On the day that veteran quarterbacks such as Kerry Collins and Brian Griese trickled into the free-agent market, the Ravens had their attention fixed on the running back position. The Ravens have begun contract negotiations with Jamal Lewis and Chester Taylor, their two leading rushers who officially become free agents today. If the team can't make any progress with either of them, a league source said, the Ravens are prepared to pursue Edgerrin James, the top running back available, sometime next week.

NEW ORLEANS - Ten games into the season, Ravens rookie running back Bernard Pierce was struggling to find his way into the game plan. He had fewer than five carries in a game eight times and he didn't touch the ball in an Oct. 21 loss to the Houston Texans. LaMichael James, who was taken by the San Francisco 49ers with the 30th pick in the second round, 23 spots before the Ravens selected Pierce, wasn't even getting on the field. James was inactive for the 49ers' first 12 games. As the Ravens and 49ers prepare to meet at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday in Super Bowl XLVII, the two rookie backs have emerged as potential key players.

It's common knowledge in the NFL that the Ravens have had one of the most dominating run defenses over the past decade. But what goes unnoticed is that their run defense is even more stout at home. If the Washington Redskins' Clinton Portis lines up at M&T Bank Stadium - he has been battling injuries but has yet to miss a game this season - he'll try to do something no running back has been able to do in three seasons: gain 100 yards on the Ravens' home turf. The last back to do so was Houston's Domanick Davis in 2005, but that comes with an asterisk.

He had a funny name, a Texas drawl and churning legs that chewed up yardage. Remember Norm Bulaich, the Baltimore Colts' star running back in their 1970 Super Bowl run? He turns 65 on Christmas. Bulaich can't believe it, either. When he signed up for Medicare, he told the clerk, "I don't feel 65. Will you check it out?" She did. He was. The Colts' top draft choice 41 years ago, Buliach caught on quick: he led Baltimore in rushing as a rookie. Bulaich (rhymes with goulash)

Don Soldinger spent 17 years over two stints at the University of Miami, guiding the fortunes of the program's talented running backs. The year he retired, 2005, four of his former players led their teams in rushing. "Everyone always asks, `Who's the best?'," Soldinger said this week from his home in Miami. "The most gifted physically is probably Willis [McGahee]. The most confident without a doubt is [Clinton] Portis. E.J. [Edgerrin James] by far is the best athlete." After James, Soldinger recruited Portis and Najeh Davenport, then Jarrett Payton, the son of the legendary Walter Payton, McGahee and finally Frank Gore.

THE RAVENS have the right approach going into tomorrow night's game against Indianapolis. Unlike the NFL, television networks and all the other major media outlets, the Ravens aren't caught up in the hoopla about Colts quarterback Peyton Manning and three possible 1,000-yard receivers. The Ravens have to find an Edge, as in Edgerrin James, the Colts' star running back. Manning gets all the hype, and receivers Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne and Brandon Stokley get all the highlight clips, but this offense revolves around James.

This promises to be the best day of the NFL season, pre-playoffs, and not just because of the "weather" games. December's stretch run begins to unfold today. Even better, Week 14 features four tantalizing matchups that will help set the pecking order for the postseason. The New England Patriots can achieve the earliest clinching of the AFC East title in 12 years by beating the Miami Dolphins. The Ravens can take a major step toward returning to the playoffs by beating the Cincinnati Bengals.

MIAMI - The NFL couldn't have scripted a better contrast in quarterbacks. When the Indianapolis Colts' Peyton Manning and the Miami Dolphins' Jay Fiedler lead their teams into Pro Player Stadium at 12:30 today in the opening game of the 2000 playoffs, they will do so coming from vastly different football backgrounds. Manning played his college ball in front of 100,000 fans every game at the University of Tennessee, where he was on national television regularly and a virtual household name even before entering the NFL. Fiedler played for Dartmouth, where he was lucky if he played in front of a total of 100,000 home fans for an entire season.

Franchise building can be among the great joys of fantasy sports. The chatter around fantasy football or baseball tends to focus on whom to draft this season, whom to start this week and whom to acquire for this stretch drive. But today, I'm taking the long view. We're going to talk about the Tao of the keeper list. It's Week 12 of your fantasy football season. It's pretty clear which teams are playoff contenders and which aren't. If your league has a trading deadline, it may well be this week.

PHILADELPHIA - The closets will be creaking now. Skeletons of playoffs past are about to materialize in the countdown to the Super Bowl, and that means a nervous week in Pittsburgh for Steelers coach Bill Cowher and in Philadelphia for Eagles coach Andy Reid. The NFL's final four has lots of tradition, a heavy dose of defense and a delicious matchup of mobile quarterbacks. What it also brings is the pressure of past failures, a theme that is certain to haunt championship week. Reid enters his third straight NFC championship game at home with unqualified expectations.

INDIANAPOLIS - How's this for a switch? It's up to the Ravens' offense to win tonight's game. No, really. This is yet another must-win game, and the Ravens don't have much of a chance to beat the Colts, no matter what miracles the often-miraculous defense pulls off at the RCA Dome, unless the offense goes above and beyond its norm. Not a promising prospect, based on a season's body of work and on the current state of Jamal Lewis' ankle. On the other hand, the offense hasn't been so bad in recent weeks.
