Hauschka and Gano share a room in the team hotel. On the practice field, they usually stick together unless one of them is called upon to kick. Not only do they like each other, but each respects the ability of his counterpart.

One of them will end up with the Ravens. The other may ultimately kick for the opposition.
"They've studied themselves. They've studied others. I don't think this is going to be an easy decision," special teams coach Jerry Rosburg said. "I may be proven wrong, but I think this is going to be one of those decisions where you'd love to keep them both. But we can't."
