The interviews with Lewis are something to behold.
At another point, he shares his belief that the power outage during the Super Bowl was a conspiracy.
"I'm not gonna accuse nobody of nothing -- because I don't know facts," Lewis says in the film.

Not letting a lack of facts stop him, however, he then goes on to say, "But you're a zillion-dollar company, and your lights go out? No, no way."
But he's only warming up.
"If you grew up like I grew up and you grew up in a household like I grew up, then sometimes your lights might go out, because times get hard. I understand that. But you cannot tell me somebody wasn't sitting there and when they say, 'The Ravens (are) about to blow them out. Man, we better do something.'"
OK, that sounds a little wild, but give the filmmakers credit for getting Lewis to open up and share his view of how the NFL and the world work.
In the end, probably the best recommendation for "America's Game" is the backstage access NFL Films gets. But they don't rest on that. They push for great pictures and revealing audio like the interviews with Lewis, Flacco and Harbaugh. And some of the sideline audio is even better -- Flacco telling Harbaugh, "get off my back." Flacco complaining about the conservative plays being called and saying they will never get to the Super Bowl with that kind of offensive game plan.
We all know how it ends -- happily in New Orleans. But for all the Ravens video and TV I've seen in the last month, this is my favorite TV ride. Don't miss it at 9 p.m. tonight on the NFL Network.
