Through two games, it has been a beast-or-famine season for the Texans' defense. Mostly, the Texans have been impenetrable. The Chargers didn't make a first down on any of their final five possessions (only to go off for 539 yards against the Eagles this past Sunday). The Titans went three-and-out four consecutive times in the third quarter against the Texans, then suffered the indignity of a two-and-out to start the fourth quarter when Joe Mays dumped Chris Johnson for a safety.

Salisbury's 37-34 overtime upset of then-No. 6 St. John Fisher last Saturday was punctuated by senior fullback J.D. Hook's 16-yard touchdown run. But the running game has been powering the offense all season. The Sea Gulls (2-2 overall and 1-1 in the Empire 8 Athletic Conference) have averaged 289.8 rushing yards thus far, seventh-best in Division III. They compiled 312 rushing yards against a Cardinals defense that had surrendered an average of 288.7 total yards prior to Saturday's contest.

Punter Sam Koch had a costly shank in the fourth quarter Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, a 25-yarder that gave the Browns the football at their 29-yard line instead of pinning them deep. They wound up driving for a field goal. Koch averaged 42.6 yards with a 34.9 net. For the season, Koch is averaging just 44.8 yards with a 37.6 net and has had two blocked. “Sam will be the first to tell you that he's just got to play more consistently in games with punts, especially in critical situations,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.

Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons thought his team had a real chance to make a move on the Orioles in the American League East race coming back from the All-Star break. The Blue Jays were four games out of first place, but they were facing three struggling teams, two at home, while the Orioles had to start on the West Coast with the Oakland Athletics, the Los Angeles Angels and the Seattle Mariners. The Orioles went 6-4 on that trip, won five of their next seven games and then took two of three from the Blue Jays in Toronto.

With another win Thursday night against the Texas Rangers, Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez continued his quietly consistent streak of pitching performances. Gonzalez allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out four in the Orioles' 3-1 victory at Camden Yards . It was the 12th time in his 16 outings that he put together a quality start, and his seventh straight, the longest streak by an Oriole this year. During that streak, he's 5-1 with a 2.49 ERA in 47 innings.

With his career entering the red zone, Travis Taylor is primed to score a breakthrough season. The former first-round pick is in the best position of his four-year Ravens career, just as the projected bust-out window for a receiver is slowly closing on him. For the first time, he has the same starting quarterback (Chris Redman) in consecutive training camps and he has two veteran wide-outs (Frank Sanders and Marcus Robinson) beside him to spread out defenses. The challenge for Taylor is to prove he can avoid his annual disappearing act and deliver some magic on the field.

When the Seattle Seahawks successfully wooed Tarvaris Jackson as an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, coach Pete Carroll did not waste much time anointing Jackson as the starting quarterback despite the presence of Charlie Whitehurst on the roster. The move has produced less-than-desirable results thus far. With six starts under his belt, Jackson ranks in the bottom fourth of the NFL in touchdown passes (six), interceptions (nine) and passer rating (73.2). Jackson has thrown two 300-yard games, and the Seahawks have lost both contests.

NEW YORK - Donald Trump began NASCAR's day yesterday with a little joke. "I could say fire your engines!" said the star of The Apprentice, the reality TV show on which he has made the phrase, "You're fired!" famous. "But I won't." Instead, Trump gave the traditional command for "Gentlemen, start your engines," and the top 10 drivers in the Nextel Cup season pushed the buttons that started their race cars' motors in Times Square. Thousands lined the streets, blocked off by police, as the cars followed a set route to the NASCAR offices on Park Avenue.

COLLEGE PARK - On a typical Saturday night after a game, Maryland coach Randy Edsall will sit in his home office and break down the film, going through and analyzing each play while also grading the performance of each player. And whether it was from home or from his office inside Gossett Team House, Edsall spent Saturday night evaluating the film of the Terps ' loss to West Virginia on Saturday afternoon. What he saw? A lot of mistakes and missed opportunities that led to Maryland falling behind, 28-6, early and eventually losing, 40-37.

CHICAGO -- After the Orioles opened up their largest division lead in nearly 17 years with a 5-1 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, the visiting clubhouse of U.S. Cellular Field was loose. Players sang along to the lyrics of the Zac Brown Band's song, "Free," as it blasted from the speakers after the Orioles -- sparked by a magnificent start from right-hander Chris Tillman -- extended their American League East advantage over the New York Yankees to 8 1/2 games. It's the club's largest lead in the division since Sept.

In the summer of 2007, then-Sen. Barack Obama was asked if he was worried that his proposed withdrawal from Iraq would result in ethnic cleansing or even genocide. He scoffed at the premise. "By that argument you would have 300,000 troops in the Congo right now -- where millions have been slaughtered as a consequence of ethnic strife -- which we haven't done," he told the Associated Press. "We would be deploying unilaterally and occupying the Sudan, which we haven't done.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell defends his decision on the two-game suspension of Ray Rice by citing the need to remain "consistent" with like violations regarding domestic violence ( "Roger Goodell defends two-game suspension of Ravens' Ray Rice," Aug. 2). He states the NFL takes the issue of domestic violence "seriously. " In his position of leadership, remaining "consistent" only maintains the league's status quo regarding its weak stance on domestic violence. Stronger action by Mr. Goodell would have sent the clear message to NFL players, management, staff and fans that the league is willing to take a societal leadership role, as a major entertainment employer, in an effort to eliminate domestic violence.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Friday defended the two-game suspension he handed down to Ravens running back Ray Rice, saying it was consistent with previous punishments in domestic violence incidents. “We have to remain consistent,” Goodell told reporters while in Canton, Ohio, for Pro Football Hall of Fame weekend. “We can't just make up the discipline. It has to be consistent with other cases, and it was.” Goodell's comments were his first on the subject since the NFL announced Rice's discipline July 24. In addition to being suspended for two games, Rice was fined $529,000.

He asked such nationally known playwrights as Christopher Durang, Neil LaBute and the Baltimore-born Anna Deavere Smith to answer the question, "What is my America?" and then turned their responses into three-minute films.

The trick to serving up good crabs is consistency, “consistency of product and consistency of service,” says Richard Anderson, owner of The Seafood Stop in Fallston, a family-owned and run seafood market and carryout. That standard has been a winning strategy for Anderson since 1989, when he started his crab business from a truck on the side of the road. It helped him expand to a seafood market and restaurant within three years and led to launching a second market in 2006, Richard’s Fish & Crabs, just eight miles away.

The Ravens, at first glance, appear to have gotten better at center after trading Sunday for Jeremy Zuttah . Zuttah, a 2008 third-round pick, is an established veteran, having started 76 games for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during his six-year NFL career. After bouncing around between both guard positions and the center spot, Zuttah was mostly a center for the Buccaneers in recent years. But while he should be an upgrade over Gino Gradkowski, it is no sure thing he will stabilize the position.

Hairston and a board rightly viewed as overly deferential to him. Among other things, Mr. Hairston had appeared completely oblivious to the views of those he was supposed to be serving - the parents and children of Baltimore County - on matters ranging from...
