Ravens Pummel Steelers Amidst Rice Distraction

Ravens Pummel Steelers Amidst Rice Distraction

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(BALTIMORE) — If the Baltimore Ravens were distracted by the controversy surrounding former teammate Ray Rice, they didn’t show it Thursday night.

Joe Flacco threw for two touchdowns and Justin Tucker made all four of his field goal attempts as the Ravens pummeled the Pittsburgh Steelers 26-6.

Raven players fielded questions all week about former teammate Ray Rice, who was released by the team and then indefinitely suspended by the NFL for domestic violence. A video was released by TMZ Sports Monday showed Rice knocking out his then-fiancee (now wife) Janay Palmer during a dispute.

The Ravens showed quickly that they were ready to play Thursday when Flacco found tight end Owen Daniels for a two yard touchdown pass on their first drive of the game. The next time the Ravens received the ball, they drove it 65 yards before Justin Tucker hit a 30 yard field goal. Flacco finished the game completing 21-of-29 passes for 166 yards.

Ben Roethlisberger was sacked twice and completed 22-of-37 passes for 217 yards and an interception for Pittsburgh (1-1) in the loss.

Ravens Terminate Ray Rice’s Contract, NFL Suspends Rice Indefinitely

Ravens Terminate Ray Rice’s Contract, NFL Suspends Rice Indefinitely

Rob Carr/Getty Images(BALTIMORE) — The Baltimore Ravens terminated the contract of running back Ray Rice on Monday in wake of TMZ Sports releasing a new video of him punching his then-fiancee in the face in an elevator at a hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell also announced Monday that Rice is suspended indefinitely in the wake of the newly released video.

Rice hit Janay Palmer with a left fist to the head. Palmer fell on the hand rail and landed on the floor before Rice is shown dragging her seemingly unconscious body out into the lobby.

On July 25, Rice was suspended by the NFL for two games and fined more than $500,000. The move was highly criticized and led to Goodell instituting a six-game suspension for any first offenders to a domestic abuse case and a lifetime ban for a second offense.

“We requested from law enforcement any and all information about the incident, including the video from inside the elevator,” the NFL released in a statement on Monday regarding the new video.  “That video was not made available to us and no one in our office has seen it until today.”

Rice had three years and $10 million remaining on his contract.

Brandon Meriweather Suspended Two Games

Brandon Meriweather Suspended Two Games

NFL Shield(ASHBURN, Va.) — Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather was suspended for the first two games of the season by the NFL on Monday.

The punishment comes after another helmet-to-helmet hit from Meriweather on Baltimore’s Torrey Smith over the weekend.

“Meriweather delivered a forceful blow to the head and neck area of a defenseless receiver with no attempt to wrap up or make a conventional tackle of this player,” said NFL executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent in a statement.

Meriweather said after the game on Saturday that he did not believe there was anything wrong with the hit on Smith.

“I’m trying to do what the NFL asked me after going through the offseason, and working on the things I need to work on, and the first chance I get, it seems like I failed,” he said.

Meriweather has been fined five different times by the league over the course of his career, including a $42,000 fine for a hit on Packers running back Eddie Lacy in 2013. The safety was also suspended two games last year, but had it reduced to one game following an appeal.

Ray Rice Breaks His Silence

Ray Rice Breaks His Silence

Rob Carr/Getty Images(OWINGS MILLS, Md.) — Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice addressed the media Thursday for the first time since his two-game suspension was announced by the NFL.

Rice spoke about the suspension and publicly apologized to his wife, Janay, for the first time since his alleged altercation with his then-fiancee in February.

“I made the biggest mistake of my life,” Rice said.

Rice, 27, would not get into what happened in the Atlantic City, New Jersey, elevator, but he also apologized to all women affected by domestic violence and expressed his intentions to become an “ambassador” against it.

“That night I replay over and over in my head. That’s not me. My actions were inexcusable. That’s something I have to live with the rest of my life,” he explained. “The pain I’m talking about living with is waking up every day, and my daughter is two years old now, and I have a little girl, who’s very smart, very intelligent, and one day she’s going to know the power of Google, and me having to explain that to her, what happened that night.”

Rice was joined at the press conference by nearly 30 of his Baltimore Ravens teammates. 

He will miss the team’s Sept. 7 regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals and their Sept. 11 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Cowboys Acquire Linebacker Rolando McClain Via Trade

Cowboys Acquire Linebacker Rolando McClain Via Trade

NFL via Getty Images(IRVING, Texas) — Dallas Cowboys acquired linebacker Rolando McClain in a trade with the Baltimore Ravens on Tuesday. Dallas sent a 2015 sixth-round pick to Baltimore in return for McClain and Baltimore’s 2015 seventh-round pick.

McClain was selected out of Alabama with the eighth overall pick by the Raiders in 2010. He eventually was released by the Raiders after multiple arrests and other off-field issues.
                                                               
McClain signed with the Ravens in 2013 but retired before playing a game. The NFL reinstated McClain in March 2014 after the linebacker communicated that he wanted to play, but McClain decided to retire again soon after. But again the itch to play came back again, and McClain was officially taken off the reserve/ retired list Tuesday.
                                                                                                                                                    
The addition of McClain helps the Cowboys replace linebacker Sean Lee, who tore his ACL and is expected to miss the entire 2014 season.
                                                                                                                           

The 24-year-old McClain has played in 41 NFL games. During that time, he had 175 tackles, 6.5 sacks and 17 passes defended.

Darrin Klimek/Thinkstock(BALTIMORE) — The Baltimore Ravens and former Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley agreed to a contract on Tuesday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Mosley is one of just seven players in Alabama’s history with more than 300 tackles and is third on the school’s all-time tackles list. He was also part of two national championship teams while at Alabama (2011-12).
