For once, Ray Lewis is choosing to excuse himself from the spotlight. Lewis, who retired from the NFL after last year’s Super Bowl, was invited by the Ravens to join the team on the sideline for Thursday night’s season opener against the Broncos in Denver, according to ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio (via Pro Football Talk). The future Hall of Famer reportedly declined the invitation, however, saying that his focus is now on his family. The only appearance Lewis will make at Mile High will be on the Jumbotron, which will show a video of former players from each of the 32 NFL teams counting down the final 32 seconds before kickoff. Lewis will be Baltimore’s representative in the video, while eight-time Pro Bowl tight end Shannon Sharpe will represent the Broncos. Filed under: Baltimore Ravens, Headlines, NFL, Zack Cox

Ravens party more than doubles Orioles home game attendance

Now that the opening NFL game is in the books, the Baltimore Ravens may want to go back and ask the Baltimore Orioles why?

Report: Jacoby Jones to Miss Four to Six Weeks With MCL Sprain After Getting Run Over by Teammate

Columbus Dispatch mixes up John Elway and Peyton Manning

The editor at the Columbus Dispatch obviously was asleep at the wheel when they were going through this article talking about the Denver Broncos-Baltimore Ravens game.  The title of the article said “Elway Throws For Seven Touchdown passes” and the first two words of the article are “Peyton Manning.”  Then the next paragraph starts with “Elway” and the following one...
