Instant Reaction: Indy 9 – Ravens 24

 

Ray Lewis takes center stage in Ravens victory

 

Instant Reaction: Ravens 2013 playoff victory over Indy

 

Matt Jergensen:

“Watching Lewis take a victory lap will rank among the greatest sports moments I’ve experienced live.  Defense was stellar and the offense was effective. If Rice doesn’t fumble twice this a huge blowout.”

 

Ben Zinman:

“The Ravens had the bend don’t break philosophy on defense and were able get the passing game going in the 2nd half. The defensive pressure on Luck was effective enough to cause him to miss on many of his throws, coupled with many dropped passes on the part of the receivers. The Colts had nearly 30 more possessions then the Ravens and the D for the Ravens seemed to display almost as much energy when they went ahead by 2 scores, as they did at the beginning of the contest.Of course Ray Lewis was his typical self in the last home game of his Hall of Fame career garnering 13 tackles. Next up Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.”

 

Gene Winner:

“Ray Lewis what a player! Proud to be watching today!  What Ray’s done for the organization and players around him is off the charts. It was fitting tribute that the defense didn’t allow a TD today.  Loved the way the defense blitzed today, they made Luck uncomfortable. My MVP’s are the Kruger, the Secondary, Boldin and Pierce.  Let’s give a little credit to Flacco, he had some nice touches on the deep throws today. Next week will be a tough match-up, but for now we can enjoy.”

    First and foremost, congrats to the whole Ravens organization! Nice win!
    Just wanted to point out something else Ray has done. By beating the NY Giants in 1958′, Johnny Unitas, put Baltimore (And the NFL) on the map! After losing the Colts, and going 13 years without a team, in 2000, Ray Lewis put Baltimore back on the map, by leading a solid defense and beating the NY Giants in the Superbowl! Ray’s passion, commitment, and intensity(And still continues it) for being the best has done so much for this franchise and city!
    Now, in this NFL “new era” of “Offense, Offense, Offense”(Not to mention the changes about tackling/hitting etc. for “player safety”) made purely for the masses, not football purists, we may never see a defensive player play like Ray again.
    Thanks Ray! Go Ravens!
