Santonio Holmes had just one catch last Sunday and three the week before that, but if you are worried that the Ravens might overlook the New York Jets' speedy wide receiver Sunday night, you obviously have a selective memory. Ravens defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano does not. "He's been a Raven killer," Pagano said. "My nightmares, when I wake up in the middle of the night sweating, it's because I think of '08, the three losses [to the Pittsburgh Steelers]. He had a hand in all of them.

Nose tackle Haloti Ngata was again the only Ravens player sidelined from practice Thursday, and he appears headed for another game-time decision Sunday. Ngata sat out the Ravens' 23-20 overtime loss to the Chicago Bears last Sunday because of a knee injury sustained the previous week against the Cincinnati Bengals. Ngata has not practiced in nearly two weeks. Tight end Dennis Pitta , who returned to practice Wednesday after a nearly four-month absence because of a discloated and fractured right hip, also practiced Thursday.

1 Santonio Holmes hurts Ravens again. The Pittsburgh wide receiver has scored a touchdown in five straight games against the Ravens, reaching the end zone a total of six times. Holmes has put a dent in the Ravens' secondary with touchdowns of 38, 59 and 65 yards. 2 Joe Flacco continues to struggle against Steelers. In his past two meetings with Pittsburgh, Flacco completed 41 percent of his passes and threw five interceptions. He hasn't thrown a touchdown in three straight games, the longest drought of his career.

A reoccurring topic on this blog has been the lack of successful deep balls for Joe Flacco and the Ravens. Former offensive coordinator Cam Cameron tailored the offense to Flacco's powerful right arm and Jim Caldwell kept plenty of deep balls on his play card after he replaced Cameron last December. So far this season, though, Flacco hasn't been clicking with his outside receivers, particularly Torrey Smith, as often. Flacco has completed just three of his 17 attempts beyond 20 yards, according to Pro Football Focus.

1 Ravens 0 Steelers 0 As expected, the defenses came out slugging and dominated the first quarter. The Steelers forced Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco to go 0-for-3 with one interception by Ryan Clark with 3:07 left. The Ravens' best play was a 46-yard punt return by Jim Leonhard, who picked up the ball inside the Ravens' 10-yard line after it had been bouncing around and escaped to take it past midfield. 2 Ravens 6 Steelers 3 Both teams began moving the ball in the second quarter, and the Ravens were able to capitalize on Leonhard's 46-yard punt return as the first quarter ended to take a 3-0 lead at the 12:30 mark on a field goal by Matt Stover.

Despite being cut before the start of the Ravens training camp, former Baltimore wide receiver Derrick Mason has played well for the Jets, and had six catches in New York's loss to Oakland on Sunday. Mason will be one of three receivers the Ravens have to stop Sunday night here at M&T Bank Stadium. The other two are Plaxico Burress and Santonio Holmes. Mason is tied with two other receivers for third in receptions with ten. "Not having the OTA's and all that kind of stuff, we kind of just threw him to the wolves, so to speak," said Jets coach Rex Ryan.

Carr has speed and has improved since the start of the season, but he isn't very physical.

PITTSBURGH - When the Steelers made their last successful Super Bowl run after the 2005 season, Antwaan Randle El - the multitalented wide receiver and special teams player - made a handful of key plays that propelled Pittsburgh through the postseason. But after throwing a touchdown pass in the Steelers' Super Bowl win over the Seattle Seahawks, Randle El left for the Washington Redskins as a free agent during the offseason, and the Steelers immediately moved to fill the gap with first-round draft pick Santonio Holmes.

The Ravens have another destination spot besides New Meadowlands Stadium on Monday night. Based on how the players are talking, the Ravens plan to take some trips to Revis Island. That's the area of the field covered by Darrelle Revis , one of the top NFL cornerbacks. "We don't feel like we have to shy away from anybody," Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin said. "As an offense, we're going to do what we do best, and that's just go out and play football. " Revis made six interceptions and broke up 31 passes last season, which prompted several teams to avoid throwing in his direction.

Jets 27, Bills 20 Strategy: Buffalo, led by first-year coach Doug Marrone, is in the process of tailoring its offense to the skills of rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel. The Bills used read-option runs, rollouts and play-action bootlegs to take advantage of Manuel's mobility. They often put Manuel in the shotgun and relied on shorter throws before taking more shots deep as Sunday's loss to the Jets went on. Defensively, they have a hybrid front, which makes sense because they seem to change their scheme - and their personnel - every offseason.

Released by the Ravens this summer, Derrick Mason may already be wearing out his welcome in New York. According to a report by Rich Cimini of ESPN New York , the Jets receiver played sparingly in Sunday's 30-21 loss to the New England Patriots “because of his mouth.” After the Ravens roughed up the Jets in Week 4, Mason was critical of his offense , telling reporters, "Obviously, there are some things that need to change.” ...

The New York Jets' wide receiving corps boasts a speedster in Santonio Holmes, a red-zone target in Plaxico Burress and a technician in Derrick Mason. But none of those guys leads the Jets in receiving. That honor goes to tight end Dustin Keller, who has caught 16 passes for 249 yards and two touchdowns. The 6-foot-2, 250-pound Keller has become the focus of New York's aerial plan - and the target of the Ravens' defensive strategy. “He's their leading receiver,” inside linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo said.

The Ravens unofficially freed up salary cap space when they announced that they were releasing a quartet of veteran contributors, fueling speculation that the team was gearing up to make a splash in free agency. Late Tuesday afternoon, the Ravens re-signed offensive tackle Marshal Yanda to a five-year deal. Sports Illustrated reported the contract was worth $32 million. That might not have been the cannonball some fans hoped the Ravens would make in the free-agent pool, but Yanda was the team's top offseason priority . His annual cap number -- a little over $6 million a year -- is manageable (it might have been higher had the Ravens not moved quickly to get Yanda under contract)

Like many free agents who are stuck in NFL lockout limbo, Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes must wait for a resolution in the labor dispute before he can make his next move. A restricted free agent at the moment, Holmes is expected to become unrestricted once a new collective bargaining agreement is released. "It's out of my hands," Holmes said over the weekend . "I'm a free agent this year. Whatever my agent brings to the table -- the best deal for me -- I'm pretty sure that's where we'll end up. " Assuming they can swing it financially in the aftermath of labor Armageddon, the Ravens should go hard after Holmes if he decides to leave New York, where he spent the 2010 season.
