One of major league baseball's unwritten rules is never underestimate the opposition, no matter how much it has been struggling, because every team has its share of talent. So when the Orioles finally escaped one of the worst early-season stretches in their history, a 32-game span against mostly top-shelf teams in which they won just nine times, no one in the clubhouse said easier times lay ahead. Undoubtedly, the schedule softened considerably this week when the three American League teams whose records most closely resembled the basement-dwelling Orioles visited Camden Yards.

Eagles DT Brodrick Bunkley vs. Ravens OG Ben Grubbs Bunkley and fellow defensive tackle Mike Patterson have been the keys to Philadelphia's run defense. Bunkley is a load to move in the middle. He plays with power and has agility. He can collapse the pocket. Grubbs has had a solid season. He started out well but has leveled off the past two weeks. The Ravens will need a strong effort from him against Bunkley and for the rest of the season. Edge: Bunkley: Eagles RB Brian Westbrook vs. Ravens linebackers Westbrook is an amazing weapon, but his status is questionable because of an injury.

End of story."There was never any question that we would air the tape. None. The call was as clear as any news call I've ever made," said Cavender.

ASHBURN, Va. - For public consumption, wide receiver Michael Westbrook has been saying all the right things about the Washington Redskins' struggles, and how it's only a matter of time before the team breaks through to get its first win of the season, perhaps as early as Sunday at home against the Carolina Panthers. "We're looking for that game that we can win, and then tie two [victories] together," Westbrook said this week at Redskin Park. "We're getting closer. We're becoming a team, and, in my opinion, we're getting better as a team.

THREE THINGS THAT NEED TO GO RIGHT ... 1 Protect Joe Flacco. The Ravens' banged-up offensive line has to keep its rookie quarterback safe. The Eagles are tied for the NFL lead with 36 sacks. 2 Limit big plays in the passing game. A secondary that is missing two starters for the season has to hold up against the Eagles, who rank third in the league with 36 pass plays of 20 yards or more. 3 Force turnovers by Donovan McNabb. The Eagles quarterback has thrown five interceptions in the past three games after throwing just three in the first seven games.

Try to sell a house in this down market, and you might start fantasizing about what-ifs. For instance: What if you could tap into the large pool of people who, just like you, would buy if only they could first sell? What if you could find someone with a place you want who in turn wants your place? Actually, you can. You can give it a shot, anyway. It's called "house trading." "It's a very viable alternative if it's a tough market, if you're literally unable to sell your home," says Danielle Babb, an author of real estate books, including Finding Foreclosures.

CLEVELAND -- The Lake Erie midges gave new meaning to the term home-field advantage when they crashed Jacobs Field earlier in the postseason. The Boston Red Sox, however, could not blame last night on the bugs. There were no buzzing insects in Daisuke Matsuzaka's air space when Kenny Lofton took him deep for a two-run homer in the second inning. And nothing appeared to be crawling on any of Boston's hitters as they bounced into three double plays against Indians No. 3 starter Jake Westbrook, often overlooked because of Cleveland aces C.C. Sabathia and Fausto Carmona.

The Anne Arundel County Council voted to approve a deal this week that allows struggling Millennium Digital Media Services to hand over its 38,000 cable customers to Comcast Corp. The agreement between St. Louis-based Millennium and Comcast needs federal approval. Kelvin Westbrook, chairman of Millennium, said endorsement by the local government is one factor federal officials consider. Westbrook said he has received "all sorts of assurances that [Comcast] will maintain the same level of service."

It's a history thing Yesterday's 27-7 loss to the Texans dropped the Jaguars to 3-3, but it shouldn't have come as a surprise. The Texans were 4-4 against the Jaguars coming into the season, and knocked them out of a playoff spot with a Week 17 upset in 2004. Chester Taylor's day Could the Ravens use running back Chester Taylor? You bet. He had a 95-yard touchdown run for the Vikings and 169 rushing yards in a 31-13 upset of the Seahawks. But it's no sure thing that Taylor could have ignited the Ravens' tepid ground game.

ASHBURN, Va. - Washington Redskins passing coordinator and wide receivers coach Terry Robiskie figures he has all 12 opposing teams on the schedule caught in a dilemma. Sort of a one-or-the-other, either-or outlook on how to defend against receivers Albert Connell and Michael Westbrook. "I think that is the one thing we like about the offensive situation that we're in," Robiskie said. "We have two guys that are equal. We have two guys that either one of them can go and get 79, 80 [catches]
