PHILADELPHIA -- The Washington Redskins, whose long line of capable quarterbacks never seems to run out, could have pleaded poverty last night.Playing against an uncompromising Philadelphia Eagles defense, the Redskins lost two quarterbacks to injury and had to finish a devastating 28-14 loss with rookie special teamer Brian Mitchell at the offensive controls.As fate would have it on a night of bizarre, almost eerie plays, Mitchell produced the team's only legitimate offensive drive. The former Southwest Louisiana quarterback capped it with a 1-yard touchdown.

NEW ORLEANS --  Attempting to convince the Ravens to keep three quarterbacks on the roster, rookie Keith Wenning saved his best performance of the preseason for the final game. Wenning completed 8 of 13 passes for 117 yards for a 90.9 quarterback rating Thursday night against the New Orleans Saints during a 22-13 victory at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. "It was fun to be out there," Wenning said. "I wasn't nervous. I was just trying to make a play. I am pleased. I feel like I made some plays.

COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen is confident enough about his team's chances against No. 19 Florida State that he began yesterday's news conference by asking his school's students not to vandalize the campus Saturday night, saying, "It's time that we act like we know what it's like to win." Friedgen said he expected the same level of confidence out of his 10th-ranked team, which is an eight-point underdog in Saturday's game in Tallahassee. Anyone not meeting his expectations could be left at home.

After his franchise signal caller this week criticized the use of the two-quarterback offense, coach John Harbaugh said the Ravens were willing to do whatever it took to move the ball offensively. By saying as much, Harbaugh made it clear that Joe Flacco's concerns about the new scheme wouldn't sway the team from using it in the future. But Flacco got his way Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers - at least for one week. After Flacco's comments became national news, and the subject of the two-quarterback offense overshadowed the rivalry game with the Steelers locally, backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor's activity was limited to riding an exercise bike on the sideline during the Ravens' 22-20 victory.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland coach Ron Vanderlinden said he won't name his starting quarterback until Saturday, the day his team plays North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Vanderlinden does have a decision to make between Calvin McCall, who sprained an ankle in Saturday's win over North Carolina State, and Shaun Hill, who directed the come-from-behind victory over the Wolfpack. The decision could determine whether his team can pick up its sixth win, making it eligible to receive bowl invitations, most likely from the Micronpc.

Towson (2-0) @UMass (2-0) Time -- Noon Site -- McGuirk Stadium, Amherst, Mass. Outlook -- Towson will discover just two games into the season how it stacks up against the third-ranked Football Championship Subdivision team in the nation, Massachusetts, which has won nine straight games at McGuirk Stadium. The Minutemen not only finished second to new sensation Appalachian State last year in the Division I-AA playoffs, but they also routed the Tigers, 35-0, to spoil homecoming in the first meeting between the two schools.

Ravens coach Brian Billick has grown tired of media reports portraying the New York Jets as a team in crisis. Before taking any questions yesterday, he opened his session with the media by saying, "Tomorrow, we're going to take up a donation for the New York Jets' relief fund. Because based on what I'm reading and hearing, I can't imagine these guys showing up. Good lord, I can't turn on the TV without seeing [hurricanes] Katrina, Rita, and oh my God, the Jets. I'm digging in my pockets for money."

COLLEGE PARK -- The Maryland Terrapins are undefeated, ranked in the Top 25 and getting ready for a huge game against Duke this weekend, but a critical issue hangs over them: What happens at quarterback when Scott Milanovich returns next week from his suspension for gambling?It was an easy call for coach Mark Duffner until the Terps went 3-0; Milanovich is the superior talent, more experienced, the kind of quarterback a coach would be foolish not to use. But Duffner's call is suddenly and pleasantly muddled now that sophomore fill-in Brian Cummings has led the surprising Terps to their first national ranking in nine years.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Someday, Austin Moherman and Steve Bellisari might become a better quarterback tandem than Joe Germaine and Stanley Jackson. Ken-Yon Rambo might prove more a dangerous receiver than David Boston. Ohio State has a track record for replacing great players with even better ones.But this time, it's going to take some time. It didn't happen in yesterday's Kickoff Classic at Giants Stadium.The game belonged to Miami, a young team looking to rejoin football's elite. The Hurricanes took a step in that direction by beating Ohio State, 23-12, before 73,037.

