BALTIMORE - City marketing officials say they are hopeful about attracting more Army-Navy games. The annual college football clash is traditionally played in Philadelphia, but Baltimore has hosted the game four times, most recently in 2000 and 2007, and the academies have been soliciting bids from other cities. Baltimore officials say they met last month with the selection committee considering sites for games from 2010 through 2014 and touted M&T Bank Stadium's proximity to the Inner Harbor and other attractions.

Avoiding a negative reaction and potentially ugly scene, the Cleveland Browns will honor a request by Art Modell's family and not acknowledge the former owner's death before Sunday's game against the Eagles. The Browns had planned an "appropriate recognition" for Modell, who died on Thursday at the age of 87. But Modell's son David spoke to Browns president Mike Holmgren and asked the team not do anything to recognize the late owner, who remains vilified by many Cleveland fans for moving his team to Baltimore, where they became the Ravens, after the 1995 season.

The defense matches its nickname, ravenous with the ability to rip the heart out of any NFL team. The offense, on the other hand, is another story. The Baltimore Ravens, who visit the Eagles on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field, are a team of extremes. In yesterday's 20-6 win over the slumbering Buffalo Bills at M&T Bank Stadium, Baltimore continued a pattern that has existed since it won the Super Bowl in the 2000 season. Led by snarling linebacker Ray Lewis, who had 12 tackles, the Ravens are a team that wins with defense and hopes not to lose on offense.

There's somebody out there who still believes the Eagles' Andy Reid is a good football coach. Actually, there's more than one person, but the number is definitely dwindling. John Harbaugh, head coach of the Baltimore Ravens, still believes. "The Eagles are always at their best when times are toughest," Harbaugh told reporters Monday in Baltimore. "If you go back through Andy Reid's history, that's what the Eagles have been about, and that's what we're going to get. We're going to get the real Eagles.

Trent Cole's eyes widened and his smile broadened when he was asked how to deal with a quarterback the approximate size of an oak tree, such as Baltimore's 6-foot-6 rookie, Joe Flacco. "Hit him hard. Hit him high. Hit him low," the Eagles defensive end said yesterday. First, though, the Eagles will have to carve out a few pathways to get to the 23-year-old Flacco, the Ravens' first-round draft choice from Audubon High and the University of Delaware. The best way to do that, the Eagles know all too well, is to disrupt Flacco's comfort by keeping the Ravens' running attack under control.

It was a great day to be a Baltimore Ravens rookie from the Philadelphia area. Quarterback Joe Flacco and linebacker Jameel McClain both had huge days for the Ravens during Baltimore's 36-7 rout of the Eagles yesterday at M&T Bank Stadium. Flacco, under heavy pressure from the Eagles' defense in the first half, started slow but finished strong. He completed 12 of 26 passes for 183 yards and two touchdowns. Flacco was 7 for 10 for 124 yards in the second half, including a 53-yard touchdown to Mark Clayton that put the Ravens up, 22-7.

This game was big, for their season and for their sanity, and to a man, the Baltimore Ravens knew it. Only five times since the NFL expanded to a 16-game schedule in 1978 has a team lost its first two games to divisional opponents and regrouped to make the playoffs. A loss yesterday to the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Ravens would be staring at 0-2, and explaining how a group that predicted it would contend for the Super Bowl had fallen so far so fast. With great help from its defense, Baltimore averted disaster and beat the Steelers, 30-13, before the second-largest crowd ever (69,859)

T.O. did not go. When the Eagles boarded a bus to Baltimore yesterday for tonight's game against the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium, wide receiver Terrell Owens was not along for the ride. Coach Andy Reid said Owens is still recovering from a groin injury. "Really, he's just getting back into the swing of things," Reid said. "He was hurt before he left, and he's still bothered by that groin. It's not near as bad as it was when he left, but I didn't want to take any chances. That would be nonproductive.

Those who would chase the Patriots in the AFC begin, again, from behind. New England is already on the board in this 2005 season, having throttled the Raiders on Thursday night. So the Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens, each holding conference-title aspirations, had to get going. Only the Colts looked ready for the challenge last night, quieting a record crowd of 70,501 at M&T Bank Stadium that was hoping to see the Ravens live up to their incessant verbal self-hype about how tough and ornery a defense they have.

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.
