The Ravens survived an emergency situation at left guard when starter Kelechi Osemele was ruled out shortly before kickoff after testing out his bruised, hyperextended right knee during warmups. Osemele looked immobile while trying to do drills in the end zone, noticeably favoring his knee and unable to plant and change direction enough to convince the coaching staff and trainers to play him. So, the Ravens started rookie fifth-round draft pick John Urschel in place of Osemele after initially announcing that backup center Gino Gradkowski would start at left guard.

Breaking down each aspect of the Ravens' Week 6 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium. PASSING GAME RAVENS: In three starts at home, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has completed 63.9 percent of his pass attempts and thrown six touchdown passes and one interception. In two starts on the road, he's completed 59.4 of his passes with one touchdown and two interceptions. The Ravens' quest to become a better road team starts with Flacco getting off to quicker starts and the offensive line doing a better job of protecting him. The Ravens are optimistic that today could be the day for wide receiver Torrey Smith's breakout.

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.

Most Maryland voters agree that the Ravens were right to fire Ravens running back Ray Rice, but a higher percentage of women than men thought the team's punishment was too severe, according to a new poll for The Baltimore Sun. Fifty-nine percent of men said they supported the team's decision to terminate Rice's contract, while 52 percent of women agreed with the punishment for punching his then-fiancee in an elevator of an Atlantic City casino....

The panels on the stand-up display feature the words of a dozen women who survived domestic violence, telling why they stayed and how they left. Growing out of a larger effort to tackle domestic abuse - or intimate partner violence - as an issue affecting health and safety in the workplace, Kaiser Permanente sends the display, featuring the stories of its employees, around to its medical centers. The project aims to "to open up a conversation, to let employees and members know they're not the only one who may be experiencing domestic violence," said Ann Jordan, program manager for women's health at Kaiser, which offers domestic violence prevention programs to employees, including on-site services, referrals to community services such as shelters and training to recognize signs of abuse.

When Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco took his first snap in the full-squad portion of Wednesday's practice, three of his usual five starting linemen were nowhere to be found. Despite that - and a shaky performance by the offensive line last Sunday - Flacco said he has no concerns about the group. "I'm not even thinking about that," Flacco said. "Three out of five games, I haven't really been touched. This past week, it's really the situation that we have to fix as a whole group.

With an expertly timed delayed blitz late in the first quarter Sunday, Ravens rookie inside linebacker C.J. Mosley shot through a gap in the Indianapolis Colts' offensive line. As quarterback Andrew Luck wound up, Mosley crushed him, popping the football into the air and into the arms of defensive tackle Haloti Ngata for an interception. It wasn't the only impactful play the first-round draft pick and reigning Butkus Award winner delivered during the Ravens' 20-13 road loss Sunday.

Every Wednesday, I'll serve up five stats you should know heading into that week's Ravens game. This week's stats, pertaining to Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, focus on what the Ravens do well and what the Buccaneers don't - which is kind of a lot. 30 - The Buccaneers have the ignominy of ranking 30th in the league in total offense and total defense. The latter is dragged down by the Thursday night dismantling at the hands of the Atlanta Falcons a few weeks ago, but this is a team that's really struggling on both sides of the ball.

Torrey Smith learned a valuable lesson in his rookie season that is serving him well. The Ravens' second-round pick out of the University of Maryland in 2011, Smith struggled badly in his first NFL training camp and then was held without a catch in the first two regular-season games. The chatter had already started that he was the latest in a long line of wide receivers drafted by the Ravens who would never fulfill their potential. Smith quieted such talk with a three-touchdown, 152-yard receiving performance in Week Three against the St. Louis Rams.
