Ravens' Upshaw looking for more sacks in 2015

If Courtney Upshaw wants to follow in the footsteps of former teammates Pernell McPhee and Paul Kruger and land big money, he knows sacks are the name of the game. Upshaw, who has just three career sacks, has spent the bulk of his three-year career setting the edge on the Ravens defense against the run. With McPhee signing a five-year, $40 million deal with Chicago this offseason...

Will the Baltimore Ravens let Kelechi Osemele walk in 2016?

Two seasons ago, the Baltimore Ravens’ offensive line was a complete mess. Its star player Marshal Yanda, who’s approaching free agency next year, was battling injuries all season long. Kelechi Osemele, a fresh new face that had a brilliant rookie season in 2012, was sidelined with a back injury after seven games. Michael Oher, Gino Gradkowski and A.Q. Shipley all flopped as...

Breakout Candidates in Baltimore

Timmy JerniganJernigan is an obvious choice. The Florida State prospect was slowed by injuries last season, but really performed well when his number was called when Haloti Ngata missed the final four games of the season due to suspension. Jernigan started three of those games and performed exceptionally well. His best game was against the Jacksonville Jaguars, when Jernigan sacked...

Can the Ravens' Pass Rush Duplicate Last Season's Success?

With Pernell McPhee all but certain to cash in elsewhere during free agency, the Baltimore Ravens appear ready to absorb more changes on defense. Particularly with the pass-rush, where McPhee contributed 7.5 of the team's 49 sacks.Those 49 sacks were enough to tie with the Philadelphia Eagles for second in the NFL. And only five behind the NFL-leading Buffalo Bills’ 54. Clearly...

Ravens Upshaw Fined $16,537 For Hit On Steelers Roethlisberger

While Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger isn’t likely to soon forget the hit that he took from Baltimore Ravens linebacker Courtney Upshaw a week ago Thursday, Upshaw’s bank account could be the thing that is ultimately hurt the most. According to a Friday evening report by the Baltimore Sun, Upshaw has been fined $16,537 by […] Ravens Upshaw Fined $16,537...

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger Still Hurting From Thursday Night Hit

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger wasn’t at his best in the Thursday night loss to the Baltimore Ravens as he missed on several of his throws. Part of Roethlisberger’s accuracy problems in that game, however, might very well have been a result of the hard hit that took from Ravens linebacker Courtney Upshaw during the Steelers […] Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger...

Garbage. Steelers Lose.

It is going to be a long season. Jump. FIRST QUARTER The Steelers don’t do much at first, but Courtney Upshaw headbutts Ben Roelithsberger. You aren’t allowed to hit quarterbacks. Automatic first downs. Career roughing count: 9 A screen pass to Wheaton nets a first down. Le’Veon Bell shows some impressive patience on a run that actually works for a first down. That guy who...

WATCH: Baltimore Ravens LB Courtney Upshaw Absolutely Drills Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger in to the Turf

One of the better rivalries in the NFL these days is the one between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers. Both teams are typically pretty good and contend for a spot in the playoffs and have a similar mentality--hit or be hit. They don't mess around and try to get pretty on plays. They are blue collar, hard-working, drive the ball down your throat kind of football teamsSo...

Romo's back holds up, and now it's on to Dolphins

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) The first time Tony Romo set up to pass, he had to twist slightly and move forward in the pocket before zipping a throw to Dez Bryant. When Romo botched a handoff for a fumble a few plays later, the Dallas quarterback found himself hanging onto Baltimore's Courtney Upshaw with one hand, unsuccessfully trying to prevent a touchdown. The good news, following...

Ravens Linebacker Up To 300 Pounds?

Baltimore Ravens third-year outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw is generating some buzz this offseason—but unlike a lot of players it’s not for off-the-field trouble or his on-field performance. The former 2012 second round pick (No. 35 overall) out of Alabama—who was called out by coach John Harbaugh last year for “eating too much”—continues to struggle to stay in shape...

The Ravens Need More from Outside Linebackers

Strictly on paper, the Ravens have a fantastic group of outside linebackers. Elvis Dumervil and Terrell Suggs registered 19.5 sacks last year and somewhat lived up to the lofty expectations set for the duo before the season started. The key word is "somewhat." Going into 2013, I thought Suggs and Dumervil could easily have 25 sacks combined. It sure looked like they were on that...
