Destination: San Diego and San Francisco


SAN DIEGO -- I've arrived on the West Coast for my AFC North doubleheader. The game plan is to cover the Ravens at San Diego on Sunday night and Steelers at San Francisco on Monday night.

Let's just say I had a better trip out here than the Ravens, who didn't land here until around midnight because of mechanical problems with the plane (there was something wrong with a valve). Outside linebacker Terrell Suggs tweeted: "Oh dear god, we landed."

According to Comcast SportsNet, the team almost had to delay its flight out of Baltimore until Saturday morning. Most teams that have games on the opposite coast go on Fridays so players can adjust to the time change.

The Ravens eventually took off two hours late and had a walkthrough Saturday morning.
