Ravens running back Bernard Pierce was unharmed despite being the victim of an armed robbery and carjacking last Sunday in Philadelphia. “Bernard's fine,” his agent Martin Magid told The Baltimore Sun on Tuesday. “The police are investigating the incident. Any questions about it should be forwarded to the Philadelphia Police Department. It's not the best situation, but he's good.” Magid said that Pierce, an Ardmore native who played his college football at Temple, was visiting friends in a “nice area” early Sunday evening when the incident occurred.

As he stood in front of hundreds of kids last year at his football clinic at Calvert Hall, Ray Rice made a promise to those in the crowd. “When I make promises, I like to keep them,” the Ravens running back said today. “I made a special promise. We said that we were going to bring a Super Bowl back to Baltimore.” The comment was met with loud cheers by those who attended the second annual Ray Rice Day in Baltimore. “Being involved in the community is just something that, winning the Super Bowl or not, I know I'd be out here doing Ray Rice Day again and I'd be telling the kids the same message every day,” Rice said.

Running back Anthony Allen , a key performer on the Ravens' highly successful special teams units last season, signed his exclusive rights free agent tender, the team announced today. Allen, a 24-year-old who the Ravens drafted out of Georgia Tech in the seventh round of the 2011 draft, has 19 carries for 69 yards and a touchdown in two seasons with the team. He was one of the Ravens' most valuable and unheralded special teams players this past season. Allen was the lead blocker for Pro Bowl kick returner Jacoby Jones , who set a franchise record with three return touchdowns during the regular season.

Few annual events trigger over-the-top saturation media coverage like the Super Bowl, and No. XLVII has once again demonstrated its curious effects. When so much is said, written and broadcast about deer antler spray, you know you have either gone down the rabbit hole, inside the local hunting supply store or possibly into the French Quarter after a particularly bad bender. Our favorite moments of high absurdity, however, have been reserved for the endless explorations of the Harbaugh family and any possible signs of sibling rivalry between brothers John and Jim. We won't linger on the obvious, but it's no surprise that the "Har-Bowl" or any of the other variations on the theme drew attention.

Each day this week, reporter and blogger Matt Vensel will break down a key matchup from Sunday's Super Bowl. Today, he looks at how the 49ers may try to keep Ravens running back Ray Rice out of the end zone. In Ray Rice, the Ravens have one of the NFL's most versatile playmakers, a running back who is capable of grinding out tough yards between the tackles and producing big plays outside of them. He is a slippery runner inside the red zone. And he is one of few legit runners who can also flex out wide and do damage as a receiver.

NEW ORLEANS - Ravens coach John Harbaugh rattled off plenty of positives about his running backs coach Wilbert Montgomery on Wednesday morning. Then Harbaugh stopped himself to add one more. "… At one time, he was the fastest human being in the world, did you know that? He was, a long time ago. " Montgomery acknowledges he was a pretty fast guy growing up in Greenville, Miss., in the early 1970s. During his high school days, Montgomery and his brother, Cleotha, clocked 9.3 seconds in the 100-yard dash on cinder rocks instead of the smooth, cushioned track surfaces of today.

The Ravens are packing their bags for New Orleans because the front office and coaching staff have pulled the trigger on a bunch of key moves over the past 12 months, from extending Ray Rice and signing players like Corey Graham and Justin Tucker to changing offensive coordinators and switching up the offensive line. That last move was arguably the most impactful, as the offensive line has been great the past three weeks. Just how great? I ask you this, when was the last time you cringed as Joe Flacco endured a crushing sack?

Bernard Pierce returned to practice for the first time this week and after Thursday's session, the rookie running back declared himself and his injured right knee ready for the Ravens' road game against the Denver Broncos in Saturday's AFC Divisional playoff round. “I'm good,” he said. “I'm ready to go. I'm ready to go to war with my guys.” Pierce's availability could be significant for the Ravens. He has led the team in rushing in each of the last three contests, culminating with a 13-carry, 103-yard performance in last Sunday's 24-9 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Wildcard round.

Ray Rice knifed through the heart of the New England Patriots defense, into the end zone and into our collective memories, his 83-yard touchdown run in the 2009 playoffs quickly becoming one of the most unforgettable plays in Ravens history and in his young career. On that frigid afternoon in Foxborough, Rice rushed for 159 yards and two touchdowns, carrying the Ravens offense and their hobbled quarterback, Joe Flacco, to a stunning wild-card win. It was the only time in eight career playoff games that Rice topped 70 rushing yards, and his two fumbles in Sunday's win over the Indianapolis Colts gave him five for his postseason career.
