Derrick Mason has proved that a 5-foot-10, 192-pound wide receiver can succeed in the NFL. He has proved that a 34-year-old can run circles around younger cornerbacks. Now he has proved he doesn't need two healthy arms to aid his team's run to the playoffs. Mason caught six passes for 66 yards and a 13-yard touchdown in the Ravens' 33-24 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday night despite a left trapezoid that spasmed up and forced him to play essentially with only his right arm. "I don't want to, but I think I've proven that I can go out there and try to do the best that I can and try to help the team out in any way possible," Mason said yesterday.

INSIDE SLANT George Kokinis, the Ravens' pro personnel director, sizes up the Bengals: Strength of offense Right side of the offensive line. There's a lot of meat with right guard Bobbie Williams (330 pounds) and right tackle Willie Anderson (340). The field tilts a little bit with them. But they move pretty well and come off the ball strong. Last week against Cleveland, they opened some nice lanes for running back Rudi Johnson. They do as solid of a job in the passing game, too, which allows Cincinnati to be balanced.

The Ravens might clinch the sixth and final playoff spot in the AFC before they take the field Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars at M&T Bank Stadium, but that scenario won't change their approach to the regular-season finale. "I think we want to win the game," coach John Harbaugh said during his news conference yesterday. "You look at our guys and our football team, I don't know that we're the type of team that's going to want to go out there and not win a football game no matter what's at stake.

The Ravens are still in a holding pattern regarding offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden. Ogden, a 10-time Pro Bowl pick, practiced yesterday for the first time in pads but was limited during practice, according to the team. Afterward, Ogden, who has been sidelined for the entire offseason and preseason with a hyperextended toe, said he was "cautiously optimistic" about playing against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday night but also acknowledged that if the game was yesterday, he would not have played.

Offensive tackle Willie Anderson - all 6 feet 5 and 340 pounds - has made a living standing in the path of a rushing defensive end. He doesn't want to do the same when it comes to the development of the Ravens' offensive line. Anderson, 33, earned four Pro Bowl invitations at right tackle and was released by the Cincinnati Bengals last month because, in part, he did not want to take a pay cut to be a backup. But Anderson is loath to disrupt an offensive line that surrendered no sacks and paved the way for 229 rushing yards in the Ravens' 17-10 win against the Bengals on Sunday.

Teammates like center Jason Brown and left guard Ben Grubbs have spoken of their admiration for you. What does it mean to you to join a new team and earn their respect so quickly? It just means you're old. [Laughs.] But I knew coming in here that I was going to have to be in a show-and-prove mode. I had made that my goal for the '08 season even when I was with the Bengals. I knew I had to come in and show them that I could still play at a high level, and once I got released from there, I still made that goal my goal here, to come in and show the Ravens that I could still play.

Jacksonville wide receiver Jimmy Smith knew the Jaguars, down to their third-string running back and facing one of the NFL's top run defenses, would be forced to rely heavily on their passing game. So Smith set about enjoying a familiar feast. The Ravens may have won over their city and established themselves as legitimate playoff contenders with yesterday's thrilling, come-from-behind, 39-36 victory. But they are still wondering if and when they will ever find a way to stop Smith, who continues to undress their secondary with one spectacular game after another.
