When it comes to Ray Lewis and the celebration/glorification of his illustrious, 17-season NFL career, the cliche "what's done is done" applies.
As his career comes to a close, perhaps this weekend when the Ravens take on Peyton Manning and the Broncos, football fans should not be ashamed of loving Ray Lewis. He's earned our admiration and respect.
That is not...
Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis took exception to Indianapolis wide receiver Reggie Wayne calling his dance at the end of Sunday's AFC wild-card game disrespectful. Lewis, who announced last week that he's retiring from the NFL after 17 seasons when the Ravens are eliminated from the playoffs, said he wasn't taunting the Colts or rubbing it in. "It wasn...
Monte Sanders, a fitness expert and the CEO and owner of Sanders Optimum Fitness, is way more than just the celebrity trainer to Baltimore Ravens' stars Ray Lewis and Ed Reed. We go inside the brotherhood that began with training.
With the Baltimore Ravens facing off against the New England Patriots in the AFC Divisional Playoff round, I figured it was the perfect time to show off this clip of a volunteer diver at the National Aquarium in Baltimore doing the "Ray Lewis Dance".
Here is Michael Glass showing off his smooth moves at the Aquarium's Atlantic Coral Reef exhibit:

Like the Denver Broncos, the team they’ll be facing off
against in today’s AFC Divisional round game, the Baltimore Ravens boast a
healthy unit entering the second round of the playoffs. The Ravens only have
one player, offensive lineman Jah Reid, that’s listed as less than probable for
Reid will remain sidelined due to his toe injury. The
Ravens fullback Vonta Leach and running back Bernard Pierce both returned to practice Thursday on a limited basis.
Leach missed Wednesday's session with knee and ankle injuries, while Pierce missed practice with a knee ailment.
Leach paved the way for a Ravens running game that racked up 170 yards, including 103 from Pierce, during Baltimore's 24-9 victory over the...

One day before facing the Broncos in the divisional round of the playoffs, the Ravens placed starting offensive guard Jah Reid (toe) on injured reserve.
Reid did not play in Baltimore’s win over the Colts last week in the wild card round of the playoffs and will be replaced by Bobbie Williams on the Ravens’ offensive line. Williams started...
The Ravens are not the same defense they were a few years ago, the Broncos are going to roll.
The Wildcard games disappointed for one reason, quarterback play. That will not be a problem this weekend. The marquee quarterbacks are off their bye weeks and are ready to lead their teams onto the field.
Here is a look at the games and my selection of the winners.
Going into the divisional round, the matchups have a certain gene c’est qua that the wildcard games lack. Even with my beloved Colts were eliminated by the passionate performance of the Baltimore Ravens, I am excited for this week’s matchups.
Let’s begin with the first of the two Saturday matchups.
Baltimore Ravens at Denver Broncos (Saturday 4:30 PM EST)
Last week, the Ravens...
The Denver Broncos will host the Baltimore Ravens this afternoon in what will be the coldest of any of the playoff games played this weekend. Temperatures could be in the single digits by the end of the game and there is a 30% chance of snow to be flying. This game marks Peyton Manning’s return to the playoffs after sitting out the 2011 season while dealing with a neck injury....
Last week’s wildcard weekend saw no underdogs winning in what ended up being four lopsided games. Solid victories came at home for Baltimore, Green Bay, and Houston (yes, I know they only won by six points but they dominated time of possession and never really looked threatened by Cincinnati). Seattle completed the superfecta for the favorites with a road win at Washington. All...
8 a.m. ET: Ray Lewis strutted his stuff all over the field for his last hoorah in Baltimore last weekend, but he won’t receive the same warm reception up in Denver.
The Ravens are coming off an easy 24-9 win over the Indianapolis Colts in wild card weekend, but they’ll have a much tougher test with Peyton Manning and the No. 1 seed Broncos awaiting them this weekend.
