Cigarette litter may be small but it is really nasty to me. In my mind, no litter is "good" litter, but there is nothing messier than seeing sidewalks and curbs "decorated" with cigarette butts, disposable lighters, matches and cigarette packaging. This is also a growing problem. Although it is small, cigarette litter is increasingly close to 20 percent of the collected litter items in community cleanups.

Standing in the path of an Atlanta team intent on establishing the run to spare its own sinking 31st-ranked defense is Baltimore's 3-4 scheme capable of winning - if not dominating - every matchup up front. Atlanta's edge is on the perimeter with wide receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White, who had 12 catches in his last game against the Ravens. Quarterback Matt Ryan makes too many throws eye-to-eye with pass rushers and more horizontal patterns and dump-offs to running backs Antone Smith and Steven Jackson spreads Baltimore's attacking linebackers.
