The NFL is devoting commercial time to public service announcements from the No More anti-domestic violence campaign during all of its game broadcasts this weekend, including broadcasts on CBS, FOX, NBC and ESPN, according to NFL spokeswoman Joanna Hunter. The 30-second PSA video  also ran during the New York Giants-Washington Redskins game on Thursday night. The PSA delivers a strong message speaking out against domestic violence and sexual assault. It includes appearances by actors Courtney Cox, Amy Poehler, Ice-T, Mariska Hargitay, Andre Braugher and Debra Messing.

It seemed like a good marketing tool for the NFL to launch a series of Thursday night games on the NFL Network this season, but one month into the prime-time project, coaches would rather walk across burning coals than play on three days' rest. The quick turnaround creates a competitive imbalance and makes players more susceptible to injury, say coaches who have participated in the late-season TV series.

Free agent LaQuan Williams , a wide receiver out of Maryland who made the 2011 Ravens as an undrafted free agent and played parts of two seasons with the organization, is re-signing with the team. “Feels good to be back home Raven Nation,” Williams wrote on his Twitter account. The 25-year-old will agree to a one-year deal. Williams, who played his high school football at Poly, has been out of the NFL since last November and hasn't played in a regular-season game since the 2012 season.

Baltimore Sun reporter Jeff Barker, producer-editor Jonas Shaffer and deputy sports editor David Selig weigh in on three topics from the past week in Maryland sports. What do you think of Mark Turgeon's request to the men's basketball team to relax and have more “fun” during games? Jeff Barker: People may scoff at it, but not me. It's not THE answer, of course. But playing with a more relaxed attitude - enjoying the game they've loved since they were kids - sure can't hurt.

With the Ravens out of the playoffs, thanks to their miserable play the last two weeks of the season, I promised myself I was only going to watch football this weekend - not write about it. So, here I am writing. Why? I can't resist commenting on CBS Sports giving viewers of Sunday's playoff game between the Cincinnati Bengals and San Diego Chargers exactly what I have been lobbying for all year: a sideline reporter. Tracy Wolfson joined Jim Nantz and Phil Simms, and she provided viewers with some of the things I wanted in a Ravens telecast: injury reports, condition of the field, a sense of what was happening on the benches.

Of the 53 players on the Ravens' active roster, only four have been to a Super Bowl. And only one was there last year. James Ihedigbo was a starting safety for New England, and as the Ravens spent last week gearing up for meeting the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3, the memory of that 21-17 Patriots loss to the New York Giants almost a year ago was still fresh in his mind. "You don't ever want to be on the other end of it, the loser's end," he said. "Coming into this whole week, it's preparation, it's understanding the type of offense the 49ers run, the things they do on special teams, how they want to attack us, and how do we want to attack them.

The TV ads are quirky, the advertiser unusual: Advance, a Cockeysville-based document management company, has run a campaign during Ravens games showing executives kicking around off-the-wall ideas in a boardroom. Business-to-business advertisers don't normally target mass audiences. Football games typically offer up a steady diet of beer and car commercials. But Advance has used its ads to build a reputation for approachability and service. "We're really trying to build on the idea that we're about relationships, and about being made up of a group of people who are going to care about your business," said Jeff Elkin, president of Advance.

The Ravens and Redskins will host playoff games Sunday, about 30 miles and 31/2 hours apart. Hosting two of the NFL's four playoff games in Maryland offers something of an economic double shot for the state. The games bring an increase in local taxes, a significant boost to the host teams' bottom lines and could have a combined economic impact of about $20 million to more than $40 million. But economists say most of the money being spent in Baltimore and Landover this weekend would have been spent in the area anyway.

The chant began the instant the Colts' placekicker set foot on the field. From deep within Memorial Stadium, football fans growled his name in near-ritualistic delight. RAAAOOOOL ... RAAAOOOOL. Raul Allegre would save the day, they swore. Often, he did. Four times as a rookie in 1983, Allegre booted game-winning field goals for the Colts (7-9), who boasted his right leg and little else on offense. The Mexico-born kicker accounted for 112 points, or nearly half of the team's output that year, its last in Baltimore.

John Madden, it turns out, has a philosophy. And it can be summed up neatly, as most things in life can, in the words of a pop song:Sha la la la la la, live for today.Sha la la la la la, live for today.And don't worry 'bout tomorrow, hey.As Madden approaches his last NFL game with CBS for the foreseeable future, he says he hasn't been looking much past doing Sunday's NFC championship between the Cowboys and 49ers with his partner of 13 years, Pat Summerall. After that, there is the matter of where football's best analyst will be employed next season, but Madden said he really hasn't been thinking about it."

The Ravens continued to tinker with their roster as they approach today's 4 p.m. first full-team practice of training camp, signing former Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Logan Payne , and waiving undrafted free agent fullback Jamison Berryhill . Payne, who is 6-2 and 203 pounds, last played in the NFL in 2008 for the Seattle Seahawks when he started two games and caught three balls for 39 yards in the season opener. In a Week Two game, he tore the media collateral ligament in his knee and spent the rest of the 2008 season on injured reserve.

Expect the expected Peter Schmuck Baltimore Sun Though it would certainly add some spice if Tim Tebow could pull off another last-minute miracle against the Patriots, it doesn't look like there will be a lot of surprises this weekend. The Patriots already showed what they think of Tebowmania during the regular season and the other AFC slot figures to go to the team (Ravens) that was 8-0 at home this year and already beat the Texans there. Don't expect the unexpected when the Giants go into Lambeau Field either.
