Recent history: The Eagles defeated the Ravens on Oct. 31, 2004 at the Linc, 15-10. The Eagles lead the series, 1-0-1.   Offense   Eagles: 363.8 yards per game (6th) Ravens: 318.3 yards per game (19th)   Quarterback   Eagles: Donovan McNabb is going through one of those maddening periods again where he looks like he's never played before. In the last four games, he's completed just 53.8 percent of his passes and turned the ball over seven times. He's an abysmal 6-for-27 in the first quarter of those four games.

The Baltimore Ravens discovered what the Eagles found out a week ago - it's no fun right now playing the New York Giants. The Ravens (6-4) will surely not be in the best of moods when they host the Eagles on Sunday after yesterday's 30-10 loss at Giants Stadium. Of course the Eagles can't be feeling too good after yesterday's 13-13 tie with the Cincinnati Bengals. The Eagles will be facing a streaky Ravens team, sort of like a mirror image of themselves. Yesterday's loss snapped a four-game win streak for the Ravens.

They're knocking. The good ol' boys are knocking, and they're looking for Marvin Lewis. Herm Edwards, the Buccaneers' assistant head coach for the past five seasons, just got a head-coaching job with the Jets. He's just the sixth black head coach in the history of the league. The last one to break in? Edwards' former boss, Tony Dungy, five years ago. But now things might be changing just as Lewis' star is at its highest. His Ravens defense, which he has run since 1996, is being compared to the greatest units ever.

PITTSBURGH - Torrey Smith wasn't going to let the game-winning touchdown slip through his hands twice. Five plays after a sure scoring strike tipped off his fingers, the Baltimore rookie receiver held onto a 26-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco with 8 seconds remaining to lift the Ravens past the Pittsburgh Steelers, 23-20, last night. Smith capped Baltimore's game-winning, 92-yard drive by beating William Gay down the right sideline as the Ravens (6-2) snapped Pittsburgh's four-game winning streak.

BALTIMORE - The regular NFL officials returned to cheers Thursday night, and Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco delighted the crowd by throwing for one touchdown and running for another to help Baltimore (3-1) beat the winless Cleveland Browns, 23-16. A 63-yard interception return for a touchdown by Cary Williams with 15 seconds remaining in the third quarter sealed the victory.

The Baltimore Ravens had a chance to seize the AFC Central title, a first-round bye and home-field advantage until the Super Bowl. Instead, after Tennessee beat Dallas last night, Baltimore ended up clutching a wild card. The Ravens will make their initial foray into the postseason Sunday afternoon at home against the Denver Broncos. It will be the first NFL playoff game in Baltimore since 1977, when the Colts lost to the Oakland Raiders in overtime. The Ravens (12-4)

BALTIMORE - The Ravens are like Joe Flacco's Fu Manchu mustache. They aren't exactly a thing a beauty, but they get the job done. In an AFC divisional game that surely won't leave a lasting imprint in the annuals of the NFL, Baltimore scraped by the Houston Texans, 20-13, in the same manner as many of its victories over 17 years of existence. The Ravens prevailed behind the strength of their defense - albeit an aging one - and in spite of mediocre quarterback play.

THE EAGLES and Ravens rumbled Sunday as if they had some evil history between them - except they really don't. The Eagles just seemed to have it in their heads that the Ravens, a team with a physical reputation, were out to intimidate them - and they weren't going to have it, especially at home. As safety Kurt Coleman said, "[The Ravens] want to get you out of your game. It's just like Dennis Rodman used to do. " And so, fracas after fracas broke out during the Eagles' 24-23 win at Lincoln Financial Field.

Marvin Lewis, the architect of Baltimore's tenacious and Super Bowl-bound defense, will interview for the Cleveland Browns' head coaching vacancy after the season, according to broadcast reports. Cleveland television stations WKYC and WJW reported yesterday that Lewis - Baltimore's defensive coordinator the last five seasons - will talk to the Browns after the AFC champion Ravens play the New York Giants in the Super Bowl on Jan. 28 in Tampa, Fla. The reports, which cited no sources, said the Ravens had given the Browns permission to interview the 42-year-old Lewis.

