NEW ORLEANS - After each of his two touchdowns, Justin Forsett kneeled in the end zone, spread his arms wide and tilted his head back as if gazing toward the heavens beyond the Superdome roof. As he did so, the Ravens running back couldnt help but think of how much his career has changed in a year.He played in nine games and rushed for 31 yards all of last season with the languishing Jacksonville Jaguars, who then let him go in the off-season.On Monday night, before a national television audience, his very first carry went for 38 yards and he finished with a career-high 182 yards rushing to lead playoff-contending Baltimore to a 34-27 victory over the New Orleans Saints.Its crazy, man. You think about where I was this time last year, mostly doing a lot of scout team work and coming in (to play) every once in a while, Forsett said. To just get the opportunity when I thought I would never get it again, its a blessing.While Forsett is grateful to the Ravens for the chance they gave him, Baltimore (7-4) might say the feeling is mutual. No one really knew how the Ravens running game would fare after Ray Rice was suspended and later released because of an assault on his wife that was captured by hotel video cameras.With five games still to go, Forsett has rushed for 903 yards and seven TDs while averaging 5.8 yards per carry.The work hes putting in, the results hes getting and what hes doing for this team was huge, said Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, who passed for 243 yards and a touchdown against New Orleans. Hes not letting the guy tackle him in the hole with his arms or anything like that. Hes breaking those little things.The Saints, meanwhile, appear to be breaking down. They lost their third straight despite Drew Brees 420 yards and three touchdowns passing. When Brees did make a mistake, it was costly. His lone interception was returned 44 yards for a touchdown by Will Hill in the third quarter, giving the Ravens a lead they never relinquished.This is a game of inches and split seconds and unfortunately a lot of those have not gone our way this year, said Brees, who was also sacked four times. Weve got to accept whats happened but remain undeterred in regards to our direction. We just need a win. Winning cures a lot of things.Indeed, a win could make the Saints (4-7) feel a lot better about their playoff chances. Despite their recent slide, theyre still tied for first place with Atlanta in the anemic NFC South.Here are some things to know about the Ravens triumphant return to the stadium where they won the 2013 Super Bowl:FORSETT A FORCE: Forsett is punishing defences that have struggled against the run. Hes now broken the 100-yard mark and scored twice in two straight games. He rushed for 112 yards in his previous outing against Tennessee.DOME DOLDRUMS: Until recently, the Saints have been tough to beat in the Superdome, particularly in night games. Either their dome advantage has vanished or theyre just not very good right now. Theyve not only lost three straight in the dome, but saw their 14-game winning streak in night home games snapped. The last time they lost three straight in the Superdome in a single season was in 2001.DIVISIONAL DIVIDE: Those arguing that the NFC South is weak can point to the divisions record against the AFC North. Baltimores victory over New Orleans improved the AFC Norths record against NFC South teams this season to 10-1-1.SURGING SMITH: Veteran receiver Steve Smith, who tormented the Saints for much of his 13 seasons in Carolina, left the NFC South for Baltimore but wound up playing once more in the Superdome. He caught four passes for 89 yards, including a 15-yard touchdown while crashing down backward. Smith now has 11 TD catches against New Orleans, more than he has against any other team.PASS HAPPY: A week ago, the Saints lost second-leading receiver Brandin Cooks to a season-ending broken thumb. That didnt stop Brees from having one of his most productive performances this season. He found Kenny Stills for 98 yards and Marques Colston for 82 yards and a touchdown. Tight end Jimmy Graham had two short TD catches, and Joseph Morgan had a 67-yard reception the only time Brees threw to him.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Andrew Billings Bengals Jersey .C. -- Kevin Harvick won his first career pole at Darlington Raceway on Friday as he looks to chase his first Southern 500.

But the future is bright for the young Tiger-Cats.A team that opened the regular season 1-6 before finishing it on an 8-3 run came agonizingly close to a comeback win over the Calgary Stampeders in the CFL championship game.I just told them how proud I was of turning the season around, head coach Kent Austin said of his post-game speech. Weve got a good young football team.Sometimes things dont work out. Welcome to the game of life. Its not always going to go our way. Thats the way it is sometimes. But it doesnt take away what they accomplished this year. It doesnt take away how hard these guys played, how close they were as a football team and what a great future we have in front of us.Hamiltons Grey Cup roster featured 39 first- and second-year players (compared to 20 for Calgary).Austin, who doubles as coach and GM, will look to refine his roster after the heartbreaking 20-16 loss to the Stampeders at B.C. Place Stadium. There were changes after last years 45-23 Grey Cup defeat at the hands of the Saskatchewan Roughriders, but more are needed.Weve been in two Grey Cups, we havent won them. We need to get better, he said.Kick returner Brandon Banks, whose potential 90-yard winning punt return for a TD with 35 seconds left was negated by a penalty, is a free agent. A game-changer, the five-foot-seven 149-pounder amazingly ran punts back for four touchdowns — two of which were called back due to penalties — in two playoff games. Austin will likely want to strengthen a secondary that was exposed at times in the playoffs and ranked eighth in thhe league in passing yards allowed per game (260) in the regular season.dddddddddddd And the Hamilton offensive line ranked eighth in the league in sacks allowed.The Tiger-Cats ranked ninth in the league in taking advantage of forays into the red zone. Over the final eight games of the regular season, Hamilton converted just eight of its last 22 red zone chances into touchdowns. For the season, its red zone TD percentage was 40 per cent, compared to No. 1 Calgary at 77 per cent.Hamilton had to settle for three field goals in the second half during its comeback bid against the Stamps.We didnt score enough touchdowns and youve got to score touchdowns in this league, quarterback Zach Collaros said of Sundays effort.Injuries did not help the Hamilton cause during the season.The Ticats were 1-4 without Collaros, a third-year pro who helped the Ticats claw their way back in the second half Sunday. He used his mobility to escape a fierce Stampeder rush, digging deep into his bag of tricks to keep the play alive.Thats Zach, said Austin. Hes an unbelievable competitor. Hes got that in spades.His best football is still way in front of him. Hes going to get a lot better as he plays and grows as a quarterback.On the plus side, the Hamilton defence led the league in fewest rushing yards allowed per game (77). And thanks to Banks, the Ticats were No. 1 in punt return average.Austin will also look to retain the band of brothers feel to his locker-room. This is a team that genuinely cares about each other.And Hamilton can look forward to a full season in its new home at Tim Hortons Field, where it went 6-0 during the regular season and 1-0 in the playoffs.Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter Wholesale Hoodies NFL Shirts Outlet Jerseys NFL Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
