Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs was acquitted in Phoenix of an assault charge from a playground altercation. "I wasn't shocked when I heard the verdict," Suggs said yesterday. "You all have watched me grow up here. I've never once been in trouble. " Suggs, who left Arizona State early, was the No. 10 pick in the 2003 draft. He said accuser Jeryme Cook was trying to lay the groundwork to sue for damages. "That used to be my best friend, so why - unless he did something to me - would I try to harm him?"

Carson Palmer, the presumed first overall pick in the 2003 NFL draft, is a marked man. And the usual suspects are chasing the Southern California quarterback. Yep, defensive linemen, such as Penn State tackle Jimmy Kennedy and Arizona State end Terrell Suggs, are after the Heisman Trophy winner, but they aren't trying to sack him. They want to replace him at the top when the Cincinnati Bengals pick on April 26. "That's what I'm trying to do, sneak up on Carson," said Suggs, "so tell him to watch [out]

BALTIMORE - An uncharacteristic performance by the Baltimore defense was offset by an uncommonly effective outing by Joe Flacco and the Ravens' oft-criticized offense. Flacco threw for 270 yards and two touchdowns, rookie Torrey Smith had six catches for 165 yards, and Baltimore moved into first place in the AFC North with a nerve-racking 31-24 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Playing without middle linebacker Ray Lewis for the first time in 58 games, the Ravens (7-3)

The Eagles intend to enact a provision in the collective bargaining agreement and deduct $3.25 million from Jason Peters' 2012 base salary because the tackle ruptured his Achilles tendon in March at an off-site location, according to an ESPN report. The clause in the CBA states that a player who is placed on a non-football injury or illness list "is not entitled to any compensation under his contract while on such a list. " The Eagles said Peters' injury occurred while he was participating in a football-related workout in Texas, but it is still considered a "non-football injury" - because it happened off team premises.

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.]

Just like their previous game, the Ravens put a Steelers quarterback out with an injury. They accomplished little else. Still-unbeaten Ben Roethlisberger threw two touchdown passes in a run-heavy offense before being pulled from a 20-7 Steelers win yesterday over visiting Baltimore with a rib injury caused by a blindside hit on a scoring pass. Pittsburgh (14-1) wrapped up homefield throughout the AFC playoffs and a first-round bye. But a team already playing without six injured regulars sustained two more injuries, as Roethlisberger (14-for-19, 211 yards)

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Tom Brady and the New England Patriots made it to the AFC championship game with a high-powered offense that piled up points and yards. Ray Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens got there with a hard-hitting defense that made it a major challenge for opponents to move the ball. On Sunday, one of those teams will advance to the Super Bowl because, most likely, of what they do best. "We've got our hands full this week," Lewis said. "You watched what they did last week against Denver, just the way they came out and ran their offense, how efficient [Brady]

JASON PETERS said quarterback Sam Bradford thanked him yesterday for Peters' strong comments condemning the Terrell Suggs hit on Bradford's twice-repaired left knee, in Saturday's Eagles preseason victory over the Ravens. The NFL decided the hit was legal and that Suggs shouldn't have been penalized. The Eagles have noted that previously, the standard seemed to be that a quarterback not carrying out a fake could not be hit. Now the standard seems to be that he is fair game for a period of time after handing off, trying to run a fake or not. Regardless, Peters and the Eagles aren't going to tolerate blatant attempts to injure their QB, and they don't seem to think they'll encounter a lot of them.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Next up to try and stop the seemingly unstoppable Tom Brady and the New England Patriots' offense: the Baltimore Ravens. Good luck. How do you cover powerful Rob Gronkowski and versatile Aaron Hernandez and still have a defender left to deal with Wes Welker, the NFL's leading receiver? Can you generate enough of a pass rush to foil Brady's quick release? If you don't, the master of analyzing defenses and firing precise passes can stand comfortably in the pocket, calmly searching for his best option and the quickest route to the end zone.

