(Eds: With AP Photos.) By TIM DAHLBERG AP Sports Columnist Just before the sixth quarter of one of the most fascinating and improbable NFL playoff games you'll ever see, Justin Tucker trotted out onto the field and did something you hardly ever see.
He practiced making a field goal. And for one of the few times on a frigid afternoon-turned-evening in Denver, something turned out exactly as planned.
The game that seemed like it was destined never to end finally did, much to the dismay of 76,732 shivering fans and a quarterback who had seemed destined to take the Denver Broncos to the Super Bowl. It was Peyton Manning's interception that gave the Baltimore Ravens their golden opportunity in the 38-35 win, though Manning could hardly be blamed for the Broncos being in that position to begin with.
He was still playing deep into overtime for the same reason Ray Lewis will go on to play at least one more game before calling it a career. Lewis was on the sideline probably rehear...
BEST OF MAXIM
Ravens defensive lineman Paul Kruger took a shot at Peyton Manning on Twitter after his team beat the Broncos. See what he said.
This is one of the more interesting questions as the NFL kicks off its divisional playoffs later today. Peyton Manning’s record in cold weather games hasn’t been great, and now we hear he’ll be wearing gloves for this playoff game. The Broncos are heavy favorites today as they host the Ravens, and many Ravens fans and those betters taking the points are hoping Peyton will freeze...
The Ravens shocked football fans on Saturday by taking down the Denver Broncos who came out of the gate strong and from the outset looked to be setting the tone. The Ravens kept their cool and battled back in double overtime to defeat the Broncos 38-35. And while much was made about Peyton Manning’s nine [...]
The Ravens and Broncos will feature a bit of a chess match between Peyton Manning and Ray Lewis, two of the biggest names in the game. The night game, Green Bay at San Francisco, features quarterbacks with two very different levels of experience.
Last night, NFL pundits celebrated the illustrious career of one of the fiercest competitors to ever don an NFL uniform. From the analysts in the booth and studio to the hundreds of media types tweeting sentimental snippets, Lewis was hailed as a great leader, a great competitor, a great tackler…great, great, great.

I’ll make this short and sweet.
The NFL playoffs have been amazing. Thanks to Barry Barnes from LockerReport.com for breaking down all four of this past weekend’s games and giving insight into the Baltimore Ravens and Ray Lewis. I did ask the tough questions they are not asking in Baltimore regarding Ray Lewis and the 2000 Super Bowl.
WPLG’s Will Manso joined me to discuss...
That was quick.
On their third offensive play of the game, Denver quarterback Peyton Manning threw a pick-six to cornerback Corey Graham.
Graham’s interception gave the Ravens a 14-7 lead with less than 10 minutes left in the first quarter. The interception was set up by a Chykie Brown tipped pass.
Who will you be rooting for on Saturday? Baltimore or Denver?
Raj: I got a lot of criticism for fellow Patriots fans on twitter for my decision to root for the Ravens last Sunday and that isn't changing. One reason is because Ray Rice carried Rutgers to glory and I am a Jersey guy. Pride apart, I also rooted for the Ravens because let's be honest, who is a much tougher...
When you think about it, 31-seconds is not a lot of time. Most commercials run about 30 seconds. “Wait a minute,” is composed of two 30-second halves.
But, as we know, 31-seconds can last an eternity, just ask Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson.
Both teams were 31 seconds from victory and advancing to their conference championship game. But 31-seconds can be an eternity in the...
With Tebow nowhere in sight, it was Ravens defensive captain Ray Lewis this time preaching to viewers that “nothing is impossible with God.”
Joe Flacco stripped the annoying monkey off his back (again) and orchestrated his offense (near-flawlessly) versus a defense that ranked 3rd against the pass (199.6 ypg). Without fear, he catapulted touchdowns, to Jacoby Jones (1) and Torrey...
The morning after the Baltimore Ravens came from behind to beat the top seeded Broncos at home the discussion isn’t about Joe Flacco’s impressive run of recent playoff success; nor is it about Denver’s interesting clock management decisions that came back to haunt them, it is centered on Peyton Manning’s legacy - but disparaging the quarterback is misguided...
So it didn't take long for the very mouthy Ravens to start trash talking the Patriots.This time it wasn't Ray Lewis, it wasn't Terrell Suggs. Nope, it was someone you've never heard of. Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo. He pretty much pulled out all the hard hitters on this one.New England does some suspect stuff on offense. Can't really respect it. Comparable...
