Every Wednesday, I'll serve up five stats you should know heading into that week's Ravens game. This week's stats, pertaining to Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, focus on what the Ravens do well and what the Buccaneers don't - which is kind of a lot. 30 - The Buccaneers have the ignominy of ranking 30th in the league in total offense and total defense. The latter is dragged down by the Thursday night dismantling at the hands of the Atlanta Falcons a few weeks ago, but this is a team that's really struggling on both sides of the ball.

Lisa Spicknall, the state director of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, claims that "statistics show people drive impaired 87 times before they are caught by police" ( "Olympian Michael Phelps arrested for drunken driving a second time," Sept. 30). How can The Sun print such malarkey? It is ridiculous on its face. Did anyone inquire from what venerable study this stat was plucked - or whether (more likely) she just conjured it up from thin air?

Each Wednesday, blogger Matt Vensel will highlight five statistics that really mean something for the Ravens. 55.0 -- Joe Flacco's completion percentage in his last four starts, three of which were outside of Baltimore. You could probably dig up dozens of noteworthy stats about the struggles of quarterback Joe Flacco the past few weeks, particularly his struggles on the road. There is no question he has been inefficient after his hot start. In Flacco's first four games, he completed 63.5 percent of his attempts and averaged 8.13 yards per attempt.

Here are some interesting numbers involving Baltimore's United Cable system:* By year's end, the company hopes to reach or at least come close to the 100,000-subscriber level. Yet by the end of 1991, that level is projected to grow just to 110,000. By the time the system reaches "maturity" in five years, the projection is for only 130,000 subscribers. (There are a little less than 300,000 residences in the city.)* Now, a little more than one in every three residences gaining access to cable subscribes.

Every Wednesday, I'll serve up five stats you should know heading into that week's Ravens game. This week's stats, pertaining to Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, are based on just two games and could be misleading, but either way, here they are. 5.09 - Through two games, the Ravens' running backs are averaging 5.09 yards per carry. Bernard Pierce and Justin Forsett padded those stats late in Thursday's win over the Steelers, but a number around two yards per carry better than last year's team rate has to be just what the Ravens signed up for when they brought in offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak.

Pernell McPhee has never operated in the spotlight on the Ravens defense, but the fourth-year outside linebacker has carved out an effective place in the rotation by both feeding on those who hog the attention, and at times, taking it away from them. With the Ravens thin on the defensive line and with stars Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil no longer every-down rushers, McPhee has seen time at both outside linebacker positions, defensive end, and nose tackle. He's not being shoehorned into the defense out of necessity, though.

Thank you for having the courage to question the feminist default by running the commentary which questions the math for rape stats not adding up ( "Do the math: rape stats don't add up," Sept. 26). This is the sort of courage that has been sorely lacking in the media over the last 50 years and has led us into such a one-sided Mobius strip mentality when it comes to the issues of men and women. Please do keep questioning. This is a vital role for the media to play and it has been missing in action for too many years.

You've heard the statistics: one in four women will be raped in college Or is it " sexually assaulted or almost sexually assaulted"? Or is it "nearly one in five"? Or "one in six"? According to the White House, a rape epidemic is sweeping college campuses , with the #YesAllWomen campaign calling all men weapons of mass destruction. Let's look at some facts. According to the FBI "[t]he rate of forcible rapes in 2012 was estimated at 52.9 per 100,000 female inhabitants.

Every Wednesday, I'll serve up five stats you should know heading into that week's Ravens game. This week's stats, pertaining to Sunday's game against Carolina, will likely get lost in the shuffle, and by shuffle I mean incessant discussion of Steve Smith. 14 --  Panthers tight end Greg Olson averages 14 yards per reception (16 catches for 224 yards with a pair of touchdowns) through three games, and he could give the Ravens pass defense big problems. Before he dislocated his elbow, Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eiffert found space underneath, and Steelers tight end Heath Miller exploited the inside zone a few times as well in Week 2. Olson is the most reliable pass catcher remaining in Carolina, and a healthy Olson could victimize the Ravens in the middle of the defense.

Every Monday, I'll unpack the stats behind the previous day's Ravens game. If the day after the game is anything like yesterday was, I think we'll opt for Tuesday. And if the team plays on Thursday, it will likely be Friday. But I swear that most weeks, it will be Monday. All stats courtesy of Pro Football Focus. Rookie wall The Ravens used their first three picks on defensive players expected to help the overall speed on that side of the ball, but only first-round pick C.J. Mosley saw much of the field.

Each Wednesday, blogger Jon Meoli highlights five stats that really mean something for the Ravens. Seven - Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was picked off seven times in two games against Baltimore, representing over a third of his regular season total of 21. Dalton has thrown 11 career interceptions against the Ravens, the most of any opponent. His 62.4 passer rating in six career games against the Ravens is third-worst against any team he has faced, and well down from his career mark of 85.7.
