Clear Channel Outdoor posted the messages Tuesday morning to the electronic billboards they own. FYI, for those who aren't football fans, "Legatron" is a nickname that honors Tucker's powerful kicking skills.

Ravens kicker Justin Tucker clutched the football Sunday afternoon as he headed up the tunnel into the locker room. It was worth keeping after Tucker delivered the game-winning field goal on a 46-yard kick to seal the Ravens' 20-17 overtime victory Sunday over the Cincinnati Bengals at M&T Bank Stadium. Long snapper Morgan Cox sprinted over to secure the ball for Tucker after it sailed through the uprights. "That was the fastest I've ever seen Morgan run," Tucker said.

Looking for proof that Hammond has a young, inexperienced team this season?Search no farther than yesterday's opening 2-1 overtime victory over Westlake of Charles County.Neither junior midfielder Jason Decker, who scored the winning goal in the first minute of overtime, nor sophomore striker Rory Peters, who scored the first goal in the third minute of regulation, had scored before during their high-school careers, including JV competition.Despite the Bears' inexperience, the victory against a competitive Westlake team that was equally young and matched up well with Hammond in skills and speed, had to be encouraging for Hammond coach Rich Corkran.

Good game.Hard-bitten old pros tell us there's no such thing as a moral victory. But under the circumstances the Bandits are facing these days, there has to be something to go along with another L (for loss) when a solid effort goes for naught against a superior team.Recovering from a pair of two-goal deficits in the first 15 minutes of action, the Bandits managed to pull even early in the third period before succumbing to the Springfield Falcons, 4-3, last night at Baltimore Arena.Trailing by a goal after two periods, the home team squared it on a power-play score by Pavel Trnka after 5: 24 of the third period.

- Ultimately, it was a special teams play that lifted the Ravens into the AFC championship game. For much of Saturday's 38-35 double-overtime win over the Denver Broncos, however, it appeared that special teams would be the Ravens' downfall. The Broncos' 5-foot-5 Trindon Holliday became the first player in NFL history to return a kickoff and a punt for touchdowns in the same postseason game. He also set NFL records for the longest kickoff return (104) and punt return (90) in postseason history.

The outcome was significant as it kept the Redskins one game behind the New York Giants in the NFC East and one game behind the Seattle Seahawks and the Chicago Bears for the last wildcard berth.
