The thing is, though, that victory was tough to wrap my brain around. This season, the Baltimore Ravens have had hey-diddle-diddle Ray Rice up the middle, the Ray Lewis retirement bowl, and the F-Bomb; they suffered a shocking late loss to the Redskins and pulled out a startling final drive win over New England; they had Terrell Suggs' remarkable comeback from a devastating injury that defied the medical odds; they even lost four out of five in December and still made the playoffs. Every step along the way, this season has been remarkable. Until the AFC Championship game. There was nothing remarkable about it, just the Ravens going up to New England and delivering a good, old-fashioned beatdown, and it couldn't make for a better fit to this roller-coaster season.
