Some sports name three stars of the game after the game. I'll do that one better: I'm going to name them before the Ravens even play. These will be the three stars when the Ravens travel to Tampa Bay to face the Buccaneers on Sunday. 1. Tight end Owen Daniels When Daniels caught a pair of scores on play-action passes in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the football world collectively slapped its head, as if to say: "Why didn't we think of that?" Daniels was a frequent red-zone target for Gary Kubiak when the Ravens offensive coordinator was in Houston, and the plays he scored on were textbook Kubiak sets.

Ravens run offense vs. Steelers run defense: Ray Rice's two lowest rushing totals of the season came against the Steelers. He rushed for 20 yards against them at Pittsburgh and managed 32 yards against them at M&T Bank Stadium. Offensive coordinator Cam Cameron hasn't shown a commitment to the ground game against the NFL's top-ranked run defense, giving the ball to Rice a total of 17 times in two meetings. Fullback Le'Ron McClain is back after missing the last meeting with an ankle injury.

The Cincinnati Bengals have emerged as one of the top feel-good stories - on and off the field - through three games. Undefeated and atop the AFC North standings, the Bengals are the current front-runners in the division race. They're ranked first in the NFL in yards per pass and fewest sacks allowed. Their defense has allowed the fewest points in the league. Away from the field, they have received an outpouring of support for defensive tackle Devon Still and his 4-year-old daughter, Leah.

Stop by the Martin's Food Store in Hagerstown and you'll find him at his post. Mike Collier is a night manager, his job for 18 years. It's the perfect role for the former Pittsburgh Steelers running back. He's used to bringing home the bacon. Collier, who starred at Edmondson High and Morgan State, played on Pittsburgh's Super Bowl championship team in 1975-76. A rookie, he made the Steelers as a 14th round draft pick, scored a touchdown in his first game and even left his mark on Super Bowl X. With Pittsburgh trailing the Dallas Cowboys, 10-9 in the fourth quarter, Collier raced 25 yards on a punt return to set up a field goal that gave the Steelers the lead for good.

Baltimore Sun reporters, columnists and editors give their instant analysis of the Ravens' 26-6 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2 at M&T Bank Stadium. Jeff Zrebiec, reporter: It wasn't pretty or exciting, but it was certainly effective. The Ravens' 26-6 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers is probably a snapshot of how the Ravens should play going forward. Stick with the running game. Limit the tough throws that Joe Flacco has to make down the field. Force turnovers on the defensive end. The Ravens made very little mistakes in their domination of the Steelers, and that's a real credit to John Harbaugh and his coaching staff.

In 2005, the Steelers had dropped three consecutive games, causing some to question whether Pittsburgh was deserving of a playoff berth. The Steelers won their last four contests in the regular season and eventually the Super Bowl. Inside linebacker Larry Foote is using that memory as inspiration after Pittsburgh snapped a two-game skid with a 23-20 win against the Ravens and kept its postseason hopes alive. “The older guys, we keep telling the younger guys about this,” Foote said after the Steelers improved to 7-5 and cut the Ravens' four-game lead in the AFC North by half.

Desperate times apparently call for harsh measures inside the Pittsburgh Steelers' locker room, a once-vibrant place where fun and games not involving football have now been outlawed. With his team winless through four games and in last place in the AFC North, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin took the unusual step of banning pool, table tennis and shuffleboard at work. Previously, only veteran players were allowed to play. Earlier this season, older players said the games were off-limits to rookies until they first earned their stripes on the field.

It's been almost 48 hours since the Pittsburgh Steelers ruled out Ben Roethlisberger for Sunday night's AFC North showdown, but the quarterback is still on the minds of several Ravens defensive players. Answering a question about the challenge of defending Steelers wide receivers Mike Wallace and Emmanuel Sanders, cornerback Corey Graham referred to Roethlisberger, not his replacement Byron Leftwich. “We were looking at the film and all of those guys are good,” Graham said Thursday.

With a lot of local attention over the weekend focused on running back Ray Rice's recent indictment on a charge of aggravated assault and Opening Day for the Orioles, some big news went unnoticed. The Ravens didn't sign running back LeGarrette Blount - and the Pittsburgh Steelers did. The two-year deal, which is reportedly worth $3.85 million, leaves the Ravens with a big hole and also means they'll have to face a new two-headed monster in Pittsburgh with Blount and Le'Veon Bell.

