Ravens get the extra day
Maybe it was a good thing NFL commissioner Roger Goodell was in attendance today at M&T Bank Stadium, since the Ravens took the face-to-face opportunity to lobby for the Sunday game next week in Miami.
What a week-plus of football in the Miami area. The Orange Bowl between Cincinnati and Virginia Tech will be played on New Year's Day at Dolphin Stadium. The Ravens and Dolphins play at 1 p.m. on Sunday. And the BCS Championship Game will be played there between Oklahoma and Florida the following Thursday.
If you're looking for a hotel room at a decent price, good luck.
