Longtime Ravens kicker Matt Stover will be honored before Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Stover, the kicker on Baltimore's Super Bowl XXXV championship team, retired after he spent the 2009 season with the Indianapolis Colts.
During the 2000 season, Stover carried the offense for a five game period. Those five games saw the Ravens not get in the end zone for 21 straight quarters. They went 3-2 during that period of time.
Stover, at least to me, is one of the most beloved Ravens of all time because of his clutch field goals.

We used to joke that no one beats the bye. Luckily, the Colts likely can't lose either according to Reggie Hayes:
Curtis Painter walked off the field Sunday and saw his shadow. That means six more weeks of bad Colts football.
I should clarify. We'll have one week of no Colts football – they have a bye next Sunday and are currently three-point favorites – before the...
Next man up right? After Curtis Painter struggled Dan Orlovsky took the field last week against the Jaguars. He'd like to come off the bye week with a starting job:

The Colts now have a two-game lead in the Suck For Luck race, all but ensuring themselves a shot at drafting Peyton Manning’s eventual replacement. The only thing standing in their way could be Manning’s objection.
Apparently that won’t be an issue.
According to an AP report, Bill Polian stated “Peyton and I have spoken about [drafting his successor], and he’s OK with that...
Colts QB Curtis Painter is far from the only reason the club is 0-10 and the front-runner in the Andrew Luck derby but his recent struggles have led to his benching in each of the past two losses. Although head coach Jim Caldwell has been noncommittal to naming a starter for the club's Week 12 contest against Carolina, Pro Football Weekly hears it is likely Painter again will...
Dwight Freeney knows where to go to take his mind off a forgettable NFL season. The bye weekend off means an escape to New York. It always has for the Indianapolis Colts defensive end. If you're a handsome eligible bachelor who makes millions, what's not to like?

Fantasy Advice: At this point, does it really matter if he does come back? The Colts have been eliminated from the playoffs several weeks ago, but it sounds like the team has no intentions of placing Clark on injured reserve. Last year’s waiver-wire here...
Bill Polian says the Indianapolis Colts may look for Peyton Manning's successor in the next NFL draft.
Without discussing specific names, Polian, the Colts' vice chairman, told radio listeners he had already spoken with Manning about using Indy's first-round draft pick on a quarterback and that Manning is ''fine'' with that.
Speculation, of course, has...
This tweet from Colts' owner Jim Irsay made me bust up laughing instantly:
The Indianapolis Colts won't hold back on drafting Peyton Manning's replacement this year if the right player is available.
Colts vice chairman Bill Polian said he’s already discussed that possibility with his All-Pro quarterback, and Manning is on board.
“The bottom line is that if the right person is there, and it has to be the right person, then now is the time to...
Here’s a fun game of Internet telephone, in which Adam Schefter not reporting anything led to a report of reports about a report.
1. In his weekly Monday mailbag, the ESPN.com reporter and longtime Shanahan confidante received a question about the Redskins’ endless search for a franchise quarterback.

Polian says the Colts have talked with Manning about drafting a QB. I thought I had read quotes a couple of weeks ago about Manning understanding if the Colts have to take Luck, so I didn't really think this was news. Does anyone know the quote I'm referring to?
I did a quick down and dirty look at...
