One of my favorite assignments in the past year or so was the feature I did this week on former Dunbar and West Virginia star Tavon Austin, who for weeks has had talent evaluators in NFL organizations and in the media salivating about what he might do in the pros. One quote from my story really summed Austin up nicely. “I think the teams that view him conventionally as a slot receiver are being short-sighted,” Greg Cosell of NFL Films, whose opinion I respect, told me two weeks ago. “The teams that see him as the ultimate chess piece that can be moved all around and aligned everywhere on the formation are the teams that will get it right.” Now that we know that Tavon is heading to St. Louis, let's take a look at how he will fit with the Rams.

We knew there was a decent chance the Ravens would be 1-1 as they headed into St. Louis to take on the Rams in Week 3, but I'm guessing that few of us thought that loss would come against the Titans. But that disappointing 26-13 letdown is in the rearview mirror -- at least it better be for the men in black and purple -- as the Ravens play the Rams on Sunday at another challenging road stadium. The 0-2 Rams are an inferior team in terms of talent. The Ravens can't afford to give away another win. Here are five significant storylines to follow from your sofas as the Ravens play the Rams on Sunday: 1. Who will Joe Flacco throw the ball to?

About New Mexico: The Lobos are successful because of a strong ground game (227.0 ypg,, 11th in the nation) and a stout defense (317.2 ypg, 18th in the nation). TB DonTrell Moore (119.8, 19 TDs) is one of the best at his position in the West. New Mexico has been excellent against the run (80.4 ypg, fourth in the nation)

After getting badly outcoached and outplayed last week in Tennessee, the Ravens return to their comfort zone in St. Louis today. They face a weak NFC West team with a one-dimensional offense and a bad defense. The Rams are no match for the Ravens. And only the Ravens can keep the Rams in this game. But don't expect it to happen. Here are three reasons why Baltimore wins handily in the Edward Jones Dome: 1) The Ravens will run the ball and control the clock against a defense that is last in the NFL against the rush.

The biggest question lingering over every NFC West team concerns the most important position — quarterback. Whether it's the Cardinals' Matt Leinart, the 49ers' Alex Smith, the Seahawks' Matt Hasselbeck or the Rams' Sam Bradford, uncertainty abounds. Hasselbeck is the most experienced of the bunch and got the Seahawks to the Super Bowl in 2005, but his health is an issue as he has missed 11 games the last two seasons. Smith, the No. 1 pick overall in 2005, will get another chance to show he's worthy of the job. This will be the first time in his pro career that he will have the same offensive coordinator in consecutive seasons.

St. Louis Rams star running back Steven Jackson wasn't ruled out of Monday's game against the New York Giants until about two hours before kickoff, when his on-field workout didn't produce the necessary comfort level for the player or his team. A decision on whether Jackson (quadriceps injury) will play Sunday could again be made late, but don't expect the Ravens to be sitting around and fretting over whether they'll have to tackle Jackson or his backups, Cadillac Williams and Jerious Norwood.

Let's be real here, rushing offense never figured to be a primary weapon in the Rams' quest to beat the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. With linebacker Ray Lewis as the cork, Baltimore plugs holes and stuffs running backs as well as any team in the NFL. The Ravens come to St. Louis with a 1-1 record, having beaten Pittsburgh and falling to Tennessee. Those teams feature Rashard Mendenhall (Steelers) and Chris Johnson (Titans) respectively, two backs who combined for more than 2,600 yards last season.

Furor over the New York Giants' questionable tactic of faking injuries notwithstanding, the Ravens are concentrating their defensive efforts on neutralizing the St. Louis Rams' no-huddle offense. "It's going to be interesting," seven-time Pro Bowl free safety Ed Reed said. "Playing last week helped us out a lot. It's not like we haven't been practicing for it, because we have. But it's just going to be a little bit more up-tempo, which requires everybody's attention. " In Monday night's 28-16 loss to the Giants, St. Louis went to the hurry-up style 11 times, all in the first half.

In his first comments since his dropped backwards pass resulted in a New York Giants touchdown, running back Cadillac Williams made no excuses. "It was just a bonehead move by me, just knowing whenever it's a lateral like that, you've got to be aware and get on the ball," Williams said Thursday. "Just a bonehead move by me. " On third-and-8 from the New York 25, quarterback Sam Bradford attempted to throw a quick screen to Williams near the left sideline. But because of pressure from the edge by the Giants' defense, Bradford had to throw the pass backwards to reach Williams.

Raiders poised Ken Murray Baltimore Sun Five new teams made the playoffs this season — down from six the year before — and there is no shortage of candidates for 2011, if there is a 2011 season. Perennials such as the Cowboys, Giants and Chargers will contend. Several other teams just need a competent quarterback to get back, including the Dolphins, Titans, Cardinals and Vikings. But the teams that intrigue me most are the Bucs, Rams, Texans and Raiders.
