The Ravens Are Victorious!!

They made us all sweat, but in the end they have pulled it out 38-35 in 2OT to defeat the 10 point favorite Denver Broncos.

Joe Flacco has now in back to back years completely outplayed arguably the two best quarterbacks in NFL history in Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. I am having trouble coming up with all the words and thoughts to get on the page because I am so excited. This was one of the best NFL playoff games I have ever seen.

And The Ravens won.

Ray Lewis won.

Lewis was highly emotional after the game and you can understand why. The Ravens season is still alive, Ray Lewis career is still alive. The Ravens have lived to fight another day.

Peyton Manning has not.

The Ravens started their franchise history by going 2-0 against Peyton Manning and the Colts. since then it has been 9 straight victories by the colts, 2 in the playoffs with the Ravens as favorites(both times the Colts advanced to the Super Bowl). Now the Ravens have finally returned the favor.

If you did not like this game, you dont like football.

I will get up a post about my observations in a bit, but right now my head is all over the place. GO RAVENS!!!!!
