After 17 years of being the most dominating linebacker in the NFL, Ray Lewis is finally hanging up the cleats after this final Super Bowl run.
Before he announced his retirement, the Baltimore Ravens were already going to have an emotional boost with Lewis returning for the playoffs. However, now that this is most likely his last game in M&T Bank Stadium, everyone in Raven nation is going to be fired up for this game.
For so many years, Lewis has been the heart and soul of not just the Ravens team, but of the city of Baltimore. With his bone-chilling pregame speeches and relentless effort on the field, Lewis has given the Ravens and their fans a swagger that will last forever.
The Indianapolis Colts need to watch out because when Lewis makes his last pregame introduction at home, the stadium is going to be louder than ever. Expect the Ravens to be playing with a ton of emotion on both sides of the ball, as they know this is Lewis' final shot at a Super Bowl.
With their captain and field general back in the lineup, the Ravens are going to be one scary team to play throughout the playoffs.
