When the Detroit Lions meet the New Orleans Saints in the NFC wild-card playoff game Saturdaysome current and former Ravens staff members will be celebrating for Lions coach Jim Schwartz before the game even begins. It's not because the Lions will be making their first playoff appearance in almost a dozen years. But because Schwartz is a Baltimore native who learned a lot about the game as the Ravens quality control coach from 1995 through 1998. "He always had that strong work ethic," Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said.

On the subject of his brother's postgame tiff with Detroit coach Jim Schwartz, Ravens coach John Harbaugh drew a line in the sand Monday and, not surprisingly, sided with Jim Harbaugh, the 49ers coach. Jim Harbaugh and Schwartz made national news after Harbaugh's 49ers dealt the Lions their first loss of the season Sunday. In the traditional postgame handshake, Harbaugh obviously offended Schwartz with an over-zealous shake. Schwartz then chased Harbaugh toward the locker room and both men were kept apart.

Today is the Detroit Lions. The Ravens will make their only "Monday Night Football" appearance of the season in Week 15 against the Detroit Lions. The Lions are one of the toughest teams to project entering this season. In 2011, quarterback Matthew Stafford and the Lions passed their way to a 10-6 record before being outgunned by Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints in the playoffs.

For all of Sunday's surprises - the Raiders stunning the Bengals, the Chiefs shocking the Steelers, the Lions and the Browns in a 75-point shootout - there was one development NFL fans could see coming a mile away: The slow-motion collapse of the Broncos. Just like last season, the Chargers delivered the roundhouse that sent the Broncos to the canvas, this time claiming sole possession of the AFC West lead with a 32-3 thumping at Invesco Field. The Broncos might have looked virtually invincible last month when it got off to a 6-0 start and built a 3 1/2 -game division lead, capped with a win at San Diego.

When the Detroit Lions were looking for a head coach, they wanted someone who was highly analytical. They wanted someone who could develop a philosophy, devise strategies and bridge a gap between the players, coaches and administration. On Jan. 16, the Lions hired Jim Schwartz, 43. Back over at Schwartz's old high school in Baltimore, Mount St. Joseph, Schwartz's former algebra teacher, Dave Norton, thought Detroit had hired the right guy. "No, I didn't know if he would become a head football coach back then," said Norton, an assistant principal and baseball coach at the school for 35 years.

It's the story that won't die, the post-game Handshake from Hell that has turned into a PR nightmare for the NFL. The debate has raged all week: Who was the bigger jerk? Was it amped-up 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh for the hard handshake and back slap he delivered to Lions coach Jim Schwartz after San Francisco's big win over Detroit on Sunday? Or was it Schwartz for going Chernobyl and trying to get at Harbaugh — Ravens coach John Harbaugh's younger brother — when he should have just walked away and hit the showers.

Let's go with the obvious first: bye weeks agree with the Ravens. They've now won nine of their last 10 games when coming off a bye. That's a winning percentage up there with, oh, the Harlem Globetrotters vs. the Washington Generals. And in home games after a bye, the Ravens are 7-0 dating to 2002. Of course, let's admit this: that was a banged-up Houston Texans team the Ravens beat 29-14 Sunday. No, I take that back. The Texans were more than just banged-up. They were severely depleted.

From the start, Larry Collmus had a one-track mind. A race announcer, he would be. As a kid, he would watch the horses run at Timonium, then rush home to Ellicott City and re-create what he'd seen and heard. "Some people sing in the shower," said Sally LaHart, Collmus' sister. "Larry would call races in there. " In high school, Collmus amused friends by recollecting races that had been run the day before. "At lunch, we would hand Larry the morning paper and egg him on," said Jim Schwartz, a classmate at Mount St. Joseph.
