Ravens answer to Dolphins’ winning streak: “Never more”

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The Miami Dolphins had been riding high on a six-game winning streak before traveling to Baltimore for Sunday’s game. With all due apologies to Edgar Allan Poe, “Quoth the Ravens, nevermore.” Miami was buried by the Ravens, 38-6 ending their winning streak and making them look as they did earlier in the season. The Dolphins looked like fish out water as their running game was nearly non-existent and quarterback Ryan Tannehill suffered three interceptions. Baltimore, on the other hand, was…

The Jacksonville Jaguars have had difficulty making key plays that would help create a victory. On Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens, they made several key plays down the stretch, but it wasn’t enough as they dropped a 19-17 decision at EverBank Field. Several familiar players to Florida football fans were involved in big plays for both teams. Former Florida State receiver Rashad Greene returned a punt 42 yards to set up the Jags’ first touchdown that made it 10-7. The…

Dolphins steal one from the Ravens

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The Miami Dolphins scored a highly improbable victory on Sunday, prevailing over the hapless Baltimore Ravens, 15-13. On a day when Miami earned only 8 first downs all day, Raven mistakes, especially two critical throws by Raven quarterback Matt Schaub, made the difference. The Dolphin offense was doing nothing on its own. Their first four possessions resulted in four punts. Baltimore looked like they would break on top in the second quarter, but an 80-yard drive resulted in no points…

New York dominated Miami 38-20 on Sunday, dominating the scoreboard and the stat sheet. New York controlled the game from start to finish as they improved to 6-5. The Dolphins slipped to…

Jaguars win thriller in “Charm City”, stop road loss skid at 13

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The Jacksonville Jaguars looked to break their streak of thirteen straight road losses in a trip to a fellow 2-6 team in Baltimore. And they pulled it off. There was reason to hope they would do just that going into the game. The Ravens were without Steve Smith, and the Ravens pass defense had been one of the worst in the league going into Sunday. Of course, the Jaguars’ defense had been exploitable also. The Ravens, in going for it…

Ravens hope to finally get started against Cardinals

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Can the Baltimore Ravens find themselves in the desert? The Ravens, consistently one of the NFL’s playoff teams, have limped to a 1-5 start this season, with every loss coming by six points or less. It has led to a frustrating start for Joe Flacco and company, something they will try to address in Monday night’s football game. Baltimore doesn’t have a consistent outside threat except for aging Steve Smith, so points could be hard to come by. For the…

The growing trend of pro athletes and domestic violence

in Sports/Top Headlines by

There was a time when we read about sports stars almost exclusively on the sports pages. But now, we are just as likely to learn as much about certain athletes’ crime statistics in the metro section as a 300-yard passing game in the sports section. Anyone paying the slightest bit of attention remembers Ray Rice. For those just returning from a 12-month vacation in Uzbekistan, the Baltimore Ravens’ running back punched his fiancée in the face on an elevator on…
