Ravens’ Ray Lewis Used PEDs to Return in Time for Playoffs

Apparently Wes Welker’s wife forgot to add one item to her scathing Ray Lewis rant on Facebook: Cheater.

Patriots in for Physical Match-up Against Ravens

This isn’t the inexperienced trigger-shy Houston Texans we’re talking about. […]

Ray Lewis And The Patriot Way

And so it begins. In a development that surprised nobody, the Baltimore Ravens kicked off the trash talk before the Patriots had even finished defeating the Houston Texans on Sunday.

Patriots Report Card: Week 3 vs. Ravens

Before Sunday’s New England Patriots-Baltimore Ravens game, noted actor (also Ravens linebacker) Ray Lewis said, “Revenge is a dish best served cold.

Patriots Report Card: Week 18

Quarterback: B- If you told me Tom Brady had 42 attempts in a game, I’d tell you he easily threw for over 300 yards. And if you then told me he threw for 200 yards, I’d be surprised.  But 154 yards? On 42 attempts? You’re kidding, right? No, unfortunately not. This is what happened on […]
