THE BROTHER of Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith was killed in a motorcycle accident. Tevin Chris Jones, 19, died late Saturday night in Westmoreland County in northeast Virginia. He was riding his motorcycle on Route 672 when he ran off the right side of the roadway and struck a utility pole, according to Virginia State Police. Jones was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. He was wearing a helmet, and alcohol was not a factor. The accident is under investigation.

JOE FLACCO threw for one touchdown and ran for another and Cary Williams returned an inteception 63 yards for a score as the Baltimore Ravens defeated the visiting Cleveland Browns, 23-16. It was the first game of the season played without replacement referees. Flacco was sacked four times but still finished 28-for-46 for 356 yards and an interception. Brandon Weeden was 25-for-52 for 320 yards as the Browns fell to 0-4. The Ravens opened the scoring in the second quarter on an 18-yard touchdown pass from Flacco to Torrey Smith.

YOU WOULD think a guy like Dan Marino, who was sacked 270 times in his NFL career, would know a little something about protection. And yet, here comes a New York Post exclusive that cites sources as saying the former Dolphins quarterback - who is married with six children - had a child with a co-worker at CBS Sports and then paid her millions to keep quiet about it. According to the report, Marino and Donna Savattere, then a production assistant...

This time of year, fantasy enthusiasts tend to obsess over their first-round draft picks. Do you go with Arian Foster, LeSean McCoy, or Ray Rice with the top overall pick? How early should you jump on Aaron Rodgers and Calvin Johnson? Is it still funny to claim you're taking a kicker with your first pick? (Answer: For the love of all things sacred, no . Please, stop!) While these decisions are important, you'd be better served expending more mental energy on the middle and later rounds, where championship fantasy rosters are built.

For all of Matt Ryan's excellence - a resume that includes a 33-5 home record and 127 career touchdowns - the Atlanta Falcons quarterback never has gotten it done when it matters the most. Ryan is 0-3 in the playoffs, including a 24-2 road embarrassment against the Giants in last year's wild-card round. In his three losses, Ryan has thrown three touchdown passes and four interceptions, and hasn't gone over 200 passing yards once. He has yet another chance to shake the "little-game player" reputation Sunday, when his top-seeded Falcons host the Seahawks.

On a day when a number of games were marred by suspect calls, the players' union sent a letter to team owners calling for an end to the season-long lockout of referees. The letter, posted Sunday on the union's website, said that a lack of a safe working environment exists because of the replacement officials. "Your decision to lock out officials with more than 1,500 years of collective NFL experience has led to a deterioration of order, safety and integrity," the NFL Players Association wrote.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 7. Watch 'em roll Cam Newton, QB, Panthers vs. Rams. I called him the most frustrating QB in Fantasyland earlier this week, and he'll probably prove me right again Sunday. But after his monster outing against the Vikings, he should - mind you, should - take advantage of another tasty matchup with the Rams' subpar pass defense. Brandon Jacobs, RB, Giants vs. Vikings. You're not chasing last week's stats when Jacobs' next matchup is against the defense that surrenders the most fantasy points to opposing rushers.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. - For the Baltimore Ravens, the term balanced attack usually means an equal distribution of tackles among everyone on the defense not named Ray Lewis. The Ravens' strength has long been its ability to stop the opposition from scoring. The offense, for the most part, is usually responsible for protecting the ball and cashing in turnovers. This asymmetrical arrangement will almost certainly have to change Sunday against the high-powered New England Patriots in the AFC championship game.

BALTIMORE - On their fourth try, the Baltimore Ravens finally got the victory they needed to win the AFC North: They whipped the reeling New York Giants, 33-14, Sunday to capture their second straight division crown. The defeat eliminated the defending Super Bowl champion Giants (8-7) from contention in the NFC East and severely damaged their chances for a playoff berth. New York has lost five of seven and was coming off a 34-0 defeat at Atlanta. In this one, quarterback Eli Manning went 14 for 28 for 150 yards and was sacked three times.

BALTIMORE - In their first game, the Baltimore Ravens did nothing to quiet the Super Bowl talk that surrounded the team throughout the preseason. With Joe Flacco leading a new big-play, up-tempo offense that often included no huddle, Baltimore opened with 44-13 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday night at M&T Bank Stadium. Next up for the Ravens is Sunday's 1 p.m. matchup against the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. It's safe to say that if the Eagles have the same mistake-filled performance in their second game, the result won't match the first.

FOR A SEASON at least, this is the best rookie class of wide receivers the NFL has seen. Ever. Long-term? Well, that's obviously another matter. But the Class of 2014 has six wideouts with at least 50 receptions, something that's never happened. It's going to be seven when Odell Beckham, currently sitting on 48, catches two more. And it would have been eight if Allen Robinson (also with 48) hadn't broken his foot in Week 10. Earning gold stars as the brightest youngsters are Kelvin Benjamin and Jarvis Landry with 57 catches each.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 3 of the 2014 season. Watch 'em roll Philip Rivers, QB, Chargers at Bills. Buffalo may be 2-0, but it has been soft in the passing game. Meanwhile, Rivers and Antonio Gates are BFFs again, and it's only a matter of time before Keenan Allen explodes. With Ryan Mathews sidelined, Rivers will need to be at his best, and he is up to the task. Bernard Pierce, RB, Ravens at Browns. Now that Pierce is seemingly locked into the lead-back role in Baltimore (with Justin Forsett taking a backseat in Week 2)

BALTIMORE - The defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants picked a terrible time to play their worst football of the season, and now they're on the brink of missing the playoffs. A 33-14 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday left New York in a desperate position heading into the final week of the season. "The next game, if it's our last, whatever happens, we just want to leave with pride," running back Ahmad Bradshaw said. New York will need a win over the Eagles next Sunday and help from other teams to squeeze into the postseason.
