Derrick Mason believes the Jets have a better chance to win a Super Bowl this year than the Ravens. If Mason proves wrong and Baltimore does win a title, Ray Lewis says he won’t play another season.
“My son will be a junior this year. I only play this game for another ring,” Lewis told Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com. “If we can win it this year, and I’m being brutally honest with you, if we win it this year, I’m gone to then spend as much time as I can with him. I’m gone to be with my son. And I feel like now we have enough pieces in place to make a good run at the Super Bowl.”
We tend to agree. The offense has questions, but it’s average at worst. The defense should remain stellar. Perhaps most important: The Ravens and Steelers get to fatten up against the NFC West in their out of conference games. That could be the difference between making the playoffs or getting a bye for the AFC North champ.
Vegas has the Ravens at 14-1 to win a title. That makes them the eighth most likely team to win it all, which sounds about right.
That also means the odds are heavily in favor of Lewis playing longer than one season.
