Greatest NFL coincidence of all time? Ray Lewis will be playing his last game pitted against the man who he got his first career sack off–49ers coach Jim Harbaugh.
17 years ago, back when Reverend Ray was still just in proverbial Sunday school, he got his first career sack off 33-year-old Colts Quarterback Jim Harbaugh. NFL.com dug up the almost too awesome to believe stat and even found the film of it, to boot. Albeit there’s no sound to go with it.
Lewis’ rookie year was also the Ravens first year after having moved to Baltimore from Cleveland. Crazy how small the world can be.

However, he is hardly the only reason Baltimore is headed to New Orleans for Super Bowl 47.

It made for great story lines all week. The upstart, emotional Ravens, playing for Ray Lewis' retirement, come to New England seeking revenge against a superior offense.Joe Flacco, set to prove that he is in the same league as Tom Brady, needs to repeat his performance from a week earlier in Denver; can New England's defense rise to the challenge, or are they as weak as everyone...
Get ready for the Brother Bowl.

Et tu, Anna?
Nary a year since Gisele Bundchen made herself famous among sports fans for her profanity-riddled defense of her husband, Wes Welker‘s new bride has jumped into the fray.

The Ravens will leave Foxboro, Massachusetts with an AFC Conference Championship trophy and a weeping, highly-respected leader, Ray Lewis.
The teary-eyed leader has a chance to now retire from the game with a Super Bowl ring, the same way John Elway, Jerome Bettis, and Michael Strahan did after their illustrious careers.
