2) Super Bowl XLVII February 3, 2013

No better way to say goodbye to our fearless leader Ray Lewis than to retire with one more Super Bowl victory. With this win, Ray Lewis became the player with the longest gap between Super Bowl victories.

But in my opinion, this one wasn’t necessarily for Ray, it was more for Ed Reed. We were all worried the greatest safety of all time might never see a ring. With all the great years Ed gave us, would his hard work ever come to fruition? Losing to the Colts in the 2006 playoffs was bad enough, but the 2011 AFC title game was a heart-breaker.

This Super Bowl game left me truly believing all is right in the football universe. I voted Jacoby Jones MVP of the game but what do I know, I only watched the game (sorry Flacco). This game is also a testament to the genius of Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome. Ray Lewis and Ed Reed would be gone soon, and Newsome didn’t miss a beat as he ushered in a culture change in Baltimore. The Ravens now had some of the best offensive players in the league and were no longer one-dimensional. Great game, boys.
