Baltimore Ravens veteran linebacker Ray Lewis is focused on the playoffs - not time off.
Prior to Sunday's postseason victory over the Houston Texans, Lewis told the NFL Network that he's not interested in entertaining any thoughts of retirement while there are games to play.
"Let me sum it up for all players: this is a one-time thing," Lewis said in the interview...
Momentum is a mighty hammer in the playoffs. Once it swings down on you, it is awfully hard to recover. Momentum swung early for the Texans with a 60-yard return of the game-opening kickoff and a quick 3-0 lead.

In today’s first game, Houston will attempt to reach the AFC Championship Game against New England…but they’ll have to beat Ray...
