In the end, the Cleveland Browns' successful challenge of an on-field ruling that wide receiver Jordan Norwood had fumbled a catch didn't amount to much as the Ravens won easily, 24-10, on Sunday. But the reversal - which turned the seven-yard gain in the second quarter into an incompletion - did cost cornerback Danny Gorrer the first forced fumble of his career and free safety Ed Reed his first recovered fumble of the season. During his weekly news conference Monday, coach John Harbaugh maintained that the initial ruling was the correct call.

COLLEGE PARK -  In two straight games, Maryland running back Brandon Ross has taken a short screen pass, maneuvered through traffic and outrun the defense for a long touchdown down the left sideline. Ross fumbled three times during the Terps' first two games and has shared playing time in recent weeks. But the 5-foot-10, 205-pound junior has made some big plays when called upon. Ross, who ran for 776 yards last year, had five catches for 50 yards against West Virginia on Sept.

In the midst of being tackled Sunday, Eagles running back Ronnie Brown tried to throw the ball away and fumbled. This will be the most idiotic thing you see on a NFL field this season now that Channing Crowder has retired .

Thank you, thank you, thank you for finally putting out a worthy and truthful account of the Ray Rice issue and its handling by the Ravens ( "The Ravens' story shifts," Sept. 23)! I am a domestic abuse survivor and I would really like to see that this situation could educate and really help victims, survivors and abusers. I was extremely hopeful when Ray Rice was handed a two-game suspension and when it was criticized by the public, many of whom do not even really know the whole story, know Ray Rice as the man and humanitarian he is or know anything about domestic violence.

As the pieces in the AFC playoff puzzle fell into place yesterday, the Ravens fell apart. In a game decided by their fumbles and dropped passes, the Ravens let a prime opportunity to make a move in the AFC postseason race slip through their fingers, stumbling early and often in a 37-25 loss to the New Orleans Saints before a sellout crowd at Ravens Stadium.After learning just before kickoff that the Pittsburgh Steelers had shockingly lost to...

Prior to losing a fumble on the Ravens' first possession of Sunday's 24-9 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Wildcard round, Ray Rice had gone 445 consecutive touches without losing the football. The three-time Pro Bowl running back hadn't lost a fumble since Dec. 11, 2011. So coughing up the ball twice Sunday was somewhat surprising. Rice owned up to the gaffes, but when pressed on whether he was trying to make a little more out of the play, he got a little defensive.

Ravens fans won’t soon forget Ray Rice’s fumble against the Steelers in the AFC Divisional Round. The loss can’t be blamed on Rice, but his fumble early in the third quarter was the turning point as the Steelers overcame a 14-point halftime deficit to beat the Ravens, 31-24, in a game the Ravens feel they gave away. The fumble, the first of three Ravens turnovers in the third quarter, led to the first of three second-half touchdowns for the Steelers. But the running back said Thursday that it didn’t take him long to forget it. “I have a short memory.

SAN DIEGO -- If the San Diego Chargers still intend to go to the playoffs, it appears they now will need tickets.On a night in which they had talked about starting a five-game winning streak, the Chargers went belly up to the Seattle Seahawks, 13-10, in overtime in front of a national television audience and 50,097 fans in San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium.In hindsight, it will be a game no more costly than the one the Chargers (5-7) lost in Dallas on a fake punt. But for now, it is their season.

"The Fumble."It never happened, according to Air Force coach Fisher DeBerry. It definitely happened, and cost his Midshipmen last season's game with the Falcons, said Navy coach George Chaump.A year later, the debate is raging and serving as a rallying cry for the Mids, who have lost 11 consecutive games to the Falcons.DeBerry, reluctant to revive the issue, said he recently reviewed tapes of last year's 18-16 victory in Colorado Springs, Colo., and was sure that the infamous fumble never occurred.

