Steelers WR Mike Wallace vs Ravens CBs Cary Williams and Corey Graham: Wallace might be the fastest wide receiver in the NFL. If quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was playing, the Ravens would be in serious trouble. They still could get burned a lot with Byron Leftwich replacing Roethlisberger. Williams has improved in recent weeks and Graham is more physcial than former starter Jimmy Smith. The Ravens have to neutralize Pittsburgh's speed. Edge: Steeleers. Steelers OLB's Lamarr Woodley and James Harrison vs Ravens OT's Michael Oher and Kelechi Osemele: Two years ago, the Steelers would dominate this matchup, but Harrison has had knee problems and Woodley is struggling against the run. The Ravens should be able to attack Harrison directly and Osemele has to seal off the back side for the running game to be effective.

The Ravens looked at other players before selecting Alabama outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw with the No. 35 overall pick. The Ravens were really impressed with Georgia Tech receiver Stephen Hill, but they had rated Upshaw signicantly higher. The Ravens also liked Clemson outside linebacker Andre Branch, but they thought he was more of a better fit for a 4-3 instead of the 3-4 run by the Ravens. Upshaw will be a SAM or strong side linebacker for the Ravens and will challenge Paul Kruger for playing time.

If there isn't a run on quarterbacks in the first round, then the Ravens might trade out of it and gain more picks. We are hearing there have been a number of teams that have already contacted the Ravens about possibly sliding back to No. 32 in the first round.  It wouldn't be suprising if Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome moved back. With 12 picks, they have a lot of options one way or the other.

Starting tight end Dennis Pitta is expected to miss the season opener against Denver because of a dislocated hip injury he suffered in practice Saturday, but few know how long he will be sidelined. A dislocated hip is a freak injury, at least in the NFL, and there isn't a time table on how long it takes to recover. Even Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, who has been coaching in the NFL since 1998, admitted that he has never known a player who suffered the injury. The injury could be devastating for the Ravens, who are still in search of a No. 2 wide receiver.

The Orioles announced Friday that right-handed reliever Preston Guilmet, who was designated for assignment off the 40-man roster Saturday to make room for infielder Alexi Casilla, has been traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates for cash considerations. Guilmet, acquired in a minor league trade with the Cleveland Indians in April, was shuttled between the major leagues and Triple-A Norfolk frequently this season, making 10 appearances with the Orioles and 40 for the Tides. He allowed six earned runs and eight hits in 10 1/3 innings in the majors.

Some of our representatives in Congress have started to weigh in on the NFL's decision to suspend running back Ray Rice for only two games, as if they don't have enough to do already. There is fighting the Middle East, a confrontation in Ukraine, immigrants illegally crossing our borders by the thousands and veterans not getting their benefits, and our legislators are coming down heavy on the NFL and the Ravens about the Rice suspension. If anything, they should work to improve our justice system, which did absolutely nothing to Rice.

The Orioles officially placed left-hander T.J. McFarland on the bereavement list Monday and recalled right-hander Preston Guilmet from Triple-A Norfolk. McFarland was expected to travel Monday to Chicago to be with his family after the death of his grandmother over the weekend. McFarland, who picked up the win Sunday after pitching a scoreless inning in the Orioles' 3-2, 10-inning victory over the Seattle Mariners, is expected to miss the first two games of this week's three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels at Camden Yards.

Some pitchers struggle in their first appearance against their former team. But not Orioles right-hander Preston Guilmet. Forgotten in the Orioles' 13-inning loss to the Cleveland Indians on Thursday night was Guilmet's performance, a perfect relief outing after he was called up from Triple-A Norfolk just hours before the game. Promoted to replace right-hander Tommy Hunter, who went on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left groin, Guilmet tossed 2 1/3 hitless innings against the Indians.

If as Duke wins another national championship in men's lacrosse Monday at M&T Bank Stadium, then we can start talking about a dynasty. If the Blue Devils capture another title, it will be their third in five years (2010 and 2013). And there is no denying that Duke has been the most consistent and dominant power, having played in eight straight Final Fours. In that time, some of the traditional powers -- like Virginia, Syracuse, Cornell and Johns Hopkins -- have slipped . At some of those schools, there have been rumors about firing some of the game's greatest coaches, even though those talks always seem to be premature.
