Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison tied Steve Young and Jerry Rice for the NFL record of most touchdown passes between a quarterback and a receiver with their 85th connection yesterday. The only question left for the Indianapolis duo is what the final records will be when they quit playing. "It kind of hits me knowing the fact it's still early in both our careers," Harrison said after the Colts beat Tennessee, 31-10. "You just never know when it's going to end or what it's going to be when it's done.

TAMPA, FLA. -- With a jab step and a quick cut, Ravens rookie wide receiver Michael Campanaro gained separation behind Tampa Bay Buccaneers nickel back Leonard Johnson. Then, Campanaro leapt over Johnson in the back of the end zone on Sunday to secure a lob from quarterback Joe Flacco during the first half of the Ravens 48-17 rout of the Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium. "I was running the seam," Campanaro said. "We had single-high coverage and Joe put it right where it needed to be, and I made a play.

Ravens rookie wide receiver Marlon Brown identified a weak spot in the Minnesota Vikings' zone coverage scheme, and capitalized on it for the game-winning touchdown Sunday. When Brown darted behind Vikings middle linebacker Audie Cole , he caught a perfectly-placed lob from quarterback Joe Flacco for a 9-yard touchdown pass with four seconds remaining during the Ravens' 29-26 win Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium. The 6-foot-5, 205-pound undrafted free agent secured the football, then dragged his feet inbounds at the back of the end zone.

TAMPA, FLA. -- Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith knelt in the end zone Sunday afternoon, pausing for a moment to pray after catching a slant pass from Joe Flacco in stride for a touchdown. The former Maryland standout was in a thankful mood during a resurgent game after arguably the roughest stretch of his career. One week after his dropped pass ended a late comeback attempt against the Indianapolis Colts, Smith was jubilant during the Ravens' 48-17 blowout victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium.

Running back LeGarrette Blount was traded to New England only in April, so Sunday's game at M&T Bank Stadium was his first against the Ravens in Patriots colors. But after a 7-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, Blount stirred the echoes of earlier Patriots-Ravens classics with a dance move you've probably seen before at M&T Bank Stadium. Surprised Blount cribbed Ray Lewis' signature gyrations at the stadium where he once played? Then you don't know Blount. Clearly . (GIF via SB Nation .)

Maybe Tony Sacca was right after all. Maybe Penn State coach Joe Paterno needed to give his senior quarterback a little freedom, a chance to throw the ball more than once a millennium.Consider what happened in last night's 34-22 victory over eighth-ranked Georgia Tech in the Kickoff Classic at Giants Stadium. Considering what Sacca and the No. 7 Nittany Lions did, maybe Penn State's offense finally has come into the '90s.Sacca, who never had thrown more than three touchdown passes in a college game, threw five against the defenseless Yellow Jackets.

There's a pretty solid chance that the Ravens' scouting report on the Indianapolis Colts' offense includes a few bolded reminders about how dangerous wide receiver T.Y. Hilton can be as a deep threat. Hilton is one of the fastest wide receivers in the NFL, having run the 40-yard dash in 4.34 seconds. “We just can't let him take the top off the defense,” Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees said. Hilton emerged last season as a pivotal figure in the Colts' offense, catching a career-high 82 passes for 1,083 yards and six touchdowns.

The Elgard Trophy, given to the winner of the oldest high school football rivalry in Howard County, brought out the best in No. 9 Howard and No. 14 Glenelg on Thursday night - especially in the last quarter. The thrilling conclusion came on a 27-yard touchdown toss from senior quarterback Kevin Sheahin to Dylan Perez with 23 seconds remaining in the game to give the host Lions (5-0) a 20-15 victory. Those heroics were preceded by plenty of other clutch plays, including Glenelg senior Brent Richardson's 5-yard touchdown run running behind Florida State-bound blue chip lineman David Robbins with just over a minute left in regulation.

COLLEGE PARK -  In two straight games, Maryland running back Brandon Ross has taken a short screen pass, maneuvered through traffic and outrun the defense for a long touchdown down the left sideline. Ross fumbled three times during the Terps' first two games and has shared playing time in recent weeks. But the 5-foot-10, 205-pound junior has made some big plays when called upon. Ross, who ran for 776 yards last year, had five catches for 50 yards against West Virginia on Sept.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Monday praised Joe Flacco's decision-making, especially his ability to deliver the ball quickly when under pressure on third down, as one of the things that contributed to one of the quarterback's better games in recent memory. Flacco threw for 327 yards and three touchdowns with a quarterback rating of 137.4 in the Ravens' 38-10 win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, with a good chunk of that production coming on third down. “He made plays, and especially third down-and-long plays when he had pressure coming at him,” Harbaugh said.

It probably wouldn't have made a difference even if Panthers quarterback Cam Newton had not delivered a strike to the left corner of the end zone. No one from the Ravens' secondary was in position to challenge the pass Sunday as Newton hit rookie wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin for a 28-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Free safety Darian Stewart reacted far too late after cornerback Jimmy Smith had the initial coverage on Benjamin and released him to Stewart. For the second consecutive game, the Ravens had a botched coverage because of a mix-up in coverage responsibilities.

For about 31/2 quarters Saturday, No. 14 Loyola hung with DeMatha, thanks to its passing game and a solid defensive effort against a bigger, more experienced team. Near the end of the game, however, just about everything went DeMatha's way. The Stags, ranked No. 2 by The Washington Post, scored 22 points in the final 7:35 to take a 45-31 victory over the Dons in the I-95 Kickoff Classic at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium in the season opener for both teams. First-year starting quarterback Mike Fafaul was 17-for-37 passing for 226 yards and three touchdowns, but the Stags' Jordan Lomax intercepted him and ran 70 yards for a touchdown that all but sealed the win, giving the Stags a 38-24 lead with 6:13 to go. Desmond Williams added an 8-yard touchdown run less than three minutes later, boosting the lead to 45-24 with 3:33 left.
