TAMPA, FLA. -- Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith knelt in the end zone Sunday afternoon, pausing for a moment to pray after catching a slant pass from Joe Flacco in stride for a touchdown. The former Maryland standout was in a thankful mood during a resurgent game after arguably the roughest stretch of his career. One week after his dropped pass ended a late comeback attempt against the Indianapolis Colts, Smith was jubilant during the Ravens' 48-17 blowout victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium.

Jeff Zrebiec, reporter: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers stink -- let's get that out of the way first. But the Ravens still needed an offensive performance like this on the road. It was extremely beneficial to get Torrey Smith going, and also to incorporate a couple of more targets, like Michael Campanaro and Kamar Aiken, into the offense. Not to be outdone, the defense played well until it let down in the second half. They got a rare interception from a defensive back and a rare - at least lately - sack from Terrell Suggs.

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.

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.

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....

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.
