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.

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.

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.

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.
