Jeff Zrebiec, reporter: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers stink -- let's get that out of the way first. But the Ravens still needed an offensive performance like this on the road. It was extremely beneficial to get Torrey Smith going, and also to incorporate a couple of more targets, like Michael Campanaro and Kamar Aiken, into the offense. Not to be outdone, the defense played well until it let down in the second half. They got a rare interception from a defensive back and a rare - at least lately - sack from Terrell Suggs.

When the Ravens signed three free agents in the offseason to boost their offense, only the acquisition of veteran receiver Steve Smith seemed to create a buzz around town. After six games, all three additions and center Jeremy Zuttah have had a significant impact, but none greater than Smith. He gave the Ravens two elements they were missing from last season - a go-to receiver who could work the entire field, and a hard-nose veteran with a strong work ethic Smith has 35 catches for 573 yards and four touchdowns so far this year.

Some sports name three stars of the game after the game. I'll do that one better: I'm going to name them before the Ravens even play. These will be the three stars when the Ravens travel to Tampa Bay to face the Buccaneers on Sunday. 1. Tight end Owen Daniels When Daniels caught a pair of scores on play-action passes in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the football world collectively slapped its head, as if to say: "Why didn't we think of that?" Daniels was a frequent red-zone target for Gary Kubiak when the Ravens offensive coordinator was in Houston, and the plays he scored on were textbook Kubiak sets.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh woke up Monday and watched the tape from Sunday's game again. It was even more enjoyable than witnessing it from his spot on the sideline. "It was a lot more fun watching the tape … when I already know the outcome," said Harbaugh, a day after the Ravens had one of their most explosive offensive performances in team history and routed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 48-17 at Raymond James Stadium. "But any time you see a touchdown, it's fun. It's a joy, it's just a great feeling.

The NFL didn't return to Baltimore in 1993, when it passed over the city and awarded expansion franchises to Charlotte and Jacksonville. Now, Baltimore apparently has a chance to get either the Los Angeles Rams or Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Which team do you want? Or are you fed up with the NFL's snubbing the city and prefer that the league stay out of Baltimore? The results will run next Friday.To respond, call Sundial, The Baltimore Sun's telephone information service, at (410) 936-5028; in Carroll County, (410)

TAMPA, Fla. -- Jason Campbell's debut at quarterback for the Washington Redskins began yesterday with Brandon Lloyd dropping a potential 50-yard completion on the team's first play from scrimmage against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium. While Campbell later threw the first two touchdown passes of his NFL career -- the first of which came on a 3-yarder to tight end Chris Cooley to give Washington a rare third-quarter lead -- the afternoon ended pretty much the same as most games have this season for the Redskins (3-7)

TAMPA, FLA. -- NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has several other issues going on right now, but there is another one he needs to address. The quality of play in the league continues to drop off, and it was certainly evident Sunday as the Ravens routed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 48-17. League loyalists like to talk about parity, but some of these games and teams have become an embarrassment, and several are still on the Ravens schedule like Atlanta, which struggles to win a game on the road, and Jacksonville, which finds it hard to win anywhere.

TAMPA, FLA. - Inside the locker room late Sunday afternoon, Ravens outside linebacker Pernell McPhee had a blunt take on the defense's rough treatment of Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon. “He's going to be pretty sore,” McPhee said while smiling at his handiwork, which included one sack. During the Ravens' 48-17 win at Raymond James Stadium, the defense sacked Glennon a season-high five times and hit him 15 times. The amount of sacks equaled their previous season total entering Sunday's game.

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.

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.

Torrey Smith learned a valuable lesson in his rookie season that is serving him well. The Ravens' second-round pick out of the University of Maryland in 2011, Smith struggled badly in his first NFL training camp and then was held without a catch in the first two regular-season games. The chatter had already started that he was the latest in a long line of wide receivers drafted by the Ravens who would never fulfill their potential. Smith quieted such talk with a three-touchdown, 152-yard receiving performance in Week Three against the St. Louis Rams.

The Ravens, at first glance, appear to have gotten better at center after trading Sunday for Jeremy Zuttah . Zuttah, a 2008 third-round pick, is an established veteran, having started 76 games for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during his six-year NFL career. After bouncing around between both guard positions and the center spot, Zuttah was mostly a center for the Buccaneers in recent years. But while he should be an upgrade over Gino Gradkowski, it is no sure thing he will stabilize the position.
