When police answered a neighbor's call and entered a Logan home last night, they found three young children unattended. They also found the dead body of the children's mother. "She was dead not even 24 hours," said Sgt. Christopher Flacco of the North Detectives Division, who declined to name the woman. Other investigators, however, identified her as Shawna Ray Davis, 32. She died of unknown causes, investigators said, and an autopsy is scheduled for today. The death has been classified as suspicious.

BALTIMORE - As far as first six seasons of an NFL career go, the list of quarterbacks with more regular-season wins than Matt Ryan is short. Exceptionally short. It reads: Flacco, Joe. The only two current NFL starting quarterbacks from the Philadelphia area will forever be tied as the only players at their position drafted in the first round of the 2008 draft. Both experienced early success, Flacco, from Audubon, N.J., earning Super Bowl MVP honors two seasons ago and Ryan, the pride of Exton, claiming rookie of the year and making four postseason appearances in his first five seasons.

BALTIMORE - In their first game, the Baltimore Ravens did nothing to quiet the Super Bowl talk that surrounded the team throughout the preseason. With Joe Flacco leading a new big-play, up-tempo offense that often included no huddle, Baltimore opened with 44-13 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday night at M&T Bank Stadium. Next up for the Ravens is Sunday's 1 p.m. matchup against the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. It's safe to say that if the Eagles have the same mistake-filled performance in their second game, the result won't match the first.

As three children played in the run-down Logan rowhouse, the lifeless, partially clothed body of their mother lay for as long as 24 hours in a bedroom, where the police found it last night. Shawna Ray Davis, 32, was found dead in an upstairs bedroom of a home on 19th Street near Wingohocking at 6:14 p.m. The cause of her death wasn't immediately known, but cops said it was suspicious. When police entered the brick home, they found Davis' three children, aged 1, 2 and 4, playing.

LANDOVER, Md. - Robert Griffin III walked gingerly through the Washington Redskins locker room Sunday, his sprained right knee in a big black brace. Teammates stood at their lockers, mixing the emotions of a 31-28 overtime win over the Baltimore Ravens (9-4) with the fear that their franchise player could be seriously hurt. Griffin went down on Washington's final drive of regulation, with his team trailing by eight. Fellow rookie Kirk Cousins, who had played in only one other game, stepped in and hit Pierre Garcon for an 11-yard touchdown pass with 29 seconds left, then ran the quarterback draw for the two-point conversion.

A West Oak Lane woman was on the phone with a neighbor yesterday when she heard the shot. She immediately ran into her neighbor's house, raced upstairs and found 3-year-old Daequan Irvin lying in a pool of blood. Amid the screaming of the toddler's father, Kyle Irvin, and his girlfriend - both of whom were in the house at the time of the shooting - the woman, who didn't want her name used, phoned police. Police said yesterday that the toddler had suffered a gunshot wound to the left eye, apparently self-inflicted, about 12:30 p.m. while playing with a gun in his home on Mohican Street near Lowber.

Ravens 16, 49ers 6 BALTIMORE - Baltimore sacked Alex Smith nine times and beat San Francisco to give John Harbaugh an emotional charge in the first NFL game featuring brothers as opposing head coaches. The Ravens (8-3) chased, hindered, and battered Smith for much of the night despite playing without middle linebacker Ray Lewis, who was inactive for a second straight game with a foot injury. The nine sacks tied a franchise record, accomplished twice previously. San Francisco (9-2)

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.

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.

Some of the toughest tests for the Eagles defense during the last two summers came when they trained with the New England Patriots. There are no joint practices with the Patriots this summer, so there is no opportunity for Tom Brady to pick on Curtis Marsh. But the Baltimore Ravens are in Philadelphia this week, and Audubon native Joe Flacco provides a good measuring stick for the Eagles' new-look secondary. The results were promising Wednesday - at least on the first of three days of work.

CHIP KELLY saw Joe Flacco coming from 400 miles away. In Newark, Del., on the last day of September 2006, Flacco threw for 315 yards and three touchdowns in a 52-49 home loss to New Hampshire, where Kelly was offensive coordinator. "I knew how good Joe was going to be a long time ago," Kelly said yesterday. That happened to be the turnaround game for Flacco, the one that secured for him the starting job with the Blue Hens as a junior who had transferred from Pitt. Kelly, as is maddeningly usual, was right.

MANY IN EAGLES nation saw the photo tweeted in May of Sam Bradford stopping to grab a pie at a Haddonfield pizzeria. Joe Flacco was born in that quadrant of the nation, grew up in nearby Audubon, and in a strange crossing of the stars, now owns a home in the same neighborhood from the rented home where Bradford took that pie to eat. Guess who didn't come to dinner? Guess who didn't see the photo, didn't even know until a casual conversation with Eagles coach Chip Kelly this week that he is one-half of what must be some sort of NFL record - two starting quarterbacks from two NFL towns living two blocks away from each other.

Everything you need to know about Tom Flacco as an athlete and a person was on display in the winter. He was a football star who could have spent those cold months lifting weights and doing drills to improve his gridiron game. He also was a baseball star who could have focused on work in the batting cage. Instead, Flacco played basketball. He wasn't a basketball star. But he was a valuable member of a good basketball team. "What Tom brought to our basketball program was a desire and drive to win and never be outworked," Eastern boys' basketball coach Joe Murphy said.

Tom Flacco was surprised and honored. Flacco, an Eastern High School senior, was selected by the Phillies in the 32d round of the MLB draft Saturday. "I didn't even know they were following me," Flacco said. "It's a great honor. " Flacco, who has a football scholarship offer from Western Michigan, said he was likely to "play football" but didn't want to rule out signing with the Phillies until he had more discussions with the organization. Flacco, a speedy lefthanded swinger, batted .506 with eight doubles, six triples, and 30 RBIs as a shortstop for Eastern.
