Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith lost his 19-year-old brother, Tevin, to a motorcycle accident early Sunday morning. It is unknown if he will play against the Patriots.
QUOTH THE RAVEN FANS
Sunday Night Football has brought us some crazy plays and some God awful officiating. We’ve seen Bill Belichick mouth visual expletives and also the crowd in Baltimore gave the loudest expletive chant I’ve ever heard in all of my years watching sports. The Baltimore Raven faithful are not happy with the calls that the New England Patriots are getting and they have good reason...
Torrey Smith took a knee and pointed to the sky after he hauled in a 25-yard touchdown reception from Joe Flacco. Smith, who is playing with a heavy heart because of the recent death of his younger brother, was then met by most of his teammates in an emotional scene after the catch.
Smith's brother, Tevin Chris Jones, died on early Sunday morning after being involved in a motorcycle...
The brother of Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith has been killed in a motorcycle accident.

Tonight, the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens meet up for a Sunday Night Football tilt that marks the first time these two squads have met since last season’s AFC title game.
Lee Evans and Billy Cundiff went boom in a matter of moments; thus, the Patriots won the AFC and Baltimore was left crying those tears of remorse into the pillow of regret.
As Brandon Spikes already phrased more eloquently than we ever could, the replacement officials were as bad as they have been all year during Sunday night’s game between the Patriots and Ravens. Their performance resulted in 70,000-plus fans reaching their boiling point toward the end of the game when John Harbaugh received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Harbaugh claims he...
Patriots coach Bill Belichicks decision to grab an official at the conclusion of the Ravens 31-30 win Sunday night drew the headlines, but that doesnt mean that Ravens coach John Harbaugh has escaped the NFLs attention.
The league announced Monday that it was opening an investigation into several coaches who had run-ins with officials Sunday, including Harbaughs self...
Finally the Ravens will get to face the Patriots at home. It’s their first game in Baltimore since the Bart Scott flag-throwing game in 2007.
This game will perhaps determine playoff seedings for the AFC as both teams are coming off losses to NFC foes.
The last time these two teams met, it was a gut-wrenching loss for the Ravens. In that game, quarterback Joe Flacco thoroughly...
Coming into this game, the Baltimore Ravens could only think about one thing: getting revenge on the New England Patriots for knocking them out of the playoffs last year. These feelings kind of took a backseat as they help comfort wide receiver Torrey Smith after hearing less than 24 hours that his younger brother, Tevin Jones passed away in a motorcycle accident. In return, Smith...
BALTIMORE -- Justin Tucker's 27-yard field goal as time expired gave the Baltimore Ravens a 31-30 comeback win over the New England Patriots on Sunday night in front of 71,269 at M&T Bank Stadium. Baltimore trailed by nine with 14 minutes left and was down 30-28 when Joe Flacco got the ball back with just under two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. He led the Ravens...
An early interception by Joe Flacco and pinpoint passing by Tom Brady has led to a Ravens’ deficit of 10-0 in the first quarter.
The Ravens look sluggish on defense and offense so far.
So far, not so good for the Ravens.

There wasn’t much that happened on the field tonight that I respected, but Torrey Smith’s performance is one. So here’s a nod to Torrey for a memorable performance under horrible circumstances that helped his team pull out the win.
Congrats to the Ravens. Now back to the Pats drawing board…
6 receptions. 127 yards. 2 touchdowns. Wow.
Julian Edleman dropped this second quarter pass
Honestly, when the fourth quarter came around, I don’t think either teams fan base wanted to win the football game. They really just wanted to find head referee Bruce Hermanson’s car and throw chicken-milk stink bombs at it. In the end, it was the Ravens who came out victors over the New England Patriots, after a little bit more...
