COLLEGE PARK  -   The Maryland football team puts together a preliminary scouting report of each opponent on its schedule during the summer, scanning through last season's film to get an early feel for what a team might look like this season. For West Virginia, the tape would have shown a mediocre team that finished 4-8 and had problems on offense and defense. A year later, the Mountaineers are much better, as Terps coach Randy Edsall and his staff saw Sunday when they began reviewing West Virginia's early-season tape.

It was Dorothy's mantra in "The Wizard of Oz" and it might as well be the Ravens', too: "There's no place like home. " According to a new ESPN.com article , M&T Bank Stadium ranks as the NFL's toughest venue for opposing teams. No, it's not because of all the drunken, rowdy fans and the fat guys in face-paint, feathers and  beads -- although let's face it, the Bank has its share of those. It's not because of the noise levels. It's not because of "Seven Nation Army" blaring over the sound system until it fries the brain of opposing players.

For most of Ray Lewis' 17-year NFL career, his face - eyes burning, mouth bellowing exhortations - was the face of the Ravens. Johnny Unitas' flinty gaze and stooped shoulders had symbolized pro football for earlier generations of Baltimore fans, and Lewis followed in the great quarterback's footsteps, becoming an icon for the new era of purple and black ardor. The Ravens made that association official Thursday morning, unveiling a bronze statue of the retired linebacker only a few feet from the statue of Unitas that greets visitors outside M&T Bank Stadium.

The Ravens are currently negotiating with several international soccer clubs with the hope of playing host to two potentially high-profile games in the summer. “We are working on bringing two international soccer matches to M&T Bank Stadium this summer, but it is too soon to know if we will be successful,” Ravens President Dick Cass said. M&T Bank Stadium was the site of an exhibition game between A.C. Milan and Chelsea in July 2009 that attracted more than 72,000 fans, which was a sellout.

Have you ever wondered how M&T Bank Stadium would look with purple turf? Me neither. But someone with decent digital video editing skills has, and they put their know-how to use by making a YouTube video of the Ravens playing the Browns -- it’s footage from their Week 3 meeting in 2009 -- on digitally-altered purple turf. I think they should stick with the green stuff. What about you? [ Via @qbtracker on Twitter ]

Will Ray Lewis dance one more time in a Ravens uniform at M&T Bank Stadium? A month ago, no one asked that question because it seemed like the Ravens were headed into the postseason to play at least one home game. Now, nothing is certain. And if the Great Collapse of 2012 continues, Baltimoreans might never see the Ravens inside linebacker do his pregame dance again. And Sunday could be the last home game for Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed, as well as potential free-agent quarterback Joe Flacco.

Of the three Arizona Cardinals who will return to M&T Bank Stadium Sunday, none is more familiar or more beloved than tight end Todd Heap. Heap, who will be joined by two more former Ravens in running back Chester Taylor and punter Dave Zastudil, was released in the offseason, but not before ranking second in franchise history in career receptions (467), career receiving yards (5,492) and career touchdowns (41). So far, Heap, the Ravens' first-round pick in 2001, has had a quiet start with 13 catches for 150 yards and zero touchdowns, and he has missed the last two games because of a strained hamstring.

With Nelly's "Hot in Herre" bumping on the speakers while legendary linebacker Ray Lewis enters M&T Bank Stadium, the Ravens are covered when it comes to pumping up the crowd. But they are asking fans to submit suggestions for a "pump-up song" to play when the defense needs to mount a late-game stand.  “We know how good our fans are -- and they’re great at M&T [Bank Stadium]. They get it and they help us win,” coach John Harbaugh told the team’s website. “If we can take the noise to another level, let’s do it.” The Ravens are 19-5 at M&T Bank Stadium under John Harbaugh, and they have one of the NFL’s best home records over the past decade.

