ASHBURN, Va. - He was on the verge of escaping. Washington Redskins coach Norv Turner could sense his final media session before the season opener wrapping up. And it was concluding without any use of the words Super Bowl - until the second-to-last question. "I thought we would get through an interview without bringing that up," Turner said with a laugh. He should have known better. The times Turner will make it through an interview without the team's lofty expectations arising will be few and far between this season.

Atholton coach Nancy Shea compared today's girls soccer game between the Raiders and Oakland Mills to Monopoly. "No matter who you're playing, you try to beat your opponent," she said. Even if it is your kin. In today's game, which starts at 3:30 p.m. at Atholton, Shea will coach against her daughter, Megan, who is a junior midfielder for Oakland Mills. As far as the rooting interest of Shea's husband, he naturally leans toward the Scorpions. Don Shea is the boys varsity coach for Oakland Mills, but also helps out first-year coach Susan Rosner with the girls team, which is 0-2-1.

FREEL ALL OVER Ryan Freel started at second base, and by the end of the game he probably wished he had missed the bus. He had a solid game at the plate, bouncing a double over the center-field fence to lead off the first inning and driving in a run with a single in the fourth, but he was hit by pitches in his other two plate appearances and is taking some lumps as he moves around the infield on defense. Freel has not gotten off to a great start at the plate, but the 2-for-2 performance raised his Grapefruit League batting average from .182 to .250.

CLEMSON, S.C. -- It doesn't have the insanity of Duke's Cameron Indoor Stadium or the expanse of North Carolina's Smith Center. Nor does it house the powerhouse teams of the Blue Devils or Tar Heels.But Littlejohn Coliseum has proved a huge obstacle for the Maryland basketball team over the past decade, an obstacle the Terrapins hope to overcome when they play today against Clemson in an Atlantic Coast Conference game."If you're a player, once you walk into a place like Cameron or the Dean Dome, you get fired up," Maryland coach Gary Williams said yesterday.

No. 19 Maryland (1-2) vs. George Washington (2-1)Time: 1:30 p.m.Site: USAir Arena, LandoverTV/Radio: HTS/WBAL (1090 AM)Outlook: The Terps have to shake off a disappointing 50-47 loss to Massachusetts to play the Colonials. They were unable to keep the Minutemen off the offensive glass and paid a steep price. They also need to get their half-court offense out of the deep freeze. Maryland shot 41 percent against UMass, and 26 percent in the second half. The Terps are at their best when they're running, a circumstance that helped them build leads of 16 and 13 points yesterday.

News item: The Ravens could clinch a playoff berth before they take the field for today's late-afternoon game against the Jacksonville Jaguars if the New England Patriots lose their 1 p.m. season finale in Buffalo. My take: That would be nice because there are several banged-up Ravens players who would look good relaxing on the bench all afternoon, but I wouldn't hold my breath. Related news item: Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi is expected to miss today's game against the Bills, and defensive end Richard Seymour is out. My take: Losing two key defensive players would make it that much tougher to win on the road, but I agree with John Harbaugh.

Today's game is going to come down to whether the Ravens' secondary can keep Tony Romo from burning it too often and whether the Cowboys' offensive line can keep Romo in one piece and in the game. It's a tough matchup for the Ravens (the Cowboys are 6-1 this year at home), and, honestly, for the first time in weeks, I think I have to predict against them. I say Dallas wins, 20-17. Here's hoping I once again prove I'm not all that bright. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/cornersportsbar)

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Today's game against the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants can answer a big question about the Ravens. Are they playoff caliber? "I don't know if we worry about that at this point in the season," tight end Todd Heap said. "We're going in to win this game. And we'll let people talk about that after that happens." Said linebacker Ray Lewis: "For us, it's just the next game up. We take the same approach with every game, and the guys do a great job with it."

Judging from the actions of coach Wade Phillips, WR Terrell Owens and CB Adam Jones, the Cowboys are either unraveling in Week 6 or playing an inside joke. This much seems clear: After losing to the Redskins and nearly the Bengals, they aren't the same team that won their first three games decisively. Phillips was so incensed by a reporter's suggestion that Dallas "stunk" against Cincinnati that he stalked off in mid-news conference. Owens went from complaining one week about his number of chances per game to crying in front of the media over the loss of a family member the next.

News item: Ravens rookie Joe Flacco will get an up-close look at superstar QB counterpart Peyton Manning today when the Ravens play the Indianapolis Colts at brand-new Lucas Oil Stadium. My take: Here's hoping he doesn't get an even closer look at All-Pro defensive end Dwight Freeney over the course of the afternoon. News item: The Ravens begin a span of six weeks that features five road games, including the one in Houston that filled in their bye week. My take: That's why today's game might determine how we look at this team for the rest of the season.

It has become known as "the streak," an important lowercase distinction so as not to confuse it with the one crafted by Baltimore sports icon Cal Ripken Jr. and revered by his fans. This one wasn't built by a single man. An entire team can be credited for the 14 straight losses on Sundays - a day of unrest for the Orioles. And that's a streak of a different color. And feel. And sentimentality. At least Ripken's was more easily understood. He willed his body to play in 2,632 games in a row, a phenomenal feat that seemed beyond comprehension at times but certainly could be explained.
