1 Patriots play keep-away. New England controls the ball offensively, ranking second in the NFL in time of possession (35:56). If the Ravens' defense can't stop the Patriots on third down, Joe Flacco will be a spectator at Gillette Stadium. 2 Jump balls to Randy Moss. Everyone knows how the Ravens struggled against San Diego's big receivers. The challenge doesn't get any tougher than Moss, a 6-foot-4 playmaker who has 26 receptions this season (the most he has ever had after three games)

In response to an attendance downturn at recent NCAA men's lacrosse championship weekends, the organization is now open to allowing non-NFL stadiums to serve as hosts in upcoming years. The development comes on the heels of three consecutive years of reduced attendance for Championship Weekend. Attendance at May's Division I semifinals (28,444) and final (28,224) at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia was the lowest since the final four began rotating between M&T Bank Stadium, Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., and Lincoln Financial Field in 2003.

Maybe the fans were on to something. One of the smallest crowds since the NCAA moved the Final Four to professional venues watched a pair of blowouts in the NCAA tournament semifinals at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., Saturday. In the first semifinal, No. 2 seed and reigning national champion Syracuse thumped No. 3 seed Duke, 17-7. In the second semifinal, No. 5 seed Cornell stunned No. 1 seed Virginia, 15-6. The Orange (15-2) will meet the Big Red (13-3) on Monday at 1 p.m. in the first All-New York championship final since 1988 when Syracuse defeated Cornell, 13-8.

The NCAA is expected to announce tonight that its men's lacrosse tournament championship weekend is headed back to Baltimore and eventually will land for the first time in New England. Sources close to the NCAA men's lacrosse committee and its championship and competition committee said the NCAA will return the sport's premier stage to M&T Bank Stadium in 2007. Then, it will shift the annual Memorial Day weekend event in 2008 to Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass., the home of the New England Patriots.

In the end, the NCAA decided to recognize a familiar, successful stage for the best teams in men's lacrosse, and to take the sport's main event into another unexplored region. Last night, as expected, the NCAA announced its men's lacrosse championships would return to Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium in 2007 before moving to New England for the first time in 2008, when the annual Memorial Day weekend games will be played at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass. Jon Hind, the chairman of the men's lacrosse committee, said there were two reasons the NCAA deviated from its recent practice of committing to one city for two-year blocks.

Well, it's game day. The hype is over, thank goodness, and now all that's left is getting to Gillette Stadium. That, in and of itself, can be an adventure. Route 1 is the only road with access to the New England Patriots' home, and the traffic backups here are legendary. About 2 1/2 miles from the stadium, you start seeing signs for parking - at $60 a vehicle. And those are the cheap lots. I had to use one of those parking lots one year when I was covering a playoff game and didn't have a parking pass.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Michael Gvozden had little to say. And no one could blame him. The normally chatty sophomore goalkeeper for the No. 5 seed Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team had just made 20 saves in a 13-10 loss to No. 3 Syracuse in the NCAA tournament final at Gillette Stadium, and he might have been a little tired of getting peppered with shots -- and questions. But as has been his habit since he was anointed the Blue Jays' starter at the beginning of the season, Gvozden declined to lean on excuses.

Ahmaad Simmons and Jamar Peete may not have known it at the time, but they had a lot in common. Both grew up in Baltimore and had dreamed of playing football at the college level. Both were natural athletes who were handed lacrosse sticks early in high school because of their God-given ability. A few years into their lacrosse careers, both had the idea of popularizing the sport among inner city youth. But the cross-town high school rivals, Simmons of Baltimore City College and Peete of Walbrook, never got along.

Flushed with Sunday's victory and with many off work for Monday's holiday, Ravens fans have started planning their next offensive: Foxborough or bust. "The quest begins to find tickets," said Ryan Langhauser, 25, of Ellicott City, who hopes to follow the Ravens to the AFC championship game against the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Mass., on Sunday. Not to mention plane flights, train tickets, charter bus seats and hotel rooms. Tickets to the game at Gillette Stadium were going for as low as $181 for nosebleed seats and approaching $3,000 for those in lower sideline sections on Stubhub.com, one of the secondary markets that fans generally will be using.

The forecast for tonight's AFC showdown between the New York Jets and New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium calls for a 30 percent chance of precipitation, and it certainly will be cold enough for flurries. Regardless, Jets Coach Rex Ryan said he believes his team has already been buried beneath a full-fledged snow job. Ryan said he thinks the Patriots weren't overflowing with sincerity last week when they repeatedly referred to the Jets as a "great team. " It sounded respectful enough, but the way Ryan sees it, New England Coach Bill Belichick and his players were taking a tongue-in-cheek swipe at the Jets, who share an NFL-best 9-2 record with them.

I was brought up to be modest and self-effacing, a team player who doesn't toot his own horn. And so it's with great reluctance that I point out that only one person on the "NFL Picks" page of The Baltimore Sun had the Ravens beating the New England Patriots last week, and that person was - oh, look, he's actually blushing - me. None of the vaunted Ravens Insider guys picked the Ravens to advance in the playoffs, and that includes Mr. Football himself,...
