The loss of inside linebacker Ray Lewis to a torn right triceps suffered in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 31-29 win against the Dallas Cowboys saps the Ravens of their leading tackler and emotional sparkplug. But according to a pair of NFL Network analysts, the defense should fare fine even without the 13-time Pro Bowler. Speaking on “Thursday Night Kickoff,” former St. Louis Rams running back Marshall Faulk pointed out that the unit hasn't been exactly suffocating through the first six games of the season and that was with Lewis in the starting lineup.

DALLAS — All Shannon Sharpe thought about Saturday was whether his 88-year-old grandmother, Mary Porter , ever would see him get elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. "I thought if it doesn't happen today…," Sharpe began, his voice trailing. "The only thing I've ever wanted was to make my grandmother proud and I said if I don't get in, she's not going to hear me thank her and be able to give a speech. Granny, thanks for everything you did. I'm the man I am today because of you. " Sharpe was one of seven men elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame by a 44-member panel that met for 71/2 hours to pare down a list of 15 finalists.

The formation: One-back set with two tight ends.The action: At the snap, the receivers and one tight end run off their opposing defensive backs. The offensive line uses a zone-blocking scheme, the objective of the play being to stretch out the defense and get a five-on-five matchup inside the box or near the line of scrimmage. Left guard Steve McKinney and left tackle Tarik Glenn double-team the tackle and seal off the back ** side. Center Jay Leeuwenburg steps play-side and reaches on the defensive tackle.

Wrapping up some sports media notes while reminding you it's not the size of the present that matters, it's how much it costs: * Not only has the NFL bestowed the honor upon the Ravens to play in what is most likely the Dallas Cowboys' final game at Texas Stadium, but the league also made tomorrow night's game an NFL Network telecast (carried locally on WBAL/Channel 11). And, as if that weren't enough, the analyst pair for the game will include Deion Sanders. Regular NFL Network game analyst Cris Collinsworth can't call the game because he needs to be in New York for his NBC duties Sunday, so Sanders and Marshall Faulk - the regular studio analysts - join play-by-play man Bob Papa.

Even before it was mercifully put to rest in 2004, I never believed, not for a minute, in the Curse of the Bambino. It was, in my opinion, a lame excuse that people trotted out when they attempted to rationalize or ignore the bad decisions made by countless Boston Red Sox teams. That's true for the Chicago Cubs, as well. Curses, whether they're named after a billy goat or a man wearing headphones and a hoodie named Bartman, are a cop-out. In sports, people choose their own destiny. Nothing is predetermined.

Arizona (1-2) at St. Louis (1-2) Time: 1 p.m. Line: Rams by 10 1/2 Key stat: Rams haven't held an opponent to fewer than 23 points. Players to watch: Rams RB Lamar Gordon, averaging 5.1 yards per carry in limited action, takes over from the injured Marshall Faulk. RB Emmitt Smith is averaging only 3.6 yards a carry for the Cardinals. The buzz: No Kurt Warner. No Marshall Faulk. These are not the Rams you have known. Despite last week's upset of the Packers, these are pretty much the Cardinals you have known, although Jeff Blake-to-Anquan Boldin is a solid passing combination.

SAN DIEGO -- It was Mark Moody, not Marshall Faulk, who struck a familiar pose here Saturday night. In fact, he did it twice in the fourth quarter of Air Force's 20-17 victory over San Diego State at Jack Murphy Stadium. Not that Moody has a chance to win college football's most famous trophy. That didn't deter Moody from mugging it up after helping stop Heisman Trophy front-runner Marshall Faulk on a crucial fourth-and-one with less than two minutes left in the game."It just got into my mind," said Moody, a 6-foot-3, 236-pound junior linebacker from San Antonio.

NEW ORLEANS - Ten years ago, Mike Martz was out of a job but not ambition. He had been fired as offensive coordinator at Arizona State, along with the rest of the staff. All his job leads dried up. He had nowhere to go. And the more he thought about it, the more he figured it was time to test the waters of the NFL. Why not? He had watched - and fallen in love with - the San Diego Chargers' powerhouse offensive teams of the early 1980s. He was infatuated with the scheming of Chargers coach Don Coryell.
