Even though Ray Lewis is arguably the greatest linebacker to play in the NFL and at the age of 37 he returned from a torn triceps injury to record 13 tackles in the Ravens playoff win over the Indianapolis Colts, The Denver Post columnist, Mark Kiszla, is giving the Ravens no respect or a chance to win this weekend.

Kiszla wrote: "But, like [Ray] Lewis, their very passionate but washed-up warrior, the [Baltimore] Ravens now seem better at striking a pose than striking fear in the hearts of a foe."

Despite Denver being the heavy favorites and on a hot streak, here are five reasons why the Ravens will upset the Broncos this weekend.
