Ravens run offense vs. Jets run defenseThe Ravens' offensive line rebounded with a strong effort against the Steelers last week. The Jets will be less formidable because outside linebacker James Farrior is out with a knee sprain and middle linebacker Pepper Johnson is past his prime. Last year, though, the Jets moved their linebackers close to the line of scrimmage on first and second downs to neutralize the Ravens' speed and power on the offensive line.Edge -- RAVENSRavens pass offense vs. Jets pass defenseIf everyone were healthy, this would be a matchup in the Ravens' favor, but quarterback Jim Harbaugh's injury neutralizes their advantage.

PITTSBURGH -- It took six games before Pepper Johnson started acting like Pepper Johnson. There the New York Giants linebacker was in the middle of Giants Stadium last Sunday, waving his hands in the air, strutting around the field, working the crowd as well as Jimmy Connors works the U.S. Open.That was the Johnson of 1990 who helped the Giants beat the Cardinals; the Johnson who until then had been noticeably quiet in 1991 even though he leads the team with 40 tackles heading into tonight's game with the Pittsburgh Steelers at Three Rivers Stadium.

With his casual attire augmented by gold earrings, a gold necklace and gold sunglasses, linebacker Ray Lewis flashed a golden smile yesterday, when he reported to the Ravens' training camp after signing a five-year contract worth $5 million.Starting today, when about 30 rookies -- including top draft pick Jonathan Ogden -- take the field with a small group of veterans for the team's first practice at Western Maryland College, Lewis will take the first steps toward what team officials believe will justify his being drafted late in the first round.

The 1990s will be a pivotal time for the Cleveland Browns franchise, especially since the team has decided to relocate in Baltimore.The Browns suffered their worst season in franchise history in 1990, finishing 3-13. Browns coach Bud Carson didn't make it through his second full season, being replaced by interim head coach Jim Shofner on Nov. 5.Three months later, Browns owner Art Modell named Bill Belichick as his new coach."The Browns were in a tough position then," said Belichick. "They had a lot of older players who had been to the playoffs and a few good young ones, but not the core of veterans that are so important to championship teams."
