The Ravens honored former left tackle Jonathan Ogden with a halftime tribute, which included the presentation of his Pro Football Hall of Fame ring.
Ogden sported the Hall of Fame ring along with two Super Bowl championship rings.
"I wanted to thank everyone in Baltimore for supporting me all these years," Ogden said. "I wanted to win for you guys and share this moment with you guys."
Joining Ogden on the field for the ceremony were Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome, wearing his yellow Hall of Fame jacket, owner Steve Bisciotti and team president Dick Cass.
A lengthy series of Ogden highlights, including blocks on Warren Sapp, Simeon Rice and Derrick Brooks, were shown on the Jumbotron. The video included commentary by Newsome, who called Ogden "the foundation" the Ravens were built on.
Ogden became the first draft pick in Ravens franchise history heading into their inaugural season in 1996, selected fourth overall out of UCLA. Ogden was named to 11 consecutive Pro Bowls and won Super Bowl XXXV with the Ravens during the 2000 NFL season.
