Five players who must step their game up

The Baltimore Sun breaks down five players that will need to improve over the next few weeks.

Ravens offense relying on patience

With the offense starting off slow, the Ravens won't panic as it tries to get back on the right track, writes the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson.

Ozzie Newsome has a saying: 'Right player, right price.' Russell Street Report's Kris Jones writes that Smith fits the bill for this, at least for the short-term.

Joe Flacco enjoys opposing fans' jeers

BaltimoreRavens.com's Ryan Minks writes that franchise's quarterback gets pumped up when he hears fans cheering against him.
