When Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith caught three touchdown passses as a rookie against the St. Louis Rams, receivers coach Jim Hostler told him not to grow accustomed to being that wide open every game. It's been good advice for the former University of Maryland standout. Although the passing connection between quarterback Joe Flacco and Smith has remained productive all season, it's been difficult for them to strike deep on a consistent basis. Smith leads the Ravens with 41 receptions for 753 yards and is averaging 18.4 yards per reception, but has caught just two touchdown passes.

The roots of Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds' development in running out of his team's triple-option offense go back to his own roots outside Nashville, Tenn. On a hot summer day when Reynolds was about 13, he joined his uncle and a group of older athletes Andrew Reynolds was training for a high school track team he coached. "I wasn't sure what to expect, but I'll just say I couldn't finish it," Keenan Reynolds recalled this week. "I was hyperventilating. He didn't take it easy because it was my first time out. He treated me like I was a seasoned vet out there.

When the Ravens signed Elvis Dumervil in the offseason, the expectation was that he and fellow outside linebacker Terrell Suggs would team up to become one of the best pass-rushing tandems in the league. Considering that Suggs was coming off an injury-marred 2012 season in which he had just two sacks and also that Dumervil was being dropped into a new defensive system, those immediate expectations may have seemed a little lofty. But after watching them harass quarterbacks throughout training camp and into the preseason, it was clear to most that the Ravens had something special at the outside linebacker position.

Netflix changed the way people rent movies. Amazon upended the big-box bookstore. Other online retailers grabbed market share in niches as diverse as contact lenses and pet medications. Why not razors? That's the question posed by a Catonsville firm - along with about half a dozen other online upstarts. They're trying to make inroads in a market dominated by Gillette and still largely driven by sales in supermarkets and other brick-and-mortar stores. 800razors.com, the new local competitor, is the brainchild of serial entrepreneurs Philip Masiello and Steven Krane.

The shift back to Eastern Standard Time will soon mean both rush-hour commutes spent in the dark for many of us. With the one-hour shift backward, sunset will arrive before 5 p.m. by Thursday and sunrise will push past 7 a.m. by Nov. 24. The length of daylight meanwhile dips below the 10-hour mark somewhere in between the two, on Nov. 16. But don't fret; it will be early in the near year, around Jan. 7, when it will start staying light past...

Terrance West rushed for 206 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries Saturday, but the junior running back was unavailable late in the No. 7 Towson football team's 32-31 loss to No. 21 Delaware at Johnny Unitas Stadium. West, who has gained 474 yards and eight touchdowns on 86 carries in three meetings with the Blue Hens, appeared to injure his hand while being stopped for no gain on second-and-5 on the Tigers' penultimate series of the game. He returned two plays later to run for 16 yards, but did not play again during the fourth quarter.

Morgan State ranks second in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference against the pass, allowing just 146.1 yards per game through the air. But the lofty ranking masks a troubling issue. The Bears (2-6, 2-2 MEAC) have just 11 sacks this season, fewest in the league. At their current rate, they are on pace to finish 2013 with 16 1/2 sacks. The defense failed to get to Howard junior quarterback Greg McGhee during Morgan State's 28-14 loss to the Bison last Saturday, and coach Donald Hill-Eley said passers like McGhee are becoming faster and more adept at getting the ball out of their hands.

Terrance West became the Towson football program's career rushing leader with a career-high 272 yards on 29 carries in Saturday's 48-32 victory over Richmond. To some degree, the junior running back owes a good deal of his success to the five guys who open holes for him. Senior left tackle Eric Pike, senior left guard Anthony Davis, senior center Doug Shaw, freshman right guard Sam Evans and senior right tackle Randall Harris have helped the No. 8 Tigers rank 14th in the Football Championship Subdivision in rushing, averaging 237.9 yards and scoring a nation-best 32 touchdowns on the ground.

Noah Copeland and Chris Swain were stretching together during a practice early last week when Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo approached his top two fullbacks with a little pep talk. "Coach Niumat kind of called us out, told us we need to show up," Copeland recalled this week. "We kind of talked about that in the hotel [on Friday before facing Toledo], that we need to ball this game, and they're going to probably need us. We went out there with a different mentality. We just kept running and doing what we could do. " By the time Copeland and Swain were finished, they had combined for more yards in a game than any pair of Navy fullbacks in three seasons.

Brandon Cherry finished what Stuart Walters started. Walters, a freshman running back, rushed nine times for 121 yards and two touchdowns in the first half, and Cherry, a sophomore, gained 90 yards on eight carries in the second half to power No. 14 Johns Hopkins to a 42-17 thumping of Dickinson before an announced 1,150 in a Centennial Conference matchup at Homewood Field on Friday night. Walters scored on runs of 49 and 44 yards, with the latter making him the first freshman to eclipse the 100-yard mark since Andrew Case did it twice in 2006.
