Old Mill quarterback Grant Enders knew his defense was keeping No. 4 Arundel's no-huddle, spread offense off balance, so he needed to avoid turnovers and come up with a few big plays to pull off a win last night for Anne Arundel County supremacy. Enders delivered with three touchdown passes, including one for 49 yards and another for 53, and the No. 11 Patriots cruised to a 34-19 victory over the host Wildcats. Old Mill has developed big-time playmakers on both sides of the ball, and it is looking to build on last season's appearance in the Class 4A East semifinals.

In the twilight of his football career with the Baltimore Colts, John Unitas was repeatedly asked the question by reporters: How will you feel if your records are broken? Unitas' response was always the same, teammate Bill Curry said. "John would stare at the writers, shrug and say, `The only thing that would bother me is if you stole my beer before I finished it. Then I might cry.'" Career marks meant so little to Baltimore's Hall of Fame quarterback that Unitas wouldn't give a hoot that one of his aerial records is on the ropes, said those who played beside him. Indianapolis' Peyton Manning needs three touchdown passes to break Unitas' franchise mark of 287, set from 1956 to 1972.

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.

The play was cringe-worthy material, but Ravens tight end Todd Heap said he would reserve judgment on whether the helmet-to-helmet blow delivered by New England Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather was a cheap shot. "I really don't have a lot of thoughts about it right now," Heap said after the team's 23-20 overtime loss Sunday at Gillette Stadium. "I haven't seen it yet. I really didn't see him coming or see what happened. So I'll probably have more or better thoughts about it after I see it. " On second-and-7 from the Ravens' 23-yard line in the second quarter, Heap couldn't hang on to a pass over the middle from quarterback Joe Flacco.

1 Colts 17 Ravens 0 After Ravens cornerback Chris McAlister was burned for a 67-yard touchdown pass from Colts quarterback Peyton Manning to wide receiver Marvin Harrison at 9:43, it seemed the air went out of the Ravens' defense. Manning and Harrison, who have combined for 110 career touchdown passes, might not have had one any easier. Manning hooked up with Reggie Wayne for a 22-yard touchdown with 2:43 left in the quarter, and the Colts added a field goal shortly thereafter for a 17-0 lead.

COLLEGE PARK -- After struggling through what he called "unacceptable" performances in the first two games of the season, Maryland football quarterback C.J. Brown declared: "As I go, the offense will go, I understand that. " Said last Tuesday without a hint of bravado, it's about as close to a boast the sixth-year graduate student can muster. Considering the way things started out for Brown and the Terps on Saturday, that statement could have bitten him. But it's also the truth, which, depending on how you look at Brown's performance in a 40-37 defeat to West Virginia (2-1)

Crazy days like Sunday are why America loves football, proof that the NFL is the best reality show going. Heavy snow, at least by Baltimore standards, covered the field before the game and was so thick during it that all the Ravens could see on the other sideline -- and just barely -- were the purple pants worn by the Minnesota Vikings. The air was cold. Limbs were numb. The playing surface was so slick that a Zamboni or three would have come in handy. Mother Nature dominated the first three quarters before hitting the showers so the Ravens and Vikings could play maybe the most exciting fourth quarter in franchise history.

The Ravens had so much luck a year ago that it appeared to all have run out. There was the fourth-and-mile check down pass to Ray Rice in San Diego and the Mile High Miracle pass to Jacoby Jones in the postseason. When the 2013 season began, the Ravens had the early injury to tight end Dennis Pitta and a promising offensive line failed. They couldn't convert on several short yardage situations and head coach John Harbaugh looked like he wouldn't win many challenges until 2014. And then came Sunday.

The state Class 3A football championship figured to be a high-scoring affair with Franklin and Linganore averaging more than 40 points each, but defense took over early and a touchdown pass on fourth-and-20 provided the offensive jolt. Late in the third quarter, Franklin quarterback Jacquez Adams hit Steven Smothers with a 27-yard touchdown pass on that fourth-down play to give the No. 9 Indians a 14-7 edge en route to a 20-7 victory at M&T Bank Stadium for the first state football championship in school history.

The way Saturday's Class 1A state football semifinal started, it appeared Douglass' dream season might come to a screeching halt a game short of the Ducks' goal In a forgettable opening nine minutes against Cambridge-South Dorchester, the Douglass' first three drives stalled on such mistakes as a fourth down sack for a 17-yard loss and a dropped pass that would have gone for a long touchdown. Then, snap over the punter's head set up Cambridge's first touchdown. "We just rallied the guys up after the botched snap," Ducks coach Elwood Townsend said.

Franklin didn't waste any time asserting its speed and athletic advantage over Huntingtown in Friday night's Class 3A state football semifinal. Quarterback Jacquez Adams threw the first of his six touchdown passes 30 yards to Steven Smothers less than five minutes into the game and the No. 11 Indians rolled 49-7 past the Hurricanes in Calvert County. The Indians (11-2) are headed to the state final for the second time in four years and will meet Linganore, from Frederick County, for the Class 3A championship at M&T Bank Stadium on Thursday at 7 p.m. The Lancers, who won the last of their five state titles in 2009, edged No. 13 and two-time defending champion River Hill, 41-38, in Friday's other 3A semifinal.

Entering Saturday's Senior Game against Colonial Athletic Association rival James Madison, No. 7 Towson knew that a berth in the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs was no guarantee after being snubbed last season. Behind a career day from junior running back Terrance West (Northwestern) and several turnovers by James Madison, the Tigers (10-2, 6-2) increased their chances for a first-round bye and a home game in the second round of the FCS playoffs, running to a 28-17 victory at Johnny Unitas Stadium.

It wasn't long after Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco launched a high spiral Sunday that a strong crosswind started affecting the path of the football, forcing wide receiver Jacoby Jones to adjust. Sprinting past New York Jets free safety Ed Reed and rookie cornerback Dee Milliner, Jones angled his route slightly to his left to account for the wind. Jones' quick thinking and speed allowed him to catch a 66-yard touchdown pass in stride during the third quarter of the Ravens' 19-3 victory Sunday over the Jets, a late score that effectively sealed the game.
