Ray Lewis said this could be his last ride. I really don’t know if we should believe it or not. Lewis came into the Ravens first play-off game looking like a guy that could play for another 5 or 6 years. He was ready to perform at the usual Ray Lewis level and just him being there lifts the Ravens to a new high. With just 7 minutes left in the game, a quick look at the stats showed Lewis leading all Ravens in tackles with 12, 8 of those were solo tackles. The guy is one of the greatest Line-Backers of all time and will go into the NFL history books that way. What Ray Lewis brings to the field each time he plays, can’t be taught. Lewis brings the attitude only Ray Lewis can bring. His inspiration to the rest of the Baltimore Ravens defense is irreplaceable. When Lewis comes out of the tunnel it is like UN-caging a wild animal. If this is Lewis’s last NFL season, the Baltimore Ravens defense will never be the same.

While Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis is expected to
be back to full-go today against the Indianapolis Colts, safety Bernard
Pollard, wide receiver Tandon Doss and offensive lineman Jah Reid are all
questionable to suit up.

throughout the week, but each player has only been able to do so on a limited
basis. Pollard is...
After yesterday’s win over the Colts, Ravens safety Ed Reed didn’t care to speculate on his future with his contract expiring at the end of this season.“I’m not thinking about that right now,” Reed said, via the Baltimore Sun. “I’m football.

He's dealing with a shoulder injury.Fantasy Spin:The Ravens rested most of their starters last Sunday to avoid injury heading into this week's first round matchup against the Colts. Boldin's shoulder is fine and...
Baltimore halfback Ray Rice rushed for 70 yards and lost two fumbles Sunday against the Colts.Fantasy Spin:What's equally alarming is that Bernard Pierce saw almost as many carries as Rice did on Sunday (13 for Pierce, 15 for Rice). Could the Ravens be headed for a running back by committee system? Rice's fantasy owners better hope not.
As evidenced by pretty much anything that can be polled these days (which is pretty much everything), America is a nation that disagrees. From politics to deciding college football champions, this country qualifies performance by inventing ideas, strategies and formulas so murky that the inventor himself can rarely explain it the same way twice. Simply put, the way we decide who...

The Baltimore Ravens have the home field advantage going into today’s game as they take on the Indianapolis Colts at M & T Bank Stadium. They even have the, albeit slight, emotional edge heading into this one as legendary and sure fire first ballot hall of famer, Ray Lewis said he was going to hang [...]The post Keys To Victory for the Baltimore Ravens appeared first on Queen City Sports.
The Ravens’ defense has played well with Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, Haloti Ngata and Ed Reed all playing together for the first time this season. However, they’ve gotten little help from the offense.
Ray Rice fumbled in the red zone on the Ravens first possession. That ended a promising drive that began at their own 48-yard line.
The Colts returned the favor when Andrew Luck coughed...
It’s not often that you see Ray Rice fumble, in fact, it’s almost never.#Ravens Ray Rice only fumbled once on 257 carries in the regular season.— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) January 6, 2013It also seems pretty weird that the Indiana Hoosiers are playing in the NFL playoffs.Jim Delany doesn’t see any SEC teams in the NFL Playoffs. #B1G— Vico (@ourhonordefend) January 6, 2013
Joe Flacco keeps throwing the ball down the field. He also keeps completing the deep balls. Flacco found Anquan Boldin 46 yards downfield. Boldin has three catches for 106 yards on the day.
Flacco then hit tight end Dennis Pitta for a 20-yard touchdown for a 17-6 lead.
The defense is relentless in pressuring Andrew Luck. We’re halfway through the third quarter.
The final score might read as a blowout win for the playoff savy Baltimore Ravens over the young, upstart Indianapolis Colts, but this game was far from that.Both teams provided plenty of plays and miscues that will be talked about for days.