Terrance West is over the fact that his hometown Ravens did not draft him. Now, the former Towson Tiger is focused on being the featured running back for the upstart Cleveland Browns. That his opportunity continues against a Ravens team that he developed many ties to makes it more special. "It's going to be fun, like playing against another high school," West told reporters on a conference call Wednesday. "Back in high school, I played at Northwestern. It's like playing against Forest Park - guys that you know.

Three weeks after receiving a kidney transplant from his brother, a former Ravens' player, Chris Kemoeatu has heard all of the wisecracks. "Everyone jokes about me having a Ravens' kidney," said Kemoeatu, 31, who played seven years with the Pittsburgh Steelers. "But hey, I can live with that. " He'll have to.

When Ravens coach John Harbaugh scanned the audience in the team auditorium Monday afternoon, the scene was dramatically different than it was for much of last week. There weren't multiple rows of television cameras to chronicle his responses to questions about Ray Rice, a player who was no longer in the organization. There weren't dozens of media outlets represented in the room, few of them interested in talking about a football game. The attention surrounding Rice's release and the way the organization and the NFL handled the running back's assault on his then-fiancee was not the overwhelming topic of conversation at the team facility Monday after it dominated dialogue around the Ravens last week.

Congratulations to Cleveland Browns fans. They finally have a competitive team back in the National Football League. The Browns were on that level in December 2002, the last time they went to the playoffs. Of course, they lost in the first round to the Pittsburgh Steelers, but after two weeks of the 2014 season, Cleveland is making the AFC North race interesting. The Cincinnati Bengals (2-0) are still the favorite to repeat as division champions, but the other three teams - Ravens, Browns, Steelers - have split their first two games.

John Harbaugh walked toward the back of the bench to exhort the fans, wagged four fingers in the air to signal the start of the final quarter and welcomed big defensive tackle Haloti Ngata to the sideline with a flying chest bump that left the Ravens' head coach falling backward.   Despite one of the most trying weeks in franchise history, Harbaugh told general manager Ozzie Newsome on Wednesday that he sensed his team was ready to play well and was he ever prophetic. The Ravens broke the trend of close games against their biggest rival by dominating the Pittsburgh Steelers, 26-6, in front of an announced 71,181 at M&T Bank Stadium and a prime-time television audience.

The Pittsburgh Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger was listed as limited in Wednesday's practice, which was interpreted as a boost in the arm for the Steelers who have dropped two straight games without their franchise quarterback. But a report in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review described Roethlisberger's workout as very brief, his light throwing ending even before some of his teammates reached the practice field. Does this mean that Pittsburgh will err on the side of caution and shelve Roethlisberger for at least another week to give his dislocated ribs and sprained right throwing shoulder more time to heal?

This is what Gary Kubiak's West Coast offense is supposed to look like. It's an offense predicated on running the ball and setting up the passing game off play-action fakes. Of course, the Ravens would like to have converted a few more of those field goals into touchdowns Thursday night, but that should come in the future. Nearly a week after throwing 62 passes, the Ravens stayed with the run and they came away with a big win against the rival Pittsburgh Steelers. The Ravens didn't have a lot of big-gainers, but they had over 100 yards rushing and were committed to the run. That set up two touchdown passes off play-action fakes from quarterback Joe Flacco to tight end Owen Daniels . The running game has always been a major staple of a Kubiak offense from his days as an assistant coach and coordinator with the San Francisco 49ers and the Denver Broncos.

A s the Ravens left the field Thursday night, they had more than just a 26-6 win against the Pittsburgh Steelers . They also had reasons to be encouraged about their defense. The Ravens didn't allow a touchdown. They forced three turnovers and scored off two. They contained Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for most of the game, and they basically pounded the Steelers into submission. At the end, Pittsburgh was worn down and the Ravens had imposed their will.

Just a few weeks ago, Ravens veteran tight end Owen Daniels ' status was very much in doubt. When a chronic hamstring problem sidelined the two-time Pro Bowl selection for the majority of the preseason, Daniels insisted that he knew how his body was responding and was adamant that he would be just fine. Daniels is looking mighty accurate in his self-assessment. He caught a pair of touchdown passes Thursday night in a 26-6 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in a key AFC North game at M&T Bank Stadium.
