Evesham Township, don't try to call your mayor Sunday night. Randy Brown will be at the New Orleans Superdome, pacing the sidelines, barking instructions, and holding his breath each time a field-goal attempt tumbles toward the uprights during what he calls "the greatest game in sports. " The Super Bowl. "It's something you dream about as a kid," Brown, a kicking consultant for the Baltimore Ravens, said from New Orleans. He arrived Tuesday with the rest of the team. The Ravens will play the San Francisco 49ers for the right to wear the NFL's diamond-studded championship ring.

NEW ORLEANS - Joe Flacco is an Ordinary Joe no more. In a game that will forever be known as the Blackout Bowl, the Baltimore Ravens survived a near collapse following a 34-minute delay after the Superdome lost power, then rode their steady quarterback to beat the San Francisco 49ers, 34-31, in Super Bowl XLVII on Sunday night. Flacco, the Audubon, N.J., native who has been criticized for his placid demeanor, was voted the Super Bowl's most valuable player. He completed 22 of 33 passes for 287 yards and three touchdowns.

NEW ORLEANS - At least in the Colonial Conference, the lights usually work. In the stadiums that have lights, that is.  Joe Flacco, the quarterback from tiny Audubon (N.J.) High and the University of Delaware, didn't let the first-ever Super Bowl blackout faze him. Didn't let San Francisco's furious second-half comeback, which started right after the 34-minute blackout, faze him. Didn't let much of anything faze him.  Flacco was flawless in the Baltimore Ravens' 34-31 Super Bowl XLVII victory over the 49ers, who nearly accomplished the impossible but eventually found they'd made one or two too many key mistakes.  "I don't think it's sunk in that we're here, let alone that we won the thing," Flacco said from an interview podium deep underneath the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, after he watched the confetti fall and was honored as the game MVP.  The 49ers finally died at the Baltimore 5, after a 33-yard Frank Gore run gave them first-and-goal from the 7 with more than 2 minutes to score the winning touchdown.

AS EXPECTED, the Eagles signed former Oregon quarterback Dennis Dixon to a 2-year contract Thursday. Dixon, 28, was on the Baltimore Ravens' practice squad this past season. He was a fifth-round draft pick of the Steelers in 2008, after starring for the Ducks under then-offensive coordinator Chip Kelly. Dixon's Kelly ties probably will make him useful in helping the other quarterbacks understand Kelly and his system. He is not expected to start ahead of Michael Vick or Nick Foles.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. - The Baltimore Ravens have acquired center A.Q. Shipley from the Indianapolis Colts for a conditional 2014 draft pick.

Placed purposefully around Gary Tuggle's new office are small treasures picked up on past assignments: a Don Quixote statue recognizing his work in Trinidad, a Baltimore Ravens cap from his hometown, and, from a visit to Colombia, three dried opium poppies. "I use them as inspiration," he said of the flowers whose seed pods are the source of heroin. "Every time I look at them, it reminds me of how bad the problem is in this country, and how much needs to be done to combat it. " In June, Tuggle reported to work as special agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration's Philadelphia Field Division, which covers Pennsylvania and Delaware.

Joe Douglas called a top Baltimore Ravens executive in the fall of 2007 about a tall quarterback at Delaware who was not yet viewed as a top NFL draft prospect. Douglas, then a Northeast area scout for the Ravens and now the Eagles' vice president of player personnel, was enthralled by Joe Flacco. He attended Flacco's games and practices, watched film, and notified Ravens assistant general manager Eric DeCosta about the Audubon native. "He had an enthusiasm in his voice that, knowing Joe, he's not the type of guy who is going to get real excited about anything," DeCosta said.

JOE DOUGLAS, described by a source close to the situation as the "top candidate" to direct Eagles personnel under Howie Roseman, is scheduled to interview for the job Thursday, and could be officially hired very quickly after that. An NFL observer who knows Douglas well called him "a worker bee" Wednesday - a well-regarded scout who keeps a low public profile, and wouldn't mind reporting to Roseman, the former general manager restored to power by team chairman Jeffrey Lurie at the end of the 2015 season.

They came together in the NFL, John Harbaugh as a rookie head coach after serving as an Eagles assistant for 10 seasons and Joe Flacco, then a first-year quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens in 2008. The two enjoyed remarkable success together. and when the Ravens visit Cleveland on Monday, it will be the first time Harbaugh will coach with a different starter at quarterback. Flacco, the star from Audubon High in Camden County and the University of Delaware, suffered a season-ending knee injury during Sunday's 16-13 win over St. Louis.

DECLARING the Eagles "out of the X-play business" was easier said than done, first-year defensive backfield coach Cory Undlin discovered Monday night in Atlanta. "Is that the way we pictured it? No. But it is what it is now. Nothing I can do about it. Nothing the players can do about. So we watched the tape, we talked about what we need to get better at, and we came out and practiced to get better at it," Undlin said Thursday, after his group allowed five 20-plus-yard completions against the Falcons.

NELSON AGHOLOR knows he isn't a finished product. If the Eagles' first-round rookie wideout wasn't clear on this, he got an abrupt reminder just before halftime of Saturday's Eagles preseason romp over the Baltimore Ravens. Agholor made a scapel-sharp cut to get open for Mark Sanchez' pass, which Agholor caught just on the Ravens' side of midfield, the clock ticking down inside 40 seconds. Ravens corner Cassius Vaughn tried to wrestle Agholor down, while Agholor fought to get out of bounds, to stop the clock.

Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh was not happy with those on the Eagles who were critical of Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs for his hit on Sam Bradford in Saturday's preseason game. Eagles tackle Jason Peters called Suggs "dirty" and the hit a "cheap shot" after the game. "When you start popping off about somebody's character, you've crossed the line," Harbaugh told reporters. "That's not really something that we respect. But most of those guys understood the play and understood that [No.]

Sam Bradford wanted to take a hit Saturday night. The Eagles quarterback never could have imagined the first one he withstood. On the sixth snap of Bradford's only drive in the Eagles' 40-17 win over the Baltimore Ravens, Bradford handed the ball to Darren Sproles. After the handoff, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs lunged into the left knee of an unsuspecting Bradford. It was the same knee that required two surgeries and is the biggest variable in the Eagles season. "You would have to ask him, but I think that's what he was trying to do," Bradford said.

Sam Bradford waited 364 days to play 235 seconds. One series covering 12 plays, and the quarterback's preseason debut with the Eagles on Saturday night was over. It was more of a pop quiz than an endurance test for the twice surgically repaired left knee that limited Bradford to seven games during his final two seasons with the St. Louis Rams. He was pleased to have passed it. "I was excited. I was nervous. There were a lot of emotions," Bradford said after the Eagles' 40-17 preseason rout of the Baltimore Ravens.
