Baltimore Ravens running back Bernard Pierce was held up at gunpoint in Overbrook Park on Sunday night, police sources have told the Daily News . Pierce, 23, a Temple University alum, was standing with a cousin outside Stacey's Pizza on Drexel Road near Haverford Avenue about 5:30 p.m. when a blue car with tinted windows pulled up. A man in dark clothing emerged and pulled a handgun on Pierce, the sources said. The gunman took Pierce's wallet, cell phone and car keys, and peeled off in the NFL star's black BMW SUV, the sources said.

NEW ORLEANS - When Wilbert Montgomery ran for 194 yards against the Cowboys in the 1980 NFC championship game, few remember that his backup, Leroy Harris, had a pretty good game, too. Harris rushed for 60 yards on 10 carries and scored the Eagles second touchdown when he lumbered for 12 yards in the third quarter. Montgomery's scintillating 42-yard burst to open the scoring on that frigid Philadelphia day will always be remembered as a peak moment in the franchise's history. But Harris played an important part in getting the Eagles to their first Super Bowl.

Just think what his numbers might have been like if Temple running back Bernard Pierce had been cleared to play sooner by the NCAA Clearinghouse, and if he had not missed almost all of the Owls' last two regular-season games with a shoulder injury. All the shifty Pierce did in 10 games - he had just 13 carries combined in the team's first two outings - was lead the Mid-American Conference in rushing with 1,308 yards. Scoring 15 touchdowns, Pierce set a pair of Temple freshman records.

BALTIMORE - Two players with Philadelphia-area ties helped the Baltimore Ravens advance past the wild-card round of the NFL playoffs. Quarterback Joe Flacco, the Audubon, N.J., native and University of Delaware product, threw for 282 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions Sunday as Baltimore beat the Indianapolis Colts, 24-9, at M&T Bank Stadium. Running back Bernard Pierce, a rookie out of Temple, upstaged his Pro Bowl teammate Ray Rice by rushing for 103 yards on 13 carries.

Temple running back Bernard Pierce will not return for his senior season and will declare for the NFL draft. Pierce told the Associated Press his decision late Thursday night. Helping to turn the Owls from one of the worst programs in college football into a consistent bowl team, Pierce rushed for 3,570 yards over his three-year career with a school-record 54 touchdowns. He rushed for 100 yards on 25 carries and two touchdowns in Temple's 37-15 New Mexico Bowl victory over Wyoming in December.

Brandon McManus says his main focus is trying to help Temple win its final two football games, but the senior punter and placekicker from North Penn High also knows he is a field goal and an extra point away from adding to his legacy. McManus has 321 career points. The all-time Temple scoring leader is running back Bernard Pierce, a rookie for the Baltimore Ravens who had 324 points in three seasons at Temple from 2009 to 2011. So, with a game Saturday at Army and the regular-season finale Nov. 23 against Syracuse at Lincoln Financial Field, McManus is well within reach of the record.

Temple's unbeaten football team practiced in pads yesterday, probably the only time it'll do so in the 8 days between a win over Central Michigan and Saturday's game against Connecticut (1-1) in South Philly. "We've been real banged up," said coach Al Golden, whose Owls are 2-0 for the first time since 1981. "We're just trying to get them healthy. We were only out there for about an hour-and-45 [minutes]. We'll see how we come out of it. " Offensive lineman Wayne Tribue won't play against the Huskies.

Temple running back Bernard Pierce, who left Saturday's 47-13 victory over Kent State with a left-shoulder injury, will not suit up Friday for the Owls' Mid-American Conference showdown at Ohio. The 6-foot, 212-pound Pierce, a native of Ardmore, set Temple freshman records for rushing yards with 1,308 and touchdowns with 15. He played only during the Owls' first possession Saturday. At 9-2 overall and 7-0 in the MAC, Temple will be without its top playmaker in a game that will decide the league's East Division champion.

Temple running back Matt Brown, who served a suspension as the Owls were going through their first spring session under new coach Steve Addazio, is back in good standing and will participate in the team's preseason camp this summer. According to a source with knowledge of the situation, Brown and Addazio met Wednesday to lay out the player's immediate future. Brown, a 5-foot-5, 170-pounder, teamed with all-Mid-American Conference halfback Bernard Pierce to give Temple the best one-two tandem in the league.

