When the Ravens inked their punter, Sam Koch, to a 5-year extension worth $12.5 million, they were giving a nod of confidence to the right leg of the former Nebraska Cornhusker. Many people would group Sam Koch in the “elite” category for punters, and he is paid as such, being accredited by different sources as the sixth-to-eighth highest paid punter in the league. Any a...
The Baltimore Ravens are expected to let punter Sam Koch go.
By cutting Koch the Ravens could save $1.6 million against the cap according to ESPN’s Jamison Hensley. He was 22nd in net average in 2013 and was 13th in punts inside the 20-yard line.
If the Ravens cut Koch expect them to target a punter in the mid rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft.
With each punt that sails out of bounds or bounces into the end zone, the frustration mounts for Sam Koch.
The Ravens punter has been through a lot in his eight years in Baltimore, with many more memories worth savoring than ones he wishes he could kick to the curb. But the 31-year-old said this "little rough spot" over the past four games has been the most maddening stretch...
The Packers had a rough start to the day on offense. Fortunately, their defense was pulling out all the stops to make plays.
After putting up yet another impressive defensive stand midway through the first half, the Packers forced the Ravens to punt on a 4th-and-13. But when Sam Koch tried to get the kick off, a Packers defender streaked out in front of him and got a piece of the...
The Baltimore Ravens won the game but the question in Las Vegas is how much was bet and won on the Super Bowl.
Bookmakers are projecting a moderate profit, despite losing big on proposition bets, including a long-shot on whether there would be a safety. Ravens punter Sam Koch took a safety for the final score with 4 seconds left.
The San Francisco 49ers started out as 4 1/2-point...

The Baltimore Ravens held off the San Francisco 49ers to win Super Bowl XLVIII, 34-31. The Ravens dominated the 49ers on both sides of the ball from the coin toss until punter Sam Koch ran out of the side of the end zone for a safety to kill the clock down instead of punting.The 49ers played a terrible game minus the 3rd quarter after the lights came back on after a lengthy delay...
A solid first drive ended with a Sam Koch. The first down on the first drive was positive. What happened on Koch’s punt was not.
Punt returner Trindon Holliday took one back 90 yards to give the Broncos a 7-0 lead early in the first quarter.
Not a good start for the Ravens.
It seemed to be the ultimate rub-it-in indignity. Already leading by 24 points as the third quarter was winding down, the Baltimore Ravens lined up for a chip-shot field goal on one of the few times the Raiders defense managed to get off the field on third down. Holder Sam Koch, however, took the snap from center, then veered to his left, and ran into the end zone for a touchdown...
Remember Sam Koch's seemingly-unnecessary two-point conversion scored on a fake extra point in the 35-7 win over the Steelers in Week 1? You can be sure the Steelers do, and I'm guessing it will be a popular topic of discussion this week as the Ravens and Steelers gear up for Sunday night's rematch in Pittsburgh.
