Greeting the start of the new Ravens season today might feel a lot like anticipating what's under the tree while padding downstairs on Christmas morning.

Apparently the Pittsburgh Steelers complained about the Ravens chop blocking, and it was only a matter of time before NFL teams called the Ravens out. The Ravens are using a blocking scheme similar to the one used in Denver when John Elway was the...

Terrence Cody isn’t a highlight machine or a stats maniac, but the nose tackle has been a factor in the defense’s performance this season.

Joe Flacco completed only 12 of 19 passes for 102 yards, but he was effective and was impressive in making plays outside the pocket. The touchdown passes to T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Derrick Mason were beauties, but Flacco missed Anquan...
