Former Ravens first-round draft pick Michael Oher is two teams removed from his time in Baltimore, but is returning to a second Super Bowl almost directly because of what he was able to do in Baltimore.
Oher, a divisive figure with the Ravens because of his draft status and the lofty expectations placed on him, was personally recruited to the Super Bowl-bound, 15-1 Carolina Panthers by the presumptive NFL MVP, quarterback Cam Newton.
Newton’s brother Cecil was on the Ravens practice squad for two years while Oher was in Baltimore, and assured Newton of Oher's quality as a lineman and a teammate.
Forget about the -1 they just put up against New Orleans. Focus more on the fact that they allowed just 22 points to the most potent offense in football. Also, they face the hapless Colts this week, which is always a nice holiday treat for a fantasy D. Last week: 22 points allowed This week: @Indianapolis
