The Baltimore Ravens sent Ray Lewis out in style for what was Lewis’s last home game before his retirement by beating the Indianapolis Colts 24-9.
Lewis announced that he would not return to football next season in order to spend more time with his family.
Baltimore shined at M&T Bank Stadium and the defense held rookie quarterback Andrew Luck out of the endzone all afternoon. Luck finished his day 28-of-54, 288 yards and one interception. Ravens linebacker Paul Kruger had 2.5 sacks against the rookie phenom. The story of the day though was Ray Lewis. Lewis missed several games this season and led the team with 13 tackles.
The Ravens offense shined and veteran wide receiver Anquan Boldin had a solid day. Boldin caught five passes for 145 yards and one touchdown. Quarterback Joe Flacco continued his winning trend in first-round playoff games and finished his afternoon 12-of-23 for 282 yards and two touchdowns.
Baltimore will now travel to Denver to once again take on the Broncos and Peyton Manning.
