Former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis can’t believe that the lights went out by accident during last season’s Super Bowl, per USA Today Sports.
“I’m not gonna accuse nobody of nothing — because I don’t know facts,” says Lewis. “But you’re a zillion-dollar company, and your lights go out? No. (Laughs) No way.
“Now listen, if you grew up like I grew up — and you grew up in a household like I grew up — then sometimes your lights might go out, because times get hard. I understand that. But you cannot tell me somebody wasn’t sitting there and when they say, ‘The Ravens (are) about to blow them out. Man, we better do something.’ … That’s a huge shift in any game, in all seriousness. And as you see how huge it was because it let them right back in the game.”
Lewis’ opinion makes sense, but no one can prove it right now.

Making sense has never been the strength of Ray Lewis' oration game, but now the retired Baltimore Ravens linebacker is careening past motivational nonsense and into the realm of the conspiracy theory.
Remember when the lights went out during Super Bowl XLVII? Lewis says that was no accident.

Ray Lewis left the game of football a two-time champion after winning Super Bowl XLVII, but the now-infamous power outage that occurred in the third quarter almost derailed the Ravens victory, and Lewis doesn’t believe the strange occurrence was accidental.
Prior to the blackout, Baltimore was leading the 49ers by a score of 28-6. The Ravens seemed to be cruising to a sure victory...
Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh thinks the team is so stocked at the wide receiver position going into the 2013 season that they're considering trading one of them, reports Chris Wesseling of NFL.com.
Baltimore Ravens defensive lineman Elvis Dumervil received a five year, $45 million dollar contract from the Ravens this offseason and has spent some of that on a new mansion in Parkland, Florida. Too bad he is going to have to wait a few months to actually spend some time here.

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is becoming enemy No. 1 for Denver Broncos fans after posters with his likeness have been appearing around the Mile High City in preparation for the NFL regular season opener against Peyton Manning and company on Thursday night.

As I wrote a few weeks ago, the Baltimore Ravens held out
hope that tight end, Dennis Pitta, could
return at some point in the 2013 campaign after Pitta suffered a fractured
hip during preseason. With the regular season
just a first down away; the Ravens are still leaving the locker room door open.
Wesseling of NFL.com reports that the Baltimore Ravens believe TE, Dennis...
Entering the preseason, many wondered if quarterback Joe
Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens would be able to duplicate their productivity
considering so many receiver options had been lost since the end of their Super
Bowl-winning campaign, including Dennis Pitta and Anquan Boldin. While this
appeared to be a concern for the team early on, it apparently no longer is, as
Johnny Manziel‘s on-the-field and off-the-field antics have left many people rooting against the Texas A&M quarterback as of late, but there are a handful of people out there still cheering for him, and one of those fans just happens to be Joe Flacco.
After taking a lot of heat for the posters of himself that started to pop up in Denver at Sports Authority Field at Mile High...
The consensus around the NFL is that wide receiver is a weakness for the Baltimore Ravens as they embark on a defense of their Super Bowl title.
The organization doesn't see it the same way. In fact coach John Harbaugh revealed Friday that the Ravens consider themselves so rich in young receiver talent that they're hoping to unload one in a trade.
"We'd love for...
The Ravens need so much help at other positions right now they just couldn't afford to keep LaQuan Williams. Too bad. LaQuan has the kind of work ethic and contagious enthusiasm for the sport which you'd like to keep around. I remember how LaQuan basically made this team a few years ago by literally walking on to tryouts. He had volunteered to help train his friend and...
Giant banners of Joe Flacco hang from the stadium in Denver, where nobody needed the larger-than-life reminders that his 70-yard touchdown toss in the final minute of regulation ruined the Broncos' Super Bowl hopes and propelled the Ravens to the title.
