Breaking down each aspect of the Ravens' Week 6 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium. PASSING GAME RAVENS: In three starts at home, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has completed 63.9 percent of his pass attempts and thrown six touchdown passes and one interception. In two starts on the road, he's completed 59.4 of his passes with one touchdown and two interceptions. The Ravens' quest to become a better road team starts with Flacco getting off to quicker starts and the offensive line doing a better job of protecting him. The Ravens are optimistic that today could be the day for wide receiver Torrey Smith's breakout.

Missouri Comets (1-3) at Blast (2-0) When: 7:35 p.m. Saturday Where: 1 s t Mariner Arena Video: B2TV.com Outlook:   Balanced scoring and strong goalkeeping from veteran Sagu have played big parts in the Blast's 2-0 start.  The team has gotten a point from 12 different players — Machel Millwood leading the way with seven points — and Sagu was particularly strong at Omaha where he had a 21-save performance in a 15-10 win...

Breaking down the American League Division Series matchup between the Orioles and Tigers, which begins Thursday at Camden Yards: How they got here Tigers: They had to scratch and claw to win their fourth straight American League Central title. The Tigers were 90-72 this season and didn't secure the division until they won Sunday. They may have the most formidable rotation in baseball, with the last three AL Cy Young Award winners. Their offense isn't shabby either, with the specter of two-time reigning AL Most Valuable Player Miguel Cabrera always looming.

Milwaukee Wave (5-1)@Blast (5-1) Time: Saturday, 7:35 p.m. Site: 1 s t Mariner Arena Online: B2TV.com Outlook: First place in the Major Indoor Soccer League is on the line as the league's most storied franchises meet for the first time this season.

Jeff Zrebiec breaks down each area of the Ravens' Week 4 home game against the Carolina Panthers:  PASSING GAME RAVENS: All eyes will be on wide receiver Steve Smith, who faces the organization he played with for 13 seasons. While Joe Flacco will undoubtedly look to get Smith the ball early, he needs receivers Torrey Smith, Jacoby Jones and Marlon Brown to be more involved in the passing game. That trio has combined for just 10 catches this season. Flacco has not been sacked in two straight games, but with left tackle Eugene Monroe sidelined, his blindside will now be protected by undrafted rookie James Hurst.

RAVENS PASSING GAME: In the victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, Joe Flacco played safe and efficient football. Expect more of the same as the Ravens want him to avoid the slow starts that plagued him on the road last year. Steve Smith and the two tight ends have been extremely productive, but the Ravens need to get Torrey Smith, Jacoby Jones and Marlon Brown more involved. Smith will probably draw Joe Haden, the Browns' top corner. Steve Smith has been targeted 25 times in two games.

RAVENS PASSING GAME: As much as he's struggled against the Cincinnati Bengals, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has flourished in recent years against the Steelers, throwing eight touchdown passes and just one interception in his past seven games against them. Flacco threw the ball 62 times Sunday. That's certainly not the recipe offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak wants to rely on. Steve Smith and Dennis Pitta both had big games against the Bengals, but Ravens receivers dropped eight passes.

PASSING RAVENS: This will be Joe Flacco's 13th game against the Bengals, but the quarterback will present Cincinnati with a different look. In Gary Kubiak's offense, Flacco will use more play-action and try to get the ball out quicker. It should help him limit mistakes, which he often has made against the Bengals, who have 15 interceptions against him. Flacco has more weapons than ever before, and the Bengals will provide a good test of how much the Ravens passing game has progressed.

HOUSTON - When he became the first black manager in the Major Leagues the 1975 as a player/manager with the Cleveland Indians, Orioles Hall of Famer Frank Robinson was shocked to see that the Indians still specified a player's race on their scouting reports. Yes, Robinson - who as a player won two World Series titles as a player with the Orioles and won the 1966 Triple Crown - broke down the barrier for future black managers, but was immediately struck with the realizations of how some things still needed changing.

Editor's note: Each week, InsideMdSports.com provides this blog with a Maryland recruiting feature that previously appeared as premium content on its site. It took one viewing of Class of 2015 guard prospect Malik Ellison to see his versatile skill set and potential, but it was the third viewing of Ellison this year in which he was finally able to put his entire game together. The junior wing from Life Center Academy (N.J.) had a big game against Maryland commit Jared Nickens and Westtown on Saturday as he exploded for a very efficient 22 points.

The folks at Deadspin received an interesting artifact on Thursday -- a 1978 scouting report of Cal Ripken Jr., then a pitcher at Aberdeen. The report, written by Pirates scout Joe Consoli, includes such gems as "plays SS, but lack of fluid mobility will limit prospect here" (Ripken won two Gold Gloves at shortstop) and "can hit" (with Ripken's 3,184 hits and 431 homers, the scout nailed that one). Consoli also noted that Ripken had an "intense desire to play," which fits given the Iron Man's streak of 2,632 games played.
