The Baltimore Ravens will take on the San Francisco 49ers this weekend in New Orleans, Louisiana for a shot at the second Super Bowl title in the Ray Lewis era. Following the matchup against the 49ers, Lewis intends to retire from the NFL after 17 seasons in Baltimore and potentially one more ring added to his trophy collection. Although Lewis remains adamant about his retirement plans heading into perhaps the biggest game of his career, doubt remains about whether or not the superstar linebacker will actually decide to finally call it quits. Veteran safety and longtime teammate Ed Reed isn’t sold on the fact that Lewis will actually retire claiming his friend may play at least 10 more games before retirement. It remains to be seen whether or not the future Hall of Famer will go through with his plans to end his career following Super Bowl XLVII, but with a close friend and teammate claiming that Lewis will not retire and still has some football left in him, anything can happen from here on out with the game against the 49ers potentially not his last time in a Ravens uniform. As for the matchup against the 49ers, the Ravens will be underdogs for a third straight playoff game. Baltimore has been incredible in their playoff push to the Super Bowl upsetting the number one seeded Denver Broncos in the Mile High City followed up by an impressive win over the rival New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium. Baltimore has been able to defy the odds over the course of these playoff games and may continue to do so in the Super Bowl with Colin Kaepernick and company potentially the team’s next victim in the postseason. At this point in time, the 49ers are sporting a -3.5 point spread in their favor with many believing the Ravens’ defense simply won’t be able to contain Kaepernick, but anything can happen on Super Bowl Sunday.
