Nine offensive tackles were taken in the first four rounds of this year's NFL draft. Dwight Freeney would like to extend a personal welcome to each of them. Of course with the Colts' whirling dervish of a defensive end, there's always a spin. "I'm licking my chops," Freeney said, likely envisioning an even better season than he had last year, when he had 131/2 sacks and helped lead his team to the Super Bowl. "When you have a rookie offensive tackle, I can't wait," he said.

Ravens officials made it clear at this week's NFL meetings that their primary focus over the next month is not what remains on the free-agent market. With 12 selections in next month's draft, the organization is busy evaluating college players who will help replenish a roster that has been hit hard by free agency, releases and retirements. But with a little over $7 million of remaining salary-cap space, the Ravens are still looking to add a couple of free agents, hoping to find a couple of bargains that will help fill some holes.

Shortly after one of his worst games in recent memory, Jonathan Ogden , with his hair disheveled, his undershirt torn and displaying the mannerisms of a person still juiced from battle, offered up this basic explanation. Dwight Freeney is good. Real good. Freeney has to be because days like the one Ogden had in the Ravens' 20-10 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday do not happen (though they do happen numerous times a season to 95 percent of the league's other tackles)

For the second time in three years, Michael Oher has started all 16 regular-season games at left tackle. The organization's top pick in the 2009 NFL draft, Oher has yet to miss a start in his NFL career, stringing together a remarkable run of avoiding serious injury. The 26-year-old also leads the Ravens offensive line in total snaps played this season (1,058), according to Football Outsiders. But Oher finished the regular season ranked 39th among offensive tackles in pass-blocking efficiency and surrendered 10 sacks, nine hits and 26 hurries, according to Pro Football Focus.

Ray Lewis, the Ravens' emotional sparkplug, has been a constant presence on the sideline in the three games he has missed because of turf toe on his right foot, praising teammates for their production and taking them aside for additional coaching. Quarterback Peyton Manning, the face of the Indianapolis Colts, is apparently doing something very similar with the offense. Defensive end Dwight Freeney told the Baltimore media during a conference call Wednesday that Manning -- who has been shelved all season after undergoing neck surgery in the preseason -- has been working with quarterbacks Curtis Painter and Dan Orlovsky.

Colts C Jeff Saturday vs. Ravens DT Justin Bannan Saturday is a great technician and runs extremely well. He can make blocks deep into the second level. He has a good rapport with quarterback Peyton Manning, and he is a major key to the Colts' running game. Bannan has started every game in 2008 in place of Kelly Gregg. He plays with power and explosiveness, and is a load to move off the ball. If Bannan can control Saturday, the Ravens can bottle up Indianapolis' running game. Edge: Saturday: Colts WR Reggie Wayne vs. Ravens CB Frank Walker Wayne seems to have replaced Marvin Harrison as the Colts go-to receiver.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - -Although Indianapolis Colts five-time Pro Bowl defensive end Dwight Freeney has been in South Florida receiving treatment since Friday for what coach Jim Caldwell described as a third-degree low ankle sprain, his teammates are optimistic that one of the NFL's premier pass rushers will be on the field for the Super Bowl. "Dwight's doing everything he can do to get back in this game," linebacker Gary Brackett said shortly after arriving at the Harbor Beach Marriott team hotel Monday evening.

One word: Manning Dave Hyde, Sun Sentinel After more than a week of Super Bowl verbiage, let's be brief on why the Colts will win: Peyton Manning. And let's keep it simple: Peyton Manning. In fact, that's the answer to everything about this game. Why will the Colts' offense be unstoppable? Who will be the key player? Who will be the surprise player? Who has the most to gain? Peyton Manning. Peyton Manning. Peyton Manning. Peyton Manning. Can we be more clear about this game?

The one smudge to Jonathan Ogden's otherwise All-Pro career can be erased in Sunday's season opener. Ogden will confront Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney as well as memories of Freeney spinning around him for a couple of sacks last year. This time, Ogden won't be fighting injuries. He won't be fighting crowd noise on the road. It will strictly be Ogden, one of the best linemen of his generation, against Freeney, last year's NFL sacks leader. "It's a good test to see where I'm at for the first game of the season," Ogden said.

The Ravens had a lead foot in the first half, pulling away from the winless Indianapolis Colts by scoring the first 17 points of Sunday's game at M&T Bank Stadium. The game never in doubt, they coasted to a 24-10 win. Joe Flacco threw two touchdown passes. Ray Rice topped the century mark, giving him back-to-back 100-yard rushing games for the first time ever. And Terrell Suggs had three sacks to set a new single-season personal best. Here are my quick-hit thoughts after the Ravens improved to 10-3 on the year and held serve in the AFC North: 1. Terrell Suggs was already being considered as a candidate for NFL Defensive Player of the Year by many, but with seven sacks in his past three games, he now has enough sacks to catch the eyes of those who only pay attention to stats.

When the Ravens and Indianapolis Colts meet Sunday, offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie and defensive end Dwight Freeney figure to tangle early and often. But their tete-a-tete hasn't been limited solely to the NFL. In what would be their final years in college, Freeney, who amassed 16½ sacks in 2001 for Syracuse University, was blanked by McKinnie, who suited up for the University of Miami. The Hurricanes won that November 17, 2001 meeting quite easily, running away with a 59-0 rout.

Each week, we bring you a Q&A with a Ravens player, coach or team executive to help you learn a little more about the team. Today's guest is left tackle Bryant McKinnie . Did you have any apprehension about your first regular-season start with the Ravens after spending the first nine seasons of your career with the Minnesota Vikings? No. When Ray [Lewis] hit me up, I checked out the team to see where I would fit in. I kind of looked at it from that standpoint to see if it would be a good fit for me, and I thought it would be. What about this offensive makeup convinced you to sign with the Ravens?

Colts Big questions: Can the Colts avoid the curse of the Super Bowl losers? Peyton Manning is still Peyton Manning, but will he be affected by the shakeup of his offensive line? Where does returning receiver Anthony Gonzalez fit in now that Pierre Garcon and Austin Collie have proved themselves? Is the gap closing in a division that they have dominated for so many years? Big moves: In drafting defensive end Jerry Hughes, the Colts hope they have found a player who can rotate with Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis, and they also intend to incorporate some three-DE looks.

The Colts have been the model of consistency this decade, stringing together seven consecutive seasons of 12 or more victories. Now comes a curveball. The franchise is coming off a loss in the Super Bowl for the first time since 1969, the season after the Jets beat the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III. Over the last decade, there has been a strong tendency for the loser of the Super Bowl to go in the tank the next season. The Colts won't catch any breaks in their division, either.
