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.

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.

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.]

BACK IN high school, Sam Bradford was a smooth two-guard on an AAU team that featured Blake Griffin, so he is well-aware of the proper way to operate a fastbreak offense against an overmatched "D. " "Lob city," the quarterback said Saturday night when asked to put into words his personal philosophy on sharing a playing surface with a human being capable of dunking over a midsize sedan. Two hours earlier, Bradford led the Eagles on their own version of the fastbreak: a frenetic, 12-play charge down the field against a Ravens defense that might have backed up all the way to Baltimore if not for a touchdown that relieved them of their duty to keep pretending to try. Over the course of just 3 minutes and 55 second of game clock, the Eagles used four different personnel packages, employing the same one on consecutive plays just four times.

Sam Bradford wanted to take a hit Saturday night. The Eagles quarterback never could have imagined the first one he withstood. On the sixth snap of Bradford's only drive in the Eagles' 40-17 win over the Baltimore Ravens, Bradford handed the ball to Darren Sproles. After the handoff, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs lunged into the left knee of an unsuspecting Bradford. It was the same knee that required two surgeries and is the biggest variable in the Eagles season. "You would have to ask him, but I think that's what he was trying to do," Bradford said.

THE COMPETITION for the third outside linebacker position got a little more interesting yesterday, as defensive coordinator Bill Davis told reporters that Marcus Smith, who left Thursday's practice with a hamstring injury, will be out for tonight's preseason game with the Baltimore Ravens. Smith, the Eagles first-round draft pick in 2014, wore a black sleeve on his right leg during yesterday's practice, which he did not participate in. He told reporters he will be out for "two to three weeks.

On Aug. 23, 2014, Sam Bradford was sequestered in the visitors locker room during a Rams-Browns game and thinking about his immediate future. The Rams quarterback had just recovered from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee only to suffer the same injury in the third game of the preseason, sabotaging all the rehabilitation work he had done to reach that point. Never mind playing in an Eagles jersey - the notion of returning to the field again seemed difficult to grasp. "I thought this day would never come," Bradford said earlier this summer.

JOINT PRACTICES are "organized chaos," Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said after the first of the three days of welcoming the Baltimore Ravens to NovaCare, in advance of Saturday's preseason game. "Both teams are teetering on being under control, but out of control at the same time. It's real thin ice, but I think cooler heads prevail. We're all professionals. We're out here trying to compete. I think we all have that understanding and mutual respect for each other, and we're out here just trying to get work done.

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.

Eric Rowe grew up watching Steve Smith destroy some of the best NFL cornerbacks with his route running and trash talking. Then he followed the wide receiver to the University of Utah - some 14 years later - and met Smith when he visited his alma mater and spoke with the players a few years ago. But that Smith was much different than the one who lined up opposite Rowe on Wednesday. The one that the Eagles rookie faced during joint practices with the Ravens was the mouthy, shifty receiver he watched on television as a youngster.

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.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 15 of the 2014 season. Watch 'em roll Eli Manning, QB, Giants vs. Redskins. Washington has coughed up 28 passing touchdowns vs. just five interceptions all season. Manning should have little trouble taking advantage, as he did in Week 4, especially given the firepower (read: Odell Beckham Jr.) at his disposal. Joique Bell, RB, Lions vs. Vikings. Bell has racked up a pair of touchdowns in each of his last two games. Even with Reggie Bush back, he remains the starter and is getting the lion's share of the carries.
