Baltimore Ravens Notes, Quotes 2008-12-09
--Turns out that running back wasn't the only position of change for the Ravens. Yamon Figurs, Ed Reed and Jim Leonhard each took a turn fielding punt returns during the first half. Leonhard called for a fair catch on one punt, returned one for 4 yards, and returned another for a modest gain in the second quarter, but it was negated by an illegal block in the back by Wilcox. Reed also called for a fair catch on a punt.


Figurs, who before Sunday's games, ranked 12th in the AFC and 22nd in the NFL with a 6.0 average on punt returns this season, returned one punt for 5 yards but bruised his left knee and did not return.

"We think we have some returners, as you know," coach John Harbaugh said.

--Terrell Suggs' sack of Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell early in the fourth quarter gave the linebacker 511/2 sacks for his career. That vaulted him past former Raven Michael McCrary (51) for second place in career sacks for Baltimore. Suggs trails only Peter Boulware, who registered 70 sacks between 1997 and 2005.

"It's amazing how when you don't aim for stuff like that, it kind of just happens," Suggs said. "I like to think of myself as a team player, and I don't try to shoot for individual goals, but the more I just keep playing hard for my team and Rex (Ryan), great things like that will keep happening."

--After blocking a punt in a 36-7 win against the Philadelphia Eagles two weeks ago, Jameel McClain was at it again. The linebacker stretched out his right hand to get a piece of a Ryan Plackemeier punt on Washington's second series of the game.

The punt traveled just 21 yards to the Ravens' 44-yard line, but the Ravens could not take advantage of the generous field position and were forced to punt.

"It was a good job by everybody," McClain said. "I beat the snapper with a good move, and I got in there."

--The Ravens sported black jerseys and white pants for the first time this season.

--Washington was the last current NFL franchise to visit the Ravens' home stadium.
