the Ravens' previous game and that of their next opponent. Bears 23, Ravens 20, OT STRATEGY: Embracing a smash-mouth approach due to extremely sloppy field conditions, the Ravens revitalized their running game to exploit a shoddy run defense. Ray Rice ran decisively behind an offensive line that delivered second-level blocks to wall off linebackers. The passing game avoided deep shots, given the severe weather at Soldier Field.

Looking to fill their head-coaching vacancy, the Chicago Bears had interest in Ravens' assistant head coach and special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg. However, the talks between the two sides never went beyond the preliminary stages, according to team sources. Rosburg, 57, never had a formal, in-depth interview and didn't aggressive ly pursue the opening as he was busy helping the Ravens prepare for their playoff run. The Chicago Tribune first reported today that the Bears  spoke to  Rosburg before hiring Marc Trestman, the former coach of the Montreal Alouettes in the Canadian Football League.

Corey Graham exceeded the expectations of just about everyone beyond himself and the Ravens after he signed as a free agent two offseasons ago. He had been a special teams standout for the Chicago Bears before joining the Ravens, who promised him a chance to prove himself as a cornerback. Graham entered the 2012 season fourth on the depth chart at his position, but after injuries to Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith, he found himself in the starting lineup and rarely looked out of place.

Jerry Angelo spent a decade as the general manager of the Chicago Bears, but he is probably best known in Baltimore as the guy who botched that would-be draft-night trade with the Ravens three years ago. We haven't heard from Angelo in a while as he has been out of the league for a couple of years. But this week, Angelo, once again, did not endear himself to the Ravens and their fans -- or their quarterback. The ex-NFL exec, who now contributes to The Sideline View, ranked the NFL's starting quarterbacks for the website this week.

In the midst of his most difficult season, Ravens running back Ray Rice vowed that he'll rededicate himself during the offseason to regaining his form as one of the top all-purpose backs in the league. During a season in which he battled a strained left hip flexor and now has a quadriceps injury, Rice ranks 26th in the NFL in rushing with 645 yards and is averaging a paltry 3.1 yards per carry. This is the worst season statistically for the three-time Pro Bowl selection since he became a full-time starter in 2009 and the only one he hasn't rushed for at least 1,000 yards since his rookie season in 2008.

Lions 21, Bears19 Strategy: The Bears offense has a different look to it under new coach Marc Trestman, who was known as an offensive innovator in the CFL. The Bears use a vertical passing attack to take advantage of strong-armed quarterback Jay Cutler and dangerous outside wide receivers Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. They also have a versatile running game that tries to get running back Matt Forte into space. On defense, even with former coach Lovie Smith gone, the Bears still use their Cover Two base defense out of a 4-3 front, though it appears they no longer have the personnel to excel in that scheme.

When the Ravens resumed control of the football at their 16-yard line with just under five minutes left to play Sunday, it felt as if the Chicago Bears' end zone was 184 yards away, not 84. Their offense had struggled to get traction, both literally and figuratively, in the second half and now trailed by a field goal. Facing long odds of winning, the Ravens needed to put together one efficient drive. And they would. After two incompletions to start the drive, their win probability was at 22 percent, according to Advanced NFL Stats.

It's been a month since Ravens wide receiver Deonte Thompson has played in a football game as he's been inactive ever since catching one pass during a November overtime loss to the Chicago Bears. Now that veteran wide receiver Brandon Stokley has been placed on injured reserve with a concussion, Thompson has an increased chance of being active Monday night against the Detroit Lions. If Thompson is active, the Ravens would have five wide receivers active Monday, including Torrey Smith, Jacoby Jones, Marlon Brown and Tandon Doss.
