Fullback Vonta Leach has been a popular subject for interviews this week as his former employer, the Houston Texans, will pay a visit to his current employer, the Ravens, on Sunday. Outside linebacker Terrell Suggs was asked about having Leach in the locker room, and Suggs' reply could be interpreted as a compliment and a swipe - but not at Leach. “You've got to like Vonta's personality,” Suggs said. “As you can see, we have a lot of characters in this locker room. We all like to have fun. He came in and fit right in. As far as his play on the field, I think it speaks for itself.

One of the few areas in which the Ravens have been consistently good this season is in their red zone, where they usually send opponents back to the sideline with three points and their tails between their legs. The Ravens are second in the NFL in red-zone defense this season, allowing touchdowns just 26.3 percent of the time. At 22.2 percent, only the Kansas City Chiefs have been stingier inside their 20-yard line. Red-zone defense was one reason the Ravens were able to hang around with the Pittsburgh Steelers in Sunday's 19-16 loss.

When it comes to star power in NFL free agency in 2012, there might not be a more stacked position group than wide receiver. But much like the running back class, this year's bumper crop of free agent wide receivers will likely be thinned when some teams exercise their right to place the franchise tag on pending free agents. DeSean Jackson of the Philadelphia Eagles has already received the franchise tagm and the long list of other free agent wideouts who could get tagged includes Vincent Jackson of the San Diego Chargers, Wes Welker of the New England Patriots, Dwayne Bowe of the Kansas City Chiefs, Marques Colston of the New Orleans Saints, and Steve Johnson of the Buffalo Bills.

Jonathan Ogden played all the way during the Ravens' 30-13 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday on an injured knee, but who could tell? Ogden did not allow a sack, kept outside linebacker Joey Porter (only three tackles) in check and helped pave the way for a 172-yard rushing effort. "It didn't feel great," Ogden said. "I didn't feel like I was close to 100 percent. It's still sore, but sometimes you've got to go with what ails you in this game. I thought I was able to give them something, and I gave them enough for us to get the win. " And enough to stabilize an offensive line that looked to be in shambles a week earlier when he was not in the lineup.

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.

If this was the Ravens' statement game, it was punctuated with a major question mark. From the long touchdown pass that never was to the game-winning kickoff return that never should have been, the 17-10 loss to the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs at M&T Bank Stadium yesterday left the Ravens scratching their heads and falling a few rungs below the upper echelon of the league. This week's bye may not be enough time for the Ravens to dissect their mistakes, which included four turnovers, four untimely penalties and one eyebrow-raising coaching decision.

The news that Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher had died in a murder-suicide hit Ravens defensive lineman Arthur Jones particularly hard. Belcher was a childhood friend and former wrestling teammate of Jones, who grew up in upstate New York. Highly upset about the tragedy, Jones sent the following text to The Baltimore Sun regarding his memories of Belcher. "We wrestled every year on the same New York state team together since middle school through high school," Jones wrote.

It's not surprising that the Ravens are 10 1/2 -point favorites over the Kansas City Chiefs, the largest point spread in their favor for a season opener in the team's 14-year history. Fresh off a 2-14 season, the Chiefs have endured a rocky summer, firing their offensive coordinator a week ago and watching starting quarterback Matt Cassel injure his left knee Aug. 29. The Ravens, meanwhile, have rolled through a perfect preseason and appear ready to take that next step - to the Super Bowl.

Both coach John Harbaugh and players like center Matt Birk and left tackle Bryant McKinnie agreed that Joe Flacco has been on the receiving end of too many hits lately. The only one who disagrees is the Ravens quarterback himself. Asked if he concurred with Harbaugh's assessment on Monday, Flacco replied, “No, I'm still a young guy, and that's part of playing quarterback, getting hit every now and then. Hey, if you've got to deal with it every now and then, that's what you have to deal with.
