The Ravens' starters that did suit up for Sunday's regular-season finale, began heading to the sidelines about midway through the first quarter. Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice went first, pulling on a winter cap and a black jacket. Quarterback Joe Flacco followed him a couple of minutes later after playing two uneventful series. By the early stages of the second quarter, they were joined by wide receiver Torrey Smith, center Matt Birk, cornerback Cary Williams and safety Ed Reed. With an AFC North title and a home playoff game next weekend already secured, the Ravens treated their regular-season finale at Paul Brown Stadium like a preseason game.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - In the days before last month's crucial meeting with the St. Louis Rams, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jeff Garcia characterized the game as the biggest of his NFL career. He wound up playing miserably in the 27-14 loss to the Rams, and to a degree, he says now he was dragged down by the pressure he so readily heaped on himself before the season-worst 13-for-36 passing performance and 25.9 efficiency rating in the Dec. 9 game. It won't happen again in today's first-round playoff game against the Green Bay Packers, Garcia said, because he has learned from his biggest mistake of the season.

Unless there's some sort of football fast we're unaware of (and if there is, that should be outlawed), chances are you'll be eating and drinking during Sunday's playoff game. A lot. So we're here to make it just a bit more fun as you watch the Ravens take on the Texans. Things may be “bigger” in Texas, but our Ravens Playoff Drinking Game™ is better. Enjoy (responsibly)! Drink •••• When Joe Flacco overthrows a pass of 20 yards or more •••• Each time Arian Foster fails to pass the line of scrimmage •••• For every unnecessary mention of Tim Tebow •••• Whenever the camera shows Poe •••• Whenever the commentators remind viewers the Steelers lost to the Broncos •••• When there's a random reference to “The Wire” Do a shot •••• If T.J. Yates gets knocked out of the game •••• Wow, George W. Bush makes an appearance!

As a Houston Texans fan, I went to the playoff game against the Ravens and I loved my game-day experience in Baltimore. The fans were both knowledgeable and willing to credit Houston's defense rather than criticize the Ravens' offense. We were treated to an exciting game that could have gone either way. But the best part of the experience was how friendly everyone was toward us Texans fans. Daniel Schein, Houston, Texas
