RATINGS HOPES

RATINGS HOPES

Three years running, the Super Bowl has set a TV viewership record. CBS is hoping that happens again on Sunday.

Last year, NBC's broadcast hit an average audience of 111.3 million people.

But ratings are a mere point of pride for CBS heading into kickoff. The ads have already been sold (some at more than $4 million a pop), so the network can now only hope to put forth its best broadcast and redirect as much of the Super Bowl glow toward its other programs and its cable sports network.

Telecasters Jim Nantz and Phil Simms will call the game while more than 60 cameras cover the action - with at least one keeping an eye on the parents of 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Hayden Hurst is actually all set for training camp

<em>This post has been updated with a correction to Hurst's injury status.</em>

Kick off your Wednesday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

1. Some good news for Ravens fans: Despite reports earlier that a hamstring injury has left tight end Hayden Hurst 'questionable' to participate in training camp from Rotoworld, he said he's doing just fine. Hurst had hamstring issues previously but returned to practice. Last season, Hurst missed four games following foot surgery. After a previous version of this post was published, he tweeted that he is not questionable for camp. We regret the error. 

2. On "Good Morning Football," Maurice Jones-Drew called Earl Thomas the new Ed Reed. Jones-Drew says Thomas will have the biggest defensive impact on his new spot with the Ravens.

Looking Ahead:

July 15: 4 p.m. ET deadline to get a long-term deal done with designated franchise tag players.

The 2019 NFL schedule is set! See the Baltimore Ravens defend the AFC North at M&T Bank Stadium this season. Get your tickets now at www.BaltimoreRavens.com/tickets.
