GAME PLAN: The Ravens regressed offensively despite a concerted effort to spread the football around in the passing game. Trailing on the scoreboard and dealing with frequent pass-protection breakdowns, their reaction was to throw more instead of trying to pound the football on the ground. With Joe Flacco under duress, Gary Kubiak was unable to execute his strategy. A litany of failures on third down - they went 1-for-11 for a 9-percent conversion rate - prevented drives from getting untracked.

A bill to boost Maryland's film production tax credit cleared the Senate Monday night. The measure, approved 45 to 1, authorizes $18.5 million in tax credits the state may award in the next fiscal year for movie and television productions. The credit had been increased this year from $7.5 million to $25 million, but was set to return to the lower level next year, according to the Department of Legislative Services. Supporters have argued that without more tax credits, the state could lose lucrative projects like the Netflix series "House of Cards," which has filmed much of its first two seasons at sites in Harford County and Baltimore, including renting space in the Baltimore Sun building.

GAME PLAN: Gary Kubiak constructed a strategy that heavily involved veteran wide receiver Steve Smith as he was targeted 10 times against his former team. The Ravens trust Smith in every situation: short, intermediate and deep. It was a balanced approach with a few more deep shots than usual. The Ravens ran the football 30 times for 127 yards and two touchdowns, with 31 passes for 327 yards and three touchdowns. Although it was primarily Smith's day to be featured, quarterback Joe Flacco distributed the football to eight different targets.

Writing at Vanity Fair , James Wolcott mourns the passing of the Boston Phoenix , including a memorable appreciation of the copy editor's craft by Al Giordano:  Copy editors were the heart and soul of the  Phoenix  experience, and I've long since thought that separating the two kinds of editing was at the core of the paper's genius. Let me explain: A story editor checks your facts and challenges you on them, and you debate with him or her and fuss over the content and substance of your story.

One can almost guarantee that, if a movie gets very good reviews, it will not be shown at either of the local multiplexes. Granted, these films do not appear to be the heavy money makers that sex and violence produce and making a profit is of course the reason these theaters are in business. I'm wondering, though, if it wouldn't be possible for these multiplexes to dedicate just one of their 14 theatres to these "indie" films; and if necessary, perhaps Howard County could subsidize them.

KJ Mohr has programmed film festivals around the country for years. But it at started, she said, "for very selfish reasons. " "I devoured all the foreign videos from my public library, but I knew there was a lot of independently produced film out there that I did not have access to, " said Mohr, 38. "And the only way to get my hands on it was to organize public screenings. For years, Mohr, who was born in Ripon, Wisc., and now lives in Highlandtown, has worked with various LGBT film festivals.

Baltimore Sun reporter Aaron Wilson looks back at the Ravens' game each week and looks ahead to their next opponent. GAME PLAN: Instead of airing it out and employing a no-huddle offense the way they did frequently in ineffective fashion during a loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, the Ravens scrapped the hurry-up approach and adopted a balanced, gritty approach. There were just a dozen shotgun snaps out of 65 offensive plays, zero no-huddle plays. They ran the football downhill, gaining 157 rushing yards on 36 runs to wear out a visibly tired Pittsburgh Steelers defense.

This Ray Rice incident has been a debacle. NFL management denies seeing the film of Mr. Rice striking his now wife in the elevator. Yet receipt of the video was apparently confirmed by an NFL employee. It is interesting how the NFL and the Ravens violated a basic principle of workplace discipline. It's called double jeopardy. Double jeopardy occurs when an employee has been disciplined for an infraction and then a few months later the management decides the disciplinary action was not severe enough and enacts a more severe penalty.

Big-bucks movies -- "Sister Act," "Ghost," "Flashdance," "Dirty Dancing," to name a few -- get turned into stage musicals with some frequency. Indie films form a smaller screen-to-boards subset. Of these, "Once," based on the minuscule-budget, shot-in-17-days Irish film written and directed by John Carney, may be the most distinctive. With its eight Tony Awards in 2012, including best music, "Once" continues to win fans and strong reviews on the road. The national touring production, which arrives Tuesday to open the Hippodrome Theatre 's Broadway Across America season, launched a year ago and will keep traveling at least through next summer.

As hundreds walked through Baltimore on Thursday to protest a police shooting in Missouri, uniformed officers were recording their every move. The decision by the Baltimore Police Department to record the march raised questions about how the tapes would be used and why authorities had chosen to record the event. Participants said they saw as many as a dozen officers shadowing the crowds and filming them, almost like a documentary crew, as the protesters walked to the Inner Harbor or spoke with officers.

The long relationship between HBO and David Simon will continue with the Baltimore filmmaker co-writing and producing "Show Me a Hero," a six-hour miniseries, for the premium cable channel. Based on the non-fiction book of the same title by Lisa Belkin, the series that explores race relations in the 1980s and '90s in Yonkers, N.Y.,  will star Oscar Isaac and Catherine Keener. Simon said in an email to The Sun that the miniseries will be filmed in Yonkers, because that's where the real-life events it covers took place.

A man hangs from a rope connected to the beam of a barn, his feet smashing through a wooden crate so he looks like he's cut off at the knees. His wife explains that when he was angered or annoyed, he would go to that spot, get up on a bucket, put a noose around his neck and threaten suicide. On the fatal day, she placed the bucket elsewhere, so he grabbed the crate. Is this a picture of accidental death, as she contends? Or is it suicide — or murder? This scene doesn't belong to a forensic TV series like "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
