How the Ravens plan to attack Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is the dominant storyline surrounding Saturday's AFC Divisional playoff contest. But another concern revolves around Knowshon Moreno. The 5-foot-11, 200-pound running back gashed the defense for 118 yards and one touchdown on 22 carries in the Ravens' 34-17 loss to Denver on Dec. 16. Moreno became the fourth opponent to rush for more than 100 yards against the defense in the regular season, and several members of the run unit said they are looking forward to getting another crack at him. “It hurt,” outside linebacker Albert McClellan said.

That the Denver Broncos named Ronnie Hillman as their starting running back over Knowshon Moreno and rookie Montee Ball for Thursday night's game against the Ravens was a big deal to fantasy football aficionados. But Baltimore defensive coordinator Dean Pees didn't know and, with all due respect to the three main candidates to carry the ball for the Broncos, Pees didn't really seem to care when asked about it Monday. “It really doesn't matter. You have to prepare for all three of them,” he said.

If there's anything running back Knowshon Moreno has learned from playing football, it's the value of patience. He redshirted his freshman year at Georgia despite being among the top 10 prep running backs in the country. He shared carries with Willis McGahee in 2011 until suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in mid-November that forced the Denver Broncos to shelve him for the remainder of the season. And he was deactivated for eight straight games this year after losing a fumble in a Week 2 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

INDIANAPOLIS - A 78-inch wingspan and a rehabilitated right lower leg were prominent on Jaimie Thomas' resume when the former Maryland left guard reported to the NFL scouting combine this week. After four weeks of training in Atlanta, Thomas was finally ready for the next step in his hoped-for transition to the NFL. "Right now it's pretty intense," Thomas said. "It's basically a job interview. My job is to get my body in the best physical shape I can and perform the best I can." Thomas is joined at the combine by center Edwin Williams, linebacker Moise Fokou, cornerback Kevin Barnes and wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey from Maryland.

Ravens run offense vs. Broncos run defense: Ray Rice is expected to return to the starting lineup after being limited last Sunday with a bruised right knee. That could provide a boost to a Ravens running attack that is averaging 3 yards per carry (second-worst in the NFL). Rice, whose carries have decreased every week since the season opener, is due for a breakout game. Denver is tied for 12th in the NFL in run defense after containing Tennessee's Chris Johnson (53 yards on 19 carries)

From Jarret Johnson delivering a crushing sack on the first defensive play to Ray Rice powering his way across the goal line on the offense's last play, the Ravens didn't just defeat the Denver Broncos. They beat up the previously unbeaten Broncos. With three straight losses weighing on their minds during the bye week, the Ravens vented their frustrations with their most complete game of the season, roughing up Denver in a 30-7 rout before 71,132 at M&T Bank Stadium. The defense set the physical tone and held the Broncos to 200 total yards (the fewest by a Denver team since 2003)

Hurdled and bulldozed by Denver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno and outsmarted by quarterback Peyton Manning , the Ravens' defense was rendered largely helpless Sunday. During a crushing 34-17 defeat at M&T Bank Stadium, the Ravens' reactions were usually wrong as Manning cooked up his usual batch of timely audibles to keep the defense off guard. "I felt like it was Christmas, and not for our side," Ravens free safety Ed Reed said. "We were in a giving mood, honestly.

Each week, Baltimore Sun reporters Aaron Wilson and Matt Vensel look back at the Ravens' previous game and that of their next opponent Broncos 34, Ravens 17 Strategy: It was an underwhelming debut for new offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell. His attempt to revive the no-huddle offense, utilizing it on 36 of 62 snaps, was foiled by quarterback Joe Flacco's costly turnovers and a running game overwhelmed by an athletic Broncos front seven. The Ravens used the shotgun formation 40 times, perhaps at the expense of power I-formation football.

It was only a matter of time until former Ravens running back Willis McGahee, who has earned a big role in the Denver Broncos backfield, spoke out publicly about his relationship with his former coach, John Harbaugh. McGahee carried the load for the Ravens in his first season in Baltimore, but after Harbaugh replaced Brian Billick, his role diminished. (The emergence of Ray Rice as a Pro Bowl back was also a factor.) In his final three seasons here, McGahee averaged 8.6 carries a game, though he did score 14 total touchdowns in 2009.

Boston College fired coach Jeff Jagodzinski yesterday, days after he was warned of dismissal if he interviewed for the coaching job with the New York Jets. BC athletic director Gene DeFilippo told Jagodzinski on Saturday that his job would be in jeopardy if he went through with the Jets interview. Jagodzinski met with the team Tuesday night. A few hours later, at a meeting lasting about 25 minutes, DeFilippo told Jagodzinski he was out. DeFilippo said he fired Jagodzinski, 45, over a "difference of vision for the future."
