Must Read

Third time’s the charm? Ravens-Steelers bumped to Wednesday afternoon

Gus Edwards could have more company in the backfield with J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram now eligible to be activated to play against Pittsburgh.

There is no masking what the NFL thinks is important during a plague

The games must be played. The television and media partners demand it. Professor Marty Conway brings class to session with facts about the demands on Roger Goodell to get the games in – no matter what.

It’ll be RG3 and anonymous cast of guys in purple against undefeated Steelers in Pittsburgh

They haven't practiced in 10 days. Many of the players in Ravens uniforms on Tuesday night will be new to you. Better grab a scorecard along with Luke Jones and Nestor if you are navigating COVID NFL rosters.

His mind is consumed with useless sports knowledge, pro wrestler promos, and movie quotes, but he struggles to remember where he put his phone. Luke's favorite sports memories include being one of the thousands of kids who waited to get Cal Ripken's autograph after Orioles games in the summer of 1995, attending the Super Bowl XXXV victory parade with his father in the pouring rain, and watching the Terps advance to the Final Four at the Carrier Dome in 2002.

Fresh off their bye week, the Terps travel to Clemson on Saturday afternoon with their sights set on improving to 5-1.

The Tigers (2-3, 0-2 ACC) have lost three straight and are desperate to extract revenge against a Maryland team that stunned them, 24-21, in College Park last season, the Terps’ only conference win of 2009. Clemson has lost its first two conference games against Miami and North Carolina.

Coach Ralph Friedgen has not named a starting quarterback for today’s matchup in Death Valley, a good indication that both Danny O’Brien and Jamarr Robinson will see time under center. Robinson’s injured shoulder is again healthy after the bye, but O’Brien has played well in his absence.

We will see if Maryland can improve to 2-0 in the ACC and make a convincing argument that their current 4-1 record is more an indicator of improvement than a product of a weak non-conference schedule.

We’ll have the Turtle Power chat open at 12 p.m. to talk about the happenings in Clemson (the game airing on WJZ-TV 13 in Baltimore) as well as anything else on your mind. See you in the Turtle Power chat!

Where is Roger Goodell in discussing “best interest of game” for NFL fans and players during plague?

If you witnessed the Denver Broncos play a game without a quarterback then you know on Tuesday night the Ravens will play without 20 real NFL players in Pittsburgh. That doesn't make it any less disgraceful for the integrity of the league.
