This week the 2-1 Baltimore Ravens travel to Ralph Wilson Stadium in Buffalo to face the 1-2 Bills Sunday at 1 p.m. Rumor has it, if there’s time, the players are holding out hope that coach Harbaugh will allow a stop at Buffalo Wild Wings for a delicious team meal. BWW is a little known, locals’ favorite establishment that has stuck to its roots by continuing to offer fine quality organic cuisine at affordable prices, and not franchising into every shopping center across the country, serving food not fit to be thrown in a dumpster, and barraging TV viewers with mindless commercials like you see all too often these days.Just ask former Ravens and Bills running back Willis McGahee. McGahee nearly refused his trade to the Ravens back in 2007 in order to remain close to his favorite hangout. What a place!Here are some keys to the game:Touchdown Torrey?As the unquestioned leader of a young receiving corps with many new pieces, third-year speedster Torrey Smith appears to be embracing hi...

Joe Flacco responds to Ray Lewis' leadership comments

One thing I hate is when a former NFL players blasts his former team not too long after leaving. After the incident with Jacoby Jones this weekend, former Baltimore Ravens star Ray Lewis did just that. He blasted the team and their leadership, saying they have none. What I do like is when a current player fires back and that’s exactly what Joe Flacco did but in subtle ways....

Joe Flacco Moves on From McDonalds to Carrabba’s

Ravens will road-test E.J. Manuel in Buffalo...

I would say E.J. Manuel is possibly the Rookie of the Month for September. Although the Buffalo Bills, who drafted the QB in the first round out of Florida State, are only 1-2 record-wise going into this Sunday's game, it certainly appears they have found a genuine quarterback who can lead them into parts unknown in the future. Manuel will be a challenge for the Ravens defense...

Joe Flacco on Ray Lewis' leadership comments: 'Ray knows better'
