From Down and Distance:
The AFC Divisional Round playoff game between the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens changed quickly in the final minute. Just when NFL fans thought Ray Lewis' career was coming to an end on a loss, Baltimore got the ball back with 1:09 left in the fourth quarter down by seven to the Denver Broncos.
It was up to Joe Flacco and company to drive the ball downfield to tie the game.
Flacco took a snap and ran up the middle on the first play. On the very next play, Denver lined up with a deep secondary and rushed three players. Flacco stepped up patiently in the pocket and found Jacoby Jones for a 70-yard bomb to tie the game at 35.
It was a huge play to set up OT, and it helped Jones redeem himself for a boneheaded drop earlier in the quarter.
Ray Lewis is going to make a lot of money as a motivational speaker in a few weeks when his playing days are over. We all know Ray Lewis the leader, the tackling machine, and premier middle linebacker in NFL history.
Many of our younger NFL fans are not aware of the Ray Lewis that fought for his life in a double murder trial in 2000. Lewis was eventually charged with obstructing...
Joe Flacco has had his share of critics during his career. He is finishing up the final year of his rookie contract and could become a free agent at the end of the season. Flaccon has long-sought a long-term deal from the Baltimore Ravens and after his performance on Saturday against the Denver Broncos, he has earned it. It’s is doubtful that the Ravens will allow Flacco to hit...
The Ravens and Broncos battled into two overtimes for one of the most memorable NFL playoff games in history, and the leaders of each team played their hearts out. Peyton Manning and Ray Lewis, each a little long in the tooth, put forth an amazing effort, and eventually the Ravens preveiled by a score of 38-35. Peyton paid Lewis the ultimate show of respect by sticking around (with...
After losing in double overtime and losing to the Baltimore Ravens 38-35 after skipping his post game interview, met with Ray Lewis in the locker room. Let’s consider what it is they could’ve discussed. Perhaps Peyton was asking Rev Ray tips on a speech to give his team next year. [...]
Peyton Manning and his family took some time to congratulate Ray Lewis following their Divisional Round playoff game on Saturday.
This photo was taken over 90 minutes after the game by the Ravens Director of Media Relations, Chad Steele.
Most of America was either asleep or watching Colin Kaepernick run over the Packers defense by this time.
I don’t know what to say. It’s really hard to defend Peyton Manning, like I have done for years, when he seemingly shrunk late in the fourth quarter and OT in the Denver Broncos’ loss to the Baltimore Ravens. So I won’t. Instead, we can talk about this picture with Peyton and Ray Lewis at the end of the game.
In the days leading up to what was supposed to be Ray Lewis’ retirement party, Denver and national sports broadcasters had already written off the Baltimore Ravens and anointed the Denver Broncos the Super Bowl champions. In his post game interview, Peyton Manning stated that his team was excited about playing in the AFC Championship [...]
It was supposed to be an easy day for the Denver Broncos by all accounts, but the Baltimore went toe to toe, tit for tat with them throughout, and in the first overtime period, Peyton Manning rolled out in Brett Favre like fashion and threw the interception that eventually set up Justin Tucker's 47-yard game winning field goal in double OT. Ray Lewis lives to see another...
The wife of a Baltimore Ravens fan recorded her husband going nuts during this past Saturday’s game. I could never imagine acting so crazy while watching a football game.
Below the guy goes nuts over Ray Rice’s third quarter touchdown.
Below is the the guy’s reaction to Jacoby Jones’ long TD catch and run.
In the clip below, the Ravens got an interception in overtime...
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.
Well, it didn’t take long for the internet to discover the craziest Baltimore Ravens fan on earth, who naturally was watching his team’s dramatic win over the Denver Broncos on Saturday. If you think you know someone who acts like more of a lunatic during a sporting event than the man you see above, we’d love it if you could share some footage with us.
As The Big Lead pointed...
