Ray Lewis calls win over Broncos among greatest in Ravens history

January 12, 2013|By Dan Loumena

Ray Lewis, the Ravens' soon-to-be-retired middle linebacker, tried to grasp the question of where the 38-35, double-overtime victory over the Denver Broncos ranked.

After shaking his head, blowing some air through his lips and saying, "God is amazing," the future Hall of Famer said it would have to rank as "one of the greatest victories in Ravens history."

Lewis is a two-time NFL defensive player of the year and was the heart and soul of a Ravens team that won Super Bowl XXXV. He was selected MVP of that Super Bowl, so he knows a great deal about the biggest victories in Ravens history.

The 13-time Pro Bowler said he challenged the Ravens to ignore everything outside of the locker room and practice field in preparation for the trip to Denver.

"When you look back at [the win] and recap, let all the emotions run down, it'll probably be one of the greatest victories in Ravens history," Lewis said.

He didn't have a bad outing himself. Lewis made 17 tackles in the game. Not bad for a 17-year veteran who was supposed to be lost for the season when he tore a triceps in a win over the Dallas Cowboys on Oct. 15.
