By now, there is a good chance you know how I feel about the offensive x-factors on both the Ravens and Niners, so I wanted to also take a look at their defenses. I actually think this is the most interesting side of the football for this particular game.Â With his retirement after a long, illustrious career, Ray Lewis is dominating the news. But we already know about him and Ed Reed, so letâs look at a lesser known player who has to step it up if he wants to get a ring.
