Ray Lewis closed out his storied NFL career with his second career Super Bowl victory. He was exposed in the passing game by 49ers tight end Vernon Davis, who ran past him for several catches. He did not make spectacular plays on the field, but he provided inspiration for Baltimore throughout the team’s Super Bowl run.
After the 34-31 win, Lewis was invited to speak on CBS’ podium where he thanked God for the victory.
“It’s simple: when God is for you, who can be against you?” Lewis responded when asked how to describe being a champion. “It’s no greater way as a champ to go out on your last ride with the men that I went out with.”
Lewis was also gripping the microphone the entire time as if he wanted to hijack the postgame show, but Jim Nantz wouldn’t allow it.
I don’t mind Lewis expressing his faith on the stage, but I don’t like his implication that God favors the Ravens over the 49ers. Do they not pray in San Francisco?
