Ray Lewis' season is over -- is the same true for the Baltimore Ravens? Everything seemed to be lining up so well for the Ravens. They are 5-1, already have a two-game lead in the AFC North and are one of just two teams in the conference with a winning record. But just when it was starting to look like the Ravens might have a shot at returning to the Super Bowl for the first time since winning it all in 2000 (Lewis was the MVP of that game), the news came Monday that their star linebacker's season was over when he tore his right triceps during Sunday's 31-29 victory over Dallas.

Maybe San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers was still in shock. But after a historic collapse against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos on "Monday Night Football," Rivers basically characterized what had just happened on the football field as just another loss. “Every loss hurts,” he said after the 35-24 loss to the Broncos. “Regardless of what negative or bad plays or how you lose a game, when you lose a game, it's rough. Especially a game when you had such a big lead.

UFC President Dana White told The Times on Tuesday that Jones and Sonnen have been assigned as opposing coaches in the third installment of "The Ultimate Fighter" on FX, creating some extensive pre-fight hype for their April 27 pay-per-view title match at a site to be determined.

Three companies that gambled to bring private toll lanes to Orange County will receive about $100 million from the deal and 90 of their employees will keep their jobs operating the 91 Express Lanes for their new bosses. Financial representatives declined to reveal just how much profit they will recoup from the deal after they pay off various expenses that went into keeping the toll lanes afloat while it lost money for three of its four years.
