The Ravens were furious about a hit on QB Joe Flacco that didn’t draw a flag.
Ravens RB Ray Rice, who had a career-best 233 total yards, took off his shoes in the locker room and told reporters, “I’m going to give them to my mom for Christmas. I’m going to sign them and give them to her on top of her other gifts.”

Ravens LB Ray Lewis fired up his teammates with a motivational speech.