First off, it's the "zone-read" and not the "read-option. " Chip Kelly made that point early in his tenure with the Eagles. "Zone-read is just one guy," Kelly said in November 2013. "You read the defensive end or whomever and keep it. If you're running read-option, you're pulling off of him and then you have a pitch-back. " The Eagles use the zone-read, although not nearly as much, Kelly has insisted, as many believe. It is a play that involves the quarterback in the shotgun, holding the ball in the basket of a running back with two hands and either handing off or keeping based on his read of an unblocked defender.

CHIP KELLY has a simple solution for how the Eagles can better assure that twice-injured quarterback Sam Bradford does not get hurt again. "We could put him in a glass case," Kelly said at yesterday's media conference where the conversation centered on the controversial hit Bradford took from Baltimore Ravens defensive end Terrell Suggs in Saturday's preseason game. Well, actually, encasing Bradford in glass is no guarantee because he could fall into the glass, shatter it and end up slicing a tendon in his throwing arm thus shelving him for a third consecutive season.

The hit that Sam Bradford took at his knees from Baltimore's Terrell Suggs after a handoff in Saturday's preseason game was legal even though a penalty flag was thrown. The NFL's head of officiating, Dean Blandino, told the NFL Network that the play was "not a foul" if it's a read-option and the quarterback is not in a passing posture or out of the play. But Eagles coach Chip Kelly thought that it was, in fact, a foul, and that Bradford was not an option to run on the play. Kelly has not spoken to Blandino or anyone in the league about the issue.

NEVER MIND the confusion over whether the Eagles were or were not running a read-option play when the Ravens' Terrell Suggs went for Sam Bradford's twice-repaired left knee Saturday night. Chip Kelly said they weren't, some of his players said they were, but NFL officiating director Dean Blandino eventually clarified yesterday that from the league's perspective, it doesn't matter; a quarterback doesn't get protection on a handoff until he clearly no longer has the ball or has reestablished himself as a passer, whether it's an option play or not. Yes, it would have been hard for any sane person to be confused over whether Bradford had handed off the ball on the play in question, before Suggs launched himself at the QB's knees, but even that is not really the pressing issue going forward.

Forget about Terrell Suggs' questionable hit on Sam Bradford for a moment and consider the other shot the Eagles quarterback took against the Ravens, one exemplary of the kind of contact that he will be more susceptible to this season. It came in the pocket and after Bradford held the ball too long in Saturday's preseason win. He got the pass off to Nelson Agholor, but he paused as he heaved it and the pass sailed high and off the receiver's hands. The incompletion was inconsequential compared to the chest blow he took from 335-pound nose tackle Brandon Williams.

Jerome Boger, despite the lack of support from the NFL's vice president of officiating, was not wrong. The referee in the Eagles' preseason game Saturday against Baltimore watched a play unfold in front of him and decided it did not pass the smell test, so he reached for his yellow flag and assessed a 15-yard penalty on Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs. Boger, who is in his 12th season as an NFL official and his 10th as a referee, initially announced that Suggs was guilty of roughing the passer.

Three years ago, defensive coordinators around the NFL found themselves playing a very different game as they tried to cope with an explosion of read-option exploits from mobile quarterbacks like Cam Newton, Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III. Not all of what they did was true read-option - in which a quarterback run is a scripted possibility on nearly every play and not just a rip cord to pull - but there was enough of it...

THE MOST significant moment of the Eagles' season so far occurred late Saturday night, when Sam Bradford strode through the short corridor from the locker room and bounded into the Lincoln Financial Field interview room, following a 40-17 preseason victory over Baltimore. Bradford had taken two big hits in his 12-play, 14-snap debut as the team's starting quarterback, including one that drew a 15-yard, low-blow roughing penalty on the Ravens' Terrell Suggs. Yet Bradford emerged unscathed, and maybe more important, unflustered.