The Ravens might not have known much about Tim Jamison, but the Houston Texans defensive end made his presence known by sacking quarterback Joe Flacco twice in the Oct. 16 meeting between both teams. Jamison, who signed with Houston as an undrafted rookie in 2009, had the best game of his career against the Ravens, adding a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Right guard Marshal Yanda said the offensive line is cognizant of Jamison, who usually fills in for Antonio Smith. “They rotate some guys in there, and he's a good player,” Yanda said.

By the middle of the fourth quarter of Morgan State's 28-3 win over Bowie State at Hughes Stadium on Saturday, running back Herb Walker Jr. had gained 118 yards, marking the third straight game in which the team had a 100-yard rusher. But with 3:27 left, the redshirt sophomore was stripped of the football by Bulldogs junior linebacker Robert Burke, and redshirt junior outside linebacker Jonathan Harris pounced on the loose ball at the Bears' 41-yard line. Normally, that might have been the end of the day for Walker as he had nothing left to prove and there seemed to be no point in putting him back in at risk of injury with Morgan State holding a 14-3 advantage.

Most of the experiences I have had in the Patuxent High School auditorium I hope to lock away in my memory banks forever. Last Saturday's contentious Public Service Commission hearing on the Dominion Cove Point expansion won't be one of them. The real irony of the day was that most of the folks who attended the hearing, whether they were nearby residents wearing "No to Cove Point" stickers or union members who were wearing "Yes to Cove Point" stickers, were all there to advocate for the same thing - the health, safety, and financial security of their own families.

COLLEGE PARK - Injury-depleted, overmatched Maryland donned its bright red, “Pride 2.0” uniforms for its homecoming game Saturday, then tried to preserve some vestige of that same pride against No. 9 Clemson. Aided by three takeaways, Maryland remained within a touchdown of the heavily favored Tigers until a critical fourth-quarter miscue. Clemson pulled away for a 40-27 victory in front of an announced 48,134, the largest home crowd of the season, on a sunny, chilly day at Byrd Stadium.

On a night when Broadneck needed a win to help secure its spot in the Class 4A East playoffs, the host Bruins played the first half as if they were instead trying to impress a bowl committee. Broadneck scored the game's first 31 points, held No. 11 Arundel scoreless until early in the third quarter, and then survived a sloppy third quarter that included seven fumbles to earn a 37-18 win. "We came out and we were ready to go. The focus that we saw this week was phenomenal," Broadneck coach Rob Harris said.

The Ravens' recommitment to the running game during Sunday's 26-23 victory over the Miami Dolphins wasn't reflected in their 3.3 yards-per-carry average, the simplest way to measure rushing efficiency. But other numbers tell the story, starting with the 38 carries for Ravens running backs, a week after they got just nine in a loss to the Buffalo Bills. There were the nine plays, including two in the goal-line package, when the Ravens lined up rookie Rick Wagner as a sixth offensive lineman and 19 other plays when they used two tight ends.

PHILADELPHIA -- Chester Taylor was not being rude. He just did not have a whole lot to say yesterday after the Ravens' 15-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles that his fourth-quarter fumble played a role in. So instead of explaining how he lost the ball, Taylor excused himself from the conversation, leaving his teammates and coach to talk for him. "Anytime you turn the ball over, it's going to impact the game, particularly against an outstanding team,"...

Each week, Baltimore Sun blogger and reporter Matt Vensel will fire a few questions at a random Ravens rookie. This week it was nose tackle Brandon Williams, a third-round pick with an impressive set of pipes. MV: All of the players sang "Happy Birthday" to O.J. Brigance in the cafeteria last week. I heard you sing and you were pretty good, so I guess we'll start there. What was it like to serenade O.J. like that? BW: It was cool. I know how much he means to the team and to most of the veterans because they've known him the longest.

In the second quarter of St. Frances' football game Sunday against Friendship Collegiate at Byrd Stadium, the Panthers showed the value of the old adage “If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.” After the Panthers were forced to punt on their first drive of the quarter, Arizona-bound Jonathan Haden caught the ball and took off. As the Panthers brought him down, he lost the ball and Mike Bell recovered for St. Frances. Flags flew and both teams were penalized - the Panthers for a personal foul and the Knights for a block in the back.
