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 nine sacks tied a franchise record, accomplished twice previously. San Francisco (9-2)

BALTIMORE - The only two NFL starting quarterbacks from the Philadelphia area met at midfield 90 minutes before the Baltimore Ravens' 29-7 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Audubon's Joe Flacco, the Ravens' Super Bowl-winning quarterback, faced Exton native Matt Ryan, a Pro Bowl passer with the Falcons, for just the second time in their NFL careers. Ryan, a Penn Charter alum, asked a bout Flacco's family. Flacco, who went to Audubon High School, asked Ryan how many people he knew coming down I-95 for the game.

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.

Before the season, the big talk was about Dylan Cummings of Pennsville and Tom Flacco of Eastern becoming the first quarterbacks in South Jersey history to pass for more than 6,000 yards. That was off by only 1,000 yards. Cummings and Flacco each have passed 7,000 career yards. Cummings likely will soar past 7,500 on Friday night. Flacco likely will move into third place on the state's all-time list on Friday night, behind only Cummings and Butler High School's Scott Brown. "To hit 7,000 is a pretty nice accomplishment," Flacco said.

You can't hurdle in high school football. It's a lesson Tom Flacco had learned the hard way throughout his career. Leaping over an opposing player results in a 15-yard penalty. But here was Flacco, in the first quarter of Friday night's 44-21 home win over Clearview, weaving his way down the sideline and hurdling - with eye-popping success - an opposing player. Cue the flags. "But it's just instinct," Flacco said. "And that's how I play the game. " On a 19-yard completion to Keeshawn Segers in the fourth quarter, Flacco became just the second quarterback in South Jersey history to reach 6,000 yards passing.

Tom Flacco looks at people funny when they ask if he's uncomfortable with his big brother's success. "It's like they think I'm mad he's in the NFL," Flacco said of his oldest brother, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco. "I'm like, 'Are you crazy?' I think it's awesome. " On the brink of his senior year at Eastern High School, Tom Flacco has more than a notable football name. He has a remarkable football game. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Flacco fashioned one of the best seasons ever by a South Jersey high school quarterback as a junior: 2,957 yards and 25 touchdowns in leading Eastern to a 7-4 record and a berth in the South Jersey Group 5 semifinals.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. - Joe Flacco understands the lofty expectations that come with a Super Bowl ring and a new $120.1 million contract. He couldn't care less. The Baltimore Ravens quarterback and a graduate of Audubon High School scoffed at the idea that he is under pressure to excel this season, now that he's the reigning Super Bowl MVP and owns a six-year contract that, at the time, was the richest in NFL history. "All we can do is go out there and keep winning, just like we have every year we've been here and not really worry about what people say and what the expectations are," Flacco said Tuesday.

He passed for 2,957 yards last season as a football quarterback. That was the fourth-highest total in South Jersey history. His brother is a fairly famous football player. But Tom Flacco plays a little baseball, too. "He's improved by leaps and bounds," Eastern coach Rob Christ said of Flacco's development as a baseball player in his junior season. Flacco scored two runs and drove in two as Eastern beat Haddon Township, 11-3, on Tuesday night in the semifinals of the Camden County tournament.
