Ravens strong safety Bernard Pollard left the game to undergo X-rays, returning to the sideline afterward without his shoulder pads.
Pollard appeared to injure his chest area during a sack of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick.
Pollard executed a diving interception of a Vick pass earlier in the game.
Pollard emerged last season as one of the Ravens' top defensive players because of his hard-hitting style and improved pass coverage.

Yes, the Baltimore Ravens and Joe Flacco looked amazing last Monday Night against a division rival and yes the offense probably played the best game you’ve ever seen them play. The defense, while only giving up 13 points did bend a bit to the inside running game. Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Eagles struggled to beat a perennially rebuilding Browns team.
So, why am I telling you...
Ray Lewis is one football who has no problem speaking his mind. When he does speak we all listen. Especially when it’s him preaching about why the NFL needs to bring back the normal refs because the replacements are just simply not good enough based on the high level play taking place on the field.Today’s 24-23 Ravens loss at Philadelphia came with some controversy in the closing...

They took my handcuffs off Juan…
Joe Flacco tore it up last Monday night. He threw the ball down the field with the greatest of ease. The Ravens have been protecting Flacco for too long and now they have unleashed him. Haven’t we seen this before from Cam Cameron?
I love Flacco’s talent and his weapons. I don’t trust that Cameron will continue to let him run the...
This is becoming a recurring theme each week this NFL season. Replacement officials botch a few calls that have an impact on the outcome of certain games, and then players gripe about the lack of quality in the officiating. But the reality is that players are justified in their assessments. Ray Lewis is just the most recent example of a player taking issue with the replacement refs...
This game is a tough one to pick this early in the season. It’s not real clear how either team, the Ravens or Eagles, will be this season.
Baltimore looked dominant Monday night and the Eagles won their game against the Browns, but turned the ball over five times.
For this week, I’m rolling with the home team.

This touchdown pass from Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco to WR Jacoby Jones gave their team a 14-7 lead over the Philadelphia Eagles midway through the second quarter on Sunday.

Joe Flacco had the ball on target and a Ravens touchdown in Joe Jacoby's grasp.
Flacco's celebration was short lived.
Jacoby was whistled for offensive pass interference and the TD was wiped out. What should have been a 10-point lead turned into a field goal two plays later. The penalty and lost touchdown came back to cost Baltimore in a 24-23 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles...
