Nearing the end of his 16th year in the NFL, Ray Lewis could be on the cusp of cementing a Hall of Fame career that includes 13 Pro Bowls, two NFL Defensive Player of the Year awards and a Most Valuable Player honor in Super Bowl XXXV. But the Ravens inside linebacker seemed to throw water on the theory that he would retire after this season if the team captures Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis. Asked whether two Super Bowl rings would be enough, Lewis replied, “I don't know.

ALBANY, N.Y. — There are two Super Bowl rings in his jewelry drawer, two Super Bowl most valuable player cars in his driveway, and two Pro Bowls on his resume. But there is a feeling in Giants camp that we have not yet seen the best of Eli Manning. And that is not good news for the rest of the NFC. "I still think he is an ascending player," Giants general manager Jerry Reese said of the 31-year-old, nine-year veteran. "He is in the wheelhouse of his career. " He will get no arguments from Peyton's little brother.

Kevin Cowherd 1-1 two weeks ago 181-85 overall Patriots 28, Giants 24 Aren't you just sick to death of Tom Brady? With the three Super Bowl rings, the hair, the super-model wife, the UGG boots? Too bad. He'll be all over the highlights again after he rebounds from his awful performance against the Ravens and picks apart the Giants' defense for the win.

Since the New England Patriots moved into Gillette Stadium, no team in the NFL has compiled more wins at home than New England. The Patriots are 67-13 in the regular season there and 8-2 in the postseason. Wintry conditions in the months of December and January and a raucous fan base have helped turn that stadium in Foxborough, Mass., into one of the more imposing venue in which to play. But running back Ricky Williams said the New England mystique is blown out of proportion.

Coughlin leads the pack Sam Farmer Los Angeles Times How should these four coaches be sorted? The one definitely headed to Canton? It's Bill Belichick. The one with the most recent ring? It's Tom Coughlin. The hungriest? It's John Harbaugh. The one who has done the best job this season? It's Jim Harbaugh. Obviously, all four know how to push the right buttons to motivate their teams, and each understands how to build a team for success in January (and maybe February)

When the phone call came, asking if he would present the silver trophy at the Super Bowl in February, Raymond Berry took it for a prank. "You've got to be kidding," he told the caller. "Is this a joke?" Frank Supowitz, the NFL's senior vice president of events, assured Berry that the offer was legit. The league wanted the Baltimore Colts Hall of Fame receiver to take part in the post-game ceremonies, with the world watching, at Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis on Feb. 5. Berry said yes and hung up, agog.

Raymond Berry can't fathom the odds. Who'd have thought that, the same year he was asked to present the Vince Lombardi Trophy, the two locales most dear to his heart would be playing on Sunday for a Super Bowl berth? That's Baltimore, the town Berry helped win two world championships as a Colts receiver, and New England, the club he later coached to the Super Bowl. Either the Ravens or Patriots will advance Sunday to the big game, giving Berry a rooting bias in Indianapolis two weeks hence.

I generally like Google's search engine. Its doodles, including yesterday's noting Charles Dickens' birthday, are clever. And it corrects my sometimes aberrant spelling, in the most polite way. But Google sure can be frustrating sometimes. Like ysterday, when I checked Google News for the latest hot topics on the web. Under the category of books, the top story was this: Las Vegas books win on Super Bowl XLVI USA TODAY (blog) - ‎3 hours ago‎. Gamblers wagered $93889840 across the state's 184 legal sports books , according to Frank Streshley of the Nevada Gaming Control Board.

Bill Belichick gave his players Sunday off, a day to rest and enjoy their dominating divisional round win over the Denver Broncos the night before. But when they returned to Gillette Stadium yesterday, the message was clear: "[It's a] one-game season," linebacker Rob Ninkovich said. "You can't dwell on the Broncos; it's over with. We have to move on. We have a good team coming in here, so we have to prepare for them. " The Patriots went to work preparing for the Baltimore Ravens, who come to town Sunday for the AFC Championship and a berth in Super Bowl XLVI on the line, and to a man they were focused on the task at hand, not Saturday's victory, which ended a three-game postseason losing streak, or their 2009 wild-card loss to the Ravens, the second game of said streak.
