Flacco, Rice, Dumervil active vs. Patriots

The Ravens listed three key players as questionable for today's meaningful home matchup against the Patriots, and all three are active.

Quarterback Joe Flacco (knee), running back Ray Rice (thigh) and linebacker Elvis Dumervil (ankle) will all be in uniform for Baltimore.

But that means tight end Dallas Clark will be taking a seat for the third straight week. Joining Clark as inactive are cornerback Asa Jackson, safety Omar Brown, linebacker Albert McClellan, center Ryan Jensen, wideout Deonte Thompson and defensive tackle Brandon Williams.

The Patriots deactivated tight end D.J. Williams, linebacker Dane Fletcher, tackle Nate Solder, wideout Josh Boyce, wideout Kenbrell Thompkins, defensive tackle Isaac Sopoaga and defensive end Jake Bequette.

The Ravens have won their last two meetings with New England and could have a shot to clinch a playoff spot today, since Buffalo is up 10-0 on Miami in the fourth quarter. San Diego plays Oakland at 4:25 p.m., and Baltimore needs the Chargers to lose or tie. Oh, and the Ravens need to win.
