A few great things happened on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium.
The Ravens won and improved their record to 5-1, tied for best in the AFC.
Jacoby Jones tied the NFL record for the longest kickoff return for a touchdown with 108 yards.
However, the taste of victory was bittersweet as the Ravens lost two of their best players to injury for the rest of the season. Cornerback Lardarius Webb tore his ACL and linebacker and team leader Ray Lewis tore his triceps.
Lardarius tore the ACL on his other leg during his rookie season and came back stronger and became a crucial part of the Ravens defense. He’ll be back stronger next year, no doubt.
A cloud of mystery seems to be forming over the future of Ray Lewis after spending 17 abusive seasons in the NFL. I haven’t talked to Ray personally, but let me tell you a little secret…
Ray will be back next year.
Knowing how determined, focused and passionate the man is about the game of football and life…I don’t believe for a second that this is how he is going to make his exit. Only time will tell for sure, however I truly believe in my heart we haven’t seen the last of number 52.
