BALTIMORE (AP) — It’s been six years since the Ravens hosted a playoff game Tytus Howard Jersey , so forgive Pro Bowl guard Marshal Yanda for forgetting protocol regarding the distribution of tickets.“Somebody was asking me if we got tickets during the playoff games, and I couldn’t really remember,” he said this week. “I was like, ‘Uh, it’s been a little while.'”The last time Baltimore was at home in the postseason was in 2012, when linebacker Ray Lewis and quarterback Joe Flacco engineered a 24-8 victory over Indianapolis to launch a surprising Super Bowl run.Article continues below ...Lewis is now in the Hall of Fame, and Flacco will be on the bench when rookie Lamar Jackson and the Ravens (10-6) face the Los Angeles Chargers (12-4) in a wild-card game Sunday.It’s a rematch of a pivotal contest two weeks ago, when Baltimore took control of the AFC North with a 22-10 victory that dropped the Chargers to the No. 6 seed. The Ravens’ top-ranked defense limited Los Angeles quarterback Philip Rivers to 181 yards passing with two interceptions.“You know they’re going to come back with changes, with wrinkles, and they’re going to play that much harder, because they know what happened the first game,” said Ravens safety Eric Weddle, who played nine years with the Chargers before signing as a free agent with the Ravens in 2016.The game plan is important, but minimizing errors is what really counts.“I don’t think it’s going to be a big secret as to what everyone is doing,” Los Angeles coach Anthony Lynn said. “It’s just whoever executes the best is going to win this game.”If experience means anything at quarterback, the Chargers have the edge. The 37-year-old Rivers has been flinging the football in the NFL since 2004 and has started nine playoff games.Jackson Rock Ya-Sin Jersey , a junior at Louisville just a year ago, has been a starter for just under two months. The 21-year-old will be the youngest quarterback ever to start in the postseason.But the Ravens are 6-1 with Jackson as a starter, and his ability to run has turned Baltimore’s offense into a very efficient unit.“There’s no substitute for experience,” Ravens offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said. But he quickly added: “Now sometimes, it’s the quality of experience as well. Man alive, look at all the things he’s done — a very mature young man for that age in many, many ways. And, he’s a very confident guy.”Some other things to know about the first meeting playoff game involving the Ravens and Chargers:BEEN A WHILEThis is the Chargers’ first postseason appearance since the 2013 season, and second since 2010.“When you’re younger you think this is it; you get a shot every year,” Rivers said. “Then when you go once in the last nine or 10 years, you realize how fleeting it is and how hard it is to get in.”Baltimore is coming off a three-year playoff absence.“Coming into this league, playing these games, this was what you hoped for,” said Ravens linebacker Matthew Judon, who broke into the NFL in 2016.QUICKER STARTSThe Chargers have been outscored 43-14 in the first quarter the past six games. Rivers has thrown an interception on the opening drive the past three games, which has resulted in 10 points for the opposition. In the first 10 games http://www.coltsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-ben-banogu-jersey , Los Angeles outscored teams 64-55 over the first 15 minutes.“It’s something we’ve talked about and it’s definitely something that we can’t afford to do,” offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt said of the recent poor starts. “That’s what our goal is going into this game.”ALL ON THE LINEWith the Chargers’ linebackers undersized because of injuries, the defensive line will need another good game. Joey Bosa has four sacks in six games since missing the first 10 with a foot injury.The Chargers had three sacks in the first meeting against Baltimore, but Jackson also had plenty of plays in which he was able to move up in the pocket to complete passes in his lone 200-yard game.“There is such a thing as a good missed tackle, as long as you go fast with proper leverage,” defensive coordinator Gus Bradley said. “We don’t want missed tackles, but if they show up with the right leverage, it’s more of that mindset with him that we have to play fast with them and try to eat up the grass.”KEEP AN EYE ON …The kickers. Baltimore’s Justin Tucker missed only four field goal tries this season — two were blocked — and ranks first in NFL history with a 90.1 career average.Los Angeles rookie Michael Badgley has provided stability, hitting 15 of 16 field goals. The Chargers have had seven kickers the past two seasons. FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Le’Veon Bell simply couldn’t control himself. Well, mostly his mouth.The New York Jets running back was back on a practice field for the first time in 17 months and was downright giddy. And, he let his new teammates on defense know all about it.