The Ravens and Broncos battled into two overtimes Saturday in one of the most memorable NFL playoff games in history, and the leaders of each team played their hearts out. Peyton Manning and Ray Lewis, each a little long in the tooth, put forth amazing efforts before the Ravens eventually prevailed 38-35. Said Lewis after the game: “I’ve never been a part of a game so crazy in my life.”
Peyton then paid Lewis the ultimate show of respect by sticking around (with his family) a hour and a half after the final whistle to chat with the Ravens linebacker, who is retiring at the end of the season. The picture of the two likely future Hall of Fame players, with Manning’s son in the foreground, is priceless.
