Ray Lewis returned from injury only to announce he was retiring at the end of the year. That one announcement has triggered waves of emotion for both players and fans as they prepare to say goodbye to a guaraunteed Hall of Famer.We're now preparing for the third week in a row.Tony Gonzalez announced his retirement around the same time as the Super Bowl last year.He's had what could be the best year of his career, including his first-ever playoff victory.For me, the ideal story would be these two players (maybe even Ray Lewis trying to cover Tony Gonzalez) facing off for one last ring in the Super Bowl. However, that doesn't mean there won't be any added drama this year. Just consider some of these other possibilities:A brotherly battle between John Harbaugh and Jim Harbaugh (Ravens and 49ers).We all thought a match like this would happen this year, but between the Mannings. Then came the usual late collapse by the Giants, and this time they just couldn't snea...

I have to admit this is pretty funny.
I don’t think the game will be a blow out, the Ravens and Patriots always play close games. If the Ravens win this will be a lot of wasted money.
Last night, NFL pundits celebrated the illustrious career of one of the fiercest competitors to ever don an NFL uniform. From the analysts in the booth and studio to the hundreds of media types tweeting sentimental snippets, Lewis was hailed as a great leader, a great competitor, a great tackler…great, great, great.

And it will be the last game between Lewis and Tom Brady, a match up which has always been great. And we know Brady and Lewis respect the heck out of each other...
By now this photo has made the rounds, but we couldn’t resist sharing a genuine, un-staged moment between two of the greatest football players of our time.
Following the Broncos devastating 38-35 playoff loss to the Ravens – more than two hours after the game had ended – Peyton Manning met up with Ray Lewis in the visitor locker room to congratulate him on the victory:
So it didn't take long for the very mouthy Ravens to start trash talking the Patriots.This time it wasn't Ray Lewis, it wasn't Terrell Suggs. Nope, it was someone you've never heard of. Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo. He pretty much pulled out all the hard hitters on this one.New England does some suspect stuff on offense. Can't really respect it. Comparable...

The New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens have become familiar foes in recent years. In their nine meetings to date, the Patriots appear to have a significant advantage with a 7-2 record. But it is the more recent games that are troubling:In their lone meeting during the 2012 season, the Ravens squeezed by the Patriots by a single point.At the end of the 2011 season, the...
