Stuck in neutral throughout the season, the Ravens finally resurrected their running game Sunday. A bright spot for the Ravens during a 23-20 overtime loss to the Bears at Soldier Field was rushing for a season-high 174 yards on 41 carries. Three-time Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice regained his old form as he exploited the Bears' vulnerable run defense, rushing for a season-high 131 yards and one touchdown on 25 carries. Rice displayed speed, power and elusiveness unseen since last season when the Ravens won the Super Bowl . "We're heading in the right direction," Rice said.

BLACKSBURG, Va. - Not since Maryland beat West Virginia at M&T Bank Stadium to start the season 4-0 had senior quarterback C.J. Brown felt as good as he did last week. The concussion Brown sustained at Florida State in early October was the first major setback. It was followed by a string of blows Brown took elsewhere that seemed to slow him down both physically and mentally. But at Lane Stadium, against heavily favored Virginia Tech, Brown finally delivered his own knockout punch Saturday.

Considering what Navy's Keenan Reynolds had done to Hawaii the week before, the South Alabama football team couldn't be blamed for focusing its defensive efforts on the sophomore quarterback Saturday. But the Jaguars forgot to account for Darius Staten. The senior slotback had seven carries for a career-high 127 yards and one touchdown to propel the Midshipmen to a 42-14 rout before an announced 33,086 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Navy scored 32 unanswered points over the final three quarters as a defense missing three starters shut out South Alabama for nearly 40 minutes.

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.
