As an undrafted rookie, Nigel Carr is looking to make an impression with the Ravens coaching staff in any way possible, but he may have taken the wrong route with special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg. That's because at the start of Tuesday's practice at the team's training facility in Owings Mills, the inside linebacker rushed from the left side of the defensive line and swooped in to block a punt attempt by Sam Koch. Immediately afterward, Rosburg grabbed Carr and spoke to him for an extended period of time.

The last time Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco faced a Mike Pettine-led defense, he had arguably the worst game of his career . Pettine, a former Ravens assistant, was Buffalo's defensive coordinator last year, when his Bills defense had five interceptions in a 23-20 victory. Pettine, now the Browns head coach, said it wouldn't make sense to follow that day's game plan Sunday. “It's not applicable, just because it's a different [offensive] coordinator,” he said. “The system is completely different.

Pernell McPhee, who has started at defensive end in both of the Ravens' first two preseason games, and special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg, are absent from the team's practice at Stevenson University's Mustang Stadium in Owings Mills. McPhee was sidelined for a good deal of the offseason and a brief portion of training camp after undergoing minor knee surgery, but he was not reported to be dealing with an injury after Friday night's 27-12 loss to the Detroit Lions. Rosburg is attending to personal matters after the death of his mother, according to a team spokesman.

Thinking ahead isn't an option for an undrafted free agent in training camp, especially one competing with a veteran for a team's sole punting job. Ravens undrafted rookie punter Richie Leone began working toward an NFL punting job in college. He kicked and played quarterback at Roswell High in Georgia, and while at the University of Houston began a pro-style training regimen under a former NFL special teams coach. So if he can't unseat incumbent punter Sam Koch during the preseason, Leone will have an even more refined left foot to take elsewhere in search of an NFL role.

Despite being a rookie, Justin Tucker ranks third in the NFL in field-goal percentage (93.5) and seventh in points (127). It wasn't enough, however, for the Ravens kicker to earn a Pro Bowl invitation. The Cleveland Browns' Phil Dawson, who leads the league in field-goal percentage (96.6), got was selected as the AFC's kicker. Ravens special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg said Tucker could become a regular Pro Bowler if he maintains his consistency and productivity. “I really don't know how the Pro Bowl voting goes.

Justin Tucker wrapped up his career at the University of Texas ranked third all-time in field-goal accuracy with an 83.3 conversion rate (40-of-48). He's having an even better time with the Ravens. The rookie kicker has connected on 93.2 percent (96-of-103) of his kicks in practices this preseason. Add his 5-of-5 performance in three exhibitions, and Tucker's success rates rises slightly to 93.5 percent. Tucker, who took all the field goals, extra points and kickoffs in the team's 48-17 rout of the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday night, said he's never had the kind of preseason that he's having now under the watchful eyes of coach John Harbaugh, special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg and kicking consultant Randy Brown.

Offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell and special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg probably exhaled mightily after rookie kicker Justin Tucker nailed a 47-yard field goal to give the Ravens a 38-35 win against the Denver Broncos in double overtime Saturday night, but for different reasons. Caldwell didn't have to call another offensive play against a Broncos defense that had finished the regular season ranked second in yards allowed and fourth in points surrendered. But Caldwell called a largely masterful game against Denver.

Prior to his weekly news conference at the Ravens' training facility in Owings Mills, coach John Harbaugh and several other team executives attended the funeral mass of Patricia Breslin Modell, the late wife of former Ravens and Browns owner Art Modell who died Wednesday at the age of 80. “It was just a beautiful, beautiful ceremony down at the basilica,” said Harbaugh, who was nattily attired in a black suit. “David and John [Modell] did an incredible job with the eulogies, and it kind of makes you remember how important family is. I think the Ravens are a family, Raven nation, the fans, everybody, our families, and the Modells are just a great family.

After going perfect in the first two days of training camp, kickers Billy Cundiff and Justin Tucker found a little separation on Saturday at the Ravens' practice facility in Owings Mills. Cundiff missed a 48-yard field-goal attempt towards the end of the session, pushing the kick wide left of the goalposts. It was the only blemish for Cundiff, who had connected on attempts of 20, 32, 41, 51 and 54 yards earlier in the day. Tucker, an undrafted rookie, went 7-of-7, converting attempts of 20, 30, 40, 41, 45, 51 and 54 yards.

Under the watchful eyes of Ravens coach John Harbaugh and special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg, rookie kicker Justin Tucker continued to put a little distance between himself and incumbent Billy Cundiff. Tucker succeeded on all seven of his field-goal attempts Wednesday, including two simulated game-winners in overtime and a 55-yarder earlier in the afternoon. He has converted 35-of-37 tries thus far. Cundiff went 4-of-5, with his lone miss coming from 41 yards. He has gone 29-of-35 in five days of camp.

