(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer Almost any time Ray Lewis has lined up over the last 17 years, he has been the best linebacker - if not the best player - on the field.
If Lewis is in uniform Sunday when the Ravens play the Broncos that might not be the case.
With his rare combination of around-the-corner speed and nimble footwork, Denver's Von Miller is changing the equation.
He was last year's defensive rookie of the year and is a favorite to be this year's defensive player of the year. He heads into the 14th game with 16 sacks, one short of Elvis Dumervil's single-season franchise record. Miller has at least one sack in the past six games, along with six forced fumbles and a total of 24 tackles in opposing team's backfields.

The Baltimore Ravens do not plan to activate Ray Lewis from the injured reserve list. Lewis has been out since Oct. 14 with an injury to his triceps.
While Lewis has practiced this week signs point to the Ravens waiting until Week 16 to activate their defensive leader. The Ravens will be without Jameel McClain (neck) while Dannell Ellerbe (ankle) is questionable.
Baltimore has lost...
The Broncos are playing great football and are one of the best teams in the AFC. Can they make it all the way to the Super Bowl?
With only three weeks left in the season it's time to teams to step-up and secure a playoff spot or start looking forward to next season.
After a rough couple weeks I'm sitting at 132-76, I need to step it up.
Here's a quick look at...
The once-esteemed defense of the Baltimore Ravens is almost unrecognizable these days.
Many of the unit's most established players - including Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs and Lardarius Webb - have sustained serious injuries. Suggs missed first six games of the season on the sideline with a torn right Achillies tendon, returned for a half-dozen games and then sat out last week with...

With yesterday’s news that Cam Cameron has been relieved of his post I’m left feeling a bit off. This must be how Jay Leno felt in the waning days of George W. Bush’s presidency… suddenly, I’m going to need all new material. In my own personal version of the #FireNorv campaign I have been fairly critical of Cameron throughout his reign as OC of the Ravens. Baltimore checks...
According to Michelle Beisner of the NFL Network, the Baltimore Ravens do not plan on activating linebacker Ray Lewis for tomorrow’s game against the Broncos.
According to @ravens, there are no plans to activate Ray Lewis to 53 man roster for Sundays game vs @denver_broncos. He has a triceps injury

Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis (triceps) will not be activated from injured reserve this week against the Broncos. SOURCE: Michelle Beisner, NFL Network.Fantasy Spin:Lewis has been on IR for eight weeks and is first eligible to return in Week 15. However, the Ravens are not planning on making the veteran available. There should be absolutely nothing deterring you from playing Peyton...
Jim Caldwell will remain the Baltimore Ravens' offensive coordinator next season.
Caldwell moved from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator on Dec. 9 after coach John Harbaugh fired Cam Cameron.
With Caldwell directing the offense, the Ravens have won three straight playoff games to advance to the Super Bowl for the first time since the 2000 season. This is the first...
So, all year, or at least since everyone realized Matt Ryan was a fraud, Peyton has inexplicably been leading the MVP race. This has made NO sense to me whatsoever. I could not understand how Peyton could possibly be ahead of TB12 in the race. Like did people forget about turnovers all of a sudden? It just made no sense to me. Like yeah, I get it media, Peyton is such a nice guy...
Okay, I saw this week how the Baltimore Ravens made the fairly dramatic in-season move of replacing their offensive coordinator.
Cam Cameron went down for a number of alleged reasons, including his offense’s inconsistency and, interestingly enough, his apparent unwillingness to get the ball in the hands of star running back Ray Rice.
Here’s my question: Just how many touches...
Houston's blowout loss to the Patriots sent the Texans sliding down our Power Rankings. Now, the Denver Broncos have the top to themselves.
(Eds: Adds background, quotes. With AP Photos.) By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer The last time the Denver Broncos won a game in Baltimore, a baby-faced John Elway was making his second NFL start and producing his first career fourth-quarter comeback.
That was way back in 1983, before the Colts left for Indianapolis. The Broncos are 0-5 in Baltimore since the Ravens entered...
