The Baltimore Ravens have defeated the Indianapolis Colts 24-9 in an emotional game.

The storylines were never more exciting for this matchup. Chuck Pagano was back on the sideline after winning his battle with cancer, while every game Ray Lewis plays from here on out could be his last.

Give credit to the Colts for a great season. They went from the NFL's worst team to one of its best. Chuck Pagano and Andrew Luck have this team looking like a real force.

Today was the Ravens' day, though. With a hardnosed defensive effort and some big passing plays, the Ravens were able to pull away in the second half. 

Joe Flacco had some great throws, but Anquan Boldin was the key cog on offense. He was amazing on multiple acrobatic catches. Bernard Pierce also had a big day on the ground.

The Ravens are going to head to Denver to take on the Broncos next week.