INDIANAPOLIS – It has been a magical year for Temple football players Matt Ioannidis, Tyler Matakevich and Tavon Young. They played pivotal roles in the Owls' rise to national prominence and the school's first 10-win season in 36 years. Last month, they became just the eighth, ninth and 10th players in school history to participate in the prestigious Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala. And this week, they are among the more than 300 draft prospects auditioning for NFL coaches and scouts at the Scouting Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Something just didn't seem right with Temple running back Zaire Williams. He knew it and the Owls coaching staff realized it. Finally, there was a reason for the lack of explosion in his game. Williams, who will be a redshirt sophomore, had a bulging disk in his back last season. He saw limited action in the Owls' opening 37-7 win at Vanderbilt, with 17 yards on seven carries. Then an MRI exam revealed his season-ending injury. Williams said he didn't need surgery but went through strenuous rehabilitation.

Cornerback Bradley Fletcher, who bore much of the blame for the Eagles' porous pass defense last season, has signed a one-year contract with the New England Patriots, according to multiple reports. Fletcher, who played two years for the Eagles, will have a chance to compete for a starting role, according to ESPNBoston.com, which first reported the signing. The contract has a maximum value of $2.5 million, ESPN reported. Last season, Fletcher ranked 92d of 108 cornerbacks, according to the Pro Football Focus website.

FOR THE LONGEST TIME, Temple was mostly the place that got guys who were maybe an inch or so too small, a split-second too slow or 25 pounds too light. That didn't stop the Owls from getting guys such as Bernard Pierce, Muhammad Wilkerson, Jaiquawn Jarrett or Tahir Whitehead. All of them helped them win a lot of games. All are in the NFL. Three were high draft picks. One is among the best players on his team. Matt Rhule knows. The Owls' head coach was there as an assistant when they were recruited.

Temple averaged 3.5 yards per carry during a 6-6 football season, so one of the things that coach Matt Rhule was looking for was an upgrade in the backfield. Rhule, entering his third season, appears to have accomplished the goal. Of the 20 players signed by Temple on Wednesday, three are running backs, which is the strength of this recruiting class. "We were hoping to find an impact player, a skill-position player who can come in and challenge for playing time and to make plays," Rhule said at a news conference.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 7 of the 2014 season. Watch 'em roll Carson Palmer, QB, Cardinals at Raiders. With a 250-yard, two-TD, zero-INT performance in his return last week, Palmer signaled that he can be trusted in your lineup. Justin Forsett, RB, Ravens vs. Falcons. Operating mostly under the radar, Forsett has gained the fourth-most rushing yards in the league, with a whopping 6.4 yards-per-carry average. Though Bernard Pierce is sharing carries, Forsett is clearly the alpha back in Baltimore.

If the theme of Week 2 was the wicked sting of the injury bug, this weekend may go down as the dawn of the Class of 2014. Injury and ineptitude led to a changing of the guard at quarterback in Minnesota and Jacksonville, respectively. Much like Derek Carr in Oakland, both Teddy Bridgewater and Blake Bortles have stepped into less-than-desirable offensive situations and cannot be expected to prosper in the short term. Meanwhile, in Cleveland, a certain uber-hyped freshman QB still awaits his turn, perhaps because his achingly short "highlight" reel features as many yellow flags as red ones.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 3 of the 2014 season. Watch 'em roll Philip Rivers, QB, Chargers at Bills. Buffalo may be 2-0, but it has been soft in the passing game. Meanwhile, Rivers and Antonio Gates are BFFs again, and it's only a matter of time before Keenan Allen explodes. With Ryan Mathews sidelined, Rivers will need to be at his best, and he is up to the task. Bernard Pierce, RB, Ravens at Browns. Now that Pierce is seemingly locked into the lead-back role in Baltimore (with Justin Forsett taking a backseat in Week 2)

Chad Henne to Allen Hurns. I told you to expect a huge game from this dynamic duo. Jamaal Charles amasses 34 combined yards against the Titans. As predicted here. Two rushing scores for Cleveland RB Isaiah Crowell. Yes, that Isaiah Crowell. What, you didn't read those predictions? From me or anybody? That's because no one on the planet saw them coming. They're what we in the fantasy guru biz call "aberrations. " And the good news is, they are unlikely to happen again this year.

TEMPLE WENT 2-10 last season, in what was both Matt Rhule's head coaching debut and its inaugural year in the new American Conference. Yesterday the program added 25 new players. For what it's worth, rivals.com rated the class as tying for the 61st best in FBS (out of 125), with Western Michigan and Iowa. And third in the AAC, behind South Florida (39) and Cincinnati (58). Reigning champion Central Florida, which upset Baylor in the Fiesta Bowl, was next at 74. Some are suggesting it might even be the best-ever on North Broad.
