WHO WANTS REGGIE BUSH? With N.C. State defensive end Mario Williams set to be the top pick after signing with the Texans, all eyes are turning to the Saints to see whether they sign Reggie Bush or trade the pick. WHO WILL THE RAVENS PICK? Many draft experts have the Ravens picking Oregon nose tackle Haloti Ngata, whose big body might allow Ray Lewis and the rest of the lineback- ing corps to run free and make more plays. WHO'S THE BEST QUARTERBACK? USC's Mark Leinart and Texas Vince Young top most lists, but NFLperson- nel staffers say Vanderbilt's Jay Cutler (left)

Ravens 18, Lions 16 STRATEGY: The Ravens broke character defensively, deploying cornerback Jimmy Smith to match up in press coverage against Lions star wide receiver Calvin Johnson. He was primarily responsible for limiting Johnson to six receptions for 98 yards and no touchdowns despite being targeted a game-high 14 times. The Ravens devoted most of their resources to flooding zones, with the lone sack coming on a blitz by middle linebacker Daryl Smith. The approach paid dividends, though, with quarterback Matthew Stafford intercepted three times in the second half.

NEW ORLEANS - Saints coach Sean Payton carefully avoided superlatives, even as his team chased perfection in bolting to a 13-0 start. As the Patriots learned two years ago, it's not about pursuing 19-0, it's about pursuing victory in the final game. Maybe when this season is over, a three-game skid to end the regular season, including home losses to the Cowboys and Buccaneers, will turn out to be the springboard his Saints needed entering the playoffs. Momentum can be a fleeting thing, but the Saints grabbed firm control of it Saturday when they crushed the Cardinals 45-14.

RUSHING GAME RAVENS: A beleaguered Ravens running game took baby steps last week, gaining 97 total yards and averaging 3.6 yards per carry. Though he had pedestrian numbers, Ray Rice ran hard and also was a threat out of the backfield with five catches for 42 yards. Short-yardage situations continue to be the team's Achilles' heel. Center Gino Gradkowski and left guard A.Q. Shipley will be under the microscope against one of the league's best fronts. The Ravens still rank 29th in the league in rushing.

LOS ANGELES -- This was nearly a month ago, in the raucous moments after the Southern California football team had finished its perfect regular season with a 66-19 demolition of cross-town rival UCLA and Reggie Bush had put the finishing touches on his Heisman Trophy-winning campaign. As the junior tailback stepped onto the top rung of a ladder to lead the school's band in a rousing rendition of the USC fight song, Lamar Griffin stood a few feet away, recalling the moment when this road to becoming the best college football player in the country began for his 22-year-old stepson.

Good morning --NFL fans-- Be thankful for those two games today. Otherwise, you'd have to talk to your relatives. THEY SAID IT "You know what? He's 34 years old now. It was time to grow up."

The Heisman Trophy Reggie Bush gave up won't be going to another player, award organizers announced Wednesday. "As a result of Reggie Bush's decision to forfeit his title as Heisman winner of 2005, the Trustees have determined that there will be no Heisman Trophy winner for the year 2005," the Heisman Trust said in a statement Texas coach Mack Brown had been championing the idea of the award going to former Longhorns quarterback ...

Texas had every right to play the disrespect card going into the Rose Bowl, and it has every right to slap it on every table it sees from now on, because the game was portrayed everywhere as a USC coronation. Texas got the perfunctory "They're pretty good, too, you know, being undefeated and all" coverage. But they sure didn't get an 11-part series on ESPN about where they fit in with the greatest teams in the history of college football. Nor did Vince Young, a stupendously talented, successful and mesmerizing player since his freshman year, get mentioned as the "best ever," the way Reggie Bush did. The next Gale Sayers?

Now that the NFL season is here, I'm putting a twist on my weekly Blogger on Blogger series. Each week, I will enlist a blogger who regularly writes about the Ravens' opponent to help me break down the game. This week, I exchanged emails with Max DeMara, who blogs about the Detroit Lions for Lions101.com . MV: The Lions were expected to run away with the NFC North after the Green Bay Packers lost Aaron Rodgers and the Chicago Bears lost Jay Cutler. But the Lions have lost three of their past four games and remain tied with the Bears at 7-6. The Packers, who could get Rodgers back this week or next, are a half game back at 6-6-1.

In eager anticipation of the 2013 NFL season, Baltimore Sun blogger and reporter Matt Vensel will take a daily look at one of the 13 opponents on the Ravens' regular-season schedule. Today is the Detroit Lions. The Ravens will make their only "Monday Night Football" appearance of the season in Week 15 against the Detroit Lions. The Lions are one of the toughest teams to project entering this season. In 2011, quarterback Matthew Stafford and the Lions passed their way to a 10-6 record before being outgunned by Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints in the playoffs.

Hurricanes blow 'em away Matt Murschel Orlando Sentinel The 2001 Miami Hurricanes were by far the best national champion in the BCS era. They ran over just about everybody, including a talented Nebraska team in the Rose Bowl. Offensively, the 'Canes were led by quarterback Ken Dorsey, who was a Heisman Trophy finalist in both 2001 and 2002. With Clinton Portis, Frank Gore and Willis McGahee at running back and future NFL stars Andre Johnson and Jeremy Shockey lining up as Dorsey's top targets, the Hurricanes put up more than 42 points per game.

Reggie Bush ruined it for everybody — at least maybe for Cam Newton. Bush smiled a lot, seemed like a nice guy and was, in 2005, the best player in college football outside of Vince Young's inner circle. Who, really, can you trust in a cesspool? Bush turned out to be a fraud — except between the lines — and ended up returning his Heisman Trophy while never quite apologizing for putting the school that made him famous on probation. Bush's taint lingered for years, the purgatory ending in June with the NCAA's declaration of major violations against USC, which was penalized with scholarship reductions, a bowl ban and more.

News item: The Ravens face the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday in an important divisional road game after a bruising game against the Jets in New York and a short practice week, but they're still favored by 2 1/2 points. My take: Clearly, rest is overrated …just like the Jets were. News item: Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco repeatedly refused to talk about his infamous Twitter habit during a conference call with Baltimore-area reporters on Wednesday morning and did little to pump up his friendly rivalry with Ray Lewis and the Ravens.

Former USC tailback Reggie Bush on Tuesday became the first athlete in the 75-year history of the Heisman Trophy to forfeit the award, bowing to an increasingly angry clamor from detractors. After five years of staunch denials about wrongdoing, Bush acknowledged he made "mistakes" and talked about the "family" of Heisman winners in a statement posted on the Web site of the New Orleans Saints. "Each individual carries the legacy of the award and each one is entrusted with its good name," Bush said.
