Ray Lewis generally isn't hospitable toward running backs that aren't employed by the Ravens. Throughout his career, the inside linebacker has made a habit of treating opposing running backs like the enemy.
But Lewis took a different path when asked...

After nine months away from Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf, I forgot how maddening it was to watch the second-string unit from CBS Sports try to telecast a Ravens game.
Players misidentified, random images inexplicably popping up on the screen, key...

I know I will probably never hear a seriously negative word about the NFL on its owned and operated cable channel. But I have to admit, I almost always enjoy watching the Baltimore Ravens on the NFL Network.
I was reminded Thursday again of what a...

CBS came into Saturday’s game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Denver Broncos with a clear story line in its mind: Peyton Manning is God, and all our cameras and announcers are here to worship him.

The Ravens were finally deemed worthy by CBS Sports of its first-string broadcast team, and what a difference it made in the quality of the telecast -- for one half, anyway.
While the first half was outstanding in terms of production and imagery, the...

'NBC Sunday Night Football' isn't just in a league of its own when it comes to NFL telecasts. It lives on another planet so far away from the nearest competition that it can't even be judged by the same standards. And last night's broadcast of the...

CBS Sports hit a new low in its coverage of the Baltimore Ravens and San Diego Chargers, and that’s really saying something for this sorry outfit. The network literally missed the opening kickoff.
In 30 years of writing about television and...

As the Ravens prepare for Sunday's AFC North road showdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers, it remains unclear who will start at left offensive guard.
Although veteran Bobbie Williams' sprained left ankle has improved and he was limited in practice...
