You know how we always hear that Ray Lewis calls plays before they actually happen?
Well ESPN has the Ravens middle linebacker mic’d, so we can all see exactly how true that is.
It really is like Lewis is in the NFC’s huddle. And just because it’s the Pro Bowl doesn’t mean he’s not coaching his teammates. The AFC defense is taking its orders straight from Lewis.
Lewis called out the first play, a screen to the left side. Then he told Pittsburgh linebacker Lamarr Woodley to cover Jason Witten to the outside. The pass went outside, straight to Witten. Lewis called exactly what the next play was, another pass to Witten.
Despite the coaching, the NFC scored a touchdown on the drive. Hey, Ray can’t do it all.
