Former NFL kicker Matt Stover will retire after a stellar career in which he scored more than 2,000 points. The Ravens say Stover will make the announcement this afternoon at Baltimore’s training complex. Stover, 43, ranks fourth in NFL history with 2,004 points. He made 471 field goals, connecting on 83.7 percent of his attempts — the seventh-best success rate in league history. Drafted by the New York Giants in the 12th round of the 1990 draft, Stover spent his first season on injured reserve before signing as a free agent in 1991 with the Cleveland Browns.

By DAVID GINSBURG The Associated Press BALTIMORE - For the Jacksonville Jaguars, it was something new - a record fifth win, the first overtime victory in franchise history and their initial road win of the year. For the Baltimore Ravens, it was the same old story. The Jaguars fought back from a 15-point deficit in the final 13 minutes of regulation before Mike Hollis kicked a 34-yard field goal with 5:57 left in overtime Sunday for a 28-25 victory. The first overtime victory in Jacksonville's two-year existence gave the Jaguars five wins in a season for the first time.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -- Matt Stover was kicking field goals in the NFL before the Baltimore Ravens became the Baltimore Ravens. Stover came to Baltimore with the Cleveland Browns in 1996. He has led the Ravens in scoring in every season, amassing 1,464 points, and has 52 points in 10 playoff games. He ranks third in NFL history in accuracy, connecting on 83.7 percent of his 552 field goal tries, including 27 of 33 (81.8 percent) this season. So, if Sunday's wild-card game against the Miami Dolphins comes down to a last-minute field goal try, the Ravens feel good about putting their trust in a 19-year veteran who's already got 13 game-winning kicks on his career ledger.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- The Baltimore Ravens opened the playoffs just as they did the last time they won in the postseason: With a road victory against the Miami Dolphins. For an encore, the Ravens will seek to replicate another past playoff feat that ranks as one of their most memorable postseason performances. Baltimore's 27-9 win over the Dolphins on Sunday set up a second-round matchup on the road against the top-seeded Tennessee Titans this Saturday. Placed in an identical scenario during the 2000 playoffs, the Ravens pulled off a 24-10 upset to earn a berth in the AFC championship.

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.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Reaching the AFC championship game in their first year under coach John Harbaugh was quite an accomplishment for the Baltimore Ravens, who successfully rebounded from a 5-11 season to get within a victory of the Super Bowl. No one expected much from the Ravens, who had a rookie quarterback, an inexperienced head coach and put 19 players on injured reserve -- second-most in the NFL. Yet they won 13 games, defeated top-seeded Tennessee in the playoffs and gave the Pittsburgh Steelers a bit of a scare before dropping a 23-14 decision Sunday.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Joe Flacco has been making headlines this postseason for what he hasn't done. In two games, the Baltimore Ravens quarterback has completed only 44 percent of his passes, thrown for one touchdown and is averaging 148 yards through the air. Nothing special there. Yet Flacco has not fumbled or been intercepted, and that's the biggest reason why he is the first rookie quarterback in NFL history to win two playoff games. He's no Joe Montana, but the man known in Baltimore as "Joe Cool" has outplayed quarterbacks with longer resumes and far more experience.
