What it means: Even though they slumped in December, the Ravens and Joe Flacco are still tough to knock out early in the playoffs. With a strong game by wide receiver Anquan Boldin and a stingy defense, Baltimore won a postseason game for the fifth straight season. The Ravens also extended the career of Ray Lewis, who announced last week that he would retire at the end of the season. Baltimore won its 13th straight home game with Lewis on the field.
