As a 20-year-old fresh out of college, Terrell Suggs never intended to spend his entire NFL career with one team.
The Baltimore Ravens intend to talk to Ray Rice before deciding how to deal with the running back's arrest in a New Jersey casino.
Baltimore went 8-8 and fell out of contention with a 34-17 loss to Cincinnati in the season finale. It wasn't a disaster of a season, but it certainly wasn't what the Ravens were looking for coming off the second Super Bowl win in franchise history.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — When you reach the playoffs in five straight seasons and take home a Super Bowl trophy to cap the run, it's difficult to stay at home in January while a dozen other teams are still playing football.
The only way the Ravens can qualify for the playoffs is as the second AFC wild-card team. Baltimore must beat Cincinnati and hope either Miami (8-7) or San Diego (8-7) loses or ties, or, in a stretch, the Ravens can make it with a loss if San Diego and Miami also lose and Pittsburgh (7-8) ties or loses.
"He's pretty old, so I don't know how physical he'll be," Elam said of the 28-year-old Lions receiver. "He's a big guy, but he's older. I guess when they get older they're not going to be as physical, you know what I'm saying? We're going to have to be physical, make him uncomfortable."
Brutally bad weather or bitter cold meant good vibes for lots of NFL players.
Joe Flacco threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to rookie Marlon Brown with 4 seconds left to ice Baltimore's 29-26 victory Sunday. Brown's catch concluded a five-play, 80-yard drive that took only 41 seconds. It came after Matt Cassel threw a 79-yard touchdown pass to Cordarrelle Patterson with 45 seconds remaining.
The last time the Baltimore Ravens played on Thanksgiving, coach John Harbaugh gathered the family together for a game against brother Jim and the San Francisco 49ers. Two years later, Harbaugh and the Ravens will spend the holiday with their most bitter rival.
Joe Flacco threw a 66-yard touchdown pass to Jacoby Jones, Justin Tucker kicked four field goals and the Ravens shut down the sputtering offense of the New York Jets in a 19-3 victory Sunday.
Frantically trying to protect a slim lead late in the fourth quarter, the Baltimore Ravens' pass rushers let Ryan Tannehill slip away to throw for a big gain. The next time they made sure he didn't escape.
"All these games count in the long run, but it's early," Baltimore outside linebacker Terrell Suggs said. "I don't think anyone needs to jump to any conclusions after the first game."
After 17 seasons and two Super Bowl titles, linebacker Ray Lewis retired. The Ravens allowed Ed Reed to sign with Houston in free agency. In total, eight starters are gone from the championship team.
Ray Lewis wasn't there. Neither was Ed Reed, or at least a half dozen other players who hoisted the Super Bowl trophy last February.
"The No. 1 priority for myself, Ozzie and everybody in his building is to win," he said. "How do we win? This is the business side of it, where we needed to help bring in guys."
"I've learned the value of the word legacy and being on one team and in one uniform your whole career," Suggs said. "You learn about priorities when you play with a man like that."
