The Ravens didn't have too much to feel good about after last week's preseason loss to the Eagles, but they bounced back with an improved effort tonight against the Chiefs. The third-stringers pulled off the comeback win, but there were signs of progress from the important guys. Here is what is on my mind after the 31-13 win. 1. I was surprised that Joe Flacco played into the third quarter, but it was clear the Ravens wanted to get some things ironed out on offense before taking him out. Flacco was erratic by his standards, completing just 12 of his 24 passes, and he was out of sync with Anquan Boldin, in particular.

There's a pretty solid chance that the Ravens' scouting report on the Indianapolis Colts' offense includes a few bolded reminders about how dangerous wide receiver T.Y. Hilton can be as a deep threat. Hilton is one of the fastest wide receivers in the NFL, having run the 40-yard dash in 4.34 seconds. “We just can't let him take the top off the defense,” Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees said. Hilton emerged last season as a pivotal figure in the Colts' offense, catching a career-high 82 passes for 1,083 yards and six touchdowns.

Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher shot his girlfriend -- the mother of his 3-month old daughter -- multiple times Saturday morning, drove about five miles from their home to the team's practice facility near Arrowhead Stadium and killed himself in front of Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel and general manager Scott Pioli, Kansas City police say. Belcher, 25, and his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, 22, had been arguing when Belcher shot her just...

For the first time since the beginning of last season, tight ends Dennis Pitta and Ed Dickson finished a game with a combined zero catches in last Thursday's 23-16 win against the Cleveland Browns. Chances are that scenario won't play out again Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs, who have surrendered a touchdown to tight ends in three of four games this season. Tony Gonzalez caught five passes for 53 yards and one score in the Atlanta Falcons' 40-24 rout, Scott Chandler grabbed two balls for 53 yards and a touchdown in the Buffalo Bills' 35-17 demolition, and Jimmy Graham finished with four receptions for 16 yards and a score in the New Orleans Saints' 27-24 overtime loss.

In an obituary for Elijah Pitts in July 10 editions, the Associated Press reported erroneously that he became the first player to rush for a touchdown in the first Super Bowl. Although Pitts scored two rushing touchdowns in Green Bay's 35-10 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs, the first rushing touchdown was scored by Jim Taylor of the Packers.The Sun regrets the errors.Pub Date: 7/14/98

Which of the Ravens' 11 wins has been the most important? You could build a case for the opener in Tampa, which set the tone for the season; the late comeback in Cleveland in Week 3, which crystallized the attitude change under Steve McNair; or the recent throttling of the Kansas City Chiefs, which was so impressive. But my money is on the 27-0 destruction of the Pittsburgh Steelers just after Thanksgiving. Ravens@Steelers Tomorrow, 1 p.m., Ch. 13, 1090 AM, 97.9 FM Line: Steelers by 3

When I heard about the deadly incident of domestic violence involving the Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, my first thought was what a tragedy ("Kansas City Chiefs player Jovan Belcher kills girlfriend, himself," Dec. 1). That thought quickly led me to wonder if the NFL would now start talking about domestic violence. But it doesn't look good so far. On ESPN's NFL "Sunday Countdown," all the talk was about remembering what a great guy and player Belcher was. Only Tom Jackson made the point that he was more concerned about the girlfriend and the child left behind than about Belcher, who was a murderer.

Former Maryland linebacker Darin Drakeford signed with the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday night, the team announced. The Falcons cut kicker Sergio Castillo to create a roster spot for Drakeford. Drakeford previously tried out for the New York Jets this year. After going undrafted last year, Drakeford had practice squad stints with the Kansas City Chiefs, New York Giants and Indianapolis Colts last year. At Maryland, Drakeford recorded 171 tackles, 19 for losses, eight sacks, seven forced fumbles and one interception. He played in high school at Thedore Roosevelt High in Washington.

When the Ravens signed veteran cornerbacks Aaron Ross and Dominique Franks last week after successful minicamp tryouts for both, it was viewed as even more unlikely that they'd make a serious run at Pro Bowl cornerback Brandon Flowers who had surprisingly been released by the Kansas City Chiefs. Looking to upgrade their cornerback depth, the Ravens had some conversations about adding Flowers, but ultimately others teams coveted the 28-year-old more. One of those teams, the San Diego Chargers, have agreed today to a one-year deal with Flowers, according to multiple reports.

Veteran cornerback Aaron Ross, who won two Super Bowls with the New York Giants but has had trouble staying healthy, said on Twitter that he's heading to Baltimore to participate in the Ravens' mandatory minicamp this week. According to a source, the Ravens haven't officially signed the free agent cornerback. Ross is taking part in the minicamp on a tryout basis, per a source. Veteran cornerback  Drayton Florence told The Sun's Aaron Wilson that he will also have a tryout for the team this week as the Ravens continue to look to upgrade their cornerback depth.

The NFL's annual free-agency spending spree officially gets underway Tuesday, with the Ravens in a slightly different position than in the recent past. An elevated salary cap, coupled with a few cost-saving moves earlier this offseason, has left the Ravens with nearly $25 million of cap space. General manager Ozzie Newsome, who traditionally exercises discipline, restraint and patience at this time of year, already has vowed to explore every way of improving a team that missed the playoffs last season for the first time since 2007.

Before day two of the first annual NFL Pro Bowl Draft began tonight, Ravens kicker Justin Tucker took to his Twitter account to campaign for one of the game's captains, Deion Sanders, to take him with his first selection. Tucker had to wait a little longer than that, but he was ultimately drafted by Sanders' team, which will oppose fellow Hall of Famer Jerry Rice's squad Sunday night at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii. Tucker joins his other two Pro Bowl teammates - guard Marshal Yanda and rush linebacker Terrell Suggs - on Sanders' team, which is being captained by Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles and Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt.

Some of the Ravens either didn't know or didn't care about all that needed to happen - at least not at that moment - for them to make the playoffs. A 34-point loss to one of your biggest rivals has a way of making everything else seem insignificant. Other players asked team officials or reporters about the various scenarios before concluding that the only thing that really mattered was beating the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. By the time the Ravens reported to the team facility Monday morning for meetings and film review, their path to the playoffs had been dissected and discussed.

When the Ravens signed Elvis Dumervil in the offseason, the expectation was that he and fellow outside linebacker Terrell Suggs would team up to become one of the best pass-rushing tandems in the league. Considering that Suggs was coming off an injury-marred 2012 season in which he had just two sacks and also that Dumervil was being dropped into a new defensive system, those immediate expectations may have seemed a little lofty. But after watching them harass quarterbacks throughout training camp and into the preseason, it was clear to most that the Ravens had something special at the outside linebacker position.

RAVENS PASSING GAME: Joe Flacco has gone two games without an interception after having been picked off six times the previous two games. However, he's still struggling to get the Ravens' offense off to a fast start, and into the end zone. The Ravens have one first-quarter touchdown this season, and only 52.2 percent of their red-zone trips have resulted in touchdowns. The Ravens went heavy with the no-huddle and three-receiver sets against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and Flacco got into a good rhythm.
