Ravens Fans Gearing up for Pivotal Matchup

Posted: Updated:

CAMBRIDGE, Md. - The Ravens captured the Lombardi trophy back in 2000, and this year they are making another push to bring it back home to Baltimore.

Restaurant owner Marcia Christopher is a Ravens fan through and through. For her, a win Saturday means two things: her team advances and her restaurant in Cambridge will stay packed.

"I wish it would have been a Sunday game, rather than a Saturday game, but it is at 4:30 so I think we'll have a good crowd upstairs and down," said Christopher.

For many Ravens fans, they're hoping Saturday's game against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos is not their last watching Ray Lewis in the purple and black.

"I hate to see it end but he's had a great career," said Mark Figgs of Laurel, Del. "I have followed him from when he came here and it's sad that's it's over. But it's the nature of the business. His body is beat up, worn and it's time for him to retire."

A trip to the Super Bowl for the Ravens was spoiled by the New England Patriots last year. Kemp Brooks of Cambridge said if it is a rematch, he and his friends will be at the game in New England.

"The last time we traveled for a playoff game was the first time we beat New England and that was in Foxborough and we traveled to that and we are superstitious so we need to travel to the game and try and get a win," said Brooks.

Ravens vs. Broncos starting at 4:30 p.m. It's win or go home.
