No one predicted the Ravens would go into Denver and upset the top seeded Broncos — seriously, 49 states thought the Ravens were going to lose.
After the game, Vonta Leach apologized to ESPN and the NFL for ruining the Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning matchup in the AFC championship game. “We did not get the memo to stay home and not show up for the game,” the Ravens fullback tweeted.
No they didn’t.
With Leach’s help up front, Ray Rice carried the ball 30 times for 131 yards and a touchdown. He averaged 4.4 yards per carry.
