Cubs halt O's rally, third out confirmed by replay
The Orioles watched a potential fifth-inning rally go by the wayside, as a crew-chief review confirmed the on-field ruling that catcher John Baker wasn't illegally blocking home plate for the inning-ending out.
Norris looks to keep rolling, help O's build AL East lead
It might not be all that surprising if the Orioles-Cubs matinee on Saturday at Wrigley Field turns into a pitchers' duel. Baltimore righty Bud Norris, fresh off one of his best starts of the season, will get the ball opposite Chicago rookie Kyle Hendricks, who has turned in six straight quality starts.
O's hitters stifled by former teammate Arrieta
On Friday, Baltimore got a front-row seat to see Jake Arrieta's development, as he continued to put together a career season with seven dominant innings for the Cubs against his former club. Arrieta, who retired the first 13 batters he faced, held the O's to one run -- Nelson Cruz's career-high 34th homer -- and outpitched O's righty Kevin Gausman to hand first-place Baltimore a 4-1 series-opening loss.

Redskins, Ravens focus on selves, not rivalry (The Associated Press)
The Redskins and Ravens have more important goals Saturday night than bragging rights in a tepid rivalry. ''The main thing is, it's our third preseason game and we're really looking at ourselves,'' Baltimore coach John Harbaugh said. ''You don't concern yourself with your opponent so much in the preseason, in terms of game-planning or scheming.'' The Redskins and Ravens play at home 32 miles apart in Maryland. One's in the NFC, the other AFC.

Forbes ranked NFL's best fans, and you already know who was first (Shutdown Corner)
You can say a lot of things about Green Bay, and coming from someone who lived near there for a while, I've said all of them myself. But if you do an "NFL's best fans" ranking and have anyone but Packers fans in the top spot, you're trying too hard to be different. Forbes got it right. They ranked the best NFL fan bases , using a formula of attendance, television ratings, merchandise sales and percentage of population that watched or attended their hometown team's games. The Packers' fans ranked first, because there really is no other option. According to Forbes, market researchers Nielsen Scarborough found that "84 percent of adults in Green Bay are Packers fans, identified as such having watched, attended, and/or listened to the team’s games this past year." You can't find 84 percent of people in most communities to agree that water is wet, much less on a football team. Now, here's where you say that Packers fans are so into the team because there's nothing else to do in Northeast Wisconsin, and that's what Forbes did: "It seems little else goes on there to compete for their attention, and anything that does revolves around the team," Forbes wrote. They've totally glossed over deer hunting and ice fishing and cheese curd and 22-inch kielbasa eating, but that's fine. The Packers are indisputably the NFL's top fans, and I'm sure they're proud to be recognized as such. The top spot was a foregone conclusion, but the rest of Forbes' top 10 had some debatable picks: 2. Denver Broncos 3. New Orleans Saints 4. New England Patriots 5. Baltimore Ravens 6. Indianapolis Colts 7. (tie) Dallas Cowboys 7. (tie) Pittsburgh Steelers 9. Seattle Seahawks 10. Chicago Bears Now, you can click that link above and take a look at how they came to those rankings, but I think we can all agree the Steelers and Seahawks need to be in the top 5. After last season's Super Bowl, I'm pretty sure Seahawks fans booked flights to random destinations, just to walk around in their No. 12 jersey and accept congratulations for winning the title. They've been everywhere since early February. And Steelers fans just seem to travel in packs from visiting city to visiting city to buy up all the home team's tickets and be passionate (or, perhaps "obnoxious" if you wish) in their stadium. A bit surprising Washington wasn't in the top 10, but maybe Forbes couldn't remember them because we haven't heard much about the team and its nickname lately. Here's where you, fans of the 31 teams who did not make the top spot (eh, let's make it 30, I'm not sure there really are any Tennessee Titans fans) can vent. Why did Forbes screw up this ranking of best NFL fans? (Spoiler alert: I bet they're haters against your team.)

Injuries, lack of depth test Ravens defensive line (The Associated Press)
Baltimore's defensive line has been hit hard by injuries, hard enough to give the Ravens reason to be concerned. The Ravens have already lost two defensive linemen to season-ending injuries, and nose tackle Terrence Cody remains sidelined after hip surgery. Brandon Williams is expected to become the starting nose tackle, with Ngata shifting to defensive tackle.
Redskins' Gruden: a night owl who needs his sleep (The Associated Press)
Jay Gruden is more of a night owl than an early bird, which puts him in the Joe Gibbs category among Washington Redskins head coaches. Norv Turner and Mike Shanahan liked to arrive absurdly early to satisfy the workaholic lifestyle that has become synonymous among NFL coaches. ''Jay lets the coaches coach,'' said Chris Foerster, who was retained as offensive line coach.
Cowboys LB Holloman has career-ending neck injury (The Associated Press)
The Dallas Cowboys said Thursday that linebacker DeVonte Holloman has a career-ending neck injury related to a spinal problem that kept him out almost half of his rookie season a year ago. Coach Jason Garrett said Holloman was advised not to play again after doctor evaluations this week. After missing the first two days of practice this week, the 23-year-old Holloman was on the field Thursday in his No. 57 jersey but didn't appear in the locker room when it was open to reporters after Garrett's announcement. Garrett wouldn't discuss details of the injury other than saying Holloman has been dealing with a neck issue ''the last couple of weeks.'' Holloman came out of last weekend's preseason game against Baltimore midway through the fourth quarter because of the injury.
