Baltimore Sun reporters, columnists and editors give their thoughts on the Ravens ' game against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 10 of the NFL season. Jeff Zrebiec, reporter: This win does nothing but keep the Ravens' playoff hopes alive. It doesn't send a message to the rest of the NFL that the Ravens are about to go on a playoff run. It doesn't make you feel any better about their poor running game or their struggling offense as a whole. It doesn't give you confidence that they are going to go into Chicago and beat a Bears team that has some problems of its own. But it does help them stay afloat in the AFC playoff picture.

I have a lot of confidence in my jumping ability."He then out-jumped four Redskins in the end zone to catch Troy Aikman's pass.A first-round draft pick from Tennessee, Harper is noted as a good jumper.

Tonight's "American Idol" in Baton Rouge was the best episode thus far. We actually got to see more authentic talent than squabbles between the lady judges and misfits. It was awesome.  In the very beginning, we were introduced to Miss Baton Rouge herself, Megan Miller, who opted to postpone surgery on her leg to not miss her audition. Megan did us all a huge favor, siding with singing versus going under the knife. "I would let my leg fall off before I missed this audition," Megan said.

Everything was proceeding nicely Sunday until the final minute of the Bills-Patriots catastrophe. Washington, Houston and Denver all had covered. New England, the week's fourth major pick, didn't appear likely to do so until a miracle happened with less than a minute left.The Patriots, favored by four points, had just scored to regain the lead at 21-18, only to see Adam Vinatieri miss the extra point by a mile to the left. Wonderful!But Jim Kelly wasn't through. The Buffalo quarterback put up a pass in the right flat that defensive end Willie McGinest intercepted and returned 46 yards for a touchdown, at which point referee Dick Hantak became the most confused person in the stadium.

When Ray Rice caught the ball and looked upfield, his challenge - and the Ravens' chances of pulling out a victory over the San Diego Chargers - seemed pretty close to hopeless. There were defenders rushing toward Rice and about 20 yards that he still needed to cover if he was going to get a first down. Running down the sideline, Rice made two defenders miss and then outran a couple of more as he cut across the field. He contemplated taking it all the way to the opposite sideline before ultimately deciding to keep inching forward.

Wa-aay behind in the polls, the Republican who's trying to unseat Democrat Sen. Barbara Mikulski has resorted to a most unusual Hail Mary pass. Dr. Eric Wargotz has posted a video of his three kids — Jacob, 13; Samuel, 11; and Leila, 9 — singing a campaign rap song. ( See it on YouTube under "Wargotz-Mikulski Rap. " ) Here's a snippet: "Yo, what's up now, my brothers and sisters / Let me tell you 'bout a very smart mister / His name is Eric Wargotz and he's running for Senate / U.S., that is. And he's in it to win it. " Maybe this is part of that hip-hop makeover RNC chief and former Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael Steele vowed to bring the GOP. It is certainly, as Steele promised, "off the hook.

The Ravens were on the brink of a historic upset. Instead, they had to deal with one of the most heartbreaking defeats in their history. Hurting themselves in the fourth quarter with questionable decision-making, the Ravens fell short in a painful 27-24 loss to the unbeaten New England Patriots last night at a blustery M&T Bank Stadium. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady capitalized on the Ravens' mistakes, throwing an 8-yard touchdown to Jabar Gaffney with 44 seconds remaining.
