In just two games, Ed Reed already leads the Ravens in interceptions, collecting his third of the season in the team's 26-10 win against the Miami Dolphins Sunday. In fact, the six-time Pro Bowl free safety has almost as many interceptions as the rest of his teammates, who have four between cornerbacks Chris Carr and Lardarius Webb , inside linebacker Ray Lewis and safety Ken Hamlin . After Sunday's contest, NFL Network analyst and former Ravens cornerback Deion Sanders called Reed "the best safety in the game.

Left-hander Wei-Yin Chen, who will get Monday's Game 3 start, said through an interpreter that he's not considering the importance of the game or where it might rank in his career. “For me, I want to keep it simple. It doesn't matter to me whether we're ahead or behind,” said Chen, who hasn't pitched since allowing five runs in 3 2/3 innings on Oct. 3 in Game 2 of the American League Division Series against the Tigers. “My job is to go out and pitch a good game. It doesn't change whether it's 0-2 or 2-0.” There are two things in Chen's favor heading into Monday night.

The NFL has suspended Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather for two games for an illegal hit on Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith. Meriweather was penalized for a personal foul for hitting a defenseless receiver in the head and neck area when he struck Smith in the second quarter Saturday night during the Ravens' 23-17 victory. Smith was unhurt on the play. Meriweather also hit Ravens running back Bernard Pierce in the head, causing a concussion and forcing him out of the game, but it was a legal hit. This marks Meriweather's sixth violation of unnecessary roughness rules regarding hits to defenseless players and impermissible use of the helmet.

The words delivered in the Orioles clubhouse after another jaw-busting, late-inning loss to the Kansas City Royals in the American League Championship Series belied the otherwise eerie silence that punctuated the room. Bounce around from player to player after Saturday's 6-4 loss in Game 2 and, no matter who you talk to, the refrain remains the same. It's only two losses. These Orioles are great on the road. They have overcome so much adversity, what's a little more? “It's tough, it's a hole,” Orioles reliever Darren O'Day said.

Cal Ripken has two games remaining in a season of streaks that could produce a total of seven all-time defensive records.With only three errors in 159 games, Ripken is on the verge of breaking two marks set last year by Toronto's Tony Fernandez. Fernandez committed only six errors for a .992 fielding percentage -- both of which represent major-league records for a shortstop.Ripken currently is fielding .996 and, at his current pace (4.25 chances per game), has the luxury of being able to make two errors and still break both of Fernandez's records.

Last season, Washington goalie Jim Carey experienced accomplishment overload. For the Capitals, he was Mr. Clutch.Called up from the minors, he went on an immediate six-game unbeaten streak and followed it with an 18-6-3 record that included four shutouts and a 2.13 goals-against average.He started this season in the same fashion. He was 4-0 with his first shutout before the NHL season was two weeks old.But Washington's past two games against the Colorado Avalanche and Los Angeles Kings have brought another experience.

A day after the Detroit Tigers bullpen imploded in Game 1, the same cast of relievers was again responsible for an eighth-inning meltdown that sent the Orioles on the road with a 7-6 win and a 2-0 lead in the American League Division Series. "It's certainly a little tough to swallow," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "When you have a three-run lead going into the last couple of innings, you feel like you should get the job done. But we didn't. " The Tigers bullpen returns to Comerica Park after a disastrous two-day stretch in which it allowed 11 runs (10 earned)

For the third time this season, Morgan State lost a game by less than a field goal. But unlike setbacks to Eastern Michigan on Aug. 30 and Holy Cross on Sept. 6, there was something different about Saturday's 15-14 loss to Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference foe Norfolk State. The Bears had entered the contest on a two-game winning streak, and the Spartans wallowed their way through an 0-4 start. But Morgan State (2-3 overall and 1-1 in the league) couldn't prevent Norfolk State from scoring a game-winning touchdown with 29 seconds left in regulation.

Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith has spent the majority of the first two games running fly patterns and operating as something of a glorified decoy. The former Maryland star has been targeted 10 times and has just four receptions for 60 yards and no touchdowns. He drew one defensive pass interference penalty against the Pittsburgh Steelers on cornerback Cortez Allen that led to an Owen Daniels touchdown. Smith said he's not concerned about his workload and expects to get his touches as the season goes on. "I'm playing my part, and I know the ball is going to come more than it has been," said Smith, who caught a career-high 65 passes for 1,128 yards and four touchdowns last season.

Eluding cornerbacks with quick moves or tossing them aside with a mean stiff arm, wide receiver Steve Smith has been busy establishing himself as the Ravens' top offensive weapon through two games. Smith has been thrown to a team-high 25 times heading into Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, making 13 catches for 189 yards and a touchdown. Signed to a three-year, $11 million contract in March, the five-time Pro Bowl selection quickly has become the featured wide receiver that Andre Johnson was in Gary Kubiak's Houston Texans offense.

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 Cleveland Browns, are based on just two games and could be misleading, but either way, here they are. 5.09 - Through two games, the Ravens' running backs are averaging 5.09 yards per carry. Bernard Pierce and Justin Forsett padded those stats late in Thursday's win over the Steelers, but a number around two yards per carry better than last year's team rate has to be just what the Ravens signed up for when they brought in offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak.

The suspensions for Ravens running back Ray Rice and safety Will Hill officially began late Saturday afternoon when they were both placed on the reserve-suspended list. Rice is suspended for two games for violating the NFL's personal-conduct policy. The punishment stems from his felony aggravated assault case involving a domestic violence incident from a physical altercation between him and his then-fiancee, whom he later married, at an Atlantic City casino. Rice will miss games against the Cincinnati Bengals and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

PHILADELPHIA -- Barring an unforeseen circumstance, which translates to an offensive malfunction by the Toronto Blue Jays, Paul Molitor will not start World Series games 4 and 5.After much deliberation, that was the decision reached yesterday by manager Cito Gaston. Less than two hours before the scheduled start of Game 3 last night, Gaston revealed that Molitor would replace John Olerud at first base against Philadelphia Phillies left-hander Danny Jackson.But, at the same time, Gaston dropped something of a bombshell by saying that "Paul probably will sit the next two games."

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced sweeping changes to the NFL personal-conduct policy Thursday, writing in a letter to NFL owners obtained by The Baltimore Sun that discipline for domestic violence incidents will increase significantly. The NFL will suspend first-time offenders for six games. A second violation would result in a lifetime ban, though players could file for reinstatement after one year. "Violations of the Personal Conduct Policy regarding assault, battery, domestic violence and sexual assault that involve physical force will be subject to enhanced discipline," Goodell wrote in the letter.
