After a rocky start against the Atlanta Falcons a week ago, the Ravens secondary gets a shot to make amends when wide receiver Calvin Johnson, quarterback Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions visit M&T Bank Stadium on Friday night. But heading into the second of four preseason games, cornerback Lardarius Webb cautioned against putting too much weight on an exhibition that has no impact on the regular season. “I'm looking to go against everybody. It's not just Megatron,” Webb said, referring to Johnson's nickname.

The final word belongs to Ravens rookie free safety Matt Elam . Following a week where he created unwanted headlines when he called Detroit Lions star Calvin Johnson "pretty old," Elam intercepted a Matthew Stafford pass in the final minute to preserve the Ravens' 18-16 victory Monday night at Ford Field. The first-round draft pick recorded a game-high 10 tackles and capped the game with the first interception of his career. Afterward in the Ravens' locker room, Elam was emotional after contributing the biggest play of his NFL career.

Check with Packers Dan Pompei Chicago Tribune The Lions are legitimate, no question. They have a dynamic quarterback-receiver combination in Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson. Their defensive line may be the best in football. They come to play well-prepared and fired up. Their biggest problem is they play in the same neighborhood as the Super Bowl champions, and as of now, the Packers still are carrying a bigger stick. The Lions are not flawless.

It seems improbable, but the Ravens are more than willing to let Justin Tucker kick them all the way to the playoffs. Tucker's sixth field goal of the night, this one from 61 yards with 38 seconds to play, pushed the Ravens to their biggest victory of the season, an 18-16 win over the Detroit Lions in front of a raucous and shocked crowd of 64,742 at Ford Field on Monday night. The longest field goal in Ravens' history - and the longest ever in NFL history indoors - secured the Ravens' fourth straight victory and keeps them in control of their playoff future.

Now that the NFL season is here, I'm putting a twist on my weekly Blogger on Blogger series. Each week, I will enlist a blogger who regularly writes about the Ravens' opponent to help me break down the game. This week, I exchanged emails with Max DeMara, who blogs about the Detroit Lions for Lions101.com . MV: The Lions were expected to run away with the NFC North after the Green Bay Packers lost Aaron Rodgers and the Chicago Bears lost Jay Cutler. But the Lions have lost three of their past four games and remain tied with the Bears at 7-6. The Packers, who could get Rodgers back this week or next, are a half game back at 6-6-1.

Raiders poised Ken Murray Baltimore Sun Five new teams made the playoffs this season — down from six the year before — and there is no shortage of candidates for 2011, if there is a 2011 season. Perennials such as the Cowboys, Giants and Chargers will contend. Several other teams just need a competent quarterback to get back, including the Dolphins, Titans, Cardinals and Vikings. But the teams that intrigue me most are the Bucs, Rams, Texans and Raiders.

Eagles   34, Lions 20 Strategy:  Heavy snowfall forced the Lions to alter their game plan Sunday, as the pass-happy offense tried to use its big offensive line to pound the Eagles with the running game. The Lions ran the ball more than they passed it but they still used three-receiver sets and took shots down the field, as they will likely do indoors on Monday night. The Lions, who run a 4-3 base defense, relied on a four-man rush to generate pressure, especially with a pair of dominant interior pass rushers pushing the pocket up the middle.

The Ravens have seen this sleight-of-hand trick before. For the second time in three weeks, the defensive game plan has been altered after an opponent made a change at quarterback. But unlike the Week 11 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers when the switch from Ben Roethlisberger to Dennis Dixon wasn't announced until the day before the game, the defense has been working since Wednesday making preparations for the Detroit Lions' Daunte Culpepper. "That way, you get a whole week to prepare," defensive tackle Kelly Gregg said.
