At the age of 37, Ravens LB Ray Lewis decided this will be his final season in uniform. While every career ends at some point, Mike Florio calls today's decision curious. A week before the Ravens are set to face the Colts in an AFC wild card game, Florio notes this will be "a kick in the pants" for Baltimore knowing their leader is calling it quits after this season. After struggling for most of the year, the slate is clean and the Ravens have an opportunity to win a Super Bowl in honor of their vocal, physical, and spiritual leader.
