One of the few criticisms the Ravens have encountered after their 37-7 thumping of the St. Louis Rams on Sunday was the decision to have quarterback Joe Flacco run the offense in the last 3 minutes, 10 seconds of the game. Keeping Flacco in a game that had already been decided might put the franchise quarterback at risk to a season-ending injury, but coach John Harbaugh said during his weekly briefing Monday that allowing Flacco to play with reserves like offensive linemen Bryan Mattison and Jah Reid, wide receivers LaQuan Williams and Tandon Doss and running back Anthony Allen could provide benefits in the long run. “We did replace as many guys as we could,” Harbaugh began.

Days after the Ravens added eight players in the NFL draft, director of player personnel Eric DeCosta said there are items left on their wish list - assuming the player and the price are right. "We're very excited about last weekend and the draft we just had," DeCosta said. "Our work is not yet done. … There are still moves left to be made. This team is not yet ready for September. " DeCosta was the featured guest Wednesday night at The Baltimore Sun Newsmaker Forum series at the Jewish Community Center in Owings Mills.

If the Ravens wish to leave Cincinnati with their 11th win of the season and a hope of leapfrogging the New England Patriots for the No. 3 seed in the AFC playoffs, they need to find a way to neutralize Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins. In just his third year in the NFL, the 6-foot, 300-pound defensive tackle leads all interior linemen in sacks with 13, which ranks fifth in the league behind the likes of Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt (20½ sacks), San Francisco 49ers outside linebacker Aldon Smith (19½)

Survival game The Ravens' offense managed only three field goals but it left satisfied. After losing two offensive linemen (left tackle Adam Terry and center Mike Flynn) on one series in the first half, the Ravens had to gut it out with three rookie blockers. Plus, with Todd Heap and Daniel Wilcox sidelined, the Ravens played with one healthy tight end (Quinn Sypniewski). Back and kicking After uncharacteristically missing two field-goal attempts a week ago, Matt Stover carried the Ravens offensively with three field goals yesterday, converting from 26, 32 and 49 yards.

The NFL has released some intimate audio and video from the sidelines of Super Bowl XLVII, and one of the most interesting exchanges was filmed on the Ravens sideline before the final play of Baltimore's 34-31 win. As Sam Koch prepared to boot a free kick to San Francisco 49ers return Ted Ginn Jr., quarterback Joe Flacco told his teammates to run onto the field and tackle Ginn if it looked like he was going to score. This, of course, is illegal and could have resulted in an automatic touchdown, but Flacco wasn't sure about the rule.

When I first heard the news of Orlando Brown's death, like most people, I was stunned. Not Zeus. He was too tough to die. There was nothing fierce or mean enough to be able to take Orlando Brown away from here. But as time wore on Friday, I started smiling because Zeus had fooled me again. He always portrayed this image as the toughest guy on the planet, but for those who really knew him, Zeus was a pussycat, one of the nicest people you'd ever meet. He was a huge man with a huge heart.
