Each week, Baltimore Sun reporters Aaron Wilson and Matt Vensel look back at the Ravens' previous game and that of their next opponent. Saints 38, Dolphins 17 Strategy: The Dolphins, in their variation of the West Coast offense, rely on short drops and quick passes to get the ball to their receivers in the passing game. They used a lot of three-wide-receiver sets with mobile second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill in the shotgun or pistol formation against the Saints on Monday night, especially as they tried to play catch-up after halftime.

The NFL has dropped the hammer on the New Orleans Saints. And believe me, it was a heavy hammer. The league on Wednesday afternoon announced the punishment for the Saints in their bounty scandal. (And moments later, the New York Jets announced that they had traded for Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, a sequence of events that surely put Twitter's servers to the test.) With its ruling on the Saints, the NFL made it clear that bounty systems must go the way of leather helmets.

Going into the season, the Washington Redskins figured that today's game against the New Orleans Saints at the Superdome would have playoff implications and maybe even be a division-clincher. The Redskins were correct in their assessment, just not in the way they counted on. Redskins@Saints Today, 1 p.m., Ch. 5, 1430 AM Line: Saints by 9 1/2

This was one of the great scenes of this Ravens season, and it came in the moments immediately after that huge 30-24 win over the New Orleans Saints Sunday. John Harbaugh had just finished his post-game interview and burst through the door of the Ravens locker room. Smiling radiantly, the Ravens coach made a sharp right turn and headed straight for the showers. "HOW 'BOUT THEM RAVENS?!" he screamed. And from the gushing water and swirling mist there came this joyous hooting and howling as a dozen players, including Ray Lewis, still the heart and soul of this team, took up the cry: "HOW 'BOUT THEM RAVENS?

Quick look: It is fitting that Peyton Manning and Drew Brees meet in the Super Bowl, because they were the best quarterbacks in the NFL this season and the players who finished first and second in the voting for NFL Most Valuable Player. Brees quarterbacked the Saints to their first Super Bowl appearance by leading the league in passer rating (109.6) and completion percentage (70.6), and by throwing more touchdown passes (34) than anyone. He got a little help from his friends in the backfield — Pierre Thomas, Mike Bell and Reggie Bush — as the Saints went from the 28th-ranked run game in the NFL to the sixth.

NEW ORLEANS - Saints coach Sean Payton carefully avoided superlatives, even as his team chased perfection in bolting to a 13-0 start. As the Patriots learned two years ago, it's not about pursuing 19-0, it's about pursuing victory in the final game. Maybe when this season is over, a three-game skid to end the regular season, including home losses to the Cowboys and Buccaneers, will turn out to be the springboard his Saints needed entering the playoffs. Momentum can be a fleeting thing, but the Saints grabbed firm control of it Saturday when they crushed the Cardinals 45-14.

AN EAGER CROWD HAD GATHERED IN the Baltimore Convention Center's Charles Street lobby to watch a ribbon cutting. It wasn't the ribbon cutting itself that excited this group. It was what came right after -- the Preview Night Party for the Baltimore Boat Show. That meant having first crack at the 700 boats on display inside the center. It also meant that perusing all the vessels and their accoutrements came with drinks, hors d'oeuvres and even Chesapeake cruising tunes provided by Them Eastport Oyster Boys.

The world may be watching when the Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears hook up tonight in the Super Bowl, but only because the football gods fumbled the matchup that everybody really wanted to see. OK, not everybody, but everybody who counts. Ravens fans were geared up for glory, and the rest of the country (with a couple of notable metropolitan exceptions) wanted to see the New Orleans Saints complete their unlikely march to Miami. Who would have gone home with the Lombardi Trophy? Who knows, but an Internet site called WhatIFSports.

Every sports town brags that it has the best fans in the world (except maybe Philadelphia), but teacher Colleen Pavelka might have put Chicago over the top when she asked doctors to induce labor on Friday to assure her husband would be able to attend yesterday's NFC championship game at Soldier Field. Obviously, Mark Pavelka is a huge Chicago Bears fan if he was grappling with the choice of watching his wife have a baby or maybe watching Rex Grossman lay a giant egg, but to hear that his wife was willing to move up the birth of the couple's second child just so he wouldn't have to face that decision, well, it almost brought tears to my eyes.

NEW ORLEANS -- Shortly after taking the job as coach of the New Orleans Saints last winter, Sean Payton set about persuading Drew Brees to sign with the team. Payton showed the free-agent quarterback and his wife around the city - then got lost driving them back to the Saints' suburban training facility. After a period of time steering aimlessly, he called for directions and was told to head in the opposite direction. It might have been the only wrong turn Payton has taken since arriving here.