If depth and lack of competition were two of the Ravens' major problems during this season, then the team may have found some answers for next year in players such as Eric Zeier, John Williams, Ralph Staten, Keith Washington and James Roe.Once the Ravens were eliminated from the playoffs after a 10-10 tie to the Philadelphia Eagles and a 16-13 loss to the Arizona Cardinals during mid-November, injuries forced the club to turn to its reserves.And the results have been favorable with consecutive wins over Seattle and Tennessee.

Brendon Ayanbadejo didn't make a fourth consecutive start on Sunday, but the inside linebacker still made a sizable contribution in the Ravens' 33-14 pasting of the New York Giants. Ayanbadejo finished with three tackles, including one sack and two quarterback hits. Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and rookie free safety Omar Brown also posted sacks of Giants quarterback Eli Manning, and Ayanbadejo tied strong safety James Ihedigbo and defensive tackle Arthur Jones for the team lead in quarterback hits.

Less than a year removed from fumbling the football a career-worst 11 times, Joe Flacco has fallen into the bad habit again. The Ravens quarterback has coughed up the ball just seven times this season, but five have occurred in his last four contests. He was sacked and stripped of the ball in back-to-back losses to the Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins. Pittsburgh converted that turnover into a game-tying touchdown and Washington parlayed the takeaway into a field goal.

The Cleveland Browns, the Ravens' opponent Thursday night, rank 27th in pass defense in the NFL, and one reason could be the absence of cornerback Joe Haden. Haden, drafted in the first round in 2010, is a Pro Bowl-caliber cornerback who is widely respected by opposing quarterbacks. So his absence due to a four-game suspension for failing a drug test has impacted the Browns. In the two games that Cleveland has played without Haden, the Cincinnati Bengals' Andy Dalton and the Buffalo Bills' Ryan Fitzpatrick each threw three touchdown passes and completed more than 62 percent of their throws.

While the players were slapping high-fives and the city was buzzing about innovative play-calling, Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron seemed embarrassed by the attention. That's because Cameron understands the basics of the game so well. You can fool teams only so often, and when it comes to playoff time, it's all about fundamentals and game-breakers. It's a time when the frauds are exposed. "I want the guys to play hard, I want them to be excited," Cameron said. "But I don't want them to forget what we're about and what we need to do to win games.

College Park-- --The rhythms of the season are changing, and Ralph Friedgen has been in the game long enough to know when Week 1 is near. A veteran coach can measure the calendar with tightened nerves and sleepless nights. Friedgen has been leaving the University of Maryland's football offices about 11 o'clock each night. He gets home and gets only about halfway through an episode of Law & Order before falling asleep. Inevitably, he'll wake up about 4ish, turn off the TV and snooze until about 4:45 a.m., when he wakes up and makes a beeline back to work.

For those who were surprised that the Ravens picked a punter in the fourth round, be prepared for another shocker. The Ravens are planning on keeping two quarterbacks - Chris Redman and Jeff Blake - on their 53-man roster and going with punter Dave Zastudil as their third quarterback on game days. It's a move that would open a spot for kickoff specialist J.R. Jenkins and place reserve quarterback Wes Pate on the practice squad. When asked about using Zastudil as the emergency quarterback, Ravens coach Brian Billick said, "That's certainly an intriguing possibility.

MIAMI - They come from different parts of the country, throw with different arms and have taken different paths to tomorrow's Bowl Championship Series national title game in the Orange Bowl at Pro Player Stadium. Oklahoma quarterback Jason White and his Southern California counterpart, Matt Leinart, share one significant achievement that has become something of an albatross for many in the same position. A year ago, White became the latest Heisman Trophy winner to fail in his quest to win a national title game that season, joining a list that includes Miami's Gino Torretta and Vinny Testaverde, Florida State's Chris Weinke and Nebraska's Eric Crouch.
