Tyrod Taylor has learned the Baltimore Ravens playbook. He understands what it takes to be part of an NFL team, and has adjusted to being a rookie quarterback in a locker room filled with veteran leaders. The most significant lesson he's received this year, however, is how to be patient. Taylor was a star at Virginia Tech before the Ravens selected him in the sixth round of the 2011 draft. He made the team as the backup to sturdy Joe Flacco, who hasn't missed a start throughout his entire four-year career. Taylor watched 11 straight games watching from the sideline before getting his first taste of action last Sunday against the Cleveland Browns. The rookie says he's been ''very patient'' thus far and acknowledges he's going through a ''learning process.''

Ravens Control Own Destiny for Top AFC Playoff Spot

I had heard some rumblings about this before, but Jamison Hensley of ESPN confirmed it today. If the Ravens win their remaining four games, they will earn the AFC’s #1 seed and home field advantage throughout the playoffs, regardless of what the other teams in the race (New England, Houston) do from here on out. The Ravens would capture the top seed in the AFC for the first time...

Richards: Ray Rice is good news for Indy

Most teams would dread facing Ray Rice but Phil Richards says in light of their depleted secondary Rice is a better matchup for the Colts: There's no mystery regarding how the Baltimore Ravens like to attack. They give the football to running back Ray Rice and trample you. That might be a good thing for the Indianapolis Colts, who will be challenged to defend the pass with...

If the Season Ended Today, the Ravens would have the No. 2 Seed in the Playoffs

If the season ended today, the Baltimore Ravens would receive the No. 2 seed and a first-round bye in the playoffs. The only other time the Ravens have earned a first-round bye in their brief existence was in 2006. The New England Patriots would earn the No. 1 seed because they have a better conference [...]

Lewis, Cundiff miss practice

Alright, so we know inside linebacker Ray Lewis hasn't practiced or played in a little while. Nothing new there. He didn't practice Thursday afternoon either. The worry though, is kicker Billy Cundiff. According to reports, the Ravens' kicker missed practice Thursday afternoon with a left calf injury. I expect Cundiff to play, but it's notable because he didn...

Carr waiting until he's '100 percent' to return

Ravens' Suggs: Winless Colts as 'just as big a threat' as anyone

Terrell Suggs remembers losing to a winless team

Four years ago, the 1-15 Dolphins got their one win against the Ravens.  On Sunday, the 0-12 Colts will try (or “try”) to get their first win against the Ravens. And Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs remembers the last time well.  Or at least pretty well. “I lost to a 0-for team,” Suggs recently told the…

The Military Bowl and Baltimore

The oddest part of these photos isn’t that they involve two NFL running backs holding a mini-football with photoshopped googly-eyes in an effort to promote a somewhat obscure college bowl game. Ok, fine, I take it back, that is the oddest part of these photos. But the second-oddest part has to be that both men — Vontae Leach and Ray Rice — play for the Baltimore Ravens. And...

Still no word on Week 15 flex decision

On Tuesday night, the league said that a decision regarding whether Ravens-Chargers will be flexed out of prime time will be made on Wednesday.  The Ravens said it would come Wednesday morning. If it has been made, it has yet to be shared. As of this posting, the NFL has not announced whether Ravens-Chargers will…

Harbaugh chimes in on Flacco's Fu Manchu

It took two weeks -- and two Ravens victories -- but coach John Harbaugh has finally been peppered with a hard-hitting question about Joe Flacco’s facial hair. Flacco and tight end Dennis Pitta first sported Fu Manchu mustaches during the win over the San Francisco 49ers and the Ravens are now 2-0 with them sporting the look.
