DETROIT Those who like dazzling offenses and high-scoring games probably want to look elsewhere when Baltimore plays Detroit today. The Ravens (1-2) are averaging just 10 points a game, while the Lions (1-2) have averaged 12 points. "It is still going to be an exciting football game - regardless," Baltimore safety Ed Reed insisted. "Fans who love to watch the game are going to come to the game anyway, regardless of what is happening on offense, because they love the game of football.

DENVER - The stretch run is under way in the NFL, the time of year where some teams play for the playoffs and others play for their jobs. When they meet today, the Denver Broncos (9-3) will be the team thinking about the Super Bowl and the Baltimore Ravens (4-8) will be trying to salvage something from a season gone wrong. The Ravens were a trendy Super Bowl pick to start the season. Injuries and poor play at quarterback helped put an end to that. Coach Brian Billick's job security is uncertain and even he has conceded he can't wait for the season to end. Before that, though, the Ravens have their honor to defend.

BALTIMORE (AP) - The Pittsburgh Steelers are AFC North champions, and earning the crown at the expense of the Baltimore Ravens added an extra measure of joy to the accomplishment. Santonio Holmes caught a 4-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger with 43 seconds left, and the Steelers clinched their second straight division title and earned a first-round bye by beating Baltimore 13-9 Sunday. In a duel between the top two defenses in the NFL, Pittsburgh did not permit a touchdown in earning its first win in Baltimore since 2002.

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- They are the two most visible faces of tough-guy football, as personified by James Harrison's snarling and Ray Lewis' meanness. Fittingly, the weather routinely is cold and nasty when they meet, or much like the attitude each carries for the other. Toughness isn't an option when the Ravens and Steelers meet, it's a requirement. Located in adjacent states, the franchises are equally close in mindset and personality, style and identity. A season ago, the Steelers delighted in keeping the hated Ravens from going to the Super Bowl.

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Done with all the drama, the Bengals are grinding their way into the playoff conversation. Cedric Benson topped 100 yards again on Sunday, and the Bengals scored on their first three possessions, setting up a 17-7 victory over Baltimore that kept surprising Cincinnati atop the AFC North and undefeated against division foes. With a win next Sunday in Pittsburgh, the Bengals (6-2) would be in position to make the playoffs for only the second time in the past 19 years.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Baltimore Ravens are rolling down a familiar road. It's a route they once took to a Super Bowl title. They expect it to lead to the same place. In January 2001, the Ravens stuffed their wild-card playoff berth down the throats of four opponents to win their only NFL crown. One of the teams they beat was Tennessee. On Saturday, the Ravens eliminated the Titans, the AFC's top seed, 13-10. That followed a 27-9 victory over Miami in the wild-card round.

BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Ravens charged into the postseason with a performance that typified their astonishing turnaround season. Needing a victory to secure the final AFC wild-card berth, the Ravens built a 17-point halftime lead and never let up in a 27-7 rout of the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Baltimore (11-5) could have backed into the postseason if Buffalo beat New England earlier Sunday, but the Patriots' 13-0 victory meant the Ravens lined up for the opening kickoff knowing they had to win to get in. The playoffs open for Baltimore next Sunday on the road against AFC East champion Miami, but to get there, the Ravens had to adopt a postseason mentality against Jacksonville.

BALTIMORE (AP) - A redemptive performance by the Baltimore Ravens' defense sent an ineffective Eli Manning to the sidelines, where he dejectedly watched the final minutes of the New York Giants' sixth straight loss. Manning accounted for half of the Giants' six turnovers, and Baltimore took full advantage of the miscues in a 37-14 victory Sunday. Kyle Boller threw a career-high four touchdown passes for the Ravens, but his performance was overshadowed by a defense that permitted only 55 yards through the first three quarters.

PITTSBURGH -- Let those other teams wear throwback uniforms. The Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers are throwback teams, descendants of the single-wing days of leather helmets, canvas pants and single-platoon football. Their coaches are named John Harbaugh and Mike Tomlin, but during a different time it's easy to picture these Ravens and Steelers being coached by George Halas or Curly Lambeau. They hit hard, play with a fury, own a yard-wide mean streak and give an inch as grudgingly as if they were giving up a first down.