Setting the scene: Ravens players took the field just before 8:30 a.m., wearing shorts and shells. The noncontact workout ended around 11:30 a.m. It was a relatively quiet and uneventful practice, with the players undoubtedly appreciating the overcast skies and mild temperatures. Not just a punter: The Ravens have long considered Sam Koch one of the best athletes on the team, and he showed Friday that there was more in his repertoire than just punting. With Justin Tucker getting the day off, Koch and rookie punter Richie Leone were given opportunities to kick field goals.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh spent his Sunday afternoon at Madison Square Garden , taking in the Elite Eight matchup between Michigan State and Connecticut . The Huskies eventually won, 60-54. That wasn't necessarily surprising as Harbaugh is a big college basketball fan. What was a surprise -- at least to one member of his sports family -- was the team he was seemingly supporting. Harbaugh, seated next to Ravens assistant head coach and special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg , was wearing a Michigan State hat and watched the game from a section that included former Spartans standouts Magic Johnson and Mateen Cleaves . Harbaugh was shown several times by the CBS cameras during the game.

This would have sounded crazy a month ago, but as of this morning, the Ravens are two wins away from their third straight AFC North title. They have turned the season around because Joe Flacco has found his groove, his supporting cast has picked up its play and the Ravens remembered how to win close games. But where would the Ravens be right now without the trusty right leg of young kicker Justin Tucker? Well, they would be on the outside looking in when it comes to the playoff picture in the AFC. Instead, they are 8-6 and remain on the postseason path after yet another bust-out-the-Rolaids Ravens victory.

For nearly an hour, Justin Tucker's right foot boomed footballs into the warm Texas air. He split the uprights from one distance, then marched back 5 yards and did it again, moving around the field with purpose and poise. He blasted kickoffs into the end zone and bounced onside kicks toward the sideline. Every swing of Tucker's right leg was done at full speed and with maximum effort. Jerry Rosburg spotted a few flaws that would need to be fixed, but the Ravens assistant head coach and special teams coordinator loved how the ball came off Tucker's foot with such authority and accuracy, rarely veering right or hooking left.

Early in the season, before sweater weather arrived, fans could head to the restrooms when it was time for Ravens kicker Justin Tucker to kickoff. Heck, opposing kick returners probably could have joined them. In the first six games of the season, the second-year kicker boomed touchbacks on 25 of his 32 kickoffs, meaning the kick coverage team, which was only needed to make about one tackle a game, could have lined up in lawn chairs. Tucker had four games with at least five touchbacks, including the season opener in Denver, when warm temperatures and thin air allowed him to kick touchbacks on all six of his kickoffs.

Ravens kicker Justin Tucker doesn't miss very often, regardless of his surroundings. He has made 16 straight field goals, one of the longest active streaks in the NFL, and he has made 48 of his 53 career field-goal attempts in the regular season. His 46-yard field goal at M&T Bank Stadium last Sunday was the fifth game-winner of his career. He has missed just three kicks on his home turf in two seasons. But as good as he has been kicking on synthetic surfaces, he has been even better on grass.

Jacoby Jones may have sat out Wednesday's practice because of an ankle injury, but the Ravens wide receiver said there's no question that he will be available for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. “I'm playing,” Jones said before Thursday's session. “I'll be on the field.” Jones, the offense's next wideout option after starters Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith, said his ankle injury was not serious. “Just a bruise,” he said. “When you get something like that, there's just a little soreness that you need to get out. I'm ready to roll though.” The Ravens could lessen Jones' workload by reducing his role on returns.

Looking to fill their head-coaching vacancy, the Chicago Bears had interest in Ravens' assistant head coach and special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg. However, the talks between the two sides never went beyond the preliminary stages, according to team sources. Rosburg, 57, never had a formal, in-depth interview and didn't aggressive ly pursue the opening as he was busy helping the Ravens prepare for their playoff run. The Chicago Tribune first reported today that the Bears  spoke to  Rosburg before hiring Marc Trestman, the former coach of the Montreal Alouettes in the Canadian Football League.

As Ravens reserve safety Anthony Levine sprinted down the field, his eyes locked onto Pittsburgh Steelers return man Emmanuel Sanders. At the time, he didn't know about the positioning of the rest of the Ravens' coverage team or what kind of contact kicker Justin Tucker had made with the ball. All he knew was that Sanders had fielded a bouncing ball 7 yards deep in the end zone and had decided to bring it out. "We were running down, and my mind says, 'I'm going to make this tackle so we would get this stop, and let's go win this game,'" Levine said.

It has never been something that the Ravens have had to worry about. From 2006 through 2012, Sam Koch only had two of his 558 punts blocked. However, what hadn't happened since 2006 has now occurred twice in the past six weeks, making punt protection a point of emphasis heading into Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field. Ravens assistant head coach and special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg said that the team has addressed the miscommunication that resulted in Koch getting his punt blocked by tight end Ryan Taylor in the second quarter of the Ravens' 19-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers last Sunday.
