BALTIMORE - Mired in a two-game losing streak and stuck in last place, the Baltimore Ravens broke out their old recipe for success to earn a much-needed victory.The Ravens have long relied on a strong running game and a suffocating defence to win, and that was precisely the formula Baltimore used to beat the Tennessee Titans 21-7 Sunday.Justin Forsett ran for 112 yards and two touchdowns to back a redemptive performance by the Baltimore defence that produced two turnovers, five sacks and plenty of helmet-ringing hits.The catalyst was really our defence, obviously, coach John Harbaugh said.The Ravens (6-4) repeatedly harassed rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger, who went 16 for 27 for 179 yards and an interception in his first road start in the NFL. He rarely got the chance to comfortably plant both feet in the pocket and was unable to move the offence after the first quarter.They got a lot of dudes, they got a lot of studs in that front seven — and they know it, Mettenberger said. Early in the first half we did a lot of good things to kind of counteract their guys. We just got to ... be able to play like that for 60 minutes.Tennessee didnt get its initial first down of the second half until 4:37 was left in the game. Soon after that, newcomer Danny Gorrer intercepted a pass to clinch it for the Ravens.Going into the bye, you want to feel good about things and get back on track, tight end Owen Daniels said. It was huge for us today.After the game, the Ravens complained that a CBS camera crew aired Harbaughs comments to the team in the locker room.The comments made by John Harbaugh in the locker room following todays victory over the Titans were meant for Ravens players and coaches only, Ravens Senior Vice-President Kevin Byrne said. The CBS-TV crew that was in the locker room was told by Coach Harbaugh that it could not broadcast what he was about to say.Byrne said CBS-TV immediately pulled the video and apologized to the Ravens.It was a bounce-back performance by a defence that was embarrassed seven days earlier in a 43-23 loss to Pittsburgh. In that game, Ben Roethlisberger threw for 340 yards and six touchdowns.In this one, the Ravens limited Tennessee to just 68 yards after the first quarter.Once we kind of got settled in and figured everything out, we did what we had to do, Baltimore defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan said.The Titans (2-7) have lost seven of eight. It was 7-all at halftime, but Tennessee had three three-and-outs in the third quarter while the Ravens took control.Tennessee had seven possessions without a first down and finished with a meagre 210 yards in offence.Coach Ken Whisenhunt didnt blame it all on Mettenberger.He did some good things today, made some good throws, Whisenhunt said. I think he did a nice job of operating today in this environment, which is not easy. But obviously, we have to be more productive.The Titans lost tight end Delanie Walker in the second quarter with a concussion. Walker, who came in tied for the team lead with 35 catches, got his hands on a pass and was turning upfield when struck high and hard by Terrence Brooks.The Ravens believe that hit made a lasting impression.I think the key play was when (Walker) was turned up, linebacker Elvis Dumervil said. You dont want to hurt a guy, but it was an aggressive, clean hit. It really made guys kind of think about running back there.Joe Flacco completed 16 of 27 passes for 169 yards and a touchdown for the Ravens, but the key was Forsett, who averaged 5.6 yards on his 20 carries.Baltimore went ahead for the first time with 5:36 left in the third quarter when Forsett scored on an 11-yard run to make it 14-7. Flacco went 5 for 5 on the 11-play, 72-yard drive.After the Titans failed to respond, Flacco hit Torrey Smith for a 32-yard touchdown with 13:09 left.The Ravens made only five first downs and were held to 86 yards in the first half.Tennessee took the opening kickoff and held the ball for more than eight minutes before Shonn Greene lost a fumble on third-and-goal at the Baltimore 1.After the Ravens went three and out, Mettenberger capped a nine-play drive with a 3-yard pass to Leon Washington. It was only the second time this season the Titans scored a touchdown in the first quarter.At that point, Tennessee had a 142-8 advantage in total yardage.Baltimore pulled even with a touchdown on its third possession. On a fourth-and-1 from the Tennessee 9,. Forsett took a pitchout and sprinted around Kamerion Wimbley into the end zone.Forsett earned the starting job after Ray Rice received an indefinite suspension from the NFL for domestic abuse. Now in his eighth season, Forsett has already reached career highs in yards (721), carries (133) and touchdowns (5).Its been a dream come true, just to get the opportunity to come out here and play and show what I can do, he said.NOTES: Titans RB Dexter McCluster left in the first quarter with a knee injury. ...

PETERSBURG, Fla.TAMPA, Fla. -- Having completed their regular-season series, the Tampa Bay Lightning and Montreal Canadiens soon could find themselves battling in the post-season. Tyler Johnson scored the go-ahead goal on a short-handed breakaway late in the third period and the Lightning clinched a playoff berth with a 3-1 victory over the Canadiens on Tuesday night. "Just being in the right spot and getting lucky sometimes," Johnson said. The win and losses by New Jersey and Washington gave Tampa Bay its first post-season berth since 2011 and only its second in seven years. Montreal ended a five-game winning streak, but also qualified for the post-season by virtue of the losses by New Jersey and Washington. Canadiens goalie Carey Price took some consolation in advancing to the post-season. "Were disappointed with our game today, but big picture, weve got to be happy with that," he said. The win moved Tampa Bay, with a game in hand, into a second-place tie with Montreal in the Atlantic Division. The second- and third-place teams in each division will meet in the first round of the playoffs. "Its just one game, but its really the 76 games all bottled into one," Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. "What you are really striving for is to win the Stanley Cup, but you cannot win the Cup if you dont get into the playoffs." With teammate Nate Thompson serving a minor penalty for boarding, Johnson picked up a loose puck near the Montreal blue line, skated in on Price and backhanded a shot inside the left post with 7:19 remaining in the game. Canadiens right wing Brendan Gallagher was on one knee in the low slot when he redirected a rebound past goalie Ben Bishop to open the scoring 10:18 into the first period. Ryan Callahan made it 1-1 on a ppower play 9:19 into the second, skating through the left circle toward Price and lifting a shot high into the net.dddddddddddd. Tampa Bay was on a power play when Alex Killorn closed out the scoring with an empty-netter with 45 seconds left in the third period. Bishop finished with 25 saves, while Price stopped 30 shots. Tampa Bay winger Teddy Purcell slammed a shot past Price with 11.7 seconds left in the second period, but the officials ruled forward J.T. Brown made contact with the goaltender and disallowed the goal. The call drew an angry response from Tampa Bay fans after a replay appeared on the video screen. The crowd also became irate when Montreals Douglas Murray drew a match penalty for an illegal check to the head of fellow defenceman Michael Kostka, setting up a 5-on-3 advantage for the Lightning with 2:13 left in the game. "If the crowds reaction was anything after they saw it, then it seems that it was illegal," Cooper said. "Those are the hits you want to take out of the game. Im sure Murray wasnt looking to hit him in the head." Lightning forward Ondrej Palat, who earlier in the day was named the top NHL rookie for the second time in three months, assisted on the goals by Callahan and Killorn. NOTES: Tampa Bay C Valtteri Filppula, who came in with the longest points streak in the league at 12 games, came up empty. . Montreal C Tomas Plekanec returned after missing one game for personal reasons. . The home team won for the first time in the four-game season series. Lightning captain Steven Stamkos was sidelined with a broken leg for the first three games, each of which went to overtime tied at 1. . Price came in victorious in nine of his 10 previous starts. Bishop improved to 8-1-1 in his last 10. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
