John Harbaugh: Ravens have to understand how to beat opponents determined to beat you - ProFootballTalk

Enter your zip code to find NBCSN near youGetty ImagesNo one was entirely sure what to expect when the Ravens took the field to start the 2019 regular season, but it’s fair to say that few were thinking they’d see 59 points and 643 yards of offense in Week One.On Thursday, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh compared that uncertainty about what the team would look like as being an iceberg because “90 percent of what we were going to be capable of was still under water.” Week One woke up a lot of people and the Ravens’ success over the rest of the regular season meant that the Titans weren’t...

NBA playoffs need a draft and here's how it would look

NBA playoffs need a draft and here's how it would look

As the NBA finalizes its plans to restart in Orlando, it should pay close attention to what’s happening in Germany. On May 16, the Bundesliga became the first major soccer league to resume its season following the coronavirus shutdown and, to this point, the restart has gone off largely without a hitch. Unlike the NBA, where the focus has been resuming the season in a one-site campus, the Bundesliga is instead allowing teams to travel within German borders and play out its schedule in the teams’ respective home stadiums. What the two leagues have in common, however, is the absence of fans...

NFL pushes back against perception that fourth-and-15 is a precursor to killing the kickoff

NFL pushes back against perception that fourth-and-15 is a precursor to killing the kickoff

When Commissioner Roger Goodell first floated the concept of a fourth-and-15 alternative in a Time profile from 2012, it was mentioned as a potential replacement to the kickoff. As the NFL closes in on adopting the fourth-and-15 play as an alternative to the onside kick, the NFL wants people (specifically, the owners who will be voting on the proposal) to understand that it’s not a first step toward getting rid of the kickoff.Per a league source, opposition to the fourth-and-15 play apparently comes from the perception that it will lead to the elimination of the kickoff entirely, with the...

If the NFL’s owners vote this week to pass the proposed “fourth-and-15” alternative to the onside kick, teams will be able to use it whether they’re leading, trailing or tied.There was some confusion about the proposed rule because an NFL summary said it would “allow a team who is trailing in the game” to come from behind. But that summary was only designed to capture the impetus behind the proposal, which was to help teams come from behind. The proposal itself never said teams had to be trailing to use it.Because the alternative can be used by leading teams, and because the clock runs on...
