Throwback Thursday: Ray Lewis Absolutely Levels Chad Johnson

Ray Lewis turned 39 years old on Thursday, so it makes perfect sense to honor the Baltimore Ravens legend on "Throwback Thursday" with a clip of one of the funnier moments of his 17-year career.

Former Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Johnson had a good relationship with Lewis on and off the field. Johnson was always trying to have fun on the field, but Lewis would make the wideout pay if he came across the middle of the field against Baltimore.

During one of their meetings, the 6'1", 188-pound receiver tried to lay out the 6'1", 245-pound linebacker with a block. It's not hard to predict what actually happened.

When the two met up at the Pro Bowl, they shared a good laugh about the play.
