The only players not expected to play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, though, are offensive tackle Eugene Monroe, defensive end Chris Canty and defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan. Monroe is out for at least a month after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery prior to the Ravens' win over the Carolina Panthers, according to a source. Canty had successful wrist surgery and is out for two to three weeks, barring a setback, according to a source.

Unlike solar eclipses, lunar eclipses are safe to watch with the naked eye. But clouds or other atmospheric conditions can get in the way of a dramatic view. Look to the western horizon starting at 6:25 a.m. for a chance to see the "blood moon" phenomenon that can occur during full lunar eclipses. Like with brilliant sunrises and sunsets, the reddish hue that the moon can take on depends on dust and other atmospheric conditions. Partial eclipse begins at 5:15 a.m., causing a dimming of one side of the moon.

A full lunar eclipse will occur during the Full Hunter's Moon, creating a spectacle that may make the moon appear in a rusty hue early Wednesday morning. The moon will be full at 6:51 a.m. Wednesday, so it will be shining big and bright Tuesday night, though it won't be technically full yet. Just about half an hour before that, the peak of a lunar eclipse will begin. "Totality" of lunar eclipse starts at 6:25 a.m., falling just before sunrise on the East Coast. The moon will be passing within the Earth's shadow.

"I've been in World Series … I've been in the World Baseball Classic … I've been in the All-Star Game, and I never heard nothing like this," said Game 1 hero Nelson Cruz. "It was so loud, my ears were ringing.