When fans head through the main entrance at M&T Bank Stadium Sunday for the Ravens' regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals, they'll be greeted by a familiar sight. Ray Lewis starred for 17 seasons with the Ravens. Now he'll be immortalized next to another Baltimore sporting icon. The Ravens announced Wednesday that the statue of the middle linebacker will be unveiled Thursday at a ceremony scheduled for 11 a.m. in Unitas Plaza. Sculpted by Frederick Kail, the statue will be erected to the right of one depicting legendary Baltimore Colts quarterback Johnny Unitas outside the north entrance of the stadium.

About eight months ago, the Ravens trudged off the field at Paul Brown Stadium, a 34-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals bringing an end to their season and their streak of five consecutive playoff appearances. Ravens coach John Harbaugh and his players have grown tired of hearing about the disappointing 2013 campaign. The 2014 Ravens are a completely different team, they say. The coaching staff has been overhauled. Some veterans moved on, and rookies and second-year players were elevated into starting roles.

It was only one drive, lasting 10 plays and just under five minutes. But it was just what quarterback Joe Flacco and the first-team offense needed to kick off the preseason and the Gary Kubiak era. Flacco drove the offense down the field for a touchdown in his only series and spent the rest of the night on the sideline watching the Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers, 23-3, in front of an announced 70,529 at M&T Bank Stadium. “It was nice,” Flacco said. “It felt good to get out here in a game-type situation and feel the nerves of a real game.

The Ravens' joint practice with the San Francisco 49ers scheduled for Friday at M&T Bank Stadium has been canceled, the team announced Saturday, citing rules in the NFL's collective bargaining agreement with its players. The CBA limits the number of consecutive days a team can practice or take part in football activities during training camp. The decision to call off Friday's event stems from the 49ers' practice and travel schedule leading up to Thursday's first preseason game at 7:30 p.m. "The CBA, the way their schedule sets up, they're not going to be able to do it," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.

The Westminister residents put out a spread of 50 pieces of fried chicken and homemade deviled eggs on Monday night - and the season doesn't start for six weeks. "This is nothing," Schreiner said. "Come during the season, when we have six tables out.

The Lombardi Trophy finally made it inside M&T Bank Stadium after the Ravens' championship parade snaked through the streets of Baltimore. Tens of thousands of fans lined the streets of Baltimore, and M&T Bank Stadium is at full capacity. Police and stadium officials had to start turning down other fans at the doors. Downtown was so packed, even the Ravens were a little late for their own parade. After stopping off at City Hall, the Ravens arrived at the stadium via handmade floats and high-tech military vehicles.

Minutes after a grinning Ray Lewis swaggered out of the tunnel and did his trademark dance much to the delight of fans and teammates, the Ravens' star middle linebacker was suddenly all business again. The smile quickly left Lewis' face as kickoff approached for the linebacker, who announced Wednesday he will retire at the end of the season. Seventeen years of experience was on display Sunday during Lewis' emotionally-charged final game at M&T Bank Stadium. Lewis recorded a game-high 13 tackles in a 24-9 AFC wild-card victory over the Indianapolis Colts and will join his teammates in Denver for Saturday's divisional game against the Broncos.

At first glance, it's probably hard to see Rahshaun Smith and say he's an underdog. He stands 6 feet 3, weighs 230 pounds and has a deep, booming voice. His nickname is Shaq - and it was given to him at age 12. On the football field, Smith exhibits a rare combination of speed and athleticism that reminds scouts of Jadeveon Clowney and Da'Shawn Hand. Smith's time in the 40-yard dash has been listed anywhere from 4.5 to 4.7 seconds. The defensive lineman has been rated as one of the top prospects for the 2016 recruiting class.

In college lacrosse, there is no substitute for offense. Salisbury learned that lesson Sunday as Tufts scored 11 goals throughout the second and third quarters to emerge with a 12-9 victory in the NCAA Division III men's lacrosse championship before an announced 22,219 at M&T Bank Stadium. The Jumbos (21-2) ended their season with a 14-game winning streak and are now 2-1 in title games, with all three matchups against the Sea Gulls. Tufts defeated Salisbury, 9-6, for the 2010 championship, but the Sea Gulls returned the favor in 2011 with a 19-7 rout.