“It was amazing,” a grinning Bell said Tuesday after the Jets began their three-day minicamp. “Just running around and just being able to trash talk and catch some balls and just sweat in your helmet — you know, things that we kind of take for granted when you’re playing.“The fact I had that whole year off and came out here and played football again, it felt so good.”Bell, who sat out voluntary workouts this offseason Khari Willis Jersey , was limited in his first full practice with the Jets. But, he was plenty involved with ratcheting up the overall energy on the field — talking smack with defensive players throughout.“You’ve got a loudmouth on defense,” a smiling left tackle Kelvin Beachum said, referring to always-chatty safety Jamal Adams. “And, now, we’ve got a loudmouth on offense.“It’ll be fun.”Bell signed a four-year, $52.5 million deal — including $35 million guaranteed — with the Jets in March after sitting out all last season with Pittsburgh in a contract dispute.The 27-year-old running back has been around his teammates sporadically throughout the offseason, but chose to work out on his own with a personal trainer in Florida rather than participate in the team’s voluntary workouts.So, his arrival Tuesday made for a playoff-sized gathering of media finally getting a glimpse of Bell in uniform and taking handoffs from Sam Darnold.“When he’s out there, when he’s in the huddle, a defensive coordinator doesn’t know where he’s going to line up, doesn’t know what’s coming his way,” Darnold said. “With Le’Veon out there, we definitely become a little bit more unpredictable.”Bell has rushed for 5,336 yards and 35 touchdowns, and has 312 catches for 2 Josh Allen Jersey ,660 yards and seven scores in his NFL career. Using a deliberate running style that throws off defenders, his 128.9 yards from scrimmage per game over his career is the best mark in the NFL since the 1970 merger.But, after missing a full season, there are some who wonder if Bell will still be the same versatile and dynamic force he had been as one of the best running backs in the league.“Maybe people forget a little bit just because they haven’t seen it in a long time,” he said. “It’s normal. That’s what humans do. But I feel like once I go out here, I play, first game coming up, people will be reminded.“Right now is not the time.”Coach Adam Gase said the Jets will be “smart” with Bell during minicamp, limiting his carries and physical activity while he works himself into football shape and gets comfortable in the offense.“A lot of people are expecting a lot from me, and I’m expecting a lot from myself,” Bell said. “So, I don’t want to let nobody down. I want to go out there and be the best me. That’s why I was training one-on-one with my trainer, getting to where I need to get to make sure I’m in shape when I come here I can take every snap — if they ask me to.”There were recent reports that Gase was not in favor of the Jets signing Bell at the price he ended up costing. But the coach said above all else, he’s excited about having a running back of Bell’s caliber. Bell says the two have a “great” relationship and cleared the air.There’s also the hope that perhaps the Jets could even get him to perform at a level higher than his best days with Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers.“As a coaching staff, you’re always going to think that,” Gase said. “As a player Parris Campbell Jersey , I know that in his mind, he thinks there’s more he can do.”Despite Bell not being at the facility during the offseason, he and Gase remained in constant contact — with the running back routinely texting the coach videos of his workouts. Bell has also chatted often with teammates, including Darnold and fellow running back Ty Montgomery, to get a better feel for the playbook.Bell still feels rusty, and that’s understandable after such a long layoff. He has no doubts, however, that he’ll be at full speed when he needs to be.He thinks he’ll get more opportunities in Gase’s offense, which is saying a lot since he had a whopping 406 touches during the 2017 season. Bell also is excited by what he has seen from Darnold, whose progress in his second year will be directly tied to how he and his star running back click.“I think Sam’s going to make me a better player because of the fact he’s so mobile and he’s going to create opportunities for me that I wouldn’t usually have,” Bell said. “And I think the same thing for me: I’m going to make opportunities for him that he’s never had, really, before.“So we’re going to kind of bounce off each other and I think we’re going to be a special duo in the backfield.”
