With Sunday's complete 33-14 win over the New York Giants, the Baltimore Ravens secured at the same time, the AFC North title and at least one guaranteed home playoff game. Today is Christmas and if you are celebrating with your family and friends, take a moment to appreciate what your favorite team has achieved.
For the fifth straight season, the Ravens will be playing extra football while 20 other teams sit home and watch. Baltimore is the only team in the league that can currently say this, as John Harbaugh, Joe Flacco and Ray Rice has played in the post season every year they have been together as a trio in the NFL.
Most likely, they do not take it for granted and neither should you. While we have not yet made it to the ultimate game, the annual excitement in this town should be in full force, as not only will there be a playoff game here is a little under two weeks, it will be the hated Indianapolis Colts that are coming to town.
So while Santa came overnight and has now left, the Colts will be coming as well, but will be treated a lot more rudely than the fat guy in red.
Merry Christmas Ravens fans!!!