SEVEN SOMEWHAT related observations . . . 1) I'm not sure Zach Ertz has the big-play ability to ever be a star in the NFL, but he is a solid tight end with good hands and the kind of mentality and work ethic that usually translates into steady improvement. In fact, when you put it that way, he sounds a lot like the guy who Tuesday restructured his deal in the wake of Ertz's new contract extension. Brent Celek knows firsthand what kind of numbers a tight end can put up in an Andy Reid offense.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 15 of the 2015 season. Watch 'em roll Matt Stafford, QB, Lions at Saints. Stafford is a high-volume passer even against good secondaries, partly because the Lions can't run worth a darn. Expect Calvin Johnson to play a much bigger role in the Monday nighter as well. Denard Robinson, RB, Jaguars vs. Falcons. All indications are that T.J. Yeldon will miss this game with a knee injury, giving Robinson an opportunity to reprise his role as Jacksonville's dual-threat workhorse.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 14 of the 2015 season. Watch 'em roll Tyrod Taylor, QB, Bills at Eagles. Philly's defense and special teams embarrassed the Patriots last week, but it wasn't like they shut down Tom Brady. Taylor, meanwhile, racked up four TDs while basting the Texans secondary. He and Sammy Watkins should have another very productive outing on Sunday. Shaun Draughn, RB, 49ers at Browns. Out of nowhere, Draughn has quietly become fantasy relevant thanks in large part to his heavy involvement in the passing game.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 13 of the 2015 season. Watch 'em roll Andy Dalton, QB, Bengals at Browns. Dalton tossed three TDs with no interceptions when these teams faced off in Week 9, and was nearly as sharp last week against a solid Rams secondary. Meanwhile, Cleveland's pass defense is one of the softest in the league. Time to load the Red Rifle. Javorius Allen, RB, Ravens at Dolphins. Allen got his feet wet as a starter on Monday night and acquitted himself well.

You made it. You soldiered through the gauntlet of bye-week absences, undoubtedly with the additional burden of replacing injured stars along the way. Hopefully your postseason aspirations are still intact, and you can now get back to the business of managing your roster without the random nuisance of starting backups in lieu of perfectly healthy players that just happen to have the week off. And none too soon, with yet another week of mass...

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 10 of the 2015 season. Watch 'em roll Blake Bortles, QB, Jaguars at Ravens. Bortles has been airing it out nicely (even lighting up the solid Jets secondary last week). Now he'll be facing one of the NFL's most generous pass defenses in Baltimore. James Starks, RB, Packers vs. Lions. Though Eddie Lacy will still get some carries (assuming he plays with his sore groin), Starks will be the biggest beneficiary of Detroit's sievelike run defense on Sunday.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 8 of the 2015 season. Watch 'em roll Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, Jets at Saints. Fitzpatrick has been steady at the helm for the Jets, but this could be his best game yet. Oakland has coughed up an NFL-worst 304 net passing yards per game, along with 11 TDs through the air. Both Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker should find their way into the end zone. Chris Johnson, RB, Cardinals at Browns. He is still, somewhat remarkably, the lead dog in Arizona's backfield committee.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 7 of the 2015 season. Watch 'em roll Carson Palmer, QB, Cardinals vs. Ravens. On Monday night, Palmer and his playmaking receivers face a Ravens secondary that has made Colin Kaepernick and Josh McCown look like Hall of Famers over the past two games. Frank Gore, RB, Colts vs. Saints. It will be interesting to see if Ahmad Bradshaw poaches more of the workload this weekend; but for now, this is still Gore's backfield.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 5 of the 2015 season. Watch 'em roll Marcus Mariota, QB, Titans vs. Bills. The ahead-of-schedule rookie has had an extra week to prepare for a defense that has already coughed up 10 passing TDs and nearly 300 passing yards per game. Rashad Jennings, RB, Giants vs. 49ers. Though he's not piling up the rushing yards, he's contributing nicely as a receiver. And Sunday night, Jennings will be facing one of the league's true defensive doormats.

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.]
