BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Ravens hope to get their new-look offense on track against the struggling New York Giants, who have lost three straight and are in last place in the NFC East. Matt Martin Jersey .Baltimore, which has also lost its past two games, fired offensive coordinator Marc Trestman less than 24 hours after falling 16-10 to the Washington Redskins. The Ravens replaced Trestman with quarterbacks coach Marty Mornhinweg and expect to have a more balanced attack against New York.The game is a rematch of Super Bowl XXXV when Baltimore ran away with its first championship, 34-7. This time, both teams are simply trying to keep their playoff hopes alive.We are itching for a W. When you lose, everything is bad, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs said. You can fill in the blanks. The food is bad; everything is bad. We need to get a W, and we need one now. They are coming off two (three) losses, too. There is only going to be one winner come Sunday, and we want it to be us.Giants quarterback Eli Manning has struggled in three meetings with the Ravens, throwing for 330 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions. He will face an aggressive Ravens pass rush that will try to force him out of the pocket.They have played great defense all year, Manning said of the Ravens. Not many teams are scoring a lot of points on them. Every game they have played has been a tight game and a close game. They do a great job on third down getting teams off the field.Theyre talented up front, and they do a good job getting pressure and stopping the run. We have to be balanced and find ways to move the chains, get first downs and stay in good down and distance.New York has the leagues 15th-ranked offense and Manning will look to get wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. involved early in his matchup with Baltimore cornerback Jimmy Smith.Hes one of the most gifted players in the league, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. We have to know where No. 13 is at all the time.Meanwhile, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco and the rest of the offense are trying to emerge from an early season slump. Baltimore expected to have a quick-strike attack capable of putting points on the board in a variety of ways. So far, Baltimore has managed the leagues No. 18 overall offense and is averaging 18.8 points per game.Flacco has thrown more passes (216) than any other quarterback in the NFL. The Ravens have only run the ball 121 times for 495 yards with three touchdowns, which has put more pressure on Flacco.This lack of balance was one of main reasons for the change at offensive coordinator.Mornhinweg is expected to give running backs Terrance West, Kenneth Dixon and Buck Allen more carries in this game. The Ravens, however, will also take some shots downfield. New York is ranked last in the NFL with just four sacks, so Flacco should have time to throw.We will probably be a little more confident going forward and be shoring things up -- doing what we do best, Flacco said after Wednesdays practice in pads. (We will) try to stretch the field a little bit more and things like that.New York coach Ben McAdoo said the pressure is mounting to turn things around, starting this week against Baltimore.The Giants are also hoping for their offense to make strides this week. Running back Rashad Jennings (thumb) is getting closer to rejoining the lineup.We have a sense of urgency, McAdoo said. Id like to think we have one each and every week. Coming off of this little down slide were having ... were in a valley right now, and we need to climb out. This will be a great test for us.The Ravens lead the series 3-1. The Giants beat visiting Baltimore 30-10 on Nov. 16, 2008, for their sole victory in the series. Nikolay Kulemin Jersey .ca look back at each of the Top 10 stories of 2013. Today, we look back at Boston Strong - a citys recovery from tragedy. Calvin De Haan Jersey . Halladay signed a one-day contract with the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday that allowed the veteran right-hander to retire as a member of team with which he broke into the majors and spent the bulk of his distinguished 16-year career. http:///...mathew-barzal-jersey . Carey Price didnt, but he still came out on top against one of his rivals for the No. 1 job at the Sochi Games. The Anahim Lake, B.C., native was stellar in making 39 saves in his home province and Lars Eller got credit for a bizarre short-handed winner as the Canadiens defeated the Canucks 4-1. ASHBURN, Va. -- Running off the field after throwing for 375 yards and three touchdowns in the Washington Redskins victory over the Green Bay Packers, quarterback Kirk Cousins stopped and yelled right into the ear of general manager Scot McCloughan.How you like me now? Cousins said, rubbing McCloughans head. How you like me now?Its a loaded question.In leading the Redskins to six games in eight games, Cousins has 2,398 yards and 16 touchdowns with just four interceptions. He has 3,091 yards this season while playing on the franchise tag and wants a lucrative, long-term contract whether its from the Redskins or someone else.Hes made progression in every area of his game, and hes continuing to do so, coach Jay Gruden said ahead of the Redskins Thanksgiving Game against the NFC East-leading Dallas Cowboys. You can see it. Its `Eye in the sky dont lie, so to speak. ... The more comfortable he gets, and the people around him, and the system, the better hes going to be.We like where he is, we like where hes going, (and) hes going to continue to work, which is also why we like him.How much do the Redskins like him is the question. After not being able to negotiate a long-term deal, theyre paying him $19.95 million this season, and a second consecutive year on the franchise tag would cost $23.94 million.Thats in the range of what Baltimores Joe Flacco, Arizonas Carson Palmer and Atlantas Matt Ryan will cost against the salary cap in 2017, and Cousins doesnt yet have the resume of those established starters. Cousins is getting there, and he knows each game is a test.Im just always trying to prove myself and Im always being evaluated, Cousins said after outdueling Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. Ill always be trying to prove myself as long as Im playing this game.Cousins downplayed the grander meaning of asking his GM, How you like me now? But the 28-year-old has a history of being fired up in big moments, like when he screamed, You like that? after leading a comeback from down 24 against Tampa Bay last season.When Cousins gets asked about his contract situation, he calmly recalls a football lifetime of dealing with uncertainty.In high school, I played my senior year with no scholarship offers and had to prove myself to earn a scholarship, Cousins said Tuesday. Bob Nystrom Jersey. I went to Michigan State and played my senior year not knowing what was going to happen with the NFL. It wasnt like I was projected to be a high pick and had to prove myself there. I came here as a backup on a rookie contract as a fourth-round pick, didnt know what was going to happen, had to play that contract out and just prove myself. Here we are again.Cousins waited patiently to earn the Redskins starting job when he was drafted the same year as Robert Griffin III, but now isnt the time for patience. Urgency has suited Cousins well, and he has helped Washington rebound from an 0-2 start to get to 6-3-1 going into the showdown with Dallas.Along the way, Cousins has gotten better at extending plays, making better decisions with the ball and connecting on deep throws. He has a 104.9 QB rating in the past eight games and earning praise from Gruden for his growth.There are so many things that a quarterback has to do pre-snap that hes handling much better than he did when I first got here, Gruden said. Then his confidence to throw the ball and distribute the ball to the right people and not forcing the issue. His interceptions have gone down tremendously. Hes protecting the football in the pocket. Theres so many things that hes doing better that you just cant point to one.Cousins acknowledges that even though hell be 29 by the time next season starts hes still learning. But his veteran teammates see plenty of evidence that Cousins can be a franchise quarterback.Kirk, hes a winner, hes a leader, hes everything you want in a quarterback, said tight end Vernon Davis, who played last season with Peyton Manning. Each and every week hes getting better and better.Game notes Gruden said long snapper Nick Sundberg didnt participate in a walkthrough Tuesday. Sundberg missed the Packers game with a back injury and was replaced by Rick Lovato. ...
