Twelve years later, the play sticks in Jeff Mitchell's mind. The one-time Ravens center can still hear the collision, see the Denver player fold and sense the game turning on one bone-jarring hit. "I'd never seen anything like it," Mitchell said of the play that occurred early in the Ravens' victory over Denver in the 2000 playoffs. "Our fullback, Sam Gash, was lead blocker on an outside run when he met up with Bill Romanowski, the Broncos' linebacker who'd been trash-talking all week in the media.

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)

Record-breaking wide receiver Deon Long and offensive lineman Silvano Altamirano have signed letters of intent to play football at Maryland, coach Randy Edsall announced today. Long, a D.C. native and Dunbar High graduate, was the National Junior College Athletic Association's top-ranked receiver in catches (100), yards (1,625) and touchdowns (25). A first-team All-American, the 6-foot-1, 195-pound sophomore led Iowa Western Community College to the NJCAA national championship. “I am very excited about Deon joining the Terrapin family,” Edsall said in a news release.

Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata had mapped out an ambitious plan, albeit one not readily apparent when he lumbered onto the practice field for a June minicamp. Considerably heftier than usual after spending his offseason intentionally bulking up, Ngata didn't display his trademark explosiveness. The extra bulk around Ngata's midsection and torso raised eyebrows about whether the three-time Pro Bowl selection had gone too far in his quest to become stronger and more durable and maintain his speed after wearing down toward the end of last season due to a deep thigh bruise.

One way or another, 2012 is a coming-out season for Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco. Soon after the 2011 season, coach John Harbaugh told offensive coordinator Cam Cameron he wanted to test the limits of the offense and nothing should slow it down. The no-huddle has come to Baltimore: down, set and ready to go. "Oh, they're going to be running it in Baltimore?" asked former Colts and Ravens coach Ted Marchibroda, who installed the offense when he was offensive coordinator of the Buffalo Bills from 1989 to 1991.

Hauling logs with his father at sunrise while growing up in East Texas, Ravens veteran offensive guard Bobbie Williams built his beefy arms into formidable weapons. Now, Williams plans on using them to inflict punishment on his old football team Monday night against the Cincinnati Bengals at M&T Bank Stadium. Williams is adamant he doesn't hold a grudge against the Bengals for not retaining him as a free agent following a season where he broke his right ankle. But Williams acknowledged this game has extra meaning as he'll grapple with the team that gave up on him. "I'd be telling you a story if I said it wasn't," Williams said with a smile.

Although center, guard and tackle are the three positions along the offensive line, the players who make up that front usually say that something as simple as moving from one spot to another or switching from one side to the other is not as easy as it sounds. Mastering that ability to adjust, however, is critical for offensive linemen vying for a spot on a team's active 53-man roster. That's especially true for the Ravens, offensive coordinator Cam Cameron says. “To be a backup, you have to be versatile,” Cameron said after Tuesday's practice at the team's training complex in Owings Mills.

This video of Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs playing running back in high school -- which The Sun's video staff unearthed today -- is a gem across the board. Without further ado, a running highlight blog, if you will, of Suggs back in his playing days for Hamilton High School in Arizona. 0:06 : Suggs is currently listed at 6-3, 260 pounds, but even back at Hamilton, he dwarfs almost every other player. He looks to be significantly larger than every one of his offensive linemen - and he was the running back.

The Ravens are doing the right thing by signing veteran offensive linemen like guard Bobbie Williams and center Tony Wragge. Regardless of head coach John Harbaugh saying the left guard position is open, it really isn't because Williams is the starter. Barring injury, he'll be in the lineup in the season opener. When he was with the Bengals, Williams used to play well against the Ravens and he got an endorsement from Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata during the offseason.
