The Ravens have fallen behind the St. Louis Rams in their final (hooray!) preseason game in the first quarter.
Sam Bradford led the Rams on a drive from under the shadow of his own field goal posts. The drive was aided by a long pass play in which Jimmy Smith fell down in coverage.
On the next Ravens’ offensive possession Tyrod Taylor lost a fumble.
The Ravens are down 14-0 in the first quarter.
BEST OF MAXIM
Many NFL fans will probably never remember the ongoing eight year stellar career of St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson, but Rams fans certainly will. Steven Jackson should join an elite list of running backs whose careers were underrated because they played for mediocre teams.
The Ravens cut former Colts quarterback Curtis Painter amongst a bevy of roster moves on Friday.Fantasy Spin:With Joe Flacco ahead of him on the depth chart, Painter never had a realistic chance to succeed in Baltimore so it's no surprise that they gave him the boot on cut day. Painter hasn't shown us much in his first three years of professional football (66.6 career QB...
(Updates.) Scott Wells has had a busy offseason.
After signing a four-year, $24 million contract with the St. Louis Rams, the former Green Bay Packers center had knee surgery that kept him from most of the team's activities.
While rehabbing, Wells and his wife recently completed the adoption of three orphans from Uganda, a process that took nearly 18 months.
As they prepare...
Baltimore Ravens rookie linebacker Courtney Upshaw re-injured his shoulder during Thursday night’s preseason finale against the Rams.
“Upshaw, who was bothered throughout training camp by a sprained right shoulder, reinjured it in the second quarter of the Ravens’ 31-17 loss. He jogged off the field favoring his shoulder and he did not return to the game.
Ravens brass had a very productive 2008 draft as they secured a franchise QB with the 18th overall pick when they selected Delaware Blue Hen Joe Flacco and then got one of the steals of recent draft memory nabbing Ray Rice in round 2. With a more aggressive offensive philosophy , myriad of receiving weapons and a defense that could yield more points without Terrell Suggs (expected...
St. Louis Rams rookie defensive tackle Michael Brockers injured his right ankle near the end of the first quarter of the preseason finale.
Brockers, the team's first-round draft pick, was injured when he got tangled up with the Ravens' Jah Reid with 4 seconds to go in the quarter Thursday night. He was helped off the field by two trainers but was able to put weight on the...
The 2011 Rams were depressing in the way an abandoned strip mall is depressing. Not really hurting anybody, but not serving much of a function, either. No one questions that it’s sad to look at, but no one really cares enough to try to improve it. Meanwhile. are enough other options out there that locals can avoid it without much thought. Furthermore, both A.J. Feeley and Kellen...
After a year away, Jeff Fisher returned to the NFL refreshed, renewed and best of all, patient. Rebuilding the St. Louis Rams might take time.
Fisher inherits a handful of key veterans from a 2-14 season that got coach Steve Spagnuolo and general manager Billy Devaney fired. Surrounding quarterback Sam Bradford, middle linebacker James Laurinaitis, defensive end Chris Long and select...
It took a while for the Ravens to get on the board, but they did in the third quarter.
Backup quarterback Curtis Painter found tight end Billy Bajema in the end zone for the Ravens’ first touchdown of the game.
Painter later found wide receiver Deonte Thompson for the second touchdown of the game.
Cuts are tomorrow. I will write about those when they happen.
Jeff Fisher may have done Baltimore a favor by starting his first team and playing them for most of the first half... it gave Ravens coach John Harbaugh a benchmark for testing the playability of his 2's, 3's and 4's in the final game of the 2012 preseason.Now the cuts the Ravens have to make will at least be based upon relativity to the best St. Louis has to offer.It...
Try! I’m known for trying to do almost anything when it comes to the St. Louis Rams. In doing so, I’ve learned a great deal. For instance, Photoshop doesn’t really capture the majesty of a Rams game ticket, or at least that’s what the guys at the stadium entrance have told me on more than one occasion… Call it Kismet or Karma, I’m left with tailgating in the parking...
