This has nothing to do with the Ravens or the Steelers, so I apologize for that. But we found out Thursday night that touchdowns on kickoff returns are still indeed possible. It just takes a perfectly-timed barrel roll over a defender. Here is proof in the form of Randall Cobb's "Matrix"-like return in Green Bay's win over New Orleans.

Ravens rookie free safety Matt Elam has only played six games in the NFL, but he is already aware of the split-second dilemma that defenders face while converging on pass-catchers in the open field and taking aim at target areas some feel are shrinking by the second. Go high and your bank account could take a hit. Go low and you could cause a serious knee injury, something that many players would prefer much less than a concussion. Elam was put in that position late in the second quarter of Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb was having a quiet day as a receiver Sunday, but Cobb found another way to spark the Packers in the third quarter of their 22-9 victory over the Detroit Lions. On the first play of one drive, the Packers sent three wide receivers and two tight ends out onto the field. But instead of spreading all five players across the line of scrimmage as receivers, they caught the Lions off guard by lining up Cobb in the backfield next to quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who was in the shotgun.

Packers vs. Ravens Dan Pompei Chicago Tribune In the NFL, the team with the best quarterback usually has the best chance of going all the way. So that's why the Packers have to be the favorite in the NFC. Aaron Rodgers is on top of his game and clearly was the NFL's finest passer in 2011. The Packers also were the NFL's best team for the entire regular season, winning 15 games. They might not win 15 again, but they could win the ones that count this time. In the AFC, it could come down to the Patriots, who have the best quarterback in their conference in Tom Brady, and the Ravens.

With all the debate on the rule change that moved kickoffs up five yards to the 35-yard line this season, it was hardly surprising that 49 percent of kickoffs resulted in touchbacks over the NFL season's opening weekend. What wasn't expected was for three of the kickoff returns to be brought back for touchdowns, tying a league record for Week One. So much for the rule change helping only the team covering the kick. “I think it surprised a lot of people,” said Jerry Rosburg, the Ravens' assistant head coach and special teams coordinator.

- A season that began with such promise for the Washington Redskins has unraveled in rapid fashion. The team's record dropped to 0-2 here Sunday, and they looked stunningly overmatched in the process, surrendering the game's first 31 points as the Green Bay Packers coasted to a 38-20 victory at Lambeau Field. "We knew in order to win here in this venue, we had to play one of our better games," Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said. "And obviously we didn't do that today. I thought we almost had to play error-free football, play one of our better games, and we probably did just the opposite in the first half.

Now that the NFL season is here, I'm putting a twist on my weekly Blogger on Blogger series. Each week, I hope to enlist a blogger who regularly writes about the Ravens' opponent to help me break down the game. This week, I exchanged emails with Zach Kruse, who blogs about the Packers for Cheesehead TV . MV: The Packers were my Super Bowl pick, so you're welcome for the kiss of death. But right now, what are we to make of a Packers team that has two wins and lost to two good teams on the road?

The Ravens, one of the NFL's top drafting teams, have struggled in one area: Selecting wide receivers. Of the 16 wide receivers drafted by the Ravens, none have eclipsed 70 catches in a season or 1,000 yards for the team. They have tried to find targets that can stretch the field everywhere from the first round (Travis Taylor and Mark Clayton) to the seventh (Derek Abney and Justin Harper). They've selected big receivers (Clarence Moore at 6 feet 6) and smaller ones (Patrick Johnson at 5 feet 11)
