The Penalty Flag:
Any NFL team has its share of crazed fans, whether it’s the guy that dresses like the team’s mascot for every home game, or wears nothing but team colors all week at work, or the guys that constantly harass anyone wearing another team’s colors. After reading a lot and browsing through friend’s posts on Facebook I’ve come to realize there are four main points people make about the Baltimore Ravens that are kind of ridiculous and are easily proven so.
1. ” The Ravens will Never Win a Super Bowl with Joe Flacco as Quarterback”
This one always gets me, the first thing wrong with it is that it’s quoting a Pittsburgh Steeler, Linebacker Lamarr Woodley in fact.… Read more

If the Ravens don't win this week and win big, their hope of a Super Bowl run is over. They need to make a statement this week.
After an average Thanksgiving week of picks I'm sitting at 114-63. I need to step my game up as we sprint to the postseason.
Jacksonville at Buffalo - Chad Henne is proving that he can play QB in the NFL. I liked him in Miami...
ThePittsburgh Steelers may be only 6-5 entering this weeks game against rival Baltimore, but it’s not unfamiliar territory for the six-time Superbowl champs. In 2005 the Steelers were 7-5 after three straight losses and rallied together to win out the remainder of the season and eventually go on to win the Superbowl. There is one more situation that is becoming eerily connected...
Yup, Sports Friends might be our favorite new thing ont he web. With Ray Lewis injured, Ray Rice asks Joe Flacco to give the team’s pre-game speeches.
While Ray Rice continued to bask in the glow of his 29-yard, catch-and-run on fourth-and-29 against the San Diego Chargers, quarterback Joe Flacco admitted that he didnt do any reflecting on the play and he didnt plan to.
We got away with one and Ill be glad. I could have looked like a big-time idiot if we dont get that play, Flacco said. I kind of went out on a limb...
Ravens Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice's epic 4th-and-29 jaunt already made him a staple on highlight videos.
Now, Rice has picked up a new accolade as the AFC Offensive Player of the Week.
Rice's conversion of what initially looked to be an extreme long shot propelled the Ravens to a 16-13 overtime victory over the San Diego Chargers. His first down with 1:59 remaining...
As the Ravens prepare for Steelers Week Part Two, one of their players won a weekly award for his performance last week.
Running back Ray Rice has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week, according to reports. Rice single-handedly helped the Ravens win against the Chargers because of his conversion on 4th-and-29 last Sunday afternoon.
And now for the injury report.
Despite never considering the implications of the products hilarious name, the Jacksonville Jaguars have begun to sell team towels known as a “Jag Rag” (Credit: Dead Spin)
In case you have not had enough news about NFL towels recently, we have one more. From Ray Rice “disrespecting” the Pittsburgh Steelers terrible towel to LaMarr Woodley “warning” Ray Rice over his treatment...
Season 3, Episode 49 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I start by talking about the Ray Rice incident with the Terrible Terrible from two weeks ago after hearing his side of the story. Was Rice respecting the towel instead of disrespecting it? We invite your comments on this as well. We also both agree that it really doesn't feel like "Ravens Weeks...
Last Sunday, the Chargers out Chargers-ed themselves: they blew a 10-point lead against the Ravens in an eminently winnable game, the nadir coming when Baltimore's Ray Rice converted a 4th-and-29 late in the fourth quarter. A few plays later, the Ravens would kick the game-tying field goal before notching the victory in overtime.
That fourth-down play has been scrutinized...
All my Vanderjacked fans were asking about week 11′s award…well with Thanksgiving around the corner I didn’t feel it would be nice to single out one kicker when I am thankful for all kickers!
This week all we heard about was Ray Rice making a 4th and 29 late in the game against the lowly Bolts, and as Rice said, “Hey Diddle, Diddle Ray Rice up the middle!” Well, Ray Rice...
Did anyone watch the Chargers/Ravens game last week? If you saw last week’s Backdoor Cover you know I had the home San Diego. What a way to lose a game.
Much was made of Ray Rice converting a 4th and 29 to keep the game alive. He didn’t even make it I mean, by at least a yard. By the time it was reviewed, the chains had already moved so the refs didn’t know where exactly they...

Fantasy owners are faced with numerous difficult choices at running back in this final week of the regular season.
- Do you trust DeMarco Murray or Darren McFadden in their return to the field?
- Do you dare dive into the Pittsburgh backfield after last week's eight-turnover debacle?
- Are you fearful of Marshawn Lynch and Matt Forte in a battle of NFC playoff hopefuls?
Week 13 Ride ‘Em Or Hide ‘Em RBs
You don’t need me to tell you to start Arian Foster, Ray Rice, or Adrian Peterson…my mom could figure that out. Let’s look at some other matchups that could be favorable this week:

This Sunday, in NFL Week 13’s late afternoon headliner, the 9-2 Baltimore Ravens have the opportunity to all but lock up first place in the AFC North division by knocking off the 6-5 Pittsburgh Steelers at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. The Ravens look to cap off an undefeated three-game stretch, which has been described as the most difficult part of their schedule. They...
