There is nothing fancy about Cleveland's offense. There are few gimmick or trick plays, they don't spread teams out with a lot of packages and the running game is pretty basic. But if the Ravens are to beat the Browns on Sunday in Cleveland, one of the top priorities is to slow that running game. It's a lot harder than it seems. "They're young with two rookies back there, but they run hard and they're different runners," said Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata of running backs Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell.

CHARLESTON, Ill. - Towson's Terrance West had no idea he had set a record. "I did? Records don't mean nothing. Our focus is on a national championship," he said.

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.

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.

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.

Whichever direction Buffalo Bills running backs Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller chose on Sunday, they left behind a trail of cleat marks and fallen defenders as they mercilessly pounded the football against the Ravens' traditionally stout defense. During a 23-20 loss to the Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium, the Ravens allowed 203 rushing yards as Buffalo set an opponent franchise record with 55 rushing attempts. The yardage is the fifth-most allowed by the Ravens in franchise history. "That sounds ugly," defensive lineman Chris Canty said.

Ray Rice knifed through the heart of the New England Patriots defense, into the end zone and into our collective memories, his 83-yard touchdown run in the 2009 playoffs quickly becoming one of the most unforgettable plays in Ravens history and in his young career. On that frigid afternoon in Foxborough, Rice rushed for 159 yards and two touchdowns, carrying the Ravens offense and their hobbled quarterback, Joe Flacco, to a stunning wild-card win. It was the only time in eight career playoff games that Rice topped 70 rushing yards, and his two fumbles in Sunday's win over the Indianapolis Colts gave him five for his postseason career.

Fourteen years ago on the outskirts of Ann Arbor, Mich., an 8-year old boy learned to be a football player. In the blistering heat of summer, the boy climbed and descended the concrete steps of Eastern Michigan's Rynearson Stadium, past empty bleachers as sweat dripped down his face. After, he would run route after route on the field, sprinting and chasing his older brother. As the young running back worked, his father watched, giving instruction. For years, through high school, the boy, Travis Davidson, would run those steps and those routes, never fully grasping why his father had him do this.
