San Diego Chargers
Kansas City Chiefs
The Ravens (8-2) fly to San Diego this weekend to play the Chargers in a 4:00 game (EST, Sunday, Nov.25)...and even though the Chargers are 4-6, they are being picked by a lot of media "experts" to beat the Ravens.
This is because Baltimore has a history of playing their worst games against San Diego in Qualcomm stadium. Maybe it's the "Curse ofJohnny Unitas", who was traded away from the old Baltimore Colts to spend his last season with a terrible San Diego franchise at the time.
But the trend is undeniable--- the Ravens were embarrassed by the Chargers last year for virtually no good reason. Maybe it's just a weird matchup matrix between these two teams.
San Diego is coming off a 30-23 loss to the Denver Broncos while Baltimore beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 13-10.
San Diego has a 4-4 record all-time against Baltimore which includes a 34-14 win during the 2011 NFL season. San Diego is also 4-2 all-time a...

You don't see too many sideline/postgame interviews end with the "thank you gorgeous" Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones dropped on NBC's Michele Tafoya Sunday night. While that's an awkward interaction, Tafoya to her credit was able to continue without getting flustered. And, at least...
NFL teams have become adept at using social media to connect with their fan bases.
But at some point, when seasons are going really, really bad, they have to know that posting anything – from charity events to team merchandise discounts — is going to get some backlash.
That’s what happened this week with the San Diego Chargers, who decided to have a nice Black Friday sale....
Ray Rice was spotted with a Terrible Towel draped over his head after the Baltimore Ravens defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night, and Pittsburgh linebacker LaMarr Woodley is not happy about it. Woodley apparently felt it was disrespectful of Rice, and he took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to warn him about it and remind everyone about two players who have done it in the...
RAY OF LIGHT
The Ravens running back expressed regret for draping a Terrible Towel over his head following a win over Pittsburgh, saying, "I apologize to those who saw it as disrespectful."
Baltimore Ravens FS Ed Reed will play against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday after his one-game suspension was reduced to a fine by the NFL. Reed was suspended for violating the league’s policy of hits on defenseless players.

Week Twelve Fantasy Football Rankings
Ray Rice is a top three option overall this week as the Ravens square off against a Chargers team that has been struggling as of late. We expect the Ravens to be protecting a lead in this one and thus giving Ray a lot of work.
Jimmy Graham is finally showing returns on the early pick his fantasy owners had to spend to get him on their roster...
Judge: Please explain to the court what you saw.
Witness: Well, it was a pass play. Definitely a pass play. The quarterback threw it. The receiver caught it. He got hit and went down. Then a flag was thrown.
Judge: And the receiver was struck in the head by the defender?
Witness: That is correct.
Judge: And the defender led with his helmet and initiated contact with his helmet?
When I found out Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed received a 1-game suspension for the "repeat offender" rule with illegal hits, I almost fell out of my chair. I couldn't believe the hit Reed put on Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders last Sunday night warranted a flag, let alone a fine or suspension. I did feel a little bit better when I found out Reed...
For the Ravens:

Limited participation: NT Terrence Cody (arm), TE Ed Dickson (neck), LB Dannell Ellerbe (toe/finger), S James Ihedigbo (neck), DE Pernell McPhee (thigh), DT Haloti Ngata (shoulder), TE Dennis Pitta (head), S Bernard Pollard (chest), S Ed Reed (shoulder) and LB Terrell...
Are the Ravens the league's most underrated team? It sure seems that way. After a rash of injuries knocked out a pair of starters on the defensive side of the ball, Baltimore was left for dead.
So while everyone turned away, Flacco and the still stout defensive unit have put together a quietly elite performance through ten games. Sure missing Ray Lewis in the...
