The Baltimore Ravens lead by Ray Lewis just defeated the New England Patriots to make Super Bowl 47 in what promises to be a great, great matchup. Not only is at a Harbaugh Brothers Bowl its going to be Ray Lewis’ final stand and that means the Ravens will be super charged. But expect the Niners to play tough. They haven’t lost a SB in their 5 previous appearances. Montana, Rice, and Steve Young may be gone but these young Niners are tough and resilient. Whatever the outcome expect Super Bowl 47 to a great, great matchup of two great teams!!

Lewis had 17 tackles in an upset win against Denver last week. He led the Ravens again in tackles this week, picking up eight as Baltimore amazingly shut out Tom Brady and the Patriots in the second half of a 28-13 win. Much like Atlanta tight end Tony Gonzalez, who appears set on retiring despite being among the best at his position, a linebacker who piles up 38 tackles in three playoff games doesn’t seem to be at the end of the line as a productive NFL player. Lewis’ comeback from a torn triceps hasn’t been just for show – he has been a major key to this run to the AFC championship. According to ESPN, Brady was 67-0 at home in his career when leading at halftime. The Ravens won at Denver when they had almost no chance in the final minute of the fourth quarter last week, so beating those odds weren’t too much for Baltimore, especially led by a linebacker who beat long odds to play again this season, much less finish his career in a Super Bowl. “To see us here today holding this trophy, God is absolutely amazing,” Lewis said during the postgame trophy presentation on CBS.

Ray Lew Emotional Interview. Baltimore’s Justin Tucker kicked a 47-yard field goal 1:42 into the second overtime Saturday, ending the NFL’s longest game in 26 years and giving the Ravens a 38-35 win over the Denver Broncos in the AFC playoffs. The Ravens (12-6) forced overtime on a 70-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco to Jacoby Jones with 31 seconds left in regulation, after Jones slipped behind a pair of Broncos defenders along the sideline. Late in the first overtime, Peyton Manning threw across his body on second down and Corey Graham picked off the ball to give the Ravens the ball on the Denver 45. Two plays later, the first overtime ended and the teams switched directions, and after three Ray Rice runs up the middle, Tucker sailed his game-winner through the uprights with room to spare. Baltimore will travel to either New England or Houston for the AFC title game next Sunday, as linebacker Ray Lewis’ career extends at least one more game.
