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.

Recent efforts by federal agencies to verify university compliance with Title IX are under scrutiny. Some claim Title IX compliance reviews are a "new" way to apply the law to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), but this law has been applicable to all educational programs receiving federal funds for 36 years. Title IX compliance can open the doors to the so-called "male-typical pursuitsî"in STEM fields to women, just as equal opportunity mandates have done for once-closed careers of firefighters, police officers and military personnel.
